Reds Sign Eugenio Suarez To A Seven-Year Extension

on

The Reds and 3B Eugenio Suarez have agreed to a seven-year extension, as first reported by The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans.

The 7 year/$66 million extension runs through 2024 and includes a $15 million club option for 2025, as well as a $2 million buyout, as per MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon.

Suarez was traded to the Reds in December of 2014 in a deal that sent Alfredo Simon to the Tigers.

Suarez has been a centerpiece of the Reds rebuild, playing 159 games in 2016 and 156 games in 2017. In 2017, Suarez set a career high in home runs, runs, and runs batted in.

The Reds are clearly focused on locking up their youth, as they have signed Tucker Barnhart and Suarez to multi-year extensions this offseason.

The Cincinnati Reds have placed Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list due to a right knee contusion that he suffered last week when he was hit near the knee by Washington Nationals pitcher Ryan Madson in what has been viewed as intentional.

After the hit, Votto limped to first base as he barked at Madson, who appeared to be retaliating for the plunking of National players, such as Bryce Harper.

The trip to the disabled list will mark the first one for Votto since 2014, and he is posting a .284/.422/.419 batting line this season.
