Report: Reds sign Moustakas to 4-year deal

The Cincinnati Reds have reportedly made the first significant splash of the Major League Baseball offseason.

The Cincinnati Reds and the infielder agreed to a four-year, $64-million contract, sources told Jeff Passan of ESPN.

The deal is reportedly worth four-years, $64-million. Moustakas, 31, hit.254 with 35 homers, 87 RBI and an.845 OPS for the division rival Milwaukee Brewers last season. The hitter-friendly confines of Great American Ball Park should prove favorable to him.

Arsenal Make Tentative Brendan Rodgers Enquiries, Rebuffed
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Wednesday's Merseyside derby could "solve a lot of problems" for Everton boss Marco Silva . Arsenal were previously interested in hiring Rodgers, after Arsene Wenger announced he'd be leaving the club.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports Moustakas, who came up as a third baseman, will play second base with his new team after appearing in 47 games at second last season.

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 started the season playing second, then switched back to third nearly exclusively in June.

As it turns out, Moustakas signed sooner than later after all ... just not with the Phillies. He's a career.252 hitter and a three-time All-Star, including with Milwaukee in 2019.
