The Reds selected RHP Sergio Valenzuela from the Braves with the sixth pick in the first round of the Rule-5 draft.
After being picked in the Rule-5 draft Valenzuela, 23, must remain on the Reds' 25-man roster all season or be offered back to the Braves for cash. The Reds might take a look at him as a potential No. 5 starter, but he would be very high risk for the deepest of NL-only leagues. It is more likely he sticks around in the bullpen, but then he is nothing more than a low-end middle reliever for the deepest of NL-only leagues that use true middle men.
