Nothing would erase Friday night’s Milton-esque performance like two wins. The Reds (15-30) will play a doubleheader against the Cubs (23-18) at Great American Ball Park today to make up for a rainout on April 3. Game one begins at 1:10 p.m. ET, while first pitch for game two is set for 7:10 p.m. ET, […]

The Cincinnati Reds (15-29) will look to continue their 2018 dominance of the Chicago Cubs (22-18) this weekend in Great American Ball Park. Despite their poor overall record, the Reds have eviscerated their division foes, going undefeated against the NL Central favorites this year. The two teams will meet for four games in three days, […]

The Reds have made a habit of picking pitchers up off the scrap heap and later flipping them for promising young players who have shaped today’s roster. In 2014, they turned Alfredo Simon, a former waiver-wire addition, into eventual third baseman of the future Eugenio Suarez. In 2017, they dealt another waiver claim, Dan Straily, […]

When the Reds fired pitching coach Mack Jenkins on April 18, they brought in Danny Darwin from Double-A Pensacola to take over the job. One of his goals for the team’s pitching staff: get them to throw inside with more regularity. “We’re going to pitch inside. That’s one thing that needs to happen here, try […]

The first two days of the Jim Riggleman era haven’t looked much different for the Reds (3-17), who are now one loss away from their worst start in franchise history. At the very least, the team showed some fight yesterday, battling back from a three-run deficit to tie the game in the seventh inning and […]

Well, Bryan Price or not, the Reds (3-16) are still who we thought they were. Believe it or not, Jim Riggleman couldn’t fix everything in one game. Brandon Finnegan was erratic and the offense continued to look hapless in a 4-2 defeat against the Cardinals (11-8) on Friday night. The Reds have now scored two […]

The post-Price era begins today. What should’ve been a routine off-day in the middle of April turned into quite the eventful ordeal yesterday, as the Reds (3-15) fired manager Bryan Price and pitching coach Mack Jenkins after an abysmal start to the season. Today will mark the first game with former bench coach Jim Riggleman […]

Sal Romano has the fastball velocity. He has a nice breaking ball to work with, as well. Neither of them are elite pitches, but they give the right-hander a solid foundation to work from. Two-pitch starting pitchers without dominant stuff are rare for a reason, however: it’s hard to keep hitters guessing when they have […]

Two years ago, Amir Garrett was the Reds’ minor league pitcher of the year. His prospect stock hit an all-time high, and he was one of the organization’s most promising arms among a sea of talent. Flash forward to today and the 6-foot-5 left-hander has arguably never looked better on the mound. Yet, he’s not in […]
