Yeah I thought so too. But keeping him on the 40 for months and months when there's no chance that he'll pitch anytime soon complicates things. He's a reliever. I'm not saying that he should've been on it ALL this time but if the Reds need a spot will putting him on the 60 day DL now make THAT much of a difference in the long run.
