Kevin Towers opted not to remain with the Diamondbacks in a different role after being fired as general manager and now Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that he’s set to join the Reds’ front office as an assistant to general manager Walt Jocketty.

Towers took a lot of criticism for his stint in Arizona–and rightfully so in most cases–but he’s always been portrayed as very well-respected across baseball and it’s no surprise that another longtime, veteran GM wanted to bring him on board.
