Reds: Comparing Amir Garrett’s $1.5-million salary vs the best closers

Raisel Iglesias, the Cincinnati Reds closer for the past several seasons, was shipped off to the Los Angeles Angels earlier this offseason.

Reds sign a bevy of international prospects

No relation. | Photo by Focus on Sport/ It’s international signing day! That means that the Reds are free to use their international pool money to sign players that don’t require being in the draft. By and large, these are kids who are 16 or 17 years old and hail from somewhere in Latin America. The Reds were expected to make a big splash here this year, as they have $6,431,000 to spend here, the most out of any team in MLB (tied with the Tigers, Marlins, Brewers, Twins, and Rays). Unsurprisingly, those teams are all of the teams that we’ve heard from the most...

Cincinnati Reds, Luis Castillo avoid arbitration with 1-year, $4.2 million contract

Cincinnati Reds, Luis Castillo avoid arbitration with 1-year, $4.2 million contract

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ The big fish among arb-eligibles will avoid a hearing. The deadline for teams and arbitration-eligible players to reach agreements on their 2021 salaries and avoid hearings was today, and it appears the Cincinnati Reds managed to do just that with each of their eligibles. We covered earlier the agreements reached with each of Michael Lorenzen, Jesse Winker, Noe Ramirez, Amir Garrett, and Tyler Mahle, but as the deadline passed, there had been no word of the status of ace Luis Castillo. Fortunately, it appears that was merely administrative, as...

Reds news: Amir Garrett, Tyler Mahle, and Jesse Winker receive raises

The trio of Reds will collectively take home $6.85M in 2021. The Cincinnati Reds have signed nearly every one of their arbitration-eligible players. Earlier today, Noé Ramirez got things rolling, signing a one-year/$1.175M contract. Michael Lorenzen inked a one-year/$4.4M deal as well.

The Cincinnati Reds and Amir Garrett have avoided an arbitration hearing this winter, as it appears the two have come to an agreement on a $1.5 million contract for the 2021 season.

Cincinnati Reds, Tyler Mahle avoid arbitration with 1-year, $2.2 million deal

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ One more arbitration hearing avoided. Tyler Mahle picked a good time to flash his best stuff to date, as his 2020 campaign for the Cincinnati Reds once again highlighted his ability to be a regular in their rotation going forward. It was a small sample in a short season, of course, but the 47.2 IP of 133 ERA+ pitching he provided them has him penciled in as a rotation cog for 2021 and beyond, and he put all that on the table in a platform year, to boot. Mahle was arbitration-eligible for the 1st time this offseason, and as...

Photo by Joe Robbins/ 2021 salaries for the trio were settled today. This afternoon marks the deadline for MLB clubs and arbitration-eligible players to reach agreement on contracts for the 2021 season, or else each side must submit a formal figure for an arbiter to settle independently later this winter. It’s often a contentious time, unfortunately, as it can so often end up a bit of a public debate over a player’s worth, even though the team has expressed interest in retaining said player’s work. Fortunately for the Cincinnati Reds, they avoided the ugly...
