Cincinnati Reds to sign infielder Jeimer Candelario, per reports

The Cincinnati Reds told future Hall of Famer Joey Votto that there would not be enough plate appearances for him in 2024 when they declined his option earlier this offseason. A quick glance at what’s around the roster as infield options made that tough to swallow, but make sense - each of Christian Encarnacion-Strand, Spencer Steer, Jonathan India, Matt McLain, Elly De La Cruz, and Noelvi Marte put their stamp on the team as infielders during the 2023 season, after all.

With a plethora of infielders already in-tow and the former face of the franchise already out, it’s with a furrowed brow that I relay that the Reds have reportedly signed another infielder.
