Not sure how it works out with guys still in arbitration, but the Reds did just sign him to a 1 year deal. I know there is a rule that a newly signed player cannot be dealt until June 15th without consent from the player. So he in effect has a no trade claus until the 15th and that can be a factor. Yet, and I mentioned, not sure how that rule works out with guys still in arbitration years. So I could be wrong if that rule becomes null with players still in arbitration.
