I don't see the reds investing resources in Rolen when Frazier is ready to play for the league minimum. If Rolen wants to travel with the team and pick up 3-4 starts a week near the league minimum I would sign him.
Otherwise, "Hey, thanks for the memories and if you ever want to coach or stuff like that keep us in mind."
Hopefully Frazier will get to DH in the World Series.
