    This is exactly how the Reds acquired Josh Hamilton a few years back. Someone else drafted him in the Rule 5, and traded him to the Reds.

Senzel had enough time to show he can't play and he is the guy I'd cut loose for even a marginal position player improvement.
    I wasn't forgetting Nick Senzel, whom I'd figure out some way to unload. Jose Barrero OPSed .380 over the last month. Enough said. Interesting thing about this is the way the Giants did it. To set this up, you really have to think the guy can stick on your roster, yet they are loaded with outfielders, especially since the addition of Haniger. Makes you wonder if one of their outfielders is the PTBNL, maybe Luis Gonzalez. He's on the 40 but has an option.

    IIRC , the last time the Reds made a rule 5 pick and traded him, they got Josh VanMeter. Yea, the Reds won that trade, but VanMeter was just easily replaceable chaff.
    I expect the Reds will get someone similar in this trade.

    Sabol has played more catcher than outfield, so they may be looking for him to win the backup catcher job.

    All we're missing is a Phil Castellini pep talk.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    I promise you, the Reds have an answer as why all four positions are “going to be better” this year.

    They’re going to say that C, 1B, and CF are “going to be better” because the starters are going to be “healthy.” SS is “going to be better” because the young starter is “working hard to get better” and “we traded for a ‘quality’ backup” just in case.

    See … nothing to worry about!

    They just signed a decent backup catcher and obviously expect more than 50 games from Stephenson next year. They aren't getting a 1B with Votto still on the roster, but we might see CES sometime next year. We have one of the best SS prospects in baseball who could be ready next year, and they added Newman as a stopgap. Short term will be rough, but the upside coming from the minors is pretty promising.

    CF has been a black hole for the last 5 years so that is the first of those four positions I would upgrade. I suspect we'll see the Reds go with several in house options and converted IF before they spend on a real CF. I would take a good SP over any position player upgrade right now.
