Mike Moustakas
Defense holding up so far
2BCincinnati Reds
July 14, 2020
The Reds have been pleased with Moustakas's defense at second base so far, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "He's made all the plays," manager David Bell said. "He has great hands. He has a strong arm, which you can get away without having a really strong arm at second base. But it does help, especially with the way teams play defense now. A lot of times, he'll be in a nontraditional position."

Struggling so far

Strop has struggled with his rhythm and command since returning to summer training, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I mean, body-wise, I feel really good, I just need to get a couple of things, like game-feel, like getting real hitters to the plate," Strop said on Monday. "Sometimes when you play against your teammates, there's stuff you're going to miss. Sometimes, me personally, I'm afraid to go inside to one of my teammates. I'm pretty sure when we have our first game against Detroit, I'll want to be able to execute my pitches inside so that way I can use the outside of the plate with my sliders and all that."

Though Castellanos is presumably a good fit to DH for the Reds, he'd prefer to play in the field instead, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I don't want to DH. I chose to come to the Reds -- first and foremost, I believe they can win," Castellanos said on Tuesday. "But also, I like being in the National League where I get to play defense every day.
