Reds add Schoeneweis to help 'pen

Left-hander acquired from Jays for player to be named or cash

The Reds acquired more bullpen help on Wednesday by acquiring lefty Scott Schoeneweis from the Blue Jays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

 

Schoeneweis was 2-2 with a 6.51 ERA and one save in 55 relief appearances for Toronto this season. The 32-year-old is expected to arrive in time for Wednesday night's game at St. Louis.

 

An eight-year veteran, Schoeneweis has appeared in 358 games with the Angels, White Sox and Blue Jays and has a 5.09 career ERA.

 

To make room on the 40-man roster, lefty reliever Kent Mercker was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. A replacement for Mercker was needed when the veteran suffered a completely torn ligament in his elbow.

 

A corresponding 25-man roster move will be announced after Schoeneweis joins the Reds. A likely odd man out could be Brian Shackelford, who was recalled from Triple-A Louisville after Mercker went to the DL.

Well from that article:

 

Since July 6, Schoeneweis is the seventh reliever that Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky has acquired through a trade. Eddie Guardado, Bill Bray, Gary Majewski, Rheal Cormier, Kyle Lohse and Ryan Franklin have all been dealt for in an effort to revamp Cincinnati's bullpen. Lohse has since moved into the rotation.

Is franklin not enough to eat up innings in a meaningless game? I don't get this move, the guy has an era flirting with 6.50!
