After signing All-Star infielder Mike Moustakas, the Cincinnati Reds are reportedly looking to strike again with interest in All-Star outfielder Marcell Ozuna

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, Cincinnati is among the team’s interested in the corner outfielder.

Ozuna is coming off a successful 2019 season with the St. Louis Cardinals. A two-time All-Star, the 29-year-old hit 29 home runs with 89 RBI and a .800 OPS last season. He erupted in the postseason with a .954 OPS, two home runs and four doubles in 37 at-bats.

Cincinnati is among five teams that have been heavily connected to Ozuna this offseason. He’s also drawing interest from the Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Ozuna offers the versatility to play either corner outfield spot, though, he last played right field in 2017 with the Miami Marlins.
