    Krall In Trade Talks About Multiple Players

    Krall In Trade Talks About Multiple Players

    As the Cincinnati Reds try to figure out what to do with their surplus of infielders, general manager Nick Krall is already engaged in the trade market.

    Speaking to reporters during the general managers meetings, Krall said he's talked with "a handful" of teams about "multiple players" on the roster.

    Krall's comments came after MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported on Wednesday that second baseman Jonathan India was a "popular name" among executives, but the Reds have a high opinion of the 26-year-old and "aren't motivated to move him."

    The Reds had 17 players with at least 120 plate appearances last season. From that group, nine played the infield or designated hitter. They did clear out two spots with Kevin Newman being a free agent and declining Joey Votto's $20 million option for 2024.

    This still leaves Cincinnati with seven players for the four infield spots and one DH slot in the lineup. India, Spencer Steer, Elly De La Cruz, Christian Encarnacion-Strand and Matt McClain would seem like the favorites for those spots if they are on the roster.

    Nick Senzel and Noelvi Marte are potential wild cards in the mix. Senzel is the oldest player of the group at 28 years old. He's struggled to make an impact as a big leaguer with a .239/.302/.369 slash line in 377 career games.

    The Reds could try to move Senzel, but he likely wouldn't bring much back in a potential trade.

    Marte is interesting because he played well with a .316/.366/.456 slash line in 123 plate appearances after being called up in August.

    Given Marte's status as a top-25 prospect, there's no reason for the Reds not to start next season with him as their starting third baseman.

    India has struggled to replicate his success since being named NL Rookie of the Year in 2021.

    Since that time, India has a .246/.333/.394 slash line with 27 homers and 17 stolen bases in 222 games. He's been worth 1.7 FanGraphs wins above replacement during that span.

    I believe Noelvi Marte has a chance to be the best all around hitter of all the Reds young players.

    i watched India in person when he was in the minors when Chattanooga came to Pensacola for a series, before his Rookie of the Year season, and Marte is way above him in my opinion.

    I kinda figured the FO would be hesitant in trading India. Might be for the best though because the return on Marte and/or McLain is probably better

    Are you advocating the Reds trade McLain, Marte, or both?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    No no no no nooooooo. I just think the Reds see India as a face of the franchise type for reasons other than on field performance so are hesitant to deal him, and I think that in hypothetical trades involving all 3, India brings the least quality back of the 3.

    If India brings back a solid pitcher or two, it will help.

    I have no faith in the Reds being real players in this free-agent market. There are too many teams with similar needs who have owners willing to spend.

    Trade for pitching a sign a couple of guys to round out the offense, that's probably all we can hope for this winter.

    Did Krall say he was in trade talks or that he would like to be in trade talks? Sometimes he says what would be cool to do but he doesn’t actually do it.

    Depends on the return, as with all players.

    Trading Marte and McLain would be really stupid. Trade India and prospects like Arroyo, Richardson, etc but not Marte and McLain.

    I think Krall is dumb, but I don’t think he’s stupid
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Everyone should be available for the right price.

    Matt McLain just had a rookie season at age 23 in which he put up a 7.0 bWAR pace.

    Marte had a 4.0 bWAR pace at age 21.

    So that’s the price.

    We’d need to be taking about a Eury Perez or George Kirby type of player to move one of those guys.

    Gee, two years ago India was Rookie of the Year and untouchable. Guys are untouchable when doing well but that doesn’t tell us the future.

    I have never said India is untouchable. I have probably been his biggest critic on this website since he was drafted

    Agreed. If itís for a pitcher, I say no. Most pitchers are a high risk because of injuries. Now if itís India or a prospect, thatís a whole different story.
