Raisel Iglesias, who anchored the bullpen and was the team’s most reliable pitcher whether starting or in relief. He also has a long, inexpensive contract that would attract other teams for a trade. But the Reds would also be giving up their closer.
Adam Duvall, the left fielder and All-Star, has been far and away the best of the hoard of players they’ve traded for when the team started its rebuild. Coming from San Francisco in exchange for Mike Leake, he went from Triple-A to the outfield and has hit 30 home runs the last two years and was a Gold Glove finalist the last two. But waiting is Jesse Winker, a top prospect with a Votto-like approach to the plate.
Scott Schebler, the left fielder is a mirror of Duvall. He hit 30 home runs last year, but is also in a position that could be filled by Winker if the team makes a trade.
Billy Hamilton is considered valuable by the Reds because of his all-universe glove and defense in center field, which eats up territory others on the corners would have to fit. But he’s struggled to hit since being called up.
