There have been numerous pitchers with sweeping breaking balls and blazing fastballs throughout baseball history. For those who love watching nasty pitching, there’s arguably no better time to be a fan of the game than now. Twenty different players have hit 100 mph on the radar gun this year (including the Reds’ own Tanner Rainey), […]

After an uninspiring loss on Saturday, the Reds (25-45) are back at it again on Father’s Day to try salvaging one win from their three-game series against the Pirates (35-35). First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. ET in PNC Park. Starting Pitchers Name IP ERA xFIP K% BB% Anthony DeSclafani 10.0 5.40 3.40 24.4% […]

Football is often called a “game of inches,” and last night, we all saw how baseball can be, too. Although the Reds (25-44) had plenty of chances to score more than two runs, they were still on the verge of tying the game in the ninth inning with Billy Hamilton on second base and Joey […]

After only two games played so far this week, the Reds (25-43) will be back on your TV or radio all weekend long. They head to Pittsburgh for the next three days to face a Pirates team heading in the opposite direction. While the Reds have won their last three games, the Pirates (33-35) have […]

It’s become a cliche, but the sentiment still holds true: the best pitch in baseball is a well-located fastball. Overwhelmingly, the most commonly thrown pitch in the game is the fastball — whether it’s a four-seamer, cutter, or sinker — and it has been since the sport was invented. But as more data becomes available, […]

Among a poor overall pitching staff in 2017, Luis Castillo was one of the few bright spots. He pitched so well, in fact, that it was easy to forget he was a rookie who’d never even pitched in Triple-A. With his 97-mph fastball (on average) and wicked secondary pitches, the sky was seemingly the limit for […]

Last night’s opener in Denver went like many games have for the Reds (18-34) in years past. Although they jumped out to an early 4-1 lead, they couldn’t hold onto the advantage, ultimately losing 5-4 to drop their all-time record in Coors Field to 40-60. They’ll look to get back in the win column against […]

After a rare successful visit to the West Coast earlier in the month, the Reds (18-33) are heading back for a six-game road trip starting this weekend. The first stop is Denver, where they’ll take on the Rockies (26-24), the leaders in the NL West, tonight at 8:40 p.m. ET. Starting Pitchers Name IP ERA […]

Yesterday was a long, tumultuous day for baseball, but the Reds (16-31) ultimately came out with a 1-1 record despite being outscored 14-5 by the Cubs (24-19). Cincinnati will hope to come away with a series split when their fourth game in three days starts at 1:10 p.m. ET. Starting Pitchers Name IP ERA xFIP […]

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, […]
