According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, free agent Scott Rolen "wants to play."

Fay suspects that money could be an issue with the Reds, who are "at or above their budget for payroll" and that Rolen could wind up with the Dodgers. The 37-year-old third baseman batted just .245/.318/.398 last season but could see regular playing time in Los Angeles if he's healthy. Luis Cruz is currently penciled in as the Dodgers' starter at the hot corner.
