Aristides Aquino has signed a contract with Chunichi Dragons of NPB.
Aquino will be remembered for his monster 2019 season with the Reds when he hit 19 home runs in just 225 plate appearances. The move should guarantee regular playing time for TJ Friedl and Jake Fraley.
Aristides Aquino went two-for-four with a solo HR in the Reds' loss to the Pirates on Monday.
Aquino is getting playing time down the stretch and has delivered with six HRs this month. If you're desperate for HRs, he could be worth a shot. However, he may hurt your batting average as he strikes out 36.5% of the time.
Aristides Aquino went two-for-four with his ninth home run in the Reds' victory Thursday. Aquino has five HRs in September.
Aquino has been one of the Reds' best hitters in September, hitting .326 this month with five HRs and ten RBI. He's cut down on his strikeouts, but it's hard to trust that he'll continue to hit for average. He's always been a great power source, though, if you are desperate for homers.
Aristides Aquino had two hits in three at-bats, including his eighth homer of the season with a man aboard Monday.
Aquino is rolling right now, with four HRs in his last eight games. He's also batting .385 over that period and has cut down on his strikeouts. However, it's a small sample size, and he'll need to do it for a bit longer before inspiring much trust.
Aristides Aquino had three hits, including two HRs, and three RBI in the Reds' 7-1 victory over the Cubs Wednesday.
Aquino has been surging lately with eight hits over his last 16 at-bats, three of which left the yard. Aquino has a ton of power and can help you with HRs and RBI, but it may come at the price of your batting average. He's only hitting .199 on the season, and with a 40% K-rate, he isn't likely to turn it around.
