    WTF Razor pulled off waivers

    An unknown team claimed Ramon Hernandez on waivers, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (Twitter links). However, the Reds pulled the catcher back off of waivers, so he'll be staying in Cincinnati.

    That was real smart. Now when Mez gets up here after the rosters expand he will have to share time with 2 other catchers. Heck, maybe he won't even get called up at all. Trading Hernandez would have opened a spot on the 40 man for Mez, that made to much sense I guess.

    Good move by the Reds, no need to give him up for nothing, either give up some quality for him or the Reds will take the draft pick once he moves on.

    If he doesn't accept arbitration, which is no certainty. If he does they are really in a pickle.

    It can't be assumed that the team who claimed him was interested in trading for him, or was willing to give up any value for him. Devin will be up on Sep. 1 at the latest and Having Ramon until the end of the year will not affect him as much as some would like to believe.

    The funny thing is, and I probably shouldn't admit this, my first thought is that the Cardinals claimed him to block the Reds from being able to make a trade. That of course is a rediculous thought and would be done only out of spite. in other words, something right up the Cardinals alley if you ask me. LOL

    I'm only kidding of course.

    I would rather go into the off season trying to resign him and trading Hanigan. Then Mez can learn off Ramon.

    They will never offer arbitration, he would make 7-8 million if they did

    They can offer arbitration. If he accepts they still hold the option to trade him.

    Reds won't get draft picks.

    I wouldn't be shocked NOT to see Devin brought up, no real reason to at this point, let him get a break and then battle for next season.

    Why would the Reds ink Hanigan to a long term deal and then trade him?

    Ramon is so much better than Ryan.

    There would be no reason not to. Minor League seasons come to a close around then and he would get a jump start on next year, which is likely the year the Reds are planning on him being their catcher. The Reds likely planned on trading Ramon, but if I'd have to venture a guess I'd guess the team that placed the claim prevented that from happening. He might not get the chance to be an everyday player yet, but getting his feet wet is only going to help him going into next season. He has nothing left to prove in AAA and won't be playing everyday if not brought up Sept. 1 anyway because the minor league season ends on the 5th. I could see them letting him finish the season, but it would be absolutely pointless not to give him the expierence at the end of the season when they are not playing for a playoff spot rather than waiting to next year when they will be counting on him to be a contributor.

    "Baker then mentioned Devin Mesoraco, the Reds’ top catching prospect at Triple-A Louisville.

    “I know everybody wants to see Mesoraco, including us, but he’s not on the (40-man) roster,” Baker said. “You’d have to clear a spot. It’s always important in the equation but it’s rarely mentioned, who you expose or who you might possibly lose.”
