The only other legit choice was Reynolds. But he started all season so he is being groomed as the backup starter in case of another injury.
Not big on Logan at this point but unaware of other good minor league relievers ready for bigs.
Doubt this is a forty man roster thing.
Yep. Time to make a trade. Don't like the idea of dealing one of the top 5 prospects for a relief pitcher, but I'd make Travieso available and try to make a bigger deal where a couple of areas are addressed with competent rental players. Probably can't get stars with what the Reds could/should reasonably offer.

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