    Would he be worth a look? He could possibly help on the bench. He would also be a good option to rest some of the Reds Infielders. Would he be a good mentor to some of the younger players?
    Belliard, 35, hit just .216/.295/.327 with two homers in 185 plate appearances this season. He signed a one year contract worth $825K this winter.

    Hacker, and not worth a 40 man spot on this team.

    amazing that they cut Hudson off at the knees for him, there's got to be something else in that story.

    I think Buchholtz might be a good waiver wire pickup. The Reds could claim him and put him on the 60 day dl. Then see how he is for the 2011 season. He would be under team control for Two more years.


    Buchholz, 28, missed the entire 2009 season and most of 2010 due to Tommy John surgery. He returned in July to throw ten reasonably effective innings (4.50 ERA, 8.1 K/9) before landing on the disabled list with back stiffness. As Renck explains in a second tweet, Buchholz can choose to become a free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers, however he would forfeit the $163K left on his contract by doing so.
