    Reds aquire a pitcher, and other transactions.

    TRANSACTIONS: Today the Reds claimed off waivers from the Giants LHP Jose Capellan; outrighted to Sarasota LHP Alexander Smit; optioned to Louisville RHP Richie Gardner and LHP Tyler Pelland; reassigned to minor league camp C Chris Kroski, LHP Matt Maloney and LHP Adam Pettyjohn...the Reds have 57 players remaining in camp…

    We will look back at this move in october and say this was the key to a pennant winning season.

    outrighted Smit-- so I assume that he cleared waivers and remains our property, and thereby clears a 40 man roster spot

    I see your wink, but this has been one of Krivsky's strong suits, picking up waiver wire guys in his tenure.

    Maybe he's out next Brandon Phillips? Who knows? I hope so anyway.

    If Capellan was a Rule V selection by the Giants, I assume he retains that status with us...

    Correct.

    Here's the stats for this Jose Capellan:

    http://minors.baseball-reference.com....cgi?pid=31934

    Hasn't pitched above the New York-Penn League.

    Highly unlikely Capellan will be getting a sniff of the majors this year.

    we'll need to acquire the other one to unite the set.

    they can room with the Drew Andersons.

    Reds will look anywhere for lefties.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm assuming since we claimed him off waivers that the Bosox declined to buy him back and we got him off waivers that way. Does that mean he no longer needs to stay on the ML roster? I'm thinking it does.

    Somehow, it's comforting to have a GM who collects pitchers from the scrap heap instead of toolsy outfielders.

    I believe he's got to stay on the roster all season even though he was a waiver wire pick up.

    I guess there is no room for Stanton now.

    he can't be stuck in the minors by the Reds, either he is on the 25 man roster or goes thru waivers before being offered back to Boston.
