Reds vs Giants Game One: Preview and Lineups

Disco vs Casey Kelly

It is August 17th and it might just be the darkest part of the entire season for your Redlegs. Joey Votto was finally placed on the disabled list for his sore leg. If you recall, he got schnurked by Ryan Madson nearly two weeks ago. He has taken a day or two off here and there, but it isn’t getting better.

The Reds owe Joey Votto more than $150 million over the next six years or so. In a season going nowhere, I’d protect that investment a little better.

Reds place Joey Votto on disabled list

The Reds announced this afternoon that they’ve placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list due to a right knee contusion. Votto, of course, was hit near that knee by Ryan Madson last week in what many believed to be an intentional plunking. A pair of Nationals hitters, including Bryce Harper, had been hit prior to Votto, who was clipped in the leg with two outs in the inning of a game the Reds trailed 6-2. Harper, who was also hit in the knee, had left the game.Votto was...

Cincinnati Reds place Joey Votto on 10-day DL

Dang this season and its injuries, dangit. Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto was plunked on the right leg by Washington Nationals pitcher Ryan Madson in a game in the nation’s capital on August 4th. In 29 PA across 8 games since that time, Votto has both been noticeably limping and also only cobbled together a .227/.379/.273 line in 29 PA, and on Friday the Reds finally placed their star 1B on the 10-day DL. Whatever the hell the fates did to decide that the 2018 Cincinnati Reds season would...

Where does Michael Lorenzen fit with the Cincinnati Reds going forward?

The righty’s season hasn’t exactly gone according to plan.

Michael Lorenzen has a 2.98 ERA for the Cincinnati Reds this season, which is good. It’s quite good, really, and the kind of number you’d give anything to see from any Reds pitcher in any year, period. After shrugging off an oblique injury that sidelined him for nearly the first two full months of the season, he has managed 48.1 IP of keeping a good portion of the hitters he’s faced from scoring runs.

That’s a good front...

Reds making changes to front office departments

The Reds are making some changes to their scouting and player development departments, reports Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Scouting director Chris Buckley, who has been in charge of overseeing all aspects of the amateur draft, and director of player development Jeff Graupe have both been reassigned to new positions. It’s not yet clear how the Reds plan to address the new vacancies, with one Reds source telling Nightengale that the team has not yet determined whether...

Cincinnati Reds facing doldrums midway through August

Midway through August the Cincinnati Reds seem to be reverting back to familiar form. Coming after a their best two months of the season in June and July. Leaving Reds fans wondering what’s going wrong? Record-wise the Reds are 4-10 so far in the month of August. They had a 15-11 record in June and a 13-11 record in July. So far, those are the only two months this season where the Reds had a winning month-to-month record. The Reds have won back-to-back games just once this month. That...

Checking in on our Five Dumb Predictions for the 2018 Cincinnati Reds

Y’know, those dumb things we said about the Reds that one time.

Every March or April, the Red Reporter bloghole slaps together a few rudimentary thoughts, stares at a handful of player pages on Baseball Reference, and rolls a ten finger punch of the keyboard into a set of Five Dumb Predictions for the upcoming Cincinnati Reds season.

March of 2018 was no different. And, with a lull in the excitement of the 2018 season now in full force thanks to injuries, sub-par play, and the lack of any...

Farmers Only - Chris Okey homers again for Pensacola

The former 2nd rounder is finally heating up. Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night Chris Okey has struggled mightily since being a 2nd round pick of the Cincinnati Reds back in 2016. In fact, a quick glimpse at the numbers he’s posted in that time makes you want to close your eyes and count backwards until you pass out. Of course, Okey was also attemptint to play through a borked hamate bone for most of last season, and after finally getting that corrected, he’s finally, finally...

Reed picks up the slack in Stephenson's wake

Cincinnati used a three-run first inning to jump out to an early lead over the Indians but didn't score afterward in Wednesday's loss at Great American Ball Park. Cody Reed threw 3 2/3 strong innings upon relieving starter Robert Stephenson after just 1 2/3 frames, and Tucker Barnhart hit his fifth home run of the season in the defeat.

Walks haunt Stephenson, Reds in 4-3 loss to Indians

The Reds even had the bases loaded in the 9th, but they couldn’t avoid the sweep.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Jose Peraza’s 2018 season has been his best full season of his young career. After struggling at the plate for much of 2017, he has had a rebound year that has given us some hope that he can stick it out at short for a little while. He continued that tonight against the Cleveland Indians. He went 3 for 5 with 3 doubles and a run scored. Have a trophy,...

Suarez could see time at short to spell Peraza

Eugenio Suarez played shortstop for the last three innings of Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Indians, marking the second time he has played there for the Reds this season. The move got a heavily used Jose Peraza off of his feet for the final couple of frames and also prepared Suarez, Cincinnati's third baseman, to start at shortstop in the near future.

Cleveland at Reds, Game Three - Preview and Lineups

The Reds try to salvage a win from the final Ohio Cup series of the year.

Getting trounced by the collective score of 18-4 isn’t exactly how anyone had hoped this series between Cleveland and the Cincinnati Reds would go. That said, the fact of the matter is that the combination of Mike Clevinger and Corey Kluber is a pretty danged formidable one, and that paired with Cleveland’s potent offensive lineup has been more than the injury-riddled Reds could overcome so far.

On Wednesday, the...
