Reds Trade Rumors: Johnny Cueto Very Much In Play

With one of the most dominant starts in all of baseball this season, Cincinnati Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto eased concerns from major league clubs interested in acquiring his services as the trade deadline nears. On Tuesday, the 29-year-old Dominican Republic native silenced the Washington Nationals by tossing a complete game, two-hit shutout with 11 strikeouts and one walk. He threw 122 pitches in Cincinnati’s 5-0 win and retired 17 of the final 18 batters he faced. The stellar performance could have been Cueto’s last with the Reds,... 
 

Joey Votto is Healthy and off to a Blazing Start

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto struggled with injuries in a 2014 campaign that lasted just 62 games. After playing in all 162 games in 2013 and slugging 24 home runs with a .435 on-base percentage, Votto hit just six longballs with a batting line of .255/.390/.409 before injuries ended his season. Consequently, the Reds suffered, finishing 28th in the major leagues in runs scored and posting a batting line of .238/.296/.365. Household names Brayan Pena, Neftali Soto, Donald Lutz and Jack Hannahan all manned first base. The Canadian has... 
 

Tigers Acquire Alfredo Simon from Reds

The Detroit Tigers have acquired pitcher Alfredo Simon from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for shortstop Eugenio Suarez and pitching prospect Jonathan Crawford, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. It’s the second trade the Tigers have made today. Earlier they sent Rick Porcello to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. Simon, a veteran right-hander, made a career-high 32 starts for the Reds last season. Prior to that he pitched in their bullpen. In 2010, he served as the closer for the Baltimore Orioles, notching... 
 

Marlins Acquire Mat Latos from Reds

The Miami Marlins have acquired starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Cincinnati Reds reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. In exchange the Reds will receive pitcher Anthony DeSclafani and catcher Chad Wallach. It’s been a busy couple of days for the Marlins who acquired second baseman Dee Gordon from the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday night. Latos, who turned 27 earlier this week, is coming off an injury-plagued year. He made just 16 starts as an elbow injury limited him significantly. Prior to that he had posted four straight solid seasons... 
 

Reds Joey Votto Gets a Day Off, Maybe More

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto was not in the lineup today leading to speculation that he may be headed back to the disabled list with the same injury that put him there there the first time earlier this season, a left quad problem. He’s 1-for-his-last-11 and 6-for-37 over his last 11 games. In 23 games since his return from the DL, Votto is batting .250 with 11 RBIs. He hasn’t homered since May 10. “For Joey, it’s just a day off,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. According to Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports sources... 
 

Reds Jay Bruce Lands on 15 Day DL – Needs Knee Surgery

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Jay Bruce was placed on the 15 day disabled list and will require knee surgery that will sideline the 27 year old for 3-4 weeks. Bruce has hit .218/.355/.366 (99 OPS+) with only three home runs in 29 games this season. Bruce was not in the Reds starting lineup on Sunday due to soreness in the knee but apparently there was no indication surgery would be required. Bruce did pinch-hit Sunday and struck out. “I was ready to keep him out,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “He came up to me and said: ‘I... 
 

Gray, Cingrani, Paxton: Young Pitchers Impressing in 2014

Young players stole the show in 2013, and just four days into the 2014 season, several young pitchers are already making their mark. Youthful hurlers Michael Wacha, Jose Fernandez, and Chris Archer have turned in strong outings after making good showings in 2014. In addition, Sonny Gray, Tony Cingrani, and James Paxton had excellent first outings. Here’s a more in-depth look at what these three pitchers did in their first go-round in 2014. The 24 year-old Gray, a Vanderbilt product, made his mark in 2013, striking out 25.7 percent of hitters... 
 

Cincinnati Reds, Homer Bailey Agree on Extension

The Cincinnati Reds and Homer Bailey have come to terms on an extension covering six years and $105 million with a $25 million mutual option that contains a $5 million buyout, reports Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. Earlier this offseason, the two sides exchanged arbitration figures, with Bailey filing for $11.6 million, and the Reds countering at $8.7 million. The extension buys out five years of free agency for a total guarantee of $95 million. It’s comparable to the five year, $90 million free agent pact the Detroit Tigers agreed upon with... 
 

MLB News: Seven Extension Candidates Before Season Starts

With Spring Training mercifully around the corner, it’s that time of the year when teams start negotiating contract extensions. Clayton Kershaw started off the extension season with a deal that guarantees him $215 million, and the Atlanta Braves recently agreed on a lucrative deal with first baseman Freddie Freeman that will keep him under team control through his age-31 season while guaranteeing him approximately $100 million of new money. Here are some players that are good candidates for contract extensions before the season begins.  Max... 
 

