2018 is quite a ways away. If Cingrani is still doing well in 2018, I suspect the Reds could have money to pay him as some of the guys making larger salaries will be done or elsewhere by then. Arroyo for one probably won't be with the Reds. I suspect a couple of other starters will be gone too. Just the law of averages. Players get hurt, others underperform, and some just get replaced by talent coming up through the system. Unlike past regimes, I feel confident the current one can sufficiently manage the roster and salaries to keep the players worth keeping and replace the ones that are not.
