It's well established that the Reds need middle relief help. They are about to dip down to Louisville and bring Aroldis Chapman up as a last gasp hope. Still, they will need more.
Most of those guys pictured are relievers.
From the A's we see Craig Breslow and Brad Ziegler.
Those Mariners are Brandon League and David Aardsma.
The Royals offer up Kyle Farnsworth, Joakim Soria (pipe dream), and Zack Greinke (hookah dream).
Chris Perez and Kerry Wood represent the Tribe guys.
Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie and reliever Will Ohman both come from the Baltimore Orioles.
From the Diamondback we have Aaron Heilman and Brandon Webb.
The lone Fish is Brian Sanches.
Of those 14 players, we have 11 relievers and three starters (Greinke, Guthrie, and Webb).
The teams represented are no doubt "sellers" while, believe it or not, the Reds are buyers.
It's a shame that at least two NL Central teams are out of the race.
Since they share divisions and play each other about 14 times per season it would be unbearable to watch someone your team let get away come back and bite you in the heiney.
So let's take a gander at some of the young men the Reds may part ways with in an attempt to strengthen their pen or improve the starting staff.
