Six shutouts on Sunday afternoon. So don’t worry if you think you wasted your day because 20% of all major league teams didn’t get much done yesterday either.

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…

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…

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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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 —…

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…

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…

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…

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…
