The Cincinnati Reds have struggled in 2014, and these are the five players first-year manager Bryan Price could do without for the rest of the season if the team has any hope of vying for the NL Central division title.
Ramon Santiago is a slick fielder capable of playing all infield positions except for first base, but he offers so little at the plate that the sooner he leaves the better for a team that struggles to score runs.
Roger Bernadina is an outstanding athlete with merit defensively, but keeping him on the roster does the Reds absolutely no good, especially when his presence is at the expense of playing time for a prospect like a Donald Lutz.
Right-handed relief pitcher Logan Ondrusek has shown promise in years past as a power arm out of the bullpen, but his failure to fully reach his potential makes him a prime candidate for trade and most definitely a player the Reds could do without for this year and the future.
Lefty Sean Marshall was a dominant setup man out of the pen when he was first traded to the Reds, but chronic shoulder problems have most definitely made Marshall as expendable as they come.
Ryan Ludwick rejuvenated his career with the Cincinnati Reds in 2012, but after missing most of last year with a shoulder injury and failing to win the left field job this year, Ludwick is the one Reds player the team could do without more than any other -- especially if they can somehow find a trade partner to take him off their hands.
