Mike Moustakas to sign 4-year, $64 million deal with Reds

Former Brewers third baseman Mike Moustakas is signing a four-year, $64 million contract with the Cincinnati Reds, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Moustakas is the second major departure from the Brewers via free agency. Last month the Brewers lost catcher Yasmani Grandal to the White Sox on a multi-year deal worth over $70 million.

Moustakas first joined the Brewers in a 2018 Trade Deadline deal. Moustakas helped the Brewers claim the NL central while hitting 8 home runs and 33 RBI in 54 games.

Moustakas rejoined the Brewers in 2019 on a one-year, $10 million deal and was an important player in the team’s season. He slashed .254/.329/.516 in 143 games in 2019, hitting 35 home runs and 87 RBI.

Passan reports that Moustaks will play second base for the Reds.
