The Reds have signed 21 of the 41 players that they selected in the draft. These players will mostly stock the three Reds Rookie level teams in the US which begin play over the next week. The Billings Mustangs will kick off Rookie level play for the Reds tomorrow. The Rookie Billings Mustangs begin play […]

I can only hope that Reds have removed Jesse Winker from the outfield rotation in an attempt to showcase the other three OFs for some trade deadline moves. I would hope they would send him down to Louisville to continue to get playing time while they are doing so. It’s imperative that the Reds make […]

The Reds recalled IF/OF Brandon Dixon who was hitting .326/.371/.527/.899 at AAA Louisville. The 26 year old utility man lead the Bats with 12 2B, 14 RBI, 8 SB, and 38 SO. Dixon is very versatile as he can play 1B/2B/3B/LF/RF and provides good RH power from the bench. The Reds have also recalled RH […]

The Reds recently released OF Tyler Goeddel who was hitting .229/.326/.349/.676 at AAA Louisville. The 25 year old hit .277/.352/.361/.713 for the Bats last season. The Reds also released RH RP Ben Rowen who had a 9.28 ERA over 10.2 IP for the Bats this season. The 29 year old reliever was signed to a […]

I was able to catch the Dayton Dragons on their far western swing in the Midwest League when they took on the Burlington Bees last week. This Dayton team — the Reds Class-A affiliate — has talent, but they’re streaky. They won nine games in a row at one point. Then they lost 8 in […]

Last night, I was in attendance for Robert Stephenson’s start in Louisville. In the first inning, Stephenson hit Edwin Espinal in the face, breaking his jaw. He also hit the first batter of the second inning and things got very tense for a while. And yet, he went 6 innings on 88 pitches, allowing 1 […]

The Reds trade of C Devin Mesoraco for RH SP Matt Harvey wasn’t the only move in the Reds organization the last few days. The following are a several additional notable moves the Reds made recently down on the farm. 2B Dilson Herrera was recently promoted to the AAA Louisville Bats from the A+ Daytona […]

The Reds made several interesting roster moves late last week. To make room on the roster for IF Eugenio Suarez and RP David Hernandez, who were returning from the DL, they optioned OF Phillip Ervin, IF Cliff Pennington, and IF Phil Gosselin to AAA Louisville. Then in a surprising move, the Reds also recalled OF/IF […]

At the top of the 2018 season, the Reds had four prospects in MLB.com’s Top 100 — Nick Senzel, Hunter Greene, Taylor Trammel, and Tyler Mahle. On its face, that’s a strong system. I mean a top 10, three top 50, and four total premier prospects: What is there to complain about? But then consider […]

In what was definitely not a major league game, Cincinnati’s top prospect Nick Senzel was injured this afternoon. This injury occurred in Toledo, not Minneapolis. #Reds top prospect Nick Senzel may have injured himself diving for a ground ball. He is leaving @Louisville's game against @MudHens after rolling on his wrist. — John Wagner (@jwagnerblade) […]

The Reds soon need to start making some tough decisions as Eugenio Suarez and David Hernandez return from the DL. Suarez will return to the club and take over 3B where Alex Blandino has been getting the bulk of playing time the last few games. Blandino has also been on a hot streak of late […]
