I have no doubt Walt will deal for a serviceable left-handed bat if the Reds are still in the race come late June or anytime during July.
Blitz, I don't see why Walt has to wait until late June to get a lefty bat for the bench. We're not talking about the CC Sabathia deadline acquisition here. We're talking, maybe, Laynce Nix or somebody else who can hit righties reasonably well.
I think the Reds need a number of additional lefty hitters eventually. I don't like the current lefty/righty mix.
But to get a bench guy to unseat Harris shouldn't be a big deal. Walt should address that pretty quickly IMO.
