Re: Buster Olney says Reds looking for outfield help!!
The three unsettled positions for the Reds are 3b, ss, lf.
I agree that LF is not the optimal place to add a bat via trade. The Reds have some good righty/lefty platoon guys there now. Also -- as Reds hitting prospects come up, LF is a perfect place to put them if they don't have a natural or vacant position. Like a Frazier, or Dorn, or Francisco, or Soto, or Heisey, depending on who "graduates" from AAA eventually. Or Votto if Alonso is the one who "graduates." Or Stubbs if CF is occupied by WT. Also keep in mind that if the infield is healthy, LF may be the spot for Hairston if he continues to hit.
I would much rather see the new bat play 3B or SS.
