Barry LarkinTelevision analyst and former Reds shortstop Barry Larkin has left MLB Network to take a job with ESPN, according to a report by USA Today.

It's unclear exactly what role Larkin will take on at ESPN, but he has experience both in the announcing booth and in studio. ESPN, of course, broadcasts several national games per week during the season along with its flagship nightly highlights and analysis show Baseball Tonight.

Larkin took a role with MLB Network shortly before it launched on Jan. 1, 2009.

Since his retirement in 2004, Larkin has also served as the bench coach for Team USA at the 2009 World Baseball Classic and as an adviser in the Washington Nationals' front office.
