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 […]

It’s been a slow offseason at the Major League level, and that’s also extended to the Minor League level, too. Free agent signings haven’t been as bad among Minor Leaguers, but it’s still a slow roll. With that said, the last 24 hours have been full of news for the Reds farm system. Teams began […]

The winter league baseball regular seasons have all come to an end, at least in the northern hemisphere. The Dominican, Mexican and Venezuelan Winter Leagues are now all in the playoffs. Those wild Australians are still playing their regular season. There are several Cincinnati Reds players that have performed quite well. In the Mexican Winter […]

For today’s article I decided to hit up twitter for some questions to answer and you guys stepped up. How long does it take Senzel to see Cincy in 2018 and where will he play when he gets there? Is the Hunter Greene two way experiment over? If Ohtani does well as a 2 way […]

While the Major League season has been over for more than a month, winter league baseball around the world is still going. With leagues in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Venezuela, and Australia, there’s plenty of baseball to still follow along with if you’re needing your fix. Early in the Dominican Winter League Jose Siri was […]

Usually there’s only so many times during the offseason in which it’s minor league related news that dominate the headlines. There’s only two times in which it’s a scheduled event – the 40-man roster addition deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft, and then a few weeks later the actual Rule 5 Draft. […]

Last night on twitter I reached out to everyone for ideas on what to write about this week for my article here at Redleg Nation. There were a few good ideas that came through, but I ran out of time while doing some work on the Cincinnati Reds Top 25 Prospect List that I’m releasing […]

As I wrote in my last column here at Redleg Nation, the winter league began last week for multiple leagues around the world. The Arizona Fall League, the Dominican Winter League, the Venezuelan Winter League and the Mexican Winter League have all started. The Australian Winter League gets started in a month. With Puerto Rico […]

The Major League Baseball playoffs began last night. Hopefully you watched at least some of the four hour game between the Twins and Yankees last night. The Yankees won, for those of you who didn’t. Playoff baseball is tough to beat, so if you aren’t watching, you really should be. With all of that said, […]

Every day throughout the year I focus on writing about, learning about, watching and reading about minor league baseball. I’ve been doing that, almost every day for the last 12 years. Yes, that probably makes me a crazy person. But it’s also led to learning things that when I first started writing about minor league […]
