Who is Ben Jukich? And, where is he returning from? Two great questions that I will answer right now.
Jukich was selected by the Cardinals with the 20th pick in December’s Rule 5 Draft. The Cardinals were rumored to have engaged the Reds in a potential trade for the left-hander, however, it appears they were unable to reach an agreement. Jukich, 27, was 9-6 with a 4.10 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 29 games (17 starts) with Triple-A Louisville last season.
I feel like the Reds shouldn’t do to much trading with their Central foes. Especially the Cardinals. Unless, they may part with the 1b Albert Pujols, lol.
