Sceroler? Coming back when?

It would not surprise me if he's kept down and rehabbed as long as possible and then Wells will come up with something and the same thing will happen while Sceroler will return.

My guess is the plan is to work them onto the 26-man roster for the minimal time they need to keep them and using minor league rehab as a way to get them some innings. 

I know Wells is almost 90 days and we can work the system and keep him. And I know we could use the roster spot. But Wells is becoming one of the bright spots in our pen. Maybe we should keep him here.

 

But this year doesn't matter so... whatever. As long as we keep him.

And yes, Sceroler hasn't shown us anything yet. The SLIGHTEST hints.

 

But I'm a firm believer in GENES in the majors. If your previous relatives had success it's likely you will too. It happens over and over.

It’s also happened over and over that genes mean nothing.

He isn’t good.  He hasn’t ever been good.  Cut bait and give Hyde another arm that maybe has a chance.

Here’s the thing with Rule 5 picks, even if you manage to “hides them all year, they are still on your 40 man over the offseason. So then that is one of your own players you cannot protect from the rule 5 draft. Aka Pop and Fenter, even though we got Fenter back.

True, I never looked at it that way.

But ME cleared up 2 spots on the 40 heading into the Rule V draft, took Wells and Sceroler to fill it. If he was ok then to risk Pop or Fenter to be lost, then that was his decision.

And now, I guess it his (And Sig and his department's) decision whether he really wants to keep Sceroler. (Wells is a lock.)

I think the only way they will put Wells on the IL is if he really does tweak something or they are worried about his innings, but it doesn't appear his innings load will be that bad for a starting pitcher.

Sure it happens a lot and good genes probably give an advantage, but think of all the MLB players who have kids/nephews that don't become professional baseball players, let alone successful ones. If the guy stinks, cut him loose.

Sceroler is useful for throwing to the wolves in blowouts and protecting your actual prospects/quality bullpen arms from absorbing those innings/pitches thrown. I think we keep him as long as he's healthy and then towards the end of the season he'll be DFA'd and probably able to pass through waivers at that point.

If they DFA Sceroler anytime this year he will have to goes through waivers and bevoffered back to the Reds.

Yep, he hasn't hurt us or cost us a game this year.   At worst he's taken a roster spot that some slightly less bad reliever might have taken.   But we can't DFA him until after the season if we want to keep him.

The decision to keep him or not will be based in entirely on how he projects in the minds of Elias and company, not how he pitches now.
