I'm not in favor of bringing Javy back, but I don't agree that there is no need. The Reds have failed to replace him as a lefty hitter off the bench. The Reds have left themselves with a total of three lefty hitters on the team (excluding pitchers). I can understand why they didn't acquire Jermaine Dye. I can't understand why they haven't replaced Valentin.
Castillo would be ok except the primary role is hitting in pinch hit situations. Usually that's not a spot for a rookie.
