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 […]

Check out the previous installments of our Redleg Nation 2018 Season Preview series: —Shortstop —Second Base With the responsibility of managing an entire pitching staff, framing pitches, and throwing out runners while maintaining productivity […]

Recently, I wrote about Tucker Barnhart and how he is an interesting asset for the Reds. The colleague he has split most of the catching duties with, Devin Mesoraco, remains a large unknown due to injuries and missed time. Much has been discussed about Mesoraco and his comeback, as well as Wesley Jenkins proposing trading […]

Devin Mesoraco recently began his rehab assignment in Louisville, going 1-4 with a grand slam, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts in his first game. With Mesoraco succumbing to another injury half-way through his comeback campaign, who knows how long he will be able to hold up and stay on the active roster. Even though it […]

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 […]

Yesterday, the Reds played a night game and the minor league games were at 1 p.m. so I was able to catch both. Usually, both the major and minor league games are at 1 pm. It was hot, hot, hot in Goodyear yesterday, a climate shock compared to Ohio. It was especially sweltering in the […]

Welcome to Wild Speculation about the Future of the Baseball Men of Cincinnati. Today, in my infinite wisdom, I have decide to predict and discuss what I think is the most likely starting lineup for the Reds on Opening Day in 2018 and after the All-Star break that year. Let’s take a look and then, […]

Man, this off-season seems longer than most. There’s nothing going on…and that’s probably the best thing for this organization, or so I’m trying to believe. Either way, it’s unfortunate for a group of devoted writers who like to publish words about the Cincinnati Reds (I’m talking about Redleg Nation here). The club isn’t giving us much to […]
