During the early part of this season, the Reds have reminded me of another Reds team from not long ago: the 2009 team. Why 2009? The Reds finished 78-84, 4th in the NL Central that season, but it was the year before the magical 2010 division championship. The Reds had a number of prospects who […]

Doug Gray has all the details, but twenty Reds minor leaguers elected to file for minor league free agency today. Among them were a few guys who have gotten some time in the big leagues with the Reds, such as Kyle Waldrop and Donald Lutz. To be eligible for minor league free agency, a player […]

We’ve got about 4 weeks left in the Minor League season and 3 weeks until the Major League rosters can expand for September call ups.  Hopefully service time issues won’t affect who we’ll get to see called up.  Getting to see some of these prospects we’ve been hearing and reading about is about all we […]

While Walt Jocketty works from home trying to rebuild the Reds and the Reds give away every other game of a home series to the Cubs; we’ll take a look to see what’s going on down on the farm. AAA Louisville Bats Last night SP Robert Stephenson tossed 6 IP of shutout baseball allowing 2 […]

Again this week, not much going on with player movement down on the farm.  That could change with the upcoming MLB trade deadline and the Reds being rumored to be on the sellers market.  If the Reds do pull the trigger on some deals it would most likely bring us some new prospects to follow […]

There was not much player movement this week down on the farm, but we’ll check in with a few select players and see how they are faring. AAA Louisville Bats OF Brennan Boesch didn’t take long to get his stroke back after being sent down to AAA.  Boesch is slashing .389/.488/.444/.933 in 10 G and […]

Both of the Red’s Rookie level teams started action last week, so for the first time this season we have a full slate of teams to talk about.  There have also been several recent moves made to add some depth to the Reds two top minor league teams.  Let’s see what’s going on down on […]

The Reds played two, split squad games on Monday afternoon in Arizona. Juan Duran hit a 3-run walk-off home run with 1 out in the 9th inning, to lift the Reds to a 7-5 win over the Angels. In the other game, David Holmberg pitched three scoreless innings, as the Reds and Rockies ended in […]

Mesa, Arizona hosted the largest crowd for a Cactus League game in history on Friday when 15,331 showed up to see the Reds beat the Cubs 5-2 and improve their March record to 2-2.

I’m going to take a look at the Reds top level minor league depth at seasons end.  The last three weeks I covered the pitchers, catchers, and infielders.  Now I’ll take a look at the outfielders.  This is more of a who is closest to helping in the majors type of ranking rather than who […]

Time once again to check out what is going on down on the farm. AAA Louisville Bats The Reds have released OF Ryan LaMarre to make room on the 40 man roster for Cuban P Raisel Iglesias who was assigned to the AZL Reds.  LaMarre is a 25 year of CF who was a 2nd […]
