  • Reds Sign Nicholas Castellanos To 4 Years $64 Million

    The Reds have officially announced a deal with Nicholas Castellanos for a guaranteed $64MM over a four-year term. That sum will be paid out in the form of a $16MM salary in 2020, $14MM in 2021 and $16MM salaries in 2022-23. There’s also a $20MM mutual option for a fifth season that comes with a $2MM buyout. Castellanos can opt out of the contract after the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

    Castellanos has had some ups and downs but the numbers have been there at the end of each of the past several seasons. He has produced at about 20% north of the league-average rate since the start of the 2016 season. And Castellanos ended 2019 on a tear, mashing out a .321/.356/.646 run in 225 plate appearances with the Cubs.
