Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd, 2B Skip Schumaker, C Brayan Pena and RP Manny Parra are all potential trade candidates who could likely clear waivers, but Cincinnati has not received any trade interest on them, accordingly to general manager Walt Jocketty.
Fantasy Tip: There is still potential a deal could be made before the deadline for players to be eligible for the post season Monday, Aug. 31, but outside Byrd ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), the other three are essentially fantasy afterthoughts outside cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, because of a hip injury. The team also activated RP Manny Parra (neck, elbow) from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been limited to pinch hit and designated hitter duties over the last several weeks because of the injury. It is not known when he will be able to catch again. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should continue to be the starting catcher for the Reds and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds RPs J.J. Hoover, Logan Ondrusek, Manny Parra and Sam LeCure are all closing possibilities until RP Jonathan Broxton (forearm) returns from the disabled list next week. Manager Bryan Price seems to indicate that Broxton is the favorite to close when he returns. "I'm not to the point where I'm going to designate a guy. We anticipate Broxton being back relatively quickly. We know all of those pitchers I mentioned have a history in this league. If we can match them up as best as possible until we're able to get a guy like Broxton, who's been a closer, back. He'll be the guy who holds down the fort until Aroldis Chapman comes back," Price said.
Fantasy Tip: It's pretty clear that Broxton is the favorite for the primary closing duties when he's healthy, leaving the other options as setup men based on matchups. Grab Broxton now if you are in need of more saves options.
