The Reds (50-65) will undoubtedly be glad to return home this evening after a rough nine-game road trip that saw them go 2-7. Optimism has dwindled lately in Redsland after riding into the All-Star break on a high note, particularly when it comes to the starting rotation. The group made some strides from May onward […]

For years, I’ve followed both Jonah Keri’s and Fangraphs’ versions of establishing top-50 MLB Trade Value lists. Both annual rankings seek to provide an idea of how the baseball industry values its players, creating a sort of “absolute value” for what players could fetch on the open market.

Tonight’s game is rained out. Day-night double-header tomorrow. Still processing the terrible, horrible, no good news about Hunter Greene’s frayed right ulnar collateral ligament. Doesn’t always mean surgery. Anthony DeSclafani and Michael Lorenzen are clear and present examples where rehab alone was enough. But the injury often does require surgery, eventually. The kind named after […]
