The Reds have signed IF Taylor Featherston to a minor league contract and assigned him to the AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos. The 28 year old has hit .160/.221/.256/.477 in 244 PA in the big leagues from 2015 – 2017 with three different organizations (Angels, Phillies, and Rays). In the upper minors he has hit .260/.322/.439/.760 […]

Today is Minor League Baseball Opening Day. The AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos, A+ Daytona Tortugas, and A Dayton Dragons all begin play today. The AAA Louisville Bats start their season tomorrow. All four of these teams have released their opening day rosters. Let’s take a look at each team’s roster to see where the Red’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

I know, the Reds losing is pretty painful. But they are now on pace for a 68 -94 record for the season. This would currently be good for 4th place in next year’s draft. There are 5 other teams within 4 games of the Reds however, so they’re going to need to step it up […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
