Despite losses such as Bronson Arroyo and Shin-Soo Choo, Cincinnati, for a large part, stayed the course in the offseason, deciding not to bring in a wealth of high-priced talent.
MLB Analyst Gabe Zaldivar breaks down the chances of the Reds as they head into the 2014 season—one that will begin with a wealth of questions.
The Reds will hope that youth will be the answer they need both in center field and in the starting rotation.
Billy Hamilton will have the full-time gig in center field, hoping to prove he is far more than a lightning-quick asset on the basepaths.
Tony Cingrani will attempt to fill a sizable hole left by Arroyo. But the biggest issue facing the club is the huge void left after a horrible injury sustained by Aroldis Chapman, something Fox Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi believes can be helped via the trade market.
It is here that we begin a great debate that will only be fully answered 162 games at a time. Go ahead and offer your assessment below.
