This is about the Reds assuring themselves they have depth at AAA if needed in the starting pitching ranks. Cheap insurance.
Exactly. This move is to guarantee him major league minimum pay after he is DFA'd. If he chooses Free Agency, its likely he'd only get a minor league deal for about 20% of this one. Keeps him in the fold.
My guess is the move to DFA Redmond will come this week. If the Reds sign Broxton, the 40 man will be full. If the Reds still have Ludwick on their to do list, not to mention a possible 2013 return of Rolen, they are going to need the roster spot very soon IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
