The Reds also released RH RP Ben Rowen who had a 9.28 ERA over 10.2 IP for the Bats this season. The 29 year old reliever was signed to a […]

I was able to catch the Dayton Dragons on their far western swing in the Midwest League when they took on the Burlington Bees last week. This Dayton team — the Reds Class-A affiliate — has talent, but they’re streaky. They won nine games in a row at one point. Then they lost 8 in […]

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 […]

The Reds made several interesting roster moves late last week. To make room on the roster for IF Eugenio Suarez and RP David Hernandez, who were returning from the DL, they optioned OF Phillip Ervin, IF Cliff Pennington, and IF Phil Gosselin to AAA Louisville. Then in a surprising move, the Reds also recalled OF/IF […]

The Reds soon need to start making some tough decisions as Eugenio Suarez and David Hernandez return from the DL. Suarez will return to the club and take over 3B where Alex Blandino has been getting the bulk of playing time the last few games. Blandino has also been on a hot streak of late […]

The Reds traded RHP Ariel Hernandez to Los Angeles Dodgers for RHP Zach Neal and 1B Ibandel Isabel. Hernadez had been DFA to make 40 man roster space to enable the Reds to promote Dylan Floro to the big league bullpen. Hernandez has great stuff but has long battled command issues as shown by his […]

We’re a week into the Minor League full season team’s schedule. The Major League Reds can’t seem to win a game these days. Let’s see how their minor league teams are faring thus far.   AAA Louisville Bats The Bats had a 3 – 3 record and in 3rd out of 4 in the International […]

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 […]

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 […]
