Rose Jr. hopes to be back next year

        Pete Rose Jr. visited the Cincinnati Reds' clubhouse on crutches Wednesday and said he hopes to stay with the organization next year.

        Rose had his left knee cleaned out arthroscopically last Friday. He hit .264 in 35 games for Class Double-A Chattanooga before the knee injury sidelined him.

        The Reds gave Rose Jr. the chance to play in the majors in September 1997 and he went 2-for-14 with nine strikeouts. He got into a contract dispute after the season and was released from the Reds' farm system in 1998. The Reds brought him back last June when they needed players to fill out the roster at Chattanooga.

        Rose, 31, said the Reds have shown an interest in having him back in the minors next season.

        “There's no reason to go anywhere else,” he said. “I left on bad terms, now I'm back on good terms and I don't want to go anywhere else.”
