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.

As the trade drags on, it is possible that the Yankees could run out of patience and deal Gray elsewhere.

According to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, the Yankees had received multiple offers from teams for Gray as of last Friday, so if the deal with the Reds fall through, they have other options.
