    Website listed this proposal as a major overpay. I have no problem trading India for Moore. India is blocked by Suarez at 3B where he has played almost exclusively as a pro. He did see some time at 2B in the Arizona League, but struggled. If Moore doesn’t take over at short for the Reds he can join Kyle Farmer as a super utility player and Suarez can slide back over to SS…the position he came to the majors playing

      Lol Suárez can’t play short stop 😂. If the Reds thought he could play short stop they would put him there and start India at third or move mouse over to third and have India play second. Plus India is way to much to give up for a one hit wonder, in Dylan Moore. Is Moore’s defense good? Yes, but the bat is a huge question mark.

        While I agree that Suarez can’t play SS, I’m struggling to wonder why you’re calling Moore a one hit wonder. His defensive versatility is definitely a high selling point but his bat is equally effective, evidenced by his 139 OPS+ last season. That definitely looks odd coming from a guy that put up just 87 OPS+ last season, but his Statcast profile supports his production. He sits in the 89th percentile in Barrel%, 77th in Exit Velocity, and 78th in HardHit%. To put that in perspective, that’s eerily similar to Joey Gallo, without the major strikeout issues that Gallo has. Other players with a similar batted ball profile to Moore are Pete Alonso and the Reds own Eugenio Suarez. In that kind of company, I wouldn’t venture to call Moore a superstar but there is certainly a lot of evidence to suggest he isn’t a one hit wonder.

        For further evidence, even his BABIP was not that egregious (.314), so a 139 OPS+ isn’t that far off from the hitter he should realistically be. Not to mention that the Mariners have done a fair job of discovering diamonds in the rough recently, for example Austin Nola.

    Unlike most teams, the Reds use Suarez at short during shifts and he has done a fine job. If they did move him back to short it would only have to be for a year or so when Garcia will be ready.

    Look at Keston Hiura’s rookie season stat cast numbers and then look at his 2020 numbers, just because he has a good year in stat cast numbers does not mean you will be a good player.While Moore’s numbers are good he seems like he would be more of a 245/310/435 kind of a hitter while that is still very valuable with his plus defense, he just is not worth Jonathan India who I think could put up very similar numbers.
