Moves Cincinnati Reds Must Try to Pull off at the 2013 MLB Winter Meetings

The Cincinnati Reds have been fairly active so far this offseason, but there are still some moves that the team should try to make at the 2013 MLB Winter Meetings next week.

Cincinnati recently dealt catcher Ryan Hanigan to the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-team trade and received minor league pitcher David Holmberg from the Arizona Diamondbacks. That move was made possible by the team signing catcher Brayan Pena. Infielder Skip Schumaker signed with the club as well.

As FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported, the Reds are unlikely to move second baseman Brandon Phillips.

For a team that has made the playoffs in three of the past four seasons, Cincinnati has been involved in a lot of early moves and rumors.

The team is pretty much set at this point. Center field is about the only position that is uncertain. The rotation and bullpen are stacked. Depending on what the club does with Aroldis Chapman, there could be another move or two made on the staff. General manager Walt Jocketty told MLB Network on Wednesday that Chapman will likely close.

Let's check out some moves that the Reds should try to make at next week's meetings.
