Re: Some Tough Bullpen Decisions Loom.
Key moment is July 31. Reds will straddle several of these guys between Cincy and Louisville, until then.
At July 31, Reds should try to trade Stanton and Weathers to make room for young relievers. Possible Santos and Maj could be moved too. At that point, things will open up.
Unless, by some miracle, the Reds are really in the Central hunt, in which case the veteran types will probably stick around for awhile.
I think there will be a market for some of these relievers at the deadline, although wouldn't expect too much in return and may have to contribute to two-year contract payoff.
