Franmil Reyes includes a new home. The 27-year-old outfielder is going to the Cubs, the club announced Monday.
He wasnt addressing the fastball, also it appeared like the hanging breaking ball, he was sort of hitting it maybe for an individual, and there is an intermittent home run, Guardians manager Terry Francona said on Saturday. But just wasnt obtaining the pitches he used to.
The Cubs hope Reyes can go back to the ball player he was on the previous three seasons. This past year, Reyes appeared as if one of the most promising young sluggers in baseball, hitting .254/.324/.522 with 30 home runs in 115 games. In 2019 and ’20 combined, he hit 46 home runs in 209 games.
Reyes developed the Padres in 2018 before being traded to Cleveland in a three-way deal at the 2019 Trade Deadline. He was in the Guardians Opening Day lineup in each one of the past three seasons.
Reyes is owed about $1.5 million through the others of the season. He’ll be arbitration-eligible this coming offseason.
