Not so fast, Loshe was rarely starting anyway and the Twins have had success letting their stud prospects develop in the bullpen.
True, but Gardenhire has been hinting about Garza for a while now, so the chances aren't zero that we see him sometime this month. Maybe they would bring him up as a reliever to limit his workload, but I think they want to hold off on bringing him up if they can. It may depend on how Silva and Baker pitch down the stretch and whether or not the Twins acquire another starter via trade and probably won't be a result of this trade.
Rheal Cormier was also part of the deal to the Reds and he is a decent situational reliever. It may be possible he will be the better pickup between him and Lohse. Lohse has been pretty good in July as a reliever. I wouldn't be anywhere near as confident about him as a starter though.
