Reds Designate Enerio Del Rosario For Assignment

The Reds designated Enerio Del Rosario for assignment to make room for newly-acquired utility man Willie Bloomquist, according to MLB.com's Mark Sheldon (on Twitter). Del Rosario, 24, pitched 8.2 innings for the Reds this year, striking out three, but allowing 13 hits and four walks.

The Reds signed Del Rosario as an amateur free agent in 2005 and saw him develop into a Florida State League All-Star in 2009. He posted a 3.09 ERA in 64 innings at Triple A this year with 4.8 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9.

The Reds are chock full of pitching. Rosario doesn’t have a chance on making the team next year. He performed decent while up, but just not needed.

Makes perfect sense.

Agreed this guy was not going to make the major league team any time soon unless the pitchers all get trashed by injuries. Not a perfect move but not a bad decision either.

There are still two outfield bats injured: Nix and Edmonds who are the backups for the team. Who qualifies as a backup until the end of the year? Chris Heisey and Miguel Cairo? Heisey is worn out and hurt, and really all you have left is Cairo. That was the point in the deal. Bruce never blipped off the radar, as he never went on the DL. The idea was based on WHO exactly is there to backup and give these 3 outfielders a rest until the end of the year. The Reds didn’t have a viable backup, and Bloomquist gives them that regardless of his time spent on the team.

Nix, Heisey, and Edmonds then have the time and ability to fully recover before the postseason.

It makes total sense. The Reds have numerous emergency replacements in Triple-A for next year if they don’t make the team out of Spring Training — Maloney, Burton, Herrera, Jukich, Lehr, and Reineke just to name a few. Plus, anyone that impresses from Double-A or below.

2 problems with your post here mate. Heisey is not at full health and seems a bit worn out lately statistically speaking. Bruce could be injured again any day, mind you anyone else too. Does not really hurt doing this. Del Rosario was really far down the depth chart for pitching.

I do kinda wonder why they did not give Alonso a shot though since I know he was playing OF some in the minors????? Who knows its Dusty. Probably forgot he was on the expanded roster.

I also agree that you can’t have enough pitching but I am sure someone in AA will be stepping up soon too.
