It seems like he could be stashed away at triple A as insurance in case the Reds aren't as fortunate with rotation health next year, and could provide a better option than Todd Redmond or Jeff Francis.
My first reaction is to say no to Bedard.
But when you consider what Brian Price has done with this rotation, maybe he could revive Bedard's career.
