Reds Agree To Three-Year Deal With Jeimer Candelario


The Reds have agreed to a deal with third baseman Jeimer Candelario, according to’s Mark Feinsand. The deal is pending a physical. Jon Morosi of MLB Network and Mike Rodriguez of Univision had previously reported that the Reds were a finalist for Candelario’s services. According to Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the deal is worth $45MM guaranteed over three years, with a club option that could take the total to four years and $60MM. Candelario, 30, is coming off one of the finest seasons of his career, having turned in a combined .251/.336/.471 batting line with 22 home runs (a career-high), 39 doubles, three triples and an 8-for-9 showing in stolen base attempts. That production came in a season split between the Nationals, who signed him to a one-year $5MM deal after the Tigers non-tendered him last winter, and the Cubs, who originally signed Candelario, traded him to Detroit in 2017, and reacquired him this past July.
