The 30-year-old Galvis performed at the plate much as he had in his career, putting up an 86 OPS+ in 2020, better than his career 82 OPS+, but down from his career-best 92 in 2019. Nov. 1: The Reds have formally announced that Galvis’ option has indeed been picked up. The team isnt far from being a contender but moves need to be made and some money spent. If both positions are filled from the outside, he could also be a useful utility player. The Reds made nice moves picking him up and exercising their club option. There was a $1 million buyout. I agree that this is a good move. Over 147 games between the Blue Jays and Reds in 2019, Galvis batted.260/.296/.438 and set career highs with 23 home runs and 70 RBIs. Jose Peraza and Derek Dietrich are also on hand as potential infield candidates, and Nick Senzel could also potentially factor back into the second base mix if the Reds opt to acquire an everyday center fielder rather than continue to deploying Senzel on the grass.Â Galvis’ $5.5MM is more than either Peraza ($3.6MM) or Dietrich ($3.1MM) are projected to earn in arbitration, making one or both players expendable as non-tender candidates.Â With the Reds firmly intent on a postseason berth next year, they could be aggressive in looking for an everyday shortstop AND center fielder, thus making Senzel the new second baseman and keeping Galvis in a utility infield role.

Peraza can go, he has never impressed me. Galvis, who turns 30 on Nov. 14, was claimed by the Reds off waivers from Toronto on Aug. 12 and hit .234 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 32 games. CINCINNATI -- Infielder Freddy Galvis' $5.5 million option for next season has been exercised by the Cincinnati Reds. Over 147 games between the Blue Jays and Reds in 2019, Galvis batted .260/.296/.438 and set career highs with 23 home runs and 70 RBIs. I hope Gavis didn’t completely unpack his bags in Cincy, since he will be traded again come summer 2020. good choice. He hit .234/.284/.411 (76 OPS+) for the Reds after they picked him up – that’s 24% less than the average MLB hitter. Rather have him then Dietrich. I was hoping for a Phillies reunion. 23 homers is a decent year. There was a $1 million buyout. Hard to call him one of the better claims.

He’d be a perfect super utility guy for this team. Iâd rather have Iglesias than DiDi if the price is there. All the talk bout Grandal I really donât see them going hard for him I wonder where that ranks among SS. to play 2nd and we have added 50 HRs with a lot of pop. Jose Iglesias, Cincinnati's regular shortstop this year, became a free agent Thursday. Sportsnet’s Shi … Nice bat for the lineup. Money should be spent elsewhere. Came over on a waiver claim actually, not a trade. At best, a late inning defensive specialist. Great pick up by the Reds.

Freddy, prob a bench player, iggy, Peraza and Dietrich prob gone unless signing on the cheap, still need a big bat @ cf and some pitching help, another starter and a reliever prob, we saw from the WS how much pitching can win, they need Grandal or Betts. CINCINNATI -- Infielder Freddy Galvis ' $5.5 million option for next season has been exercised by the Cincinnati Reds. Now for a new center fielder possible via trade. One of the better waiver claims this past season. Seems like an expensive bench player this early in the off season. Galvis still plays Gold Glove level defense and he is a good clubhouse guy. I dove into some of the positives and negatives in the linked piece over at Redleg Nation. The guy the Padres had to trade for to have even a .01% chance of him signing with them? He did very little of that offense for the reds tho, “I wonder where that ranks among SS.” Thereâs no room for guys like that on championship caliber ball clubs in this day and age. That seems like a lot of money for that type of player. Wish Freddy was still on the Jays. Galvis hit .260/.296/.438 with a career-best 23 homers over 589 plate appearances last season, coming over to Cincinnati in a midseason trade from the Blue Jays.Â He was one of many players to benefit from inflated power numbers in the homer-happy 2019 season, as his batting average, OBP, and even his slugging percentage weren’t too far removed from career norms.Â Playing mostly at shortstop in Toronto and then mostly as a second baseman with the Reds, Galvis posted decent defensive statistics at both positions, making him a flexible bench piece for next season as Cincinnati decides on its next step in the middle infield. Over 147 games between the Blue Jays and Reds in 2019, Galvis batted .260/.296/.438 and set career highs with 23 home runs and 70.
