CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds made a $14.1 million qualifying offer to leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo, but declined offers to right-hander Bronson Arroyo and four others.

They chose not to make offers to infielder Cesar Izturis, right-handed reliever Nick Masset and left-handed relievers Manny Parra and Zach Duke on Monday. All could re-sign with the Reds as free agents.

Choo was one of the top leadoff hitters in the majors with a .423 on-base percentage, a .285 batting average, 21 homers, 54 RBIs, 20 steals and 107 runs scored. He avoided arbitration last season by agreeing to a one-year, $7,375,000 deal.

If Choo declines the offer and signs with another team, the Reds will get compensation in next June's amateur draft.
Arroyo went 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA last season.
