Reds bullpen is five guys. Five.
One of them, Bray, has had an injured spring. Lecure isn't an every day reliever, more of a multi-inning guy. Has been injured every season.
Current bullpen will result in a massive burden on Ondrusek and Arredondo.
These guys will need a hospital by some time in May.
Filling obvious holes with existing talent isn't pushing a panic button. It's dealing with reality, rather than ignoring it.
