The Reds just bagged a Moose. The team signed Mike “Moose” Moustakas to a 4-year, $64 million contract. Moose usually plays third but will move to second since the Reds have Eugenio Suarez at the hot corner. This will also allow Nick Senzel to return to center when he’s healthy.
Moustakas hit .254 with 35 homers and 87 RBIs last season for the Brewers, earning his third All-Star selection. After starting the season at second base, he moved to third when Travis Shaw slumped.
Moose has 182 homers, a .252 average and 561 RBIs in eight major league seasons.
