A report from AOL Fanhouse says the Reds are looking to sell veterans and cite a source that the team is “close to doing something.”
Veteran pitchers Bronson Arroyo, Aaron Harang, David Weathers, Arthur Rhodes and Francisco Cordero were mentioned as possible chips to deal. Arroyo, according to SI.com, has interest from the Yankees if they can’t work something out for Roy Halladay.
The Dodgers would also be interested in Arroyo or Harang if they can’t land Cliff Lee, according to the AOL story.
Selling rumors about the Reds are not shocking, especially after they just concluded a 0-6 road trip through L.A. and Chicago. They are 44-53, a season-high nine games below .500 entering Monday’s game vs. the Padres.
