Rolen may return for another year with Reds
Scott Rolen seemed ready to retire after the Reds lost to the Giants in the playoffs. But Rolen is having second thoughts, and sources say he might want to go to spring training and give it another try in 2013. The Reds would be happy to have him back.

Scott Rolen could be coming back for another year.
Rolen, who will turn 38 in April, seemed ready to retire when the Reds season ended with their playoff loss to the Giants. He was limited to just 92 games because of injuries, after playing only 65 games the year before.
But Rolen has now suggested to the Reds that he might want to go to spring training and give it another try, according to sources, and the Reds would be more than happy to give him a chance. The Reds believe he can help, on the field and especially in the clubhouse, where they value his leadership.
The Reds have given themselves other options at third base. Todd Frazier played 73 games there last year, and Wednesday, the Reds agreed to terms with Jack Hannahan.
