According to the Rocky Mountain News, the Rockies are still shopping Willy Taveras and believe the Reds are a possible suitor. The Corey Patterson signing did not pay off for the Reds, so bringing in Taveras will give them a solid bat at the top of the order with speed. Taveras hit .251 with 1 HR in 133 games, but stole 68 bases for the Rockies and scored 64 runs. The Rockies would really like to create more opportunities for Ryan Spilborghs, and trading Taveras will clear the way in center.
It may cost the Reds a minor leaguer or two.
