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 […]

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 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 […]

The Reds acquired two new players last Friday. The Reds acquired Minor League outfielder Randy Ventura from the Braves on Friday in exchange for international bonus pool space. The 20 year old RF is a switch hitter who is spending his first season this year in full season A ball and is listed as 5-9 […]

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 […]

Jesse Winker, .305/.386/.391/.777, was slated to be in the AAA All Star game. It appears that his recent call up to the Reds for 2 PH appearances has caused him to not be on the squad. RH RP Kevin Shackelford, 1.85 ERA with 11 S, represented the Bats on the International league All Star team. […]

The All-Star break is right around the corner. It will be very interesting to see what kind of moves, if any, that Dick Williams is able to pull off before the trading deadline at the end of the month. Hopefully any moves made will open up a spot for the likes of OF Jesse Winker […]

Luis Castillo (3.38 ERA) had his second good start in a row for the Reds. RH RP Kevin Shackelford has joined the Reds and looks to make his MLB debut after posting a 1.53 ERA for the Louisville Bats. We now have a full slate of minor league teams playing, so let’s jump right in […]

It’s a busy week for the Reds down on the farm. There are lots of player promotions to cover. Let’s start with the players recently promoted from the farm up to the Reds. OF Jesse Winker, .317/.399/.411/.810 at AAA, got the call up to the Reds to provide an extra bat for the bench and […]
