    More pitchers for WK to check out?

    Per ESPN:

    Florida Marlins: designated pitchers Todd Wellemeyer and Franklyn German for assignment.

    Good idea to try taking a flier on either of them? Throw enough crap against the wall, some of it has to stick, right?

    I would definately check out German, he's still pretty young at 26. If i'm thinking of the right person this guy threw pretty hard. Checking out his stats he did pretty well last year. Posted an ERA of 3.66. Does have some control issues walking 14 while striking out 6 in 12 innings this season. Any better than White? Perhaps...

    I was thinking German might be worth a look, but then I saw his career numbers.

    He's worse than Rick White

    A career WHIP of 1.776 isn't good.

    Add German to yan, and Coffee and we'd have a good start to an offensive line...

    While a career Whip of 1.7 is not good by any means, I would much rather have him than Rick White. While they both arent great I see a lot more potential in German (26) than White (37).

    I would much rather have effective relief pitchers than either of them.

    German, easily. Throws hard and is on the right side of 30. Who knows what could happen. It is definitely worth a shot, especially if won't cost much.

    I don't get why everyone likes German. I believe he typically goes 3-0 and then starts working. That is not the kind of guy that the Reds need in their ballpark. Wellemeyer, I believe, is the better of the two, but I hope the Reds take fliers on both and wait for better merchandise.
