2012 Cincinnati Reds Offseason Edinson Volquez returns to the Cincinnati Reds for the 2013 season after a one year hiatus being traded for Mat Latos. He will take the third spot in the rotation following Cueto and Latos then Arroyo and Bailey. This gives the Reds 4 power arms in the rotation while Arroyo will eat innings and throw teams off. Another name that the Reds were after was Justin Upton, a huge bat and would have made his living in left field or right depending if Manager Knight wanted to move Bruce to left. Acquiring Upton would have really bolstered the Cincinnati lineup, but he was untouchable and the Diamondbacks weren't interested in anything the Reds tried to offer.
