The Reds come out of the All Star Break still mired in rebuild limbo on the offensive side of the board.  Hopefully they will be able to make some deals to move veteran players to open up spots for the likes of Jose Peraza, Scott Schebler, and Jesse Winker.  Let’s check in on the action […]

With All-Star Game coming up next week, the trading deadline is right around the corner.  It will be interesting to see if the Reds are able to make any moves and what the return from them will be.  Hopefully they will bring some more good young talent our way to stock the farm.  With that, […]

Daniel Wright (IL Pitcher of the Week last week.), Josh Smith, A.J. Morris, and Dayan Diaz get their turn to pitch for the big league club this week.  Why not, nobody else can get the job done.  Let’s see what is going on down on the farm so we’ll at least know the names of […]

This week it is Drew Hayes and Layne Somsen shipped out to Louisville and Jumbo Diaz and Keyvius Sampson brought back to Cincinnati for a second try at helping out the struggling bullpen.  Good luck with that.  The bullpen is not likely to get any help until we get back our injured pitchers (Bailey, DeSclafani, […]

We are now nearly a quarter of the way into the minor league full season schedule.  Time to check in on the Reds prospects around the minors to see they are faring. AAA Louisville Bats The Bats have a 19-13 record and are in 2nd place in the International League West. The International League hitters […]

The pitching reinforcements are just about ready to arrive.  It may be just in time as recent rotation addition Jon Moscot (4.02 ERA) reported soreness in his non-pitching shoulder in last night’s start.  With Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani, and John Lamb all nearing the end of their rehab assignments there could be some upcoming roster […]

With or without rehabbing Reds pitchers Anthony DeSclafani and Homer Bailey, Pensacola manager Pat Kelly feels there is major league talent on the Blue Wahoos roster. “I’ve got five major league players pitching for me, as far as I’m concerned,” Kelly said after Tuesday’s game. “We had seven, but I’ll take my five and go […]

Robert Stephenson got the call up to the big leagues again for another spot start and turned in a very nice performance.  Stephenson was immediately sent back down to AAA Louisville to stop his service time and arbitration clocks from ticking any further.  RH RP Drew Hayes got the call up to take Stephenson’s 25 […]

It’s a week into the minor league season so today we’ll be able to see who started out hot and who started out cold.  I’ll also try to note if there are any indications on what position players are starting out at in cases where there may have been questions concerning a player to start […]

The Reds are off to a 2-0 start and some recent farm hands are working hard to prove themselves at the major league level.  Rookie LF Scott Schebler was the hero for the Reds in the game last night with a game winning double in the bottom of the ninth.  Today, rookie SP Robert Stephenson […]

In this year’s first installment of “This Week on the Farm”, I’d like to take a quick look at what the Reds top two farm clubs rosters might look like opening day.  The rosters of these two farm clubs will contain the players that have the best chance of helping out at the Major League […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Warren Leeman, otherwise known as Shchi Cossack. Thanks Cossack!] By my count from the Old Recliner, the Reds now have 38 players on the 40-man roster, so there is room to add players and make starting rotation moves necessary to begin the season.  Bryan Price previously identified […]
