Early Thursday morning, Infielder Jeimer Candelario and the Cincinnati Reds came to an agreement on a three-year, $45 million contract. Candelario, 30, joins a young Reds team that has spent $87 million on free agents this winter, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.

The Reds have been on a spending spree to make their team more competitive. Last season, finishing 82-80, was such a promising performance for a young Reds club. So promising that it has led them to be one of the most active shoppers in free agency.

Adding Candelario to this young roster provides a lot of positives. Candelario slashed .251/.336/.471 with 22 home runs and 70 RBI, between Washington and Chicago (NL). Not only is he providing a switch hitting power bat, but the veteran leadership that Cincinnati could use.

The Reds are making a lot of noise this offseason, a refreshing change. Lets face it, this Reds club is exciting and the more moves they make, the more exciting they get. Mixing these young stars with the vets, this Reds team could make a whole lot of noise in 2024.
