Everybody knows that Andrelton Simmons is a fantastic defensive shortstop, but sometimes it’s nice to get a reminder. Look at Simmons show off some remarkable athleticism to get a forceout at second base in the top of the fourth inning against the Marlins this evening:

Not only does Simmons change direction on a dime to make the stop, but he has the presence of mind to get the out at second base, too. That’s…just not fair.

The Reds have signed outfielder Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Revere is expected to take home a salary between $1 million and $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster, Heyman adds.

Revere, 29, spent last season with the Angels. He batted a light .275/.308/.344 in 308 plate appearances. Revere does have some speed as he stole 21 bases last year.

Revere will try to earn a spot on the roster as a backup outfielder. The Reds’ starting spots are spoken for with Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton, and Scott Schebler.
