Sometimes a guy just has a knack for getting hitters out. I assume he will be at AAA this year and it will be interesting to see if he continues to be effective.
Krivsky and Co. obviously like him, I don't think they wanted a pure throw in, but wanted somebody who has a chance to help the Reds, even in a limited role.
