The Cincinnati Reds come into the 2013 season with the roster fairly intact from last season (minus some under the radar additions), a season that saw them end the season with a 97-65 record, giving them the National League Central Division title. With that success in the rear view mirror, they look to 2013 to build on it with a healthy roster (for example – Joey Votto, the perennial MVP candidate only played in 111 games last season) and reclaim their throne in the NL Central and get over the playoff hump with a trip to the World Series in October.

The notable offseason pickups for the Reds include Ryan Ludwick, a big bat who will supply depth in the outfield and pitcher Manny Parra, who will add a left-handed arm to their bullpen.
