The MLB draft is coming up in less than three weeks. The 1st night of the draft will take place on June 4th, with the draft ending with the 40th round being completed on June 6th. Day three of the draft combines rounds 11-40 and almost kills me every single year. But that’s another story […]

The Cincinnati Reds have the most disciplined hitter in all of Major League Baseball on their Major League roster. You may have heard of him. If not, his name is Joseph Daniel Votto, and you should probably check him out. There’s a lot of things that make Joey Votto special. One of those things, though, […]

The minor league season is nearly a month in, but with the month of May starting we’re just going to call it a month in the books. That is only about 20% of the season, but it’s a good time to take a look at which players raised their stock with early performance in the […]

From the awesome Red Roof Inn here in Louisville, Kentucky, at 1:47am, I’m sitting down to type away for your reading pleasure (hopefully). On Tuesday evening I reached out to you guys for some topics that I could write about, but there were a few questions that I really found interesting and thought I’d give […]

The Daytona Tortugas are off to a great start to their minor league season. They are 9-3 after last nights victory. Outside of one game, where they allowed 18 runs in an 18-13 loss, the pitching staff has performed quite well. But, it’s the offense that has really stood out for the Reds Advanced-A affiliate. […]

The Minor League season is less than a week in, but it seems that Reds fans may need to start looking for good signs anywhere they can, and the minors has a few bright spots to look at right now. If you happened to be living under a rock in the last 48 hours, you […]

If you are only following my work here at Redleg Nation, you’re missing out. While I love Redleg Nation and the crew we have here, every single day I’m writing about the Cincinnati Reds farm system over at While I was out in Goodyear covering the minor league side of spring training, I had […]

Last week I spent seven days out in Goodyear, Arizona watching the Cincinnati Reds play baseball on the backfields. For the most part, it was almost entirely the minor leaguers, but since it’s been my job to cover that aspect of the organization, it was time incredibly well spent. Hunter Greene is an impressive, impressive […]

It’s been a whirlwind week for the Cincinnati Reds. It’s also been one of those weeks for me. I’ll be leaving for Goodyear on Friday, so if you’re looking for all of the good coverage from the backfields (or, well, any) be sure to follow me just about everywhere on the interweb. With all of […]

Spring training got underway two weeks ago for the big leaguers. Today, however, is the first day that minor league pitchers and catchers report. Position players will report on March 4th. The first minor league games will begin on March 17th for those of you who will be in Goodyear, that’s when you can catch […]

Yesterday the Cincinnati Reds kicked off spring training, officially. Pitchers and catchers reported and took their physicals. Later today they will have the first workout. As the resident minor league guru I figured it would be a good time to take some time to mention a few pitchers to keep an eye on that may […]

The next time that I write a column here at Redleg Nation pitchers and catchers will have reported to Goodyear for spring training. Can you feel the excitement? Before getting into the rules for the All Questions Answered, which can be found below, I thought I’d leave a few links and notes about the farm […]
