Aristides Aquino Has Minor League Options Left

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Aristides Aquino, who burst onto the scene in 2019, has minor league options remaining, which will make it even tougher to crack the Opening Day roster after the Reds added outfielders Nick Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama in free agency. Aquino hit .320 with 14 home runs and a 1.160 OPS in his first month in the majors, but he batted just .196 with five home runs and a .619 OPS in September. The 25-year-old (26 in April) punished balls in the strike zone, but he swung and missed on 38 percent of the breaking balls he offered at outside the zone. Aquino set major league records with the fewest plate appearances to 15 home runs (122) and fewest games to 14 home runs (28). There's some real power here, but the strikeouts also piled up. Aquino might need an injury to get consistent playing time in the majors in 2020, so he's mostly just a late-round upside flier for outfield depth in mixed redraft leagues.

Nick Senzel Has Been Hitting

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel (shoulder), who had surgery in September to fix a torn labrum in his right shoulder, has been hitting. Manager David Bell said that Senzel is picking up his throwing program this week and is on pace to be ready around Opening Day. Barring a setback, Senzel may not have to miss any regular season time. The 24-year-old hit .256/.315/.427 with 12 home runs, 42 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 375 at-bats in his rookie season. He'll probably have some more ups and downs in his sophomore season, but there's obvious power/speed upside to Senzel's game, and he'll be hitting in a more potent Reds offense in 2020. RotoBaller has him ranked just outside the top 50 fantasy outfielders.

Eugenio Suarez Has A Realistic Shot At Opening Day

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez (shoulder) has a realistic chance at being ready for Opening Day, according to manager David Bell. The 28-year-old underwent surgery to remove loose cartilage in his shoulder back in January. While this is a promising step in the right direction, Suarez still needs to resume swinging a bat and throwing before a firmer timetable for return can be set. He slashed .271/.358/.572 last season with 49 home runs and 103 RBI. Even with the slight shoulder ailment, he is a worthy third-base option in all formats heading into 2020.

Reds Re-Sign Derek Dietrich

The Cincinnati Reds re-signed infielder/outfielder Derek Dietrich to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training on Wednesday. Dietrich had a career-high 19 home runs and drove in 43 runs in 113 games for Cincinnati in 2019, but he hit just .187/.328/.462 and struck out 74 times. He's useful to the Reds and those in NL-only leagues because of his versatility on the diamond, but it could be hard for him to win a utility job in 2020 after the Reds beefed up their offense in the offseason. At best, Dietrich could be a DFS sleeper when he's in the lineup if he wins a bench job again.

Nick Senzel Not Expected To Be Traded

Cincinnati Reds president of baseball operations Dick Williams said that he expects outfielder Nick Senzel to remain with the team for the 2020 season. "I like what he brings to our club. Hes one of our own. Hes an impact, young offensive player. They dont come along very often. The flexibility he brings to the club, attitude he brings. At this point, we see him as very much a part of a winning, championship team here," Williams said. Even though Senzel struggled somewhat in his rookie season in 2019 and is coming off labrum surgery in his right shoulder, the Reds are optimistic about his potential. Because of the surgery, Senzel isn't a candidate to play third base or shortstop this year. The 24-year-old will play every day if he's healthy, and his power-speed combination makes him an attractive upside pick in drafts in an improved lineup. If the Reds don't trade Senzel, it'll be bad news mostly for Jesse Winker and Aristides Aquino, as Cincy also has Nicholas Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama in their outfield.
