The minor league seasons are beginning to wrap up with three of the Reds Rookie level teams, (Greeneville Reds, AZL Reds, and DSL Reds) having already seen their seasons come to an end. The regular season ends for the remaining five teams next week. The AAA Louisville and A Dayton team’s season will end after […]

The big news today will be if we find out who placed waiver claims on Matt Harvey and Billy Hamilton and if the Reds will be able to work out deals with those teams. A trade for either player should bring back some interesting farm pieces for us to keep an eye on. Now let’s […]

For years, I’ve followed both Jonah Keri’s and Fangraphs’ versions of establishing top-50 MLB Trade Value lists. Both annual rankings seek to provide an idea of how the baseball industry values its players, creating a sort of “absolute value” for what players could fetch on the open market. It’s a delicate balance of friendly contracts, […]

OF Taylor Trammell (.276/.371/.406/.777 at A+ Daytona) has become the third top Reds prospect to find his way to the DL. Trammell has been placed on the Daytona Tortugas DL with concussion symptoms. He was removed from Tuesday nights game after crashing into the OF wall. Top Reds prospects IF Nick Senzel (surgery for a […]

Hunter Greene gets most of the hype among Reds pitching prospects. Robert Stephenson and Cody Reed are the big names vying for chances in Triple-A. But down in Double-A Pensacola, Tony Santillan is quietly having a breakthrough season. In the process, he’s becoming someone who could conceivably contribute to the big-league club as soon as […]

The Reds made only one move before the July 31st trade deadline. They acquired OF Preston Tucker (1 for 4 with Reds thus far), SP Matt Wisler (He went 5 IP allowing 1 R, 5 H, and 0 BB with 5 SO in his first start with the AAA Bats.) and SP Lucas Sims (Has […]

The consensus among both those who run and follow the Reds seems nearly unanimous. The Reds can be playoff contenders as soon as 2019 if the team can make a significant improvement to the starting pitching rotation.┬áReds President of Baseball Operations Dick Williams has publicly declared he is looking to upgrade his starting pitching and […]

With the Reds playing better baseball over the last two months (the weekend series against the Pirates notwithstanding), there’s been more talk of seriously competing in 2019. The team, of course, still has a few missing pieces to the puzzle to find before that can happen, though — primarily finding a rotation of reliable starting […]

The Reds appear to be nearing a pivotal point in the rebuild process. It’s time to strap in and see how they will assemble the final pieces of the this complicated puzzle we call the Reds next winning baseball team. Let’s hope they knock it out of the park. Now let’s see what is going […]

With the trade deadline looming and the Reds being rumored to be in the mix for making some deals, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to see them do. Not so much as to which players are dealt and which ones are coming back, but more so, what is the plan and intent behind […]

The Reds traded 27 year old RHP Dylan Floro, 29 year old RHP Zach Neal, and International signing money to the Los Angeles Dodgers for 19 year old RHP James Marinan and 21 year old RHP Aneurys Zabala. This was a deal in which the Reds bought low and sold high with Dylan Floro to […]

The Reds now have a full slate of minor league teams in action with their four Rookie league teams starting action over the last few weeks. This week we’ll begin covering these teams as well. The loss of Nick Senzel thins out the glut of 2B prospects a bit in the near future. We’ll have […]