Where is the Market for Nelson Cruz?

Like Kendrys Morales and Stephen Drew, Nelson Cruz‘ value has been hurt by the Qualifying Offer. At this point, it appears that all three of the above players should have accepted the one-year, $14 million deal extended to them by their teams, as their markets don’t look too strong. Each of the above players have their flaws, and most teams appear unwilling to surrender a draft pick in order to sign one of them. Early on, Cruz appeared to have a strong market, and he reportedly turned down a five year, $75 million deal from the Seattle... 
 

For Cincinnati Reds, its a New Year, New Season

For the second consecutive season, the Cincinnati Reds carried high hopes into the postseason last October. For the second consecutive season, they were dismissed from the playoffs earlier than expected. Editor’s Note: This “New Year, New Season” post on the Cincinnati Reds is part of a series where Baseball News Source columnist Jeff Louderback chronicles each Major League team as spring training draws nearer. After falling in the wild card game to Pittsburgh, the Reds fired manager Dusty Baker and replaced him with Bryan Price, the club’s... 
 

Cincinnati Reds Sign Chien-Ming Wang To Minor League Deal

The Cincinnati Reds signed righthanded pitcher Chien-Ming Wang to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training according to a news release by Wang’s agency, Octagon. Wang would earn $1.25 million upon making the major league roster and up to $3 million if he reaches all the incentives in the deal. From 2006-07, Wang had a 38-13 record, the most wins in the major leagues. While he only struck out 10.5 percent of hitters, a low walk rate and a groundball rate over 60 percent resulted in a 3.67 ERA and a 3.85 FIP. He compiled... 
 

Is Shin-Soo Choo Worth a $140 Million Deal ?

With the signing of Robinson Cano and Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo is the best hitter available in the free agent class. The 31 year-old outfielder is looking for a big deal, something in the range of seven years at $20 million per year. There are a bevy of teams that are reported to be interested in Choo, including the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers.  How much is Choo worth? Should he command a deal in the Ellsbury range? Choo is an on-base machine. He owns a career .389 OBP... 
 

Shin-Soo Choo Targeted by Yankees, Tigers and Reds

Now that Jacoby Ellsbury has signed with the New York Yankees, fellow Scott Boras client Shin-Soo Choo is the most highly regarded outfielder remaining on the free agent market. Media reports indicate that the Yankees still could pursue the 31-year-old left-handed hitter who is comfortable in right field but can also play center; however, the club is also trying to bring back R0binson Cano. Choo, who is from South Korea, had the fourth-best on-base percentage in the majors last season at .423. Add his .285 average, .885 OPS,  21 home runs, 20 stolen... 
 

Brandon Phillips May Stay With Cincinnati Reds After All

Time just has a way of mending fences and that may be what is happening with the Cincinnati Reds and second baseman Brandon Phillips.  For most of the off-season many expected the Reds to deal Phillips. For their part the Reds have had discussions with a number of teams including the New York Yankees earlier this off-season. However, none of those talks produced the deal and now the Reds may have second thoughts on moving the All-Star second baseman. Trade rumors started almost immediately after Phillips reportedly angered Reds officials by complaining... 
 

Reds Reach Agreement With Manny Parra

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports the Cincinnati Reds have reached an agreement with left-hander Manny Parra on a two-year deal worth $5.5 million. The deal calls for Parra to earn $2 million on 2014 and $3.5 million in 2015. Parra is coming off a strong 2013 when he posted a 3.33 ERA holding left-handers to a .167/.237/.238 batting line. He was used primarily as a left handed specialist in the Reds bullpen last season but that role may be modified under new manager Bryan Price. Parra began his career as a starter in the Milwaukee Brewers... 
 

Cincinnati Reds Fire Manager Dusty Baker

The Cincinnati Reds announced Friday that manager Dusty Baker will be replaced, according to sources. The news comes  three days after his team lost the National League wild-card game to Pittsburgh. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty had said in the aftermath of the 6-2 loss to Pirates Tuesday that he “thinks” Baker will be back. The 64-year-old Baker had one season left on a two-year contract he signed last October. Baker led the Reds into the playoffs three of the last four years. Cincinnati went 90-72 this season and finished... 
 

Cincinnati Reds Homer Bailey No-Hits San Francisco Giants

Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey threw his second no-hitter in the past 10 months and the first in the major leagues this season in a 3-0 when over the San Francisco Giants. Bailey (5-6) became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer. Bailey took a  perfect game into the seventh inning and walked Gregor Blanco. He would be the only Giants hitter to reach base. “Every dog has its day twice, I guess,” Bailey said. “It felt good to do it front of the Cincinnati fans.” Joey... 
 

