  • Nick Castellanos: Declines qualifying offer

    Castellanos declined the one-year, $18.4 million qualifying offer from the Reds on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 29-year-old declined his $16 million player option for 2022 last week, so Cincinnati decided to extend him the qualifying offer. Castellanos unsurprisingly declined, and the Reds will now receive draft pick compensation depending on the specifics of his new deal, assuming he signs elsewhere. He should receive significant interest on the open market after hitting .309/.362/.576 with 34 homers, 38 doubles, 100 RBI and 95 runs in 138 games during 2021.

  • Nick Castellanos: Reds extend qualifying offer

    Castellanos was extended a $18.4 million qualifying offer by the Reds for 2022, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Castellanos recently declined his $16 million player option, and it's not a surprise Cincinnati will extend the qualifying offer given he's likely to receive a significant multi-year contract this offseason. The 29-year-old will almost certainly decline the offer and instead test the open market. He enjoyed the most productive season of his career in 2021, hitting .309/.362/.576 with 34 homers, 38 doubles, 100 RBI and 95 runs in 138 games.

  • Reds' Nick Castellanos: Opts out, bound for free agency

    Castellanos declined his $16 million player option Thursday, voiding the remaining two years left on his contract to become a free agent, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    In a move that was fully anticipated, Castellanos will pursue a more lucrative deal this winter on the open market, where he's expected to be one of the most sought-after hitters coming off a 2021 campaign in which he was named an All-Star starter while finishing with career-best marks in batting average (.309), on-base average (.362) and home runs (34). Before Castellanos officially becomes a free agent, the Reds are expected to extend him a one-year, $18.4 million qualifying offer, which he'll almost certainly decline.

  • Reds' Nick Castellanos: Expected to opt out

    Castellanos is expected to decline his $16 million player option with the Reds for 2022 and become a free agent, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Picking up the option would also lock Castellanos with Cincinnati for 2023 at $16 million, and it's not much of a surprise he's set to test free agency after hitting .309/.362/.576 with 34 homers, 38 doubles, 100 RBI and 95 runs in 138 games during 2021. The Reds are apparently interested in bringing back the 29-year-old, but he should receive plenty of interest on the open market while coming off the most productive season of his career.
