  1. Reds reliever Sean Marshall goes back on the disabled list

    May 24, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    For the second time this season Reds left-hander Sean Marshall is headed to the disabled list with shoulder problems. Last month it was tendinitis and now it’s being called a sprained shoulder, so it seems likely that Marshall will be out of action for more than the minimum 15 days. In between the injuries he…

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  3. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  4. Zack Cozart: the Matt Harvey tamer

    May 22, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Joey Votto, Zack Cozart

    Superman has kryptonite. Matt Harvey has Zack Cozart. Despite being a nearly unhittable pitcher this year, the Reds’ Cozart got four hits off Harvey today en route to a 4 for 5, two-double performance. Overall Harvey had his worst outing of the season, allowing four runs on nine hits in six and a third. One…

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

  6. Aroldis Chapman allegedly ate 18 pastries before Sunday’s game

    May 21, 2013, 9:46 AM EDT

    pastry

    I heard someone mention this yesterday but thought they were joking. Andy Martino of the Daily News, however, quotes Phillies broadcaster Rickie Ricardo, who claims that Aroldis Chapman ate 18 cream cheese-guava pastries before Sunday’s game. The game in which he blew the save, giving up a walkoff homer to Freddy Galvis: “Could you imagine cream…

    Clayton Kershaw

    Dodgers 3, Brewers 1: After the last scene of Don Mattingly’s managerial life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that at many times along the path of his time in Los Angeles, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints. Clayton Kershaw then whispered, “My precious…

  8. Johnny Cueto may alter his mechanics to avoid injuries

    May 20, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Johnny Cueto

    Johnny Cueto is slated to come off the disabled list and start tonight for the Reds after missing the past month with a lat injury. His return was delayed by the same oblique problems that plagued Cueto last season and the right-hander revealed that he’s considering changing his mechanics to avoid similar injuries. Here’s what…

  9. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 20, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Freddy Galvis

    Phillies 3, Reds 2: Aroldis Chapman is usually automatic. But he surrendered back-to-back bombs to the murderers row that is Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis as the Philly walked off Cincinnati. Heck, the inning started with Chapman walking Delmon Young on four straight pitches, so you know he wasn’t on it yesterday. And Cliff Lee…

  10. Jason Grilli continues to dominate

    May 19, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Jason Grilli

    Pirates closer Jason Grilli spent most of his 20’s and early 30’s bouncing from organization to organization — he pitched for the White Sox, Tigers, Rockies, and Rangers. Between 2004-09, working almost exclusively as a reliever, he posted a 4.62 ERA. He suffered a knee injury during spring training in 2010 with the Indians, forcing…

  11. Phillies use wacky ninth inning to defeat Aroldis Chapman, Reds

    May 19, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    chapman getty

    The ninth inning of today’s Reds-Phillies series finale was full of statistical improbabilities. First, Delmon Young drew a four-pitch walk (yes, Delmon Young walked) against Aroldis Chapman. He was immediately replaced by pitcher and pinch-runner Cliff Lee. With Erik Kratz at the plate battling Chapman in a 2-2 count, the lefty reliever picked Lee off…

  12. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    May 19, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    votto, bruce getty

    Because the Cardinals have been just as hot and currently hold the top spot in the National League Central standings, the Reds’ run of success over the past couple of weeks has flown somewhat under the radar. Cincinnati was at it again on Saturday evening at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park, routing the host Phillies by…

  13. Joey Votto reaches base six times as Reds rout Phillies

    May 18, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    If you needed a reminder that Joey Votto is the best pure hitter in baseball, you got one this evening as the Reds defeated the Phillies 10-0. Joey Votto came to the plate six times and reached base all six times, including a two-run home run in the top of the ninth that served as…

  14. Reds send Tony Cingrani back to Triple-A

    May 18, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Tony Cingrani Getty

    With Johnny Cueto slated to return from a lat strain on Monday, the Reds have optioned left-hander Tony Cingrani back to Triple-A Louisville. Neftali Solo has been called up to take his place on the active roster. Cingrani was pretty impressive during his first stint in the majors, posting a 3.27 ERA and 41/9 K/BB…

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  17. Johnny Cueto will rejoin the Reds’ rotation Monday

    May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    Johnny Cueto‘s minor-league rehab assignment is over after two starts at Single-A and John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that he’ll come off the disabled list to start for the Reds on Monday. Cueto allowed one run in eight innings while rehabbing, striking out eight and walking zero, so he certainly seems ready to…

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

  19. Johnny Cueto sharp in rehab start, says he’s ready to return

    C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer was with the Low-A Dayton Dragons on Tuesday night to take in Johnny Cueto‘s latest minor league rehab start. And he reported back promising news. Cueto allowed no runs and just three hits over five innings against an affiliate of the Tigers, issuing no walks and fanning four.…

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

    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…

  21. Is Manny Machado in the same echelon as Mike Trout and Bryce Harper?

    May 11, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    MASN’s Steve Melewski argues that Manny Machado should be considered in the same conversation as Mike Trout and Bryce Harper when it comes to the best young players in baseball. The Orioles’ 20-year-old third baseman is off to a fantastic start in 2013, carrying a .314/.356/.503 line through 166 plate appearances. By Baseball Reference WAR,…

  22. The awesomeness of Miller and Harvey

    May 11, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last year, of course, we were lucky enough to get two of the most precocious young players in baseball history — Mike Trout put up a historic season at age 20, Bryce Harper put up a superb one at age 19. It was the greatest young duo to hit baseball since 1928 — when Jimmie…

  23. Video: Brandon Phillips turned a pretty nifty double play last night

    May 11, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips Getty

    Brandon Phillips is no stranger to excellent plays with the glove, but his double play against the Brewers last night was pretty ridiculous. Phillips also pitched in at the plate, as he went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI. His solo shot off Mike Gonzalez in the bottom of the seventh ended up…

  24. Johnny Cueto resumes rehab assignment

    May 10, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Johnny Cueto resumed his minor-league rehab assignment after putting things on hold due to an oblique injury, throwing 50 pitches and three innings yesterday at Single-A. Cueto, who’s recovering from a strained lat muscle, allowed one run on four hits in three innings, walking zero and striking out four. C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati…

    Jonny Venters managed to avoid surgery on his left elbow following a visit to Dr. James Andrews last month, but his attempt to rehab the injury has hit a snag. Venters threw off the mound today for the first time since he received a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his elbow four weeks ago, but…
