There is a place for soft tossers, especially ones with good control. Germano is supposed to have that. I wouldn't want 11 of him, but I'll take a couple. He doesn't walk a ton of guys, but is a little too hittable. He's allowed 8 HR this year, which probably puts him right where the rest of the Reds starters are.
I don't know if he's an upgrade over Belisle... in fact I'd wager he's a downgrade. But I prefer him to Rick White.
