If you posed the question of “who is on the 40-man roster today that won’t be in November?” at the end of June, outfielder Aristides Aquino had to be in the conversation – and probably near the top of the list. In the 65 games between the start of the year and the end of […]

Every month I track the distances for as many home runs as I can on the farm. You can see the latest version, which looks at the second half of July by clicking here. I use trackman data when available, and video when it’s not (and the video IS available). In total this season I’ve […]

There’s been a lot of talk lately that the Cincinnati Reds are too slow to promote their prospects up levels. It’s something that I’ve heard many times in the past, but seems to really have caught traction on the social media platform of choice in the last year or so. Perhaps some of that is […]

The last time that we actually had one of these topics here at Redleg Nation it was nearly two months ago. I figured that today would be a good day to bring it back into the fold. I’m willing to take any question you have and I’ll do my best to give a complete answer […]

Hello boys (and girls), I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Last week instead of writing about the minor leagues here at Redleg Nation, I was hanging out in Tennessee watching the Greeneville Reds with Chad Dotson. But, I’m back at things this week and there are some things worth covering. The first, and at least for me, the most […]

Last week bad news hit the Cincinnati Reds organization when Nick Senzel tore a tendon in his finger that would require surgery and end his 2018 season. It was a tough blow for both Senzel, and for the Reds organization. You never want to see injuries happen. But sometimes when they do, it opens up […]

The midway point of the minor league season is upon us, at least for the full-season teams. That means it’s the perfect time to look back and see who should be on a fake Cincinnati Reds minor league All-Star team. Catcher: Hendrik Clementina There isn’t much up for debate at the catcher position. Hendrik Clementina […]

When Nick Senzel hit the disabled list at the beginning of May with another bout of vertigo, it was blow to the psyche of what little hope the Reds fanbase had to look forward to. After spending nearly four weeks on the disabled list, he returned to the lineup in Triple-A on May 29th. Senzel […]

The last time that we actually had one of these topics here at Redleg Nation it was spring training and there were still three weeks before the minor league season would begin. We are now nearly two months into the minor league season and the draft is next week. It seems like a great time […]

Jeter Downs was the Reds collective balance 1st round pick in the 2017 draft. He went out to Billings in his first foray into professional baseball last season. Things went well for the teenager, hitting .267/.370/.424 with 27 walks and 32 strikeouts in 50 games. This season the Reds sent Downs to Dayton for his […]

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, […]
