ĽA source says Cespedes' eventual contract will be in the range of four years and $32MM, writes MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. "Several teams have backed away" from Cespedes' original goal of an eight-year, $60MM contract.
He has the most upside of any player available at a position of need. Madson at closer would also improve the team. Agent Boras is frustrated with the closer market for Madson and said he would wait til sping training to get a contract for Madson (1 Year -10mil. ?)
How much payroll can the Reds add ?
Cepedes is best friends with Aroldis Chapman and will be available for free agency on Jan. 15th.
Is this the Reds next BIG Move?
