Arias was an undrafted FA signed in 2003. This has been his best season but he's never advanced past low A in a weak KC system. In 33 innings so far he has allowed 32 hits, 30 Ks, 18 bb, 3 HRs, 14 ER and has a 1.28 FO/GO ratio. 23 y/o, a native of the DR. Strictly a reliever.

So I'm guessing cash considerations was not an option.

Or maybe Dayton was that in need of a reliever.

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed, but it's better than cash. I think the Reds just felt bad about stealing Jeff Keppinger and dumping Jason LaRue on them.
