According to FanGraphs.com, the Reds have the best defense in baseball. Their ultimate zone rating, which takes into account, among other things, runs saved by outfielders who prevent runners from advancing and infielders who are better than average at turning double plays, leads the major leagues.
“I don’t think we have a weak spot defensively,” Price said. “To be able to move Adam Duvall from corner infielder to left field and have him play gold-glove caliber defense, you couldn’t have seen that happening. We couldn’t have seen the transition with (Eugenio) Suarez moving from shortstop to third happening so quickly, but it’s been sensational.
“Even (Jose) Peraza getting regular reps at second base, he gets better every day. Then you have your stalwart out there in Cozart, who captains that infield. Having a veteran player in the middle makes everyone around him better. Suarez and Peraza can learn a lot from how Zack plays the game.”
Reds at Giants, 10:15 p.m. Thursday, FS Ohio, 700, 1410
