Homer takes longer than probably anyone on the staff, so he's a poor fit for the bullpen stuff not withstanding.
So short of a trade, I'm not sure where you'd see him factoring in... at least in a capacity where you see the Reds being able to rebuild him this year.
I would just move him to the pen and let him replace Chapman's spot. Nothing more or less. Chapman can't warm up quick either fwiw.
