The Reds are keeping Eugenio Suarez around. General manager Dick Williams says the club signed him to a seven year contract with a team option in year eight. That will keep Suarez under contract through the 2024 season. The deal is worth $66 million and could be worth up to $79 million if the Reds exercise their option in 2025 according to Tommy Stokke.

“We are very pleased to announce this extension. Eugenio has emerged as a leader in the clubhouse and on the field. He has continued to improve his defense, his power and his ability to get on base as a result of his determined effort," Williams said in a statement. “He will play an important role in our resurgence.”

Suárez, 26, following was eligible for arbitration for the first time after the 2017 season, while under team control through 2020.
