If I was Paul Janish I would go to Walt and ask for my release. I have a great glove, can play multiple positions and while not great at the plate, I am serviceable and yet I can't smell any playing time with the Reds even with this happening:
""Shortstop Orlando Cabrera said after Thursday’s game he has been dealt with a sprained ankle since early June, when the Reds visited Washington.
“Every day it’s a struggle, but I can still play,” Cabrera said."
Why not rest him and give Janish some playing time? It's not like Cabrera is hitting the cover off the ball.
