LF,CF - CIN
Expert NoteView More Notes
Akiyama should represent a fairly high-floor outfield option that you can get at a bargain basement price. He'll likely bat leadoff for the Reds, potentially hit 20 home runs and steal 10 bases, and pile on the runs scored. There's no Shohei Ohtani upside with the bat, particularly given Akiyama's age, but he'll likely be a decent five-category contributor who is basically free in drafts.

Shogo Akiyama, Reds reach three-year agreement
Joel Sherman of The New York Post reported this week that the Reds reached a three-year agreement with Shogo Akiyama.
Akiyama, a 31-year-old outfielder from Japan, played in 143 games for the Seibu Lions last year. He hit .303 with a .392 OBP, 20 homers, 112 runs scored, and 12 steals in 2019. Known for his on-base ability, Akiyama could slide into the top of the Reds' lineup this season.
