We learned on Saturday that Reds first baseman Joey Votto isn’t willing to waive his no-trade clause. Aside from him, the Reds are willing to trade anyone on their roster, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
The Reds and Dodgers are reportedly in serious trade talks involving closer Aroldis Chapman, but the Reds would even be willing to move All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier as well. Heyman notes that the Diamondbacks had interest in second baseman Brandon Phillips at one point, but the two clubs haven’t discussed a trade in recent times.
Outfielder Jay Bruce is another candidate to be traded, with the Orioles having shown interest last month. Bruce has a limited no-trade clause and can block trades to the Yankees, Red Sox, Athletics, Rays, Marlins, Twins, Indians, and Diamondbacks.
