The three moves left for the Cincinnati Reds this offseason

What's left for the Reds this offseason? When Brandon Phillips put the kibosh on a trade that would've sent him to the Washington Nationals back in December, the heavy lifting portion of the massive Cincinnati Reds dismantling effectively ended for the offseason.  Buttressing the 2015 moves of Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, and Marlon Byrd were the winter trades of Todd Frazier and Aroldis Chapman, and with Phillips immovable and Jay Bruce's value too low to reap value, the shuffling of the roster appears to be settled for the near term, at least.

The Reds shouldn’t trade Jay Bruce now

The newcomer makes a huge splash, jumping to #3 on our infallible list. So, Jose Peraza jumped out to an early morning lead for the number three spot in our Community Prospect list, but by mid-afternoon, Cody Reed had jumped out way ahead and, in the end, it wasn't much of a contest. Reed, the unsung acquisition of the Johnny Cueto trade, broke out in a big way in 2015 and is starting to get very serious Top 100 looks from the experts, and it'll be interesting to see if the big left hander will keep up his torrid pace when he, presumably, makes the jump to the International League. Though,...
