The Reds are adding more power to their infield by agreeing to sign former Brewers slugger Mike Moustakas to the richest free-agent contract in club history, according to Major League Baseball insider reports.
That's the combined guarantee in Mike Moustakas' three free agencies now that he has reached a four-year, $64 million agreement with the Reds.
Moustakas became a free agent for the third straight offseason after declining a mutual option with the Brewers.
The 31-year-old slashed.254/.329/.516 with 35 home runs in 2019, making his third All-Star team in nine years.
The 32-year-old played 47 games at second base last year after playing third base nearly exclusively for his first eight major-league seasons - including 7 1/2 with the Royals. He spent almost 800 innings at third base as well as approximately 360 innings at second base. He had a $7 million salary this year and gets a $3 million buyout for declining his $10 million option.
