    Hughes waived, claimed by PHI; Kuhnel selected; Bowman recalled; Romano optioned

    Cincinnati Reds
    @Reds

    The #Reds have recalled RHP Matt Bowman and selected the contract of RHP Joel Kuhnel from the Triple-A @LouisvilleBats.

    RHP Sal Romano has been optioned to Louisville. RHP Jared Hughes has been claimed off waivers by the Phillies.

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Not surprised. Bell/DJ didn’t seem to like Hughes for higher leverage spots.

    Overall Jared was better than expected for Reds.

    Another move that seems pointed to 2020, Kuhnel gets his chance.

    That explains his 3 inning outing yesterday. Guy’s arm is probably gonna be jello for 2 weeks

    A bit unexpected. Guess they didn't plan on bringing back Hughes and figured this way they could save a few bucks. They'd have traded him for cash/PTBNL if there was still an August trade period, but there isn't, so like a Freddy Galvis he's just waived.

    Best of luck to Hughes, he mostly over-delivered for the Reds. Interested to see if Kuhnel's live arm is ready for prime time.

    Like Hernandez, Hughes seems like a really good dude who gives it his all every time. I hope he finds success with the Phillies.

    Thank you to Hughes for being the only competent Reds pitcher yesterday.

    Hughes and Votto were the only players on the 25 man to be born in the 80s before they grabbed Galvis. It's nice of the team to pick up Galvis so Votto won't feel too old.

    Giving up 8 runs while getting 2 outs isn’t competent?

    Man are your standards high.

    Seriously they had to know they were cutting him right? He didn’t do anything yesterday that would make the FO go “alright that’s it. We gotta get rid of this guy NOW!”

    In his defense, Bowman hasn't given up a run since returning to Louisivlle. I'd probably have gone Alaniz but I don't think it's all that important who exactly the last man in the bullpen is right now. Their spot on the roster is very tenuous.

    I thought for the most part he pitched well this season for the Reds. Take away one appearance up in Colorado, and his ERA is 3.04. Makes no sense to me. Career ERA of 2.83. Reasonable team option for 2020. That seems like the type of pitcher the Reds will be looking for.