Reds Top Prospect Robert Stephenson to DL with Hamstring Strain

In a 2013 season in which he has baffled hitters in a talent-heavy Midwest League and risen to the status as the top prospect in the Cincinnati Reds organization, Robert Stephenson has been placed on the disabled list with what is being called a strained hamstring, which he recently suffered while running in between starts. Coming into the season, Stephenson was ranked second behind outfield prospect Billy Hamilton as the top prospect in the Reds organization by both Baseball America and MLB.com; however, a lackluster season for Hamilton who has... 
 

Jonathan Broxton Placed on DL, Pedro Villarreal Called Up

The Cincinnati Reds placed setup man, Jonathan Broxton, on the DL with a right elbow flexor strain. Broxton’s stint is retroactive to June 14th  and it is unclear at this time whether he will be back by his eligible return date. With the move, the Reds’ bullpen is a little thinner for the time being but Broxton had struggled of late, likely due to the injury. Cincinnati has World Series aspirations again this season and are currently 2.5 games behind the division leading Cardinals for the top record in the National League. The Reds... 
 

Reds Tony Cingrani Called Up to Start Tuesday

The Cincinnati Reds have made it official, Tony Cingrani will be called-up from Triple-A Louisville to make his first start on Tuesday since being optioned to Louisville on May 18. In his six starts since getting his first call-up on April 18, Cingrani was solid for the Reds, posting a 2-0 record and 3.27 ERA, along with a solid 41/9 strikeout to walk ratio in 33.0 innings of work. However, whether or not his success in the big leagues would have continued is a matter of debate, as he relied heavily on one plus pitch, his fastball. A short stint... 
 

Reds Brandon Phillips to Miss 3-4 Days with Forearm Injury

The Cincinnati Reds are hoping to avoid a DL sting with second baseman, Brandon Phillips. Phillips  is hitting .296/347 with 9HR and 45 RBI. The second baseman was struck by a pitch in the forearm but is only expected to miss three to four days per manager, Dusty Baker. For Phillips, it’s his first obstacle during what has thus far been a terrific start personally. The second baseman has helped fuel the Reds to the second best record in both the NL central and Major League Baseball, trailing only the division rival St. Louis Cardinals by... 
 

Johnny Cueto Dominates Pittsburgh Pirates

Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto  allowed one hit over eight innings to cool down the  red-hot Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0. Cueto (3-0) struck out six, walked one and allowed just three balls out of the infield.  Brandon Inge provided the lone Pirates’ hit with a single to left with one out in the fifth. “He looked really good tonight, though, like the Johnny Cueto of old,” Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. “He had great stuff, great stamina and he really pitched a heck of a ballgame.” Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips hit... 
 

Dusty Baker, Johnny Cueto, Matt Garza Should All Grow the Hell Up

In Sunday afternoon’s game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds, Reds starter Johnny Cueto threw a pitch over the head of Cubs second baseman David DeJesus in the sixth inning. A warning was issued to both clubs, as tension had already commenced beginning in the fourth inning when Cubs starter Matt Garza hit Todd Frazier with a pitch. Following the game, a 5-4 victory for the Cubs in ten innings, Matt Garza expressed his disgust for Cueto’s retaliation in the sixth inning, telling clubhouse reporters: “Hopefully he learns... 
 

Joey Votto Powers His Way to NL Player of the Week

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto was given the honor of National League Player of the Week on Monday, covering games from the week of May 13 through May 19. Over the course of the past week, Votto boasted a major league best batting average of .583, while leading the NL with a .655 on-base percentage and a .917 slugging percentage that was good enough for second in the NL. Votto would also slug two home runs and drive in five runs, collecting 14 hits that were included in five multi-hit games. The highlight of Votto’s week was in a... 
 

Aroldis Chapman Blows Another Save, Phillies Win 3-2

For the second consecutive appearance, Aroldis Chapman has blown a save opportunity after converting eight straight save opportunities to start the 2013 season. Entering the game with a 2-1 Cincinnati lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the ninth-inning, Chapman issued a four-pitch walk to Delmon Young, poorly locating his fastball and changeup. Young would be replaced by pinch-runner Cliff Lee, however, Lee would be picked off in an attempt to steal second base. With one out, Philadelphia catcher Erik Kratz would step to the plate and work Chapman... 
 

