The Cincinnati Reds have decided to keep their fireballer closer Aroldis Chapman in that role for the 2013 season.

There had been speculation with Chapman starting this spring, that he was going to be moved into the rotation.

Chapman has said all along that he would prefer to close games.

The Reds have a solid rotation in Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey and Mike Leake. That quintet started every game but one during the 2012 season, the best in Major League Baseball.

Cueto will start the Opening Day Game on April 1 against the Los Angeles Angels at Great American Ball Park.

Eventhough there has not been an announcement about Joey Votto made by the Reds, there are reports out of Cincinnati, on radio talk shows and TV news reports that there has been an agreement on a 10-year, $225-million contract extension through the year 2023.

The terms also include a no-trade clause and will be the richest in franchise history.

The 28-year-old Votto, who is from Canada, batted .309 with 29 homers and 103 RBI’s in 161 games for the Reds in 2011. He is an excellent fielder and received the first National League Gold Glove Award in his career.

Votto, still has two years remaining on the three-year, $38-million contract that he signed in January of 2011. He’ll make $9.5 million this year and $17 million in 2013.

Albert Pujols, who just signed a $200 -million plus free agent deal during the off-season with the Los Angeles Angels, shares the same agent with Votto, Dan Lozano.

The recently signed free-agent outfielder cracked a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Reds a 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Bronson Arroyo pitched brilliantly as the Reds starter, allowing two runs in six innings. It was his longest pitching stint of the spring.
