John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that he's "hearing" that veteran third baseman Scott Rolen wants to play again in 2013.

Fayman also writes that a return to the Reds might be unlikely, what with the team's maxed-out budget and the fact that Todd Frazier and Jack Hannahan are penciled in as the third-base platoon.

Rolen, who'll turn 38 just after opening day, is coming off a season in which he batted .245/.318/.398 across 330 plate appearances.
