Cincinnati Enquirer / Fay -

CARLOS SILVA? The best fit for the Reds as far as a free agent starter seems to be Carlos Silva, a 28-year-old right-hander.

Silva is 55-46 with a 4.31 ERA in his career - all with Minnesota. He was 13-14 with a 4.19 ERA last season.

He made $4.35 million last year. But given the thinness of the market, he'll probably get a fortune as a free agent.
