    Sorry to be stupid about this guys, but I've been wondering. Did we have to make a 40 man roster move to get Willis on or did we have an open space?

    In addition to Ryan Smith being released, so were Tzu-Kai Chiu and Mike Henry.

    Why in the world would they release a guy with a 0.00 ERA in the Cal League? Maybe it was a fluke, but wouldn't you let him fail first?

    Perhaps it was an off the field issue? Pure speculation on my part, but the numbers were ok. He just came back from an injury, so even if he wasn't "right" you imagine that they would give him time to get back.

    Unless it was a character issue, the Reds must have felt his stuff didn't translate to the high minors.

    A nice, detailed story about the Reds signing a former University of Kentucky safety, Matt Lentz, from a tryout camp.
