Schebler was designated for assignment after not making the teams opening day roster. Last season was hampered by a shoulder injury that ultimately required surgery, costing him some of the second half of the year. Prior to the 2019 season he had been a league average to slightly above league average hitter in the Major Leagues each season of his career. If he’s healthy again, he certainly can help out a team with room in the outfield thanks to his defense (can play all three spots if asked), speed, and pop in his bat.
In return for Scott Schebler the Cincinnati Reds are receiving cash considerations – first reported by Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
