Could Reds deal a SS?

The Reds have two young shortstops on their 40-man roster in regular Zack Cozart and September call-up Didi Gregorius. With the market relatively bare of shortstops, especially ones so far from free agency, they could be in demand according to FoxSports.com.

Reds GM Walt Jocketty seemed to indicate to the web site he was open to dealing one of his shortstops.

“It depends if we get back what we need,” Jocketty said. “If we don’t, then I won’t mind holding onto them.”

The Reds need a leadoff hitter and a closer so they could potentially move Aroldis Chapman to the rotation. Oakland has surplus of relievers and an extra leadoff-hitting outfielder in Coco Crisp.

The Twins, D-backs and Rays are also in the market for a shortstop, according to FoxSports.com.
