Free-agent outfielder Nicholas Castellanos has agreed to a deal with the Cincinnati Reds, according to a report from MLB insider Jon Heyman. It is expected to be a multi-year deal. (Jon Heyman on Twitter)
Castellanos batted .289 with 27 home runs, 100 runs scored, 73 RBI, and two stolen bases with the Detroit Tigers and Chicago Cubs last season, but he was particularly good for the Cubs after they acquired him via trade. His market moved slowly this offseason, but he now joins a Reds squad that has made a number of moves in hopes of competing in 2020.
