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 […]

The Reds pitching staff has been largely terrible in 2016. A whopping 31 pitchers (and Tyler Holt) took the mound for the club, allowing an MLB record 251 home runs (as of Tuesday night) and posting a collective 0.0 fWAR as a group, the third-worst mark in baseball history. While the overall numbers make it look […]

The Reds are off to a 2-0 start and some recent farm hands are working hard to prove themselves at the major league level.  Rookie LF Scott Schebler was the hero for the Reds in the game last night with a game winning double in the bottom of the ninth.  Today, rookie SP Robert Stephenson […]

In this year’s first installment of “This Week on the Farm”, I’d like to take a quick look at what the Reds top two farm clubs rosters might look like opening day.  The rosters of these two farm clubs will contain the players that have the best chance of helping out at the Major League […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Warren Leeman, otherwise known as Shchi Cossack. Thanks Cossack!] By my count from the Old Recliner, the Reds now have 38 players on the 40-man roster, so there is room to add players and make starting rotation moves necessary to begin the season.  Bryan Price previously identified […]

The competition surrounding Reds’ rotation is generating most of the hubbub at camp, but with Homer Bailey and John Lamb unfit for the start of the season, a safe assumption can be made that in some order, Anthony DeSclafani, Raisel Iglesias, Michael Lorenzen, Brandon Finnegan, and Jon Moscot will occupy the five starting spots to […]

Last week I chose the best hitter this season for each team.  This week we’ll see who was the best pitcher this season for each team. AAA Louisville Bats It was hard to choose a winner here, but I’m going with Josh Smith for Bat’s best pitcher.  The 27 year old RH SP posted a […]

The Cincinnati Reds (54-77) finish the three games series and six game road trip with an afternoon game in Wrigley against the Chicago Cubs (75-56). This is the last 2015 game for the Reds in Wrigley, but surprisingly the only Reds game in Chicago with an early afternoon start time. Even the weekend games this […]

In the Reds quest to provide us with the best draft pick possible for us to follow next year, they have grabbed a firm hold on last place in the NL Central.  They now have their sites set on overtaking  Colorado (1 GB), Miami (2 GB), and Philadelphia (3 GB) to obtain the number one […]

While Walt Jocketty works from home trying to rebuild the Reds and the Reds give away every other game of a home series to the Cubs; we’ll take a look to see what’s going on down on the farm. AAA Louisville Bats Last night SP Robert Stephenson tossed 6 IP of shutout baseball allowing 2 […]
