2. The Dodgers could trade for Reds pitcher Sonny Gray.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have already been rumored to be after Sonny Gray, so there's no reason to think that LA wouldn't be in the running to land the right-hander in a trade.

The Reds and Dodgers have done business in the past, most recently the 2018 trade involving Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood, Matt Kemp, and Kyle Farmer.

In return, the Dodgers received Homer Bailey and two of Cincinnati's top prospects; shortstop Jeter Downs and pitcher Josiah Gray.

Don't look for the Reds to get taken for a ride again should they decide to work out a deal with the Dodgers.

Cincinnati would be in the market for prospects, and given how desperate the market is for starting pitching, the Reds might be able to land a Top 100 prospect in exchange for Sonny Gray.

The Dodgers have five Top 100 prospects according to MLB Pipeline; Diego Cartaya, Ryan Pepiot, Michael Busch, Bobby Miller, and Andy Pages.

A player like Pages would be a great asset for the Reds. The toolsy outfield prospect has a plus-plus arm and solid skills at the dish.

If sacrificing Andy Pages is too much for LA to stomach, some top-level pitching talent resides in the Dodgers' organization.

Andre Jackson, Landon Knack, and Clayton Beeter might be more realistic trade targets for Nick Krall and the Cincinnati Reds front office.
