This is either the second or third time that Walt and the Reds have passed on him. Usually, if teams are enamored of a minor leaguer they gave up in a trade, they'll snap him up if he hits waivers. I'd say the Reds letting him pass through waivers speaks volumes about what they think of him. Either that or old Walt is 'asleep at the wheel' again.
