From Leake, Bailey, Arroyo, Cingrani, and Corcino, I'd guess that one or two will be traded this off-season.
Another possibility is Stephenson. Would hate to trade him. Could be necessary in a major deal.
Reds pitching depth is a major attribute. I don't think they have much to trade if they hold onto everyone from the group listed.
Would much rather trade Corcino or Cingrani than Stephenson. Stephenson's timeline works out perfectly within the organization, not to mention his ceiling appears to be significantly higher than any other pitcher the Reds have in the minors. I would only put him in a deal that has someone like Stanton, Myers, or Justin Upton coming back.
Otherwise, use Leake and Corcino or Cingrani as the bait.
