Who are the last 5 Reds players with 100 RBI in a single season?

Some may view it as an antiquated stat, but RBI still matter.

2. Reds infielder Eugenio Suarez recorded over 100 RBI in 2018 and 2019.

Some Reds fans miss Sonny Gray, while others wish Luis Castillo was still pitching for Cincinnati. But for me, the player I miss most is Eugenio Suarez. The Reds included Geno in the 2022 trade that sent Jesse Winker to the Seattle Mariners.

Let's call it what it was - a salary dump. The Mariners will tell you until they're blue in the face that they were excited to have Suarez as part of their organization, but at the time of the trade, Geno was coming off back-to-back seasons in which he wasn't himself.

The Reds third baseman incurred a shoulder injury in 2020 that slowed his progress that season and. carried over into 2021. The Reds parted ways with Suarez, and once he arrived in Seattle, Geno looked like himself again. Last year, Suarez hit 31 home runs while wearing that trademark smile.

Eugenio Suarez's return to form in 2022 was eerily similar to his past performances with the Cincinnati Reds. Geno recorded back-to-back seasons of 100-plus RBI. Suarez eclipsed 100 RBI in both 2018 and 2019 while hitting .277/.362/.550 collectively.

Suarez's smile is missed around the Reds clubhouse, but most fans have fond memories of Geno swinging for the fences during his time in Cincinnati. Suarez is trying to help his team to back-to-back playoff appearances as the Mariners have their eye on a Wild Card berth.
