Reds options include Pence
By Jason A. Churchill
The Cincinnati Reds are looking for a right-handed bat and have checked in on Hunter Pence of the San Francisco Giants, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman via Twitter. Pence may not end up a fit, Heyman adds, presumably due to the asking price.
Beyond Pence, the Reds could have interest in the likes of Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios. Ryan Ludwick, however, is currently rehabbing and could return in August, suggesting the Reds aren't certain to acquire an outfielder.
If the Brewers make Aramis Ramirez available, the Reds could have interest. In that scenario, Todd Frazier, who has been playing third base, likely plays the outfield.
