    Having an extra option will add to his trade value

In other words, could they bring up, say, Francisco, now, send him back down in a couple weeks, and have him eligible for the postseason even if he's not called back up until around Sept. 5 or 10?
    He has to be on the active roster on Aug 31. If he is called up September 1, he's not eligible. If he was on the active roster all year and then sent down Aug 30, and recalled September 1, he's not eligible.

    Thanks. So, effectively, the postseason roster has to be SET on Aug. 31. The full 25. And only an injury can alter it.

    In the Reds' case, I think there's still an unusual number of players who might be in contention for spots. In the bullpen alone, the pool consists of 1) Cordero, 2) Rhodes, 3) Masset, 4) Isringhausen, 5) Springer, 6) Ondrusek, 7) Smith, 8) Bray, 9) Chapman, 10) Fisher, 11) Burton. I'd say that Fisher's and Burton's chances are slim, but probably better than Owings' or Herrera's.

    Jordan Smith, in particular, has complicated all of this. I never expected him to place himself so squarely in the picture at so early a juncture. But he's been terrific.

    But this is getting far afield of the subject . . .
