The Dayton club has 34 errors at the 3B and SS positions through one-third of the season.
Reds just signed a free agent third baseman for Bakersfield, Niko Vasquez, former third round pick of the Cardinals who never panned out.
Richie Shaffer would be a great candidate for that.
If they don't take him (or another college 3B in the first few rounds), I wonder how far Gabriel Rosa is from being ready for Dayton? As a second round pick last year who signed early enough to get over 100 AB in Rookie League, it's certainly not out of the question.
