    They have Bruce wrapped up through 2017. What to do with Latos/Bailey/Cueto should be their focus now. 2018 is a long way away.

    The complete other side of that coin though, is that an extension like Bruce's agent approached the Reds about, would guarantee 2017-2023 or so, and would not interfere with the contract years of 2014-2017 of one of the pitchers.

    Holding off on Bruce only risks the Reds not being able to afford him beyond his current contract. Which, I get would be the plan for some fans. The extension he asked about was later set by Longoria a few weeks later. Now the market keeps rising with each new deal, and while Bruce has indicated a willingness to take a discount to stay in Cincinnati, his market is still set by his peers.

    The difference in 6/90-100, and 6/120+, is likely significant no matter the Reds next TV contract.

    The team may be hoping that Hamilton pans out in CF, and can be flanked by Ervin/Winker/Yorman by 2016 though. That would explain their desire to postpone an extension.

    Otherwise, putting off Bruce for fear of not being able to have one of the pitchers doesn't make sense, as the last couple of years of a deal for one the pitchers would be all that overlapped with an extension to Bruce, and that could be handled with deferrals or backloading.

    One potential hangup in the Stephen Drew market could be the fact that Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz will be cleared to sign in two weeks. The 23-year-old was declared ineligible to sign after falsifying his age last year (Diaz claimed to be 23 then, in order to be eligible for MLB one year early). Morosi reminds that MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez listed (MLBTR link) the Red Sox and Yankees as two of eight clubs to have shown interest in Diaz back in December, and both have been linked to Drew.

    The Astros have designated Brett Wallace for assignment to make roster space for newly signed pitcher Jerome Williams, the club announced via press release. Once the game's 27th overall prospect, Wallace never found sustained success in Houston.

    The Marlins have agreed to a one-year, $1.25MM deal with reliever Carlos Marmol, reports Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com (Spanish language link). The 31-year-old former Cubs closer is a client of Kinzer Management Group.

    The Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with Mark Trumbo, settling on a one-year, $4.8MM deal, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports via Twitter. Trumbo's salary lands just north of the $4.7MM he was projected to earn by MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz.

    The Mariners have agreed to a two-year, $14MM deal with reliever Fernando Rodney, reports Jonah Keri of Grantland (via Twitter). Rodney, a client of MVP Sports Group, could earn up to $15MM if he meets the deal's incentives.

    I'd take a shot on Wallace over Hannahan.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    on the contrary. I'll take that power in a pinch to counter Schumaker's more steady craftsmanship coming off the bench. Another ex cardinal also, good organization. 3 swings to put one in the seats, jog around and try Billy Hamilton's patience.

    Hannahan is signed for 2014. The Reds have an option for 2015 and if they pass Hannahan gets a buyout. It appears to be a $2 million buyout, obviously agreed to in lieu of more salary during his two year contract.

    The Reds are not trading or cutting Hannahan. And after last season, no other team is taking on the buyout obligation.

    Despite all the RedsZone posts to the contrary, Hannahan is going no place.

    Walt should be kicked to the curb for that deal alone (K, that one and Broxton's) and if there weren't a Bavasi skulking around I'd be calling for just that.

    Hannahan is one of the better bench players in MLB right now. He had a crappy year at the plate, but he's an elite fielder at 3B who can fill in at SS in a pinch.

    The Reds needed someone to back up Frazier, and spell him on defense. Much to everyone's surprise, Frazier was outstanding in the field last year, and didn't need to be replaced for defense, so Hannahan didn't have much of a role.

    But it was a smart signing, even if it didn't work out last year.

    Walt's only under contract through 2014. These 2 year deals might create a problem for his successor, if he doesn't come back in 2015.

    Arroyo lowers asking price: 2 years, $22 mil

    According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Bronson Arroyo is no longer demanding a three-year deal.
    The veteran right-hander is now seeking something closer to two years at $22 million. The Diamondbacks, Dodgers and Orioles are believed to be the primary contenders for Arroyo, who posted a 3.79 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 32 starts last season for the Reds and has been the most durable pitcher in baseball over the past nine years. He should be signing a contract soon.
