Scooter Gennett nears return to Cincinnati Reds, but is it too late?

The Reds 2B heads out on a rehab assignment.

Fresh off of dropping 2 of 3 to the Texas Rangers at home over the weekend, the Cincinnati Reds are right back where they’ve spent the bulk of the last five seasons - last place in the National League Central. Their preponderance for losing close games repeatedly only to occasionally have their bats explode for a runaway victory has become something of a pattern, simultaneously showing us just often enough how good they can be while consistently...

Farmers Only: Aristides Aquino Drops The Hammer

Louisville Bats - One win, two losses (27-42 overall) Lucas Sims - 7.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K Sal Romano - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Jimmy Herget - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K Aristides Aquino - 4 for 11, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 1 BB Christian Colon - 3 for 9, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB Rob Refsnyder - 5 for 12, 3 2B, 2 RBI

The weekend, like much of the season was quite the bummer for the Bats. Lucas Sims puts up a great start on Friday night, and...

Reds' Scooter Gennett taking next step in recovery

Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett will begin a rehab assignment at the High-A level Monday, Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Barring setbacks, Gennett will have as many as 20 days to rehab. This has been a long-awaited development for Gennett, who hasn’t played this season as a result of a right groin strain he suffered on March 22. The injury has deprived the Reds of one of the game’s most valuable second basemen in recent years. Across 1,135 plate appearances...

Rangers at Reds, Game 3 - Preview and Lineups

Reds looking to avoid a sweep.

To all the dads out there, Red Reporter would like to wish you the warmest and happiest of Father’s Day. Hopefully you’re able to settle in and watch some winning Reds baseball with your loved ones.

Sonny Gray will take the mound today for the Reds, who are looking to avoid the sweep. This has been a pretty crappy series for the Redlegs thus far, as they got pounded on Friday and only managed three hits last night. Gray has the opportunity to turn things...

Hey look, the Reds lost another one run game

The 15th such loss of the season.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Yasiel Puig hasn’t been the player we thought he’d be this season. He’s been really bad, actually.

He is still capable of running into a pitch from time to time, and he’s still capable of hitting it a long way. That happened tonight in the bottom of the 4th inning, as Yasiel chucked his 12th dong of the season with Eugenio Suarez on base. After a three hit night last night (with a double), maybe,...

Dick Williams on the Reds’ deadline approach

The 30-37 Reds sit tied for last in the talent-rich NL Central, but the team’s white flag still hangs far from full mast, as Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer explores. President of Baseball Ops Dick Williams, who embarked on a full-scale rental shopping spree last offseason, acquiring Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood, the now-departed Matt Kemp, and Tanner Roark in win-now moves intended to revitalize a listless fanbase, explained his reasoning in a series of quotes for the piece....

Rangers at Reds, Game 2 - Preview and Lineups

A listless performance by the Reds on what should have been a great night at the ballpark lat night has the Reds in a tough spot today. It doesn’t get any easier with Mike Minor on the mound for the Rangers tonight. Minor has been a major presence in the Rangers’ rotation to this point, with a 2.52 ERA striking out over a batter an inning so far this season. He’s coming off of 2 runs given up in 8 innings in Boston.

The Reds have Tanner Roark pitching tonight. They really would like to...

The Reds Lose

They lost 7-1.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Nick Senzel - He hit a solo dinger to break up the shutout. So, yeah.

Honorable Mention: Matt Bowman for pitching two innings to stop the bleeding and striking out three and Yasiel Puig for singling twice and knocking a double in the 9th. I guess.

I’d type a bunch more stuff but this game sucked honky apples. It made the Reds look bad which made me feel sad. If you’re paying attention the season is slowly sliding...

Eight MLB players having disappointing seasons

We’re over two months into the MLB season, and things are really starting to take shape across the league. While we’ve been delighted by the performances of numerous star players, there are also some big names that have, for whatever reason, simply failed to launch in 2019 and have actually turned out to be detrimental to their teams. Which key players aren’t doing enough this season? Here are eight who have disappointed so far. 8. Manny Machado, 3B, Padres What Machado has meant to...

Rangers at Reds, Game 1 - Preview and Lineups

The Reds host a rare series against the AL West foes.

There was a time when Ruben Sierra was one of my favorite baseball players on the planet. Or, at least I sure thought he was, since I’m pretty sure I’d never seen the Texas Rangers play a single game of baseball at that juncture of my life. Sierra’s baseball cards managed to get into basically every single pack of Donruss or Topps or Upper Deck I picked up as a t-ball playing knucklehead at that time, however, so I was pretty...

Red Reporter Podcast - Draft signings, and what the Reds should do when Scooter Gennett & Alex Wood return

Stretch your ears and run a sound marathon with us!

The Cincinnati Reds have had quite the busy week. They managed to get each of their top 3 picks from the 2019 MLB Draft under contract, something that seemed a financial impossibility just days ago given the full-slot bonus needed to sign TCU LHP Nick Lodolo and the commitments to college powerhouse programs from Rece Hinds and Tyler Callihan, the talented high schoolers taken in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

The Reds managed to make the dollars...

Red Reposter - Reds sign 2nd round pick Rece Hinds

Friday links!

When news broke immediately after last week’s draft that the Cincinnati Reds and 1st round pick Nick Lodolo were initially of the agreement that the talented lefty would receive his full $5.43 million slot bonus when signing, that made a few of us a tad nervous. Not because he’s not worth it, but because that would take a huge chunk out of the team’s overall draft bonus pool, something that would make inking their uber talented 2nd and 3rd round picks - both high...
