I can see the Yotes making a deal for him. They had tons of rentals at the deadline and will have space. Its the type of move a team can do that will be well under the cap
I could see Florida having interest in a player on the back side of a frontloaded contract as well.

But like I said, getting rid of Rozsival just to get rid of Redden isn't much of a plan, IMO. Using BND's #'s, adding $5M to the $1.3M cap overage = $6.3M to cover the salary you bring back in the Rozsival trade + replacements for he and Redden.

Short term, I think they're better off keeping Rozsival and hoping Redden can be replaced with a player making under $1M.
