Eugenio Suarez

Eugenio Suarez was an All-Star in 2018, is on a long extension, but Cincinnati is looking to trim their payroll and unload some of their contracts.

The Reds already got rid of Rasiel Iglesias and his salary by trading him to the Los Angeles Angels. They have Sonny Gray, Suarez, and Mike Moustakas to possibly trade if they want to decrease their payroll for the 2021 MLB season. They are going to lose their Cy Young in Trevor Bauer and they realize that their possibility to contend is not very likely.

He hit 15 home runs in 57 games in 2020, but he slugged 49 in 159 games in 2019. The downside is that he led the league in strikeouts in 2019, with 189 K’s. He Has a career .815 OPS. He will be 29 at the beginning of next season and could have plenty to have. However, he will come at a cost.

Suarez is due $43.5 million through 2024 and has a $15 million player option for the 2025 season. Teams might not be willing to give up much talent if they were to take on his contract.

The slugger could be a big difference maker for a team looking to add a third baseman.
