The Cincinnati Reds have had few occasions to celebrate in 2014, but these five players to target by the trade deadline could help the team make a run for a Wild Card berth this year and much more in 2015.
The Cincinnati Reds could use an up-and-coming, right-handed power hitter when rosters expand in September, and Colorado Rockies' farmhand Kyle Parker would be ideal for that, as well as a potential cleanup hitter in the future.
A left-handed hitting corner infielder with robust minor-league power production could be a big boost for the Cincinnati Reds not only in 2014 but also the next few years. The Reds would be wise to pry Ryan Wheeler from the Colorado Rockies.
With two years of arbitration eligibility left, it will be costly for any team to pry lefty reliever Mike Dunn from the Miami Marlins, regardless of whether they prove to be buyers or sellers. But the Cincinnati Reds need an upgrade over lefties Manny Parra and Sean Marshall both now and for the next couple of years.
Adding this Cuban Missile would give the Cincinnati Reds a better bat than current shortstop Zack Cozart without sacrificing too much defensively -- for now and both 2015 and 2016, in which Ramirez is under club control for $ 10 million each season.
With a club option for 2015 that's under $ 8 million, the Cincinnati Reds may be able to lure Ben Zobrist from the Tampa Bay Rays with a deal that would put him to work right away this year and give the Reds their best shot at reaching the 2014 and 2015 postseason.
