MLB Free Agency: What Closers Could Be on the Cincinnati Reds' Radar?

The Reds had one of the most dominant closers in all of baseball last season. Aroldis Chapman wowed fans and opposing players with pitches regularly topping the 100 mph mark, but the team isn't quite satisfied with his current role. 

As I noted in my last article, the Reds have yet to determine what role Chapman will occupy in the 2013 season.

While I'm an advocate of keeping Chapman as the team's closer, there's a serious possibility that the team could move him to the starting rotation.

According to team GM Walt Jocketty and writer Mark Sheldon, that decision hinges on the organization's ability to re-sign Ryan Madson and/or Jonathan Broxton, or sign a closer to replace Chapman.

Here are some possible targets for the Reds this offseason.
