I can only hope that Reds have removed Jesse Winker from the outfield rotation in an attempt to showcase the other three OFs for some trade deadline moves. I would hope they would send him down to Louisville to continue to get playing time while they are doing so. It’s imperative that the Reds make […]

The Reds recalled IF/OF Brandon Dixon who was hitting .326/.371/.527/.899 at AAA Louisville. The 26 year old utility man lead the Bats with 12 2B, 14 RBI, 8 SB, and 38 SO. Dixon is very versatile as he can play 1B/2B/3B/LF/RF and provides good RH power from the bench. The Reds have also recalled RH […]

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 […]

If you are only following my work here at Redleg Nation, you’re missing out. While I love Redleg Nation and the crew we have here, every single day I’m writing about the Cincinnati Reds farm system over at RedsMinorLeagues.com. While I was out in Goodyear covering the minor league side of spring training, I had […]

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 […]
