    Reds may need to put their money into a relief pitcher before 9/1.

    They really should. The bullpen is depleted and will get exposed quickly in the playoffs.

    Placed On Waivers: Rafael Betancourt

    By Steve Adams [August 22 at 2:02pm CST]

    Here's a look at players who have been placed on revocable waivers today...

    The Rockies have placed closer Rafael Betancourt on revocable waivers, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter link). Rosenthal notes that the Rockies fully plan on exercising their $4.25MM club option on the 38-year-old right-hander, so they'd need to receive a good offer to move him. Betancourt recently returned from a month-long stretch on the DL with a groin injury but has a solid 3.54 ERA with 8.7 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 28 innings. Since joining the Rockies in 2009, Betancourt has a 3.02 ERA with 10.5 K/9, 1.7 BB/9 and an even 1.00 WHIP to go along with 57 saves. He'd be a welcome upgrade to any bullpen, but it seems unlikely that the Rockies would part with him after they held onto all of their trade chips prior to the non-waiver deadline.

    With Jonathan Broxton out for the season, the Reds make a lot of sense as a suitor for Rafael Betancourt, The Denver Post's Troy Renck opines (Twitter link). The Rockies put Betancourt on revocable waivers earlier today. The veteran closer is owed roughly $785K for the remainder of the season and has a $4.25MM club option for 2014. Renck notes that the Rockies plan to exercise Betancourt's option, and they'll explore bringing him back in 2014 even if he leaves on a waiver deal for the remainder of this season.

    He would fit in perfectly for the Reds!

    I don't get trading for a relief pitcher with how strong Hoover/Parra/LeCure have been and with the return of Marshall and Cueto on the horizon.

    Marshall and Cueto just started playing catch. I will be surprised if we see either in any significant role the rest of the 2013 season.

    Because relievers are plentiful, relatively cheap, and you can never have too many good ones.

    David Dejesus is on the move again. He is now a Ray. Traded for the inevitable PTBNL.

    ...as evidenced by tonight's game. Alfredo Simon in the 8th inning in a tie game is ugly.

    Kendrys Morales Claimed On Waivers

    By Steve Adams [August 26 at 2:04pm CST]

    An unknown team has claimed Kendrys Morales off revocable trade waivers from the Mariners, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (on Twitter). It has yet to be reported when Morales was claimed or by whom, but the Mariners and the claiming team would have two days to work out a deal.
