    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

    Matt Adams gave a little push to a fan with his glove after missing a foul ball Thursday.

  3. Billy Hamilton had the Mets totally psyched out

    Sep 23, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Reds manager Dusty Baker declined to start Billy Hamilton again Monday after his three-hit day Sunday, instead reserving him for pinch-running duties. When he did go to him in the eighth, it produced a memorable sequence. Hamilton pinch-ran for Ryan Hanigan with two outs and none on in a tie game in the bottom of…

  4. Reds trounce Pirates to bring NL Wild Card back into a deadlock

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Reds brought the lumber today against Pirates starter Jeff Locke. Locke, an All-Star, entered today’s start with a 5.43 ERA since the break. It didn’t improve. The Reds tagged Locke for five runs in the top of the first. After the Reds loaded the bases with one out, Jay Bruce laced a bases-clearing double…

  5. The Reds got bunt-happy last night and it cost them dearly

    Sep 5, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    If the Reds fall a game short of the Cardinals and/or Pirates — or, heaven forbid, the Diamondbacks or Nationals — they might want to look at last night’s game against the Cardinals as the reason why. It was a night the Red squandered multiple opportunities thanks to ill-advised bunts. The first weird attempt did…

  6. Todd Helton doubles in the seventh for 2,500th career hit

    Sep 1, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Todd Helton

    Long time Rockies first baseman Todd Helton sliced a double down the left field line against Reds reliever Curtis Partch in the bottom of the seventh for his 2,500th career hit. Helton narrowly beat left fielder Chris Heisey‘s throw to second base for the double. There was a brief pause in the game as Helton…

  7. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    It only seems right to use this space to update the situation in the National League Central — baseball’s tightest divisional race by far here in late 2013. Shelby Miller allowed just three hits and one earned run over seven innings and Carlos Beltran slugged his 23rd home run of the season Saturday as the…

  8. Ryan Ludwick won’t be back until mid-August

    May 26, 2013, 12:19 PM EDT

    ludwick getty

    The assumption after Ryan Ludwick underwent April shoulder surgery was that he would miss around three months. But it’s going to be closer to five. C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer spoke to Ludwick Saturday about his timetable. “People seem to be under the impression that I’ll be back in the middle of July and that’s a complete…

  9. Chris Heisey re-strains hamstring, pulled off rehab assignment

    May 14, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    A frustrating development here for the Redlegs. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, outfielder Chris Heisey re-strained his troublesome right hamstring Monday in a rehab game at Double-A Pensacola. He has been pulled off his minor league rehab assignment and sent to Cincinnati to be examined by the organization’s medical staff. Heisey had been hoping to rejoin…

  10. Reds lose another outfielder, place Chris Heisey on DL

    Apr 29, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Cincinnati Reds - Game Two

    Cincinnati was already without left fielder Ryan Ludwick and now his replacement, Chris Heisey, is headed to the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Heisey has been fairly productive in a part-time role, but hit just .173 with two homers and a .488 OPS through 23 games this year. In his place the Reds…

  11. Reds score nine times in ninth to embarrass Cardinals 13-4

    Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    The joke was on Shin-Soo Choo for most of Monday’s Reds-Cardinals game, as the newly converted center fielder dropped a pair of Yadier Molina flyballs to give St. Louis three of its four runs. Then came the top of the ninth inning. With Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs in a 4-4 game, the Reds exploded —…

  12. Reds won’t move Shin-Soo Choo to left field with Ryan Ludwick out

    Apr 4, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Reds' Shin-Soo Choo prepares to hit against the Diamondbacks during their MLB Cactus League spring training baseball game in Scottsdale

    Ryan Ludwick‘s torn shoulder labrum gave the Reds a potential excuse to move Shin-Soo Choo out of center field–where he’s basically never played regularly–and use Chris Heisey there. Heisey is going to sub for Ludwick anyway and has significantly more center field experience than Choo, but manager Dusty Baker told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that…

  13. Ryan Ludwick out three months following shoulder surgery

    Apr 2, 2013, 3:51 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick

    Ryan Ludwick suffered a dislocated right shoulder while sliding into third base yesterday and the Reds announced that he’ll undergo surgery tomorrow to repair torn cartilage. There’s no official timetable for his return yet, but the Reds placed Ludwick on the disabled list and obviously he’s going to be out for a while. Chris Heisey…

