Following yesterday’s strange news that Matt Harvey wouldn’t be traded, the even more concerning news that Bob Castellini had once again stuck his nose into baseball operations, and a crushing walk-off defeat to the Cubs (74-53), the Reds (56-73) could really use a win to lift the collective spirit of the fanbase again. Fortunately, the […]

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 four full season minor league teams open play two weeks from now. The AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos, A+ Daytona Tortugas, and A Dayton Dragons all begin play on Thursday, April 5th. The AAA Louisville Bats start their season the following day on Friday, April 6th. I figured it would be best to not […]

In the days leading up to Opening Day, we’ll be previewing The State Of The Reds at every single position on the field. Check out the previous installments of our Redleg Nation 2018 Season Preview series: —Catcher —Second Base —Third Base —Shortstop —Center Field —Bullpen Heading into the offseason, the Reds outfield appeared to be ripe for […]

It’s playoff time, so things are kinda quiet in RedsLand. Sure, we can root for some former Reds, but you may have noticed that no current Cincinnati Reds are participating in the Major League Baseball post-season. Did you notice that? While we’re waiting for the Magical Cincinnati Wild Card Season of 2018, there will be […]

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 […]

It’s hard to believe that there is just about three weeks remaining in the regular season for the Reds minor league teams. We’ll be keeping any eye out to see who the Reds might recall for reinforcements when the rosters expand come the first of September. Let’s check out what is going on down on […]

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 […]

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 […]

Acquired at the trade deadline from the San Francisco Giants on July 31, 2015 (along with right-handed pitcher Keury Mella) in a trade for pitcher Mike Leake, Louisville native and former Louisville Cardinal Adam Duvall spent most all of 2016 entrenched as the Reds everyday left fielder and clean-up hitter.  Add to that an All Star selection, […]

The first month of the season has passed and there is nobody at AAA beating down the door to be promoted to the majors.  Jesse Winker’s high AVG and OBP could sorely be used at the top of the Reds lineup but with Duvall and Schebler hitting well ahead of him, he’s going to have […]
