Tyler Naquin or Shogo Akiyama? The Reds’ Center Field Debate

The Cincinnati Reds have no dilemmas when it comes to who should man the corner outfield positions, what with two potential MVP candidates currently manning each of those positions. Center field, however, is a different story. With the return of Shogo Akiyama from the injured list at the beginning of May, manager David Bell has had a tough time trying to get playing time for the second-year outfielder.

Reds' Shogo Akiyama: Drives in only run Tuesday

Akiyama went 1-for-2 with an RBI single in a loss to the Brewers on Tuesday. The 33-year-old's second-inning single brought home Tucker Barnhart with the first run of the game for either squad. Akiyama is 3-for-6 over his last two games to get his average back over the Mendoza Line to .217, but his .533 OPS through 51 plate appearances underscores how much he continues to struggle through a season-plus against big-league arms after a successful career in Japan.

That wasn’t the case with Cincinnati Reds‘ outfielder Shogo Akiyama last season, and fans should expect the same in 2021 after the Japanese-born outfielder missed the majority of spring training.

Reds: Tyler Naquin’s power will keep Shogo Akiyama on the bench

It may be a tough pill to swallow, but Shogo Akiyama may have to get used to riding the pine. Cincinnati Reds slugger Tyler Naquin is hitting too well to share playing time. While Akiyama’s 3-year/$21M contract would suggest otherwise, David Bell must stick with Naquin until the former Cleveland Indians outfielder stops producing.
