Two years ago, Amir Garrett was the Reds’ minor league pitcher of the year. His prospect stock hit an all-time high, and he was one of the organization’s most promising arms among a sea of talent. Flash forward to today and the 6-foot-5 left-hander has arguably never looked better on the mound. Yet, he’s not in […]

The long, hard winter is over. Baseball is back. This is a fun time of year — for most of us, at least. If you’ve been a loyal reader of Redleg Nation over the years, you probably know that I’m generally pretty optimistic about the state of the Reds. This off-season, I confess to having […]

Since the 2017 season mercifully ended for the Cincinnati Reds, I’ve had this sticky thought that keeps popping into my head. It’s an image I have of a competitive Reds team in 2018, a contender for the Wild Card, and it requires just three simple moves by club management: 1. Insert Jesse Winker into the […]

This week’s respondents are Nick Doran, Nick Carrington, the inimitable Mary Beth Ellis, and Chad Dotson. Our Daily Reds Obsession: Which 5 pitchers will start the most games for the 2018 Reds? Nick D: Well I wish Luis Castillo could start them all, but this isn’t like 1869 when one pitcher was all you needed, […]

The Astros and Cubs — two teams still wearing their uniforms — did it. So will the Reds. It’s when we’ll know for sure that the rebuilding is finally over. Or at least when the Reds front office thinks that moment has arrived. We’ll see those final roster moves. Dick Williams will package a group […]

Narratives separated by eight months: February 2017: The Reds finished 68-94 last season, fifth place in the National League Central division. The club’s starting rotation enters 2017 with considerable uncertainty: (1) veteran pitcher who didn’t pitch until June, but who started every turn afterward; (2) quality veteran who was injured last season, hopes to return […]

The regular season is over, and the focus will now shift to the playoffs and debating which players are worthy of MVPs, Cy Youngs, and numerous other awards. Since the Reds didn’t make the postseason, we’ll skip right to the latter. A 68-94 record for a second straight year doesn’t bring much to celebrate, but […]

With the Reds looking up from the bottom of the NL Central standings, fans have spent much of the 2017 season speculating not about the postseason, but about which players would be dealt at the trade deadline. It seemed to be a foregone conclusion that the team would part ways with Zack Cozart, and pitchers […]

Announced by Reds manager Bryan Price after Friday night’s game: Tyler Mahle will make his major league debut against the Pirates on Sunday afternoon. RHP Tyler Mahle will be called up from the Triple-A @LouisvilleBats to start against the Pirates on Sunday at GABP. #Reds — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) August 26, 2017 This is […]

With the series win, the Reds have achieved non-contender payback for Atlanta taking two out of three at GABP in early June. The Reds are 5-4 on the road trip and have a three-game winning streak. They go for the sweep tomorrow afternoon on Luis Castillo Day. Welcome back Scott Schebler! The Reds right fielder made […]

This was submitted by Joe Rettig, a long-time reader and supporter of Redleg Nation. You may recall Joe’s report earlier this season about his visit to Busch Stadium in St. Louis. This time, it’s Miller Park in Milwaukee. Thanks, Joe! The rubber match between the Reds and Brewers didn’t go the Reds way on Sunday. […]

As reported by C. Trent Rosecrans, outfielder Scott Schebler has been activated from the disabled list. He’ll take the roster spot of pitcher Scott Feldman, who was placed on the 10-day DL. #Reds activate Scott Schebler from the DL, put Scott Feldman on the DL — C.