  14. Ryan Ludwick leaves Reds’ season opener with dislocated right shoulder

    Apr 1, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick Getty

    The Reds’ starting left fielder could be looking at an extended absence. According to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, Ryan Ludwick was diagnosed with a dislocated right shoulder after he injured it on a head-first slide into third base in the third inning of today’s season opener against the Angels. He’s scheduled to undergo an MRI…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The Cincinnati Reds. The Big Question: Is this the Reds’ year? It certainly has that feel. The Reds tallied 97…

  16. Reds avoid arbitration with Chris Heisey, Alfredo Simon

    Jan 31, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Cincinnati Reds - Game Two

    Cincinnati avoided arbitration with two players, signing outfielder Chris Heisey and reliever Alfredo Simon to one-year contracts. Heisey gets $1.325 million, which is right around the midpoint of his $1.65 million request and the team’s $1.05 million counter. He hit .265 with .715 OPS in 375 plate appearances last season and figures to have another…

  17. Arbitration filings: Chase Headley’s $10.3 million request leads way

    Jan 18, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Chase Headley

    The Padres’ Chase Headley, the Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo and the Tigers’ Max Scherzer are among those asking for big raises in arbitration.

  18. Reds beat Cubs to become first team to clinch playoff berth

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto

    Trotting out a lineup that included just one regular, the Reds beat the Cubs 5-3 on Thursday to complete a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field and become the first team this year to clinch a playoff berth. The Reds got Johnny Cueto his 18th victory despite fielding a lineup that included Miguel Cairo at first…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 8, Marlins 4: Bryce Harper hit two homers, bro. Jacob Turner: not really ready for the major leagues yet, bro. Mets 3, Phillies 2: Matt Harvey continues to impress (6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 6K). The Phillies pitcher is listed in the box score is named “Tyler Cloyd.” I’m calling b.s.  That’s a…

  20. The Reds are just toying with the rest of the league

    Aug 29, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Miguel Cairo

    That’s my feeling anyway. Manager Dusty Baker went so far as to start Miguel Cairo at first base Wednesday, yet the Reds beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 to complete a three-game sweep in Arizona. Cairo, who entered the game with a .168/.198/.264 line in 125 at-bats this season, went 0-for-4. It should be noted that this…

  21. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Aroldis Chapman Getty

    The big series of the weekend kicked off last night in Cincinnati, as the Reds blanked the second-place Pirates by the score of 3-0 in front of a sellout crowd of 40,829 at Great American Ballpark. Mat Latos was dominant in the victory, allowing just four hits (all singles) over 7 1/3 shutout innings while…

  22. Reds among teams interested in Juan Pierre

    Jul 7, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Juan Pierre Reuters

    We’ve heard all sorts of chatter about the Phillies possibly moving impending free agents Cole Hamels or Shane Victorino if GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. decides to become a seller before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but they aren’t the only players drawing interest from opposing general managers. ESPN’s Buster Olney reported last night that…

  23. Drew Stubbs returns to Reds following oblique injury

    Jun 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs Getty

    As expected the Reds activated Drew Stubbs from the disabled list after the center fielder missed the past three weeks with a strained oblique muscle. Stubbs went 1-for-10 on a brief minor-league rehab assignment and figures to resume starting in center field, pushing Chris Heisey back into a corner spot after serving as the primary…

  24. Drew Stubbs on track to rejoin Reds on Monday

    Jun 23, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs Getty

    Drew Stubbs began a minor league rehab assignment last night with Class A Dayton as he continues to make his way back from a strained left oblique. Stubbs, who has been sidelined since June 5, went 0-for-2 and played five innings in center field. The speedy 27-year-old later told Mark Clements of MLB.com that he…

  25. Drew Stubbs to begin rehab assignment Friday at Single-A

    Jun 21, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs

    Out since June 5 with a strained oblique muscle, Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment tomorrow at Single-A. There’s no official timetable for his return, but Mark Sheldon of MLB.com speculates that Stubbs will likely be back after just 2-3 rehab games if all goes well. He’s eligible…
