Ranking the Best Remaining Players the Reds Could Bring in for Spring Training

As we move closer and closer to spring training, the Cincinnati Reds' roster continues to look as though the team is content with a second-straight third-place finish in the NL Central this season.

The team's bench is still weak—the current depth chart has Jack Hannahan, Skip Schumaker, Henry Rodriguez, Neftali Soto and Chris Heisey as backups. Additionally, there are concerns surrounding the lack of depth in the team's starting rotation.

As MLB.com's Mark Sheldon notes, Reds GM Walt Jocketty doesn't expect much in the way of roster moves, but things can change as the offseason nears its final days.

Over the next five slides, we'll look at some players who provide the team with realistic options given their financial situation—players who are likely to earn less than $6 million per year (with one exception). On top of that, we'll rank those five players starting with the worst option, and finishing with the best.

Let's take a look at our first player.
