The plan for the Reds is to play Moustakas at second base, with their third base spot already solidified by All-Star Eugenio Suarez. The 30-year-old hit .254 with 35 home runs and 87 RBIs last season, making it to the All-Star Game for the third time in his career. He also helped an 89-win team overcome the loss of MVP candidate Christian Yelich and reach the Postseason for the second time in as many seasons. Over eight major league seasons, Moustakas has hit .252 with 182 home runs and 561 RBIs, winning the World Series with the Royals in 2015. He adds pop to an already powerful Reds lineup that includes Suarez, Joey Votto, and Aristides Aquino.
Another power-hitting left-handed batter that found a new home was veteran outfielder Corey Dickerson, who has joined the Miami Marlins on a two-year contract. That deal is worth $17.5 million, giving a young, rebuilding Miami team some veteran leadership in the clubhouse. The 30-year-old hit .304 last season with 12 home runs and 59 RBIs as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies, who are also in the NL East Division. The Phillies acquired Dickerson at the July 31st Trade Deadline, which gave them some power that included 42 extra-base hits and a .565 slugging percentage. Dickerson is also a former Gold Glove Award winner in 2018 and has a career .286 batting average with 115 home runs and 370 RBIs in 776 games since getting drafted by the Colorado Rockies in 2009.
