If the Reds acquire either Shields or Jimenez, the rotation could be....

Shields
Cueto
Leake
Bailey
Willis?

Would you trade Bronson to unload his contract?

We're already saving on Cordero ($12M) and Hernandez ($3M), Gomes ($2M), and Renteria ($2M) at the end of the season. That's $19M + probably some others saved. We could save around $30M if Arroyo is dealt. But then you add Shields and there are pay raises for others.

I could be wrong but I dont think his contract is very trade friendly for us.


But if possible Id trade him whether we trade for another guy or not. Hes not worth 5 mil a year let alone 12 or whatever we are paying.

According to Cot's, if we trade Arroyo, we owe him the $15MM deferred right up front. In other words, he's not going anywhere...
