    Health is ok as far as known, but arm strength is the real question. If he was able to rebuild strength he may be an x factor as well, probably in the 2nd half if ever, probably never

    i think he was worth the risk to bring back.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    You have some serious competition for that fifth spot in the rotation between Ramirez, Belisle, Saarloos, Santos, Wilson, Bailey and a couple of others that I am probably forgetting.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    Wasn't he only getting the old heater up to 84-85 when trying to rehab last year? I'm sure several months of recovery have helped. I'll be interested to see what he does. If he can return close to where he was before the injury, he'd easily earn a bottom spot in this rotation I'd say.

    I've talked to Paul recently and he is feeling great and getting ready for spring training.

    The year prior to his injury, he gave the Reds several quality starts. Could have had 10 or 11 wins by the all-star break had it not been for the bullpen.

    True, but there have been too many arm injuries and there are too many candidates (dubious as they may be) to take a chance on a roster spot for Wilson IMO. If he wants to pitch at Louisville through Memorial Day and see how he's doing, then fine (as long as a younger developing pitcher isn't having his innings taken away).

    I would agree with your statement. I do think, however, if Wilson has any success with making the team, he will have had to earn it. I don't think the Reds are banking on anything with Paul.
