Cincinnati Reds select IF/OF Connor Joe from Dodgers in Rule 5 Draft

They also lost RHP Taylor Grover in the minor league round.

The final real action of MLB’s annual Winter Meetings is the Rule 5 Draft, where each MLB squad with an open roster spot gets a chance to select a fringey, non-roster player from other franchises in a sort of back-handed, semi-complimentary way. Players selected in the Rule 5 Draft must remain on the selecting team’s active roster for the duration of the next season, with the team that lost the player having the rights to take...

Reds promise there's 'more to come' after Tanner Roark signing

After picking up righty Tanner Roark, Reds president of baseball ops Dick Williams promises there’s “more to come,” as Bob Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Certainly, the Cinci front office has been engaged in quite a few intriguing trade scenarios of late, according to reports. It’s still anyone’s guess which will come to fruition. The addition of Roark, after all, largely came together over the course of the last few days, according to Williams and GM Nick Krall....

What’s up, Reds - Last day of the Winter Meetings

I hope you washed your mug, ‘cause I’m gonna fill it up with my word coffee.

The Reds have been the hustlingest hustlers in Vegas this week. A number of mucky-mucks have noted just how busy the organization has been, pestering everyone from every organization and earning thinly concealed grimaces from the kind and hard-working service folks at the hotel. So many half-empty cans of Fresca and spent-up vape cartridges.

So what have they been doing this whole time? Well, the headliner is...

Cincinnati Reds acquire Tanner Roark from Nationals for Tanner Rainey

This deal is a Full House: all about the Tanners.

We’ve been following along with a lot of rumored deals involving the Cincinnati Reds since the Winter Meetings started earlier this week. So, of course the Reds come off the top rope this evening with a trade announcement that was on absolutely nobody’s radar.

Report: Reds interested in J.T. Realmuto

Yet another suitor has emerged for J.T. Realmuto, as SiriusXM’s Craig Mish (Twitter link) reports that the Reds “have jumped into” talks for the Marlins catcher. It isn’t a new interest, however, as the Miami Herald’s Clark Spencer hears that Cincinnati has been interested in Realmuto “for a while.” Current Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart and outfield prospect Taylor Trammell have been mentioned as possible candidates to go back to Miami in the deal, according to Fancred Sports’...

Report: Reds now involved in J.T. Realmuto talks

The Cincinnati Reds have joined roughly half of MLB teams in showing interest in All-Star Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto, according to insider Craig Mish. Given that most believe the Reds’ focus should be on starting pitcher this winter, this is an interesting development. But it does show the team’s belief that it can contend this coming season. According to Mish, No. 2 prospect Taylor Trammell would likely head to Miami in any trade involving Cincinnati landing Realmuto. One of...

Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto on Reds trade radar. Tradar, if you will.

The Doppler has picked up a big fish. Sorry.

The last three seasons have seen Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto establish himself as one of the absolute elite catchers in all of baseball. He’s hit .286/.338/.454 in 1655 PA in that time - good for an impressive 118 OPS+ - and has done so while playing most of his games in a cavernous home park. That has certainly been exemplified by his home/road splits, as he posted a road OPS nearly 100 points higher in 2018 one year after posting an...

Reds have moved to the fore of offseason's hot stove

With news that the team is contemplating a rare foray into the big-game portion of the offseason’s free agent market, and Tuesday’s reports that the club is interested in acquiring Dodger outfielder Yasiel Puig, the Reds have moved to the fore of the offseason’s hot stove. As The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans details, it’s a unique position for a team that’s spent the last four years in the cellar of the NL Central. The Reds, to no one’s surprise, are said to be pursuing a...

Reds president acknowledges team's trade talks with Dodgers

Reds president Dick Williams acknowledged on Tuesday that his team has had trade talks with the Dodgers, though he added that no deal is close, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com tweets. “We’ve had conversations with the Dodgers and there have been a variety of permutations,” Williams said. “I’m not going to get into what we’ve talked about.” Reds right-hander Homer Bailey and Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig have reportedly been among the names bandied about in those discussions....

Reds reportedly considering Puig, Inciarte

Reds executives have been reaching out to many clubs and agents to potentially make acquisitions during the Winter Meetings. On Tuesday, two of the names of players on Cincinnati's radar appeared to be Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers and Ender Inciarte from the Braves.

Reds talking to Dodgers about some expensive players

The Reds and the Dodgers are discussing some deals that would see the Reds taking on some high-salary players to help the Dodgers free up space for bigger things, according to yaboy Ken Rosenthal. https://twitter.com/ken_rosenthal/status/1072620911201800192?s=21 I’m writing this on my phone, so please forgive the jank formatting. This would be a neat move for the Reds, who have rarely (if ever) played the role of a team willing to take on big salaries. Rosy specifically mentions Alex Wood...

Puig OUR friend?

The Reds and the Dodgers are discussing some deals that would see the Reds taking on some high-salary players to help the Dodgers free up space for bigger things, according to yaboy Ken Rosenthal.

#Dodgers, #Reds have talked multiple times, sources tell The Athletic. Different packages being discussed; Puig in play as well as other LAD outfielders, pitchers. Dodgers want to clear money for other pursuits. Puig projected $11.3M in arb, per @mlbtraderumors, Alex Wood $9M.

Report: Dodgers, Reds discussing Yasiel Puig trade

The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to clear money. That could mean that Yasiel Puig has played his final game with the team. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers have been in talks with the Cincinnati Reds about a number of trades. Puig’s name has been discussed. With Manny Machado and Bryce Harper still available, it’s not surprising that the Dodgers are looking to clear money. Los Angeles is an ideal trade partner for Cincinnati, though not necessarily because of Puig. The Dodgers...

Cincinnati Reds trade target - Boston Red Sox CF Jackie Bradley Jr.

If the World Series champs trim payroll, could Bradley Jr. be had by Cincinnati?

While the bulk of the Cincinnati Reds Hot Stove talk has centered around their efforts to get the pitching - and rightfully so - there’s currently a Billy Hamilton sized hole on the outfield ledger of their roster, too. One could also certainly argue that even while they had Hamilton around there was a rather large outfield void, too, at least on the offensive side of the ball.

So far, the lone real rumor...

Reds pursuing Cleveland’s Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer

Could Cincinnati land one of Cleveland’s aces?

To date, MLB’s Winter Meetings have been light on rumor and even lighter on substance, with a minor trade of Ivan Nova from Pittsburgh to the Chicago White Sox the lone real action we’ve seen thus far. One thing does remain certain, however - the Cincinnati Reds sure seem to be asking about a lot of pitching, with presumptive hopes that they might, might actually ‘get’ it before the 2019 season rolls around.

Their latest focus, if the...

Bell: Senzel's versatility key to reaching Majors

One of the big questions for the Reds this offseason is where they will find room for top prospect Nick Senzel on the big league roster. When Reds manager David Bell met Senzel recently during Redsfest, he learned quickly how eager Senzel was to make the team.
