When they signed Aroldis Chapman out of Cuba a few yrs ago,he was a starter. Starters are at such a premium, and the Reds brass has indicated they want to move him back, from closer. I don't know his exact contract details but he's not getting current starter 'market value' right now.

They think they are ready to get to a WS. I think they'd be a team to consider.


They signed Jonathan Broxton to close.

If his arm falls off, which is certainly possible, I imagine they'd just move Chapman back. Sean Marshall could close, but that leaves them without a lefty in the pen.

Had they not signed Broxton, they might be in the Perez market, but I think they're content with him and what they have.
