It’s probably going to be impossible for the Reds to move Aroldis Chapman at any point in the near future given the October domestic-assault incident that came to light on Monday night as the Dodgers were closing in on a blockbuster trade for the fireballing closer.

But the rebuild must go on — and will go on — this winter Cincinnati …

Frazier posted an .806 OPS with 35 home runs and 89 RBI in 157 games this past season for the Reds, earning his second straight National League All-Star nod. The 29-year-old third baseman is due just $7.5 million in 2016 and will have one more year of arbitration-eligibility in 2017 before he can hit free agency.

He’d make sense for any team with a hole at the hot corner.
