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 —Right Field —Bullpen If there is one position that the Reds are OK […]

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 […]

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 Reds acquired two new players last Friday. The Reds acquired Minor League outfielder Randy Ventura from the Braves on Friday in exchange for international bonus pool space. The 20 year old RF is a switch hitter who is spending his first season this year in full season A ball and is listed as 5-9 […]

OF Jesse Winker, .314/.395/.408/.803 at AAA, will get an extended shot at starting in RF for the Reds to replace Scott Schebler who has been placed on the DL with a sore shoulder. The Winker call up has been long overdue in my estimation, and I must say I’m both pleased and shocked to see […]

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 […]

OF Jesse Winker, .305/.386/.391/.777 at AAA, is back in Louisville. Winker will remain there to get regular playing time while he waits for a spot to open up for him in Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Dick Williams will be entertaining offers for whatever healthy pieces he has left in an effort to improve the club before the […]

Jesse Winker, .305/.386/.391/.777, was slated to be in the AAA All Star game. It appears that his recent call up to the Reds for 2 PH appearances has caused him to not be on the squad. RH RP Kevin Shackelford, 1.85 ERA with 11 S, represented the Bats on the International league All Star team. […]

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 […]

It’s a busy week for the Reds down on the farm. There are lots of player promotions to cover. Let’s start with the players recently promoted from the farm up to the Reds. OF Jesse Winker, .317/.399/.411/.810 at AAA, got the call up to the Reds to provide an extra bat for the bench and […]
