Well, remember that the Reds have "created" injuries in the past to open up slots. So who knows...maybe they'll decide to "play it safe" with Jerry.
Trading someone would be great to free up the slot AND the payroll, but trades don't just happen. Like everyone clammoring to trade Junior. In order for that to work...you've got to find a trading partner. And at this point of the season, that's not too likely. So yeah, I'd say Javy's the most likely target.
