Wayne Krivsky helped start the Reds strong presence in Latin America with the hiring of Tony Arias in September of 2006. If not for Krivsky, the Reds may not have signed all these Latin prospects in the last couple years.

From Baseball America:

Since the Reds brought aboard Tony Arias from the Blue Jays in September 2006 after he spent seven seasons as Toronto's director of Latin American operations, the Reds have paid $2 million for Juan Duran and $2.5 million for Yorman Rodriguez in 2008, then followed that up with the Aroldis Chapman signing and another hefty bonus for Venezuelan shortstop Humberto Valor last year.
