    Something's Coming?? Germano Optioned To Louisville

    Per Marc After The Game:

    MILWAUKEE -- Following the game, the Reds optioned Justin Germano back to Louisville.

    Narron said Germano was going back no matter how he pitched, so there obviously is something going on here. The fifth starter's spot won't be needed again until next Saturday, if my math is correct. That start could go to Brandon Claussen, who would be on regular rest if he makes his Monday rehab start as scheduled, and the Reds could use the roster spot in the meantime for another bullpen arm or bench help.

    Still, as conservative as the Reds tend to be with rehab assignments and seeing how things play out, I'm surprised they would commit to a schedule like that without knowing how Claussen performs Monday. Which raises the possibility that a trade is in the works. I don't think that would surprise anyone, though I haven't heard anything specific today.

    I'm sure it'll all become crystal clear by tomorrow, but this one's got me a bit confused at the moment.

    not necessarily. They don't need a 5th starter until next Saturday and it will likely be Claussen.

    So Germano could have thrown a no hitter and still got sent back to AAA?

    Could Wise be coming back?

    Heck, we all know we're going to make at least one more move. Just leave the roster slot open until said move is made.

    Could be a bullpen arm or a bat up from the minors until Claussen's activated Saturday or there could be something up

    Re: Something's Coming?? Germano Optioned To Louisville

    The key here is that the Reds acted immediately after the game. Is there another player on rehab who needs to be promoted? I don't think anyone's return is imminent. Mercker has some time to go. Claussen needs another rehab start and isn't needed for another few starts. This looks and smells like a clearing of the roster for a move. Here's hoping it is a good move that signals a strong finish to the season.

    Doesn't Wise have to stay down for 10 days?

    Wise can't come back for 10 days (regardless of the DFA) unless there's an injury, IIRC.

    I'd rather have Germano up here then Claussen.

    Hopefully a trade is coming.

    Mark Redman or Kyle Lohse?

    Both former and current Twins.

    If either of those happens, I give anyone permission to crack my ribcage open without anesthetic.
