The Reds were awarded 24 year old LH SP Bobby Livingston off waivers after Major League Baseball nullified the Devil Rays claim and immediate trade of him to the Phillies. Livingston was hit pretty hard in AAA last season, and then pounded in the AFL. He’s your prototypical soft tossing, strike throwing lefty. He will be given a chance to compete for the 5th spot in the Red’s rotation, but I believe he will finish far behind Belisle and Ramirez and open the season in Louisville.
