The Reds have an expected Arbitration cost of $50M this offseason. Of those 8 Arb eligible players I expect them to keep only 3. The wildcard will be Iglesias. What will he command and will the Reds opt to keep him or move on?Right. Unpredictable for sure. But if Trevor wins the NL CY (he should), his price would be very high, relative to all others.
I'm just going to hopefully enjoy a deep playoff run, however long we last, and worry about that over the winter.
With all that, the Reds could afford Bauer if this was a normal year.
