I don't expect the Reds to be sellers at all. In fact, I expect them to possibly even add a piece or two. In Harang's case though, they have some very promising young arms that could give you similar production and with those arms, i don't see them picking up Aaron's option for next year.
If there is interest, dealing Harang between now and the deadine, in adddition to getting something in return for him, can free up a few million dollars in salary to use for acquisitions.
I'm not saying give him away or just deal him to deal him. If there aren't any offers of value, I don't have any problem with Aaron remaining in the rotation for the rest of the year. If someone is hurting for another arm come the all-star break, Jocetty might just be able to steal a young talent and add a verteran bullpen arm or bat with the savings.
