I think the Reds should try to re sign Chad Reineke to a minor league deal. I am not sure if Fred Lewis would accept one.

I think they are fairly crowded with minor league journeyman. They should keep the spot open to try and get another guy in the Willis mold who may be able to regain some of his form in a AAA rotation. If Reinecke is super in AAA, he still won't help the Reds much. A guy like say, Scott Kazmir in that spot though may find himself and be an asset for the major league team. If the Reds need to resort to guys like Reinecke to fill some spots, they are available later. I wouldn't clog the roster so early in the off-season.
