    The Dodgers have poured money into various parts of their roster over the past several months, but they’re set to open the 2013 season with Luis Cruz as their starting third baseman and do not have much depth behind him.

    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…

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

    Dec 12, 2012, 8:22 AM EST

    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…

    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.
