Re: Reds outfield -- 2010
The Reds' 2010 payroll is pretty much as high as it can get, so I don't see the Reds offering arbitration to Nix or Gomes to keep them around unless a corresponding move is made.
Here's what I see:
In the event of an injury, the following players come up from AAA:
Juan Francisco? (I really don't think he has a future at 3B)
Drew Sutton or Todd Frazier could be sent out there, too.
