The Reds have been searching for a veteran starting pitcher and got one in Tanner Roark from the Nationals in exchange for reliever Tanner Rainey, the never-before-seen Tanner-for-Tanner trade. Roark has pitched 180 innings each of the past three seasons and gave the Nationals some reliable innings, but now they have two big holes at the back of the rotation.
