Nicasio was one of his better moves, a sneaky post-waiver pick-up that he flipped for something else. It's still not clear to me whether bringing him back in the Segura deal meant they liked him or they simply had to take his salary.
He also brought back Neshek. And now Hunter though he didn't play for another team in the meantime.
I would not say a willingness to bring back players is an asset for most GMs. Certainly not Phillies GMs!
