He has always been an innings eater back of the rotation guy. Although his numbers look bad, some of them are actually not terrible at all. He's pitched 80 innings and given up 10 hr's thats not bad, also his GB/AO is 2-1. His salary is 3.5 million so he's owed @ 2million left this year. I wonder if by acquiring him, then we move Claussen to the pen, then drop Standridge is our bullpen stronger.

Indians trade:Jason Johnson and minor league arm or cash

Reds trade:Ryan Wagner