Bronson Arroyo Dominates Phillies in Reds Win

Veteran right-hander Bronson Arroyo earned his fourth win of the season in a dominant pitching performance against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday afternoon, a 10-0 blowout victory for the Cincinnati Reds. Arroyo worked 7.2 innings, allowing no runs while striking out six batters with two walks. The Cincinnati starter located his pitches and showed great poise on the mound, taking command of the Philadelphia lineup by registering 22 first-pitch strikes of the 29 batters that he faced. While Arroyo held the Phillies’ hitters in line, the... 
 

Zack Cozart Catches Break, Back in the Reds’ Lineup

When Reds’ starting shortstop, Zack Cozart tried bunting only to be hit in the finger with a pitch, he thought he was going to be out awhile. The finger area is mostly just bone and it’s always dangerous to bunt for that very reason, particularly for pitchers who have to hit in the National League. For Cozart, he was just trying to lay one down in the 13th inning in a game against the Marlins. The Reds went on to win 3-2 on Saturday and Cozart was back in the lineup Monday night against the Cubs. What could have been a broken finger... 
 

Reds Power On Display With Six Homers Against Washington

Cincinnati Reds Decide Aroldis Chapman Is Closer After All

The Cincinnati Reds have decided against moving Aroldis Chapman into the rotation and the 25-year-old flamethrower will remain the closer for the team.  Mike Leake who pitched to a 4.58 ERA in 2012 will be the Reds fifth starter.  Leake was 8-9  in 2012, starting 30 games and completing 179 innings of work. The Reds signed Jonathan Broxton to a three-year $21 million deal earlier this off-season,  and the plans to move Chapman to the rotation seemed to be in place. However, the organization seemed divided on what would be the best place for... 
 

Aroldis Chapman Wants To Close and The Reds Should Let Him

The Cincinnati Reds are expected to decide in the next few days what role flame throwing Aroldis Chapman will have for the 2013 season,  a starter or the closer.  Apparently  those within the Reds organization have differing opinions. General manager Walt Jocketty and pitching coach Bryan Price have favored making Chapman a starter, while manager Dusty Baker has been considered the strongest advocate of leaving him in the bullpen. Chapman  finished the 2012 season with a 1.51 ERA and 38 saves. Chapman voiced his opinion on  what role he prefers... 
 

Cincinnati Reds: Mat Latos Agrees to Two-Year Deal – Avoids Arbitration

After joining the Reds last off-season in a trade with... 
 

Cincinnati Reds: 2013 Spring Training Preview Guide

Optimism was high last October in southwest Ohio after the Cincinnati Reds finished the regular season with 97 wins and a National League Central title. It appeared the club was headed to the NLCS after taking the first two NLDS games in San Francisco before the Giants claimed all three contests at the Great American Ballpark and dismissed the Reds from the NLDS for the second time in three years. Entering spring training, Cincinnati is well-positioned to repeat its NL Central crown, though with the rebuilding Houston Astros set to make their American... 
 

Cincinnati Reds and Mike Leake Avoid Arbitration

The Cincinnati Reds and pitcher Mike Leake reached an agreement to avoid arbitration on a one-year deal worth $3.06 million. The deal represents a compromise based on the figures submitted for arbitration. Leake had asked for $3.5 million, and the Reds submitted $2.65 million. The Reds still have three players currently slated to go through the arbitration process. Homer Bailey, Shin-Soo Choo and Mat Latos have yet to agree on a deal this offseason. Leake pitched to a 4.58 ERA over 179 innings of work in 2012 and posted at 8-9 record. Arodis... 
 

Cincinnati Reds: Should Aroldis Chapman Transition From Reliever to Starter?

The Cincinnati Reds will be the newest team to attempt the always controversial switch of a star reliever into a starter. Cuban import, Aroldis Chapman, threw over 71 innings last year and dominated the National League in the ninth inning, posting a 38 saves, a 1.51 ERA, .141 BAA and over 15K/9 with just four blown saves. This season he will take his 100 mph fastball act to the rotation, with an expected inning limit of 150 innings at most. For the Reds the move has obvious upside. Chapman has a fastball and slider on par with future Hall of Famer,... 
 

Cincinnati Reds: Top 10 Prospects For 2013

After dealing highly regarded prospects Yonder Alonso and Yasmani Grandal last offseason in the package that yielded starting pitcher Mat Latos, the Cincinnati Reds farm system lost some firepower. Yet the organization that has produced difference makers like Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Aroldis Chapman, Homer Bailey and Todd Frazier among others in recent years has some intriguing names, but none moreso than speedster Billy Hamilton. Ranked No. 10 on the Baseball News Source Top 10 Prospects List for 2013, Hamilton shattered Vince Coleman‘s single-season...
