I read on MLBTR that the Yankees and Marlins might not be as interested in Cesedes as originally thought. I also read that the Tigers were heavy into him. What do you think about trading for Delmon Young or Nick Swisher if one of those two teams sign Cespedes?

I like Swisher former Buckeye let's bring him back home and let him play left and hit clean up.

Swisher, a tentative maybe. Young, no.

Delmon Young struggles to keep his OBP above .300 and doesn't make up for it with good defense (-49.6 career UZR) or good baserunning (-.9 career Ultimate Base Running, per Fangraphs).

Swisher is obviously a much better offensive player, and plays decent defense as well, but I'm not sure the Reds are in a position to make another trade after emptying much of the top of the minor league system. Overall, I'd say it makes more sense to address LF via a relatively cheap free agent, such as CoCo Crisp, or through an in house option like Heisey.
