From a Cincinnati rumor blog:
The Reds, in search of a 5th reliever after being held so far by Dave Williams, the injured Brandon Claussen, and now Joe Mays have went to final measures to shore up the rotation: calling once again on Reds legend Jose Rijo, also 1990 World Series MVP.
The veteran pitcher who's career was cut short and after several comeback attempts, came back for a short time for the Reds a few years ago to have a solid season.
A Reds official said, "At this point we don't know where he is, the man hasn't been seen for several years."
The Reds have dispatched a search team deep into the Congo Jungle, where Rijo spottings have happened sporatically over the years. Legend has it, Rijo is searching for a rare plant that has been known to repair arms and return them to a state of strength of a 22 year old pitcher. The last attempt by a pitcher - former Red Josias Manzinillo - failed, and he has not been heard of since.
