Reds Eyeing Starting Pitching

The Reds are searching for starting pitchers that they could acquire between now and the end of July, according to Danny Knobler of CBS (Twitter links). Cincinnati has interest in Jeremy Guthrie, according to Knobler (though many teams likely have interest in the Orioles’ righty, who has a 3.56 ERA through 91 innings).

The Reds' current rotation consists of Bronson Arroyo, Mike Leake, Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez and Travis Wood. However, Arroyo has been hittable and Volquez is walking 5.9 batters per nine innings. Homer Bailey is on the disabled list along with Sam LeCure and Matt Maloney, two occasional starters for Dusty Baker, so internal help could be on the way.

Guthrie figured prominently into Tim Dierkes' list of potentially available starters earlier in the month.
