    Minor transactions

    Roster moves: The Reds announced that pitcher Tom Shearn and catcher Alvin Colina cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Louisville. Shearn was 3-0 with a 4.96 ERA in seven games, including six starts with Cincinnati as a 30-year-old rookie. He spent most of 2007 at Louisville. Colina was claimed off waivers from the Rockies' Triple-A club in September.

    Doesn't look to be good offensively. He had a .563 OPS last year in AAA.

    Re: Minor transactions

    Shearn was the one pitcher who did well when he was called up. I believe he had 4 quality starts (out of 6 starts) against teams fighting for playoffs in playoff environments.

    What pitchers, currently on the 40-man, fix the pitching problems? Besides Harang, Arroyo, Weathers, and Burton every pitcher called up failed pretty miserably last year. Please let me know who you want to see make the team out of spring. Shearn would make a perfect long man/spot starter, where Sarloos, Gosling, and Santos failed last year.

    I can see why the Reds haven't had a winning season in over ten years.

    im pretty sure the move is just to make room on the 40 man.

    I see Shearn's one chance being a middle reliever, following a hard thrower. Maybe he could be effective at effecting a hitter's timing. That's about it. No such spot? Then he has no spot, IMO.
