Reds Question of the Week: Whither Yasiel Puig?

Yasiel Puig becomes a free agent at the end of this season. One of the decisions the front office has to make is what do with him. The Reds have a few options. They could try to trade Puig to a team looking for an OF (ahem, Cleveland) or a big RH-bat off the bench. The Reds could try to keep him next year and beyond by negotiating an extension. They could do nothing, planning to make a Qualifying Offer to Puig at the end of the season.

[Qualifying Offer? Short version: Reds offer Puig a 1-year deal for about $18 million.
