Hattie or JV may be a wash as far as return right now, I just can't see a team giving up any real talent, even low level, for Hattie or his type. He has no power, is just average defensively, and is old. The only thing that makes him valuable to the Reds is what I have read, that he is a great clubhouse leader.
JV has power, is building a reputation for coming up in the clutch from the left side and late, and can play outfield, first and catcher. I can see this being pitched well to a contender.
