The minor league regular seasons are all wrapped up except for Billings who plays their regular season finale today. The Reds have three farm teams competing in post season competition. The AA Pensacola team qualified for the playoffs by clinching a 2nd half wild card spot. Last night they dropped the first game of a […]

The Reds traded RHP Ariel Hernandez to Los Angeles Dodgers for RHP Zach Neal and 1B Ibandel Isabel. Hernadez had been DFA to make 40 man roster space to enable the Reds to promote Dylan Floro to the big league bullpen. Hernandez has great stuff but has long battled command issues as shown by his […]

Should Nick Senzel be developed as a shortstop? Or a third baseman? Or a second baseman? That question has been on the minds of Reds management for weeks. Senzel’s best position is third base, but that spot belongs to Eugenio Suarez, he of the seven-year contract extension. In the press conference announcing Suarez’s new contract, […]

The Reds sweep the Brewers who are a team in the playoff hunt. That’s nice, but it’s not helping the Reds outlook in next years draft. They are now on pace for a 70 -92 record for the season. This would currently be good for the 7th spot in next year’s draft. They’re going to […]

With the ill timed injuries to Scott Feldman and Zack Cozart, the Reds are pretty much standing on the sidelines this year watching the other teams being active as we approach this years trade deadline.  Meanwhile, the Reds are currently in line for the 4th overall pick in the baseball draft next June.  At least […]

The All-Star break is right around the corner. It will be very interesting to see what kind of moves, if any, that Dick Williams is able to pull off before the trading deadline at the end of the month. Hopefully any moves made will open up a spot for the likes of OF Jesse Winker […]

Luis Castillo (3.38 ERA) had his second good start in a row for the Reds. RH RP Kevin Shackelford has joined the Reds and looks to make his MLB debut after posting a 1.53 ERA for the Louisville Bats. We now have a full slate of minor league teams playing, so let’s jump right in […]

As the 2017 season approaches the 1/3 mark, the Reds rebuilding process appears to be moving along very well except for the very important area of starting pitching. Unfortunately the starting pitching is in such a sorry state that it is difficult to project it advancing to even league average standards prior to 2019 at the […]

It was disappointing news for many in Redleg Nation this week when Cuban 19-year-old phenom Luis Robert signed with the White Sox for a $26-million signing bonus. Despite the Reds losing out on what might be the last big-money Cuban signee, there is some positive news on the Cubans Cincinnati signed last year. Shortstop Alfredo […]

We are now just about a third of the way through the schedule for the full season minor league teams.  The MLB draft is just two and half weeks away and the Reds again have the 2nd overall pick.  The Reds two Rookie league teams will begin play the week after the draft.  We might […]

The Reds B-team made the trip this afternoon to Camelback Ranch to play the Chicago White Sox. The Camelback Ranch facility is gorgeous and shared by the White Sox and Dodgers and about 20 minutes north of Goodyear Ballpark. In a welcome development, last night’s storm that shortened the game with the Cubs brought much […]
