    Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents.

    The Indians got center fielder Drew Stubbs from the Reds (and Trevor Bauer from the Diamondbacks) in last week’s three-team, nine-player trade. Now they’re looking to acquire a new right fielder. Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that free agent Nick Swisher is scheduled to visit Indians officials at Progressive Field on Tuesday or Wednesday of…

  3. Scott Rolen has approached the Reds about coming back

    Dec 12, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Last week Scott Rolen’s agent said his client needed more time to decide if he wants to come back. He’s apparently decided. From Danny Knobler: Rolen has now suggested to the Reds that he might want to go to spring training and give it another try, according to sources, and the Reds would be more…

  4. Reds sign Jack Hannahan to one-year, $2 million deal

    Dec 12, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Jack Hannahan

    Jack Hannahan has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Reds, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Hannahan drew a surprising amount of interest considering he’s a 32-year-old career .234 hitter who’s stretched as a traditional utility infielder because he’s barely played any shortstop, but teams apparently loved his defense at third base…

  5. Jay Bruce or Shin-Soo Choo in center for the Reds?

    Dec 12, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    I like the big Reds-Indians-Diamondbacks trade from the Reds’ perspective. That lineup is gonna be stacked now and they have to be everyone’s favorite in the NL Central. One of the points of concern, however, is what the Reds would do with their outfield defense. The team doesn’t have a natural center fielder now and…

  6. How the Diamondbacks went from Trevor Bauer to Didi Gregorius

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    The Diamondbacks and GM Kevin Towers knew all about Trevor Bauer‘s odd delivery and unusual throwing program when they made him the third overall pick in the 2011 draft. If they had questions about him then, they overlooked them in order to get one of the top talents on the board. Now, a year and…

    Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reported earlier that the Reds were trying to acquire outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from the Indians, with Drew Stubbs and infield prospect Didi Gregorius heading to Cleveland in return.

  9. Reds “deep in talks” to acquire Shin-Soo Choo from Indians

    choo ap

    Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that the Reds are “deep in talks” to acquire outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from the Indians. According to Knobler the deal would send current Cincinnati center fielder Drew Stubbs and infield prospect Didi Gregorius to Cleveland. All offseason the Reds have been linked to various center fielders as they looked to…

  11. Johnny Cueto cleared to begin throwing

    Dec 7, 2012, 9:43 PM EDT

    Cueto Getty

    The last time we saw Johnny Cueto in action, he was walking off the mound in the first inning of Game 1 of the NLDS against the Giants due to an oblique injury. It’s fair to wonder how the postseason would have played out had he been healthy, but the good news for Reds fans…

  12. Joey Votto’s surgically-repaired knee isn’t 100 percent yet

    Dec 7, 2012, 7:06 PM EDT

    Division Series - San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Five

    Joey Votto required two procedures on his left knee this summer and wasn’t much of a power threat upon his return, going homerless in 25 regular season games and five postseason contests. During an appearance at the annual Redsfest today, Votto told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that while he’s making progress, his knee still isn’t…

  13. Ryan Ludwick still weighing Reds’ offer

    Dec 6, 2012, 2:13 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick

    Sources tell the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay and FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal that Ryan Ludwick is still considering whether to take the Reds’ offer or sign for a bit more money elsewhere. The Mets are one of the teams considering Ludwick, while the Reds are believed to be offering him a two-year deal worth $6 million-$7…

  14. Jason Grilli set to re-sign with the Pirates

    Dec 6, 2012, 12:43 PM EDT

    Jason Grilli

    UPDATE: Our own Craig Calcaterra reports that Grilli is re-signing with the Pirates, citing a source with knowledge of the situation. ========== Jason Grilli‘s breakout season as a setup man in Pittsburgh made him a very popular free agent target and agent Gary Sheffield (yes, that Gary Sheffield) has said the right-hander is close to…

  15. Angels’ rebuilt bullpen adds left-hander Sean Burnett on two-year, $8 million contract

    Dec 5, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    They still need plenty of rotation help, but the Angels have added another late-inning option to their bullpen. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that they’ve signed left-hander Sean Burnett to a two-year deal with an option for 2015. Burnett joins Ryan Madson in a new-look bullpen after spending the past three-and-a-half seasons in Washington, where…

  16. Scott Rolen still not sure if he’ll retire or play an 18th season

    Dec 5, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Every few weeks someone checks in with Scott Rolen to see if he plans to play in 2013 or retire after 17 seasons in the majors, and the 37-year-old third baseman still isn’t sure. His agent told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer that Rolen needs more time to make a decision. Fay speculates that…

  17. The Reds are interested in doing long term deals for Homer Bailey and Mat Latos

    Dec 5, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Last season the Reds did long term deals for Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. Now they’re thinking about locking up some pitching: they want to do long-term deals for Homer Bailey and Mat Latos, reports John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Bailey and Latos look to be long-term parts of the Reds rotation, with each…

It’s likely for two years and a little under $20 million. Ludwick batted .275/.346/.531 with 26 home runs and 80 RBI in 125 games this past season for the…

    Dec 4, 2012, 7:15 PM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Finally out from under Travis Hafner‘s deal, the Indians tried going big for once, offering free agent Shane Victorino a four-year, $44 million deal, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Victorino instead signed a three-year, $39 million contract with the Red Sox, netting him an extra $2 million annually. The $44 million would have been the…

  20. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  21. Mets show interest in Ryan Ludwick

    Dec 3, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick

    It’s about time that somebody did. Cody Ross is getting all kinds of hits — the latest coming from the Yankees — after batting .267/.326/.481 with 22 homers and 81 RBI in 476 at-bats for the Red Sox last season. The market for Ryan Ludwick, on the other hand, has been very quiet, even though…

    Dec 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto continues to search for bullpen help after missing out on Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa. Fujikawa chose the Cubs, perhaps in part because he wanted a chance to be a closer and the Angels had just signed Ryan Madson to more or less fill that role. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com says…

  24. The Dodgers aren’t looking at Brian Wilson

    Dec 2, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    Brian Wilson

    Well, this is a first. The free-spending Dodgers have no plans to make a run at non-tendered closer Brian Wilson, sources told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. Wilson was said to be quite interested in pitching in SoCal with the Dodgers or Angels, but both teams have already signed closers this winter. The…

  25. Reds interested in Dexter Fowler to fill leadoff spot

    Dec 2, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Dexter Fowler

    The Reds aren’t willing to spend for Michael Bourn or Angel Pagan to upgrade from Drew Stubbs in center fielder, but there is a cheaper alternative available in trade: Colorado’s Dexter Fowler. FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi reports that the Reds are interested in Fowler, while the Rockies happen to like Reds starter Homer Bailey. There’s no…
