Me too, but I'd rather they leave him in AAA and maintain the illusiion that he can be something more. IMO his value lies in what he may bring back in a deal. The Reds could use another "find" and if its to be Rule 5, it seems that role is the most logical in terms of needing some one to fill it and in terms of being able to hide a guy on the roster while seeing what he has. Defensive IF may be another spot, but the Reds position player group is pretty crowded right now.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
