  1. Jonathan Broxton out six months after elbow surgery

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Three

    Yesterday when the Reds announced that Jonathan Broxton needed elbow surgery manager Dusty Baker said that an official return timetable wouldn’t be known until doctors “get in there and see what’s wrong.” Well, the doctors got in there today to repair a torn flexor mass and now the Reds say Broxton will be out for…

  2. Meanwhile, in Brandon Phillips vs. Joey Votto land …

    From today’s Reds-Dbacks game, a sequence that will never get recounted by the folks like Paul Daugherty who like to say Joey Votto is a bum and Brandon Phillips is the team MVP. Third inning: Shin-Soo Choo leads off with a single. The second batter — today Todd Frazier — strikes out looking.  Choo reaches…

  3. Jonathan Broxton needs elbow surgery, out for the season

    Aug 22, 2013, 1:48 PM EST

    Jonathan Broxton

    Cincinnati signing Jonathan Broxton to a three-year, $21 million contract was criticized heavily this offseason and now it looks considerably worse, as the right-hander will miss the remainder of the season following elbow surgery. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com described the current details surrounding Broxton’s recovery timetable as “vague” and manager Dusty Baker indicated that doctors…

    Reds starter Tony Cingrani left Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks in the top of the fourth inning with what is being called a lower back strain. The 24-year-old left-hander allowed one run on two hits and a walk before being lifted with two outs in the fourth. Alfredo Simon entered in relief. A lower back…

  5. Joey Votto actually has to defend himself? This is where we are?

    Every time I think that the bulk of baseball fans and commentators has moved on from the dark ages of batting average and RBI meaning everything and into at least the Renaissance period that was the early-“Moneyball Days,” something odd happens to make me realize that, nope, not as many people have moved on as…

  6. Braun not likely to answer media questions in his “coming clean” session. It hardly matters.

    There was a report over the weekend that Ryan Bruan would soon be “coming clean” about his PED use, lies and all the rest. Tom Haudricourt reports, however, that he may not be answering any questions: Word has circulated that Braun was preparing to make a public apology and admission of guilt in using PEDs…

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

  8. Yovani Gallardo excellent in return from the disabled list

    Aug 17, 2013, 10:55 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Milwaukee Brewers

    Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo blanked the Reds over six and one-third innings of work, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three in his first start after returning from the disabled list. He had been out since July 31 with a strained left hamstring. He sat in the high-80’s and low 90’s with…

    Houston Astros v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

  10. Carlos Gomez exits game with right knee sprain

    Aug 15, 2013, 9:45 PM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v Seattle Mariners

    Brewers outfielder and NL MVP candidate Carlos Gomez was taken out of tonight’s game against the Reds after making a spectacular catch against the wall in center field in the top of the fourth inning. Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips led off the inning by drilling a fastball to straightaway center. Gomez leaped and grabbed…

  11. Brandon Belt quietly finding success in 2013

    Aug 15, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Brandon Belt

    During his rapid ascent to the Majors, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was ranked as highly as the #23 overall prospect by Baseball America prior to the 2011 season.  Promoted that same year, Belt took a while to get kickstarted in the Majors. His wrist was fractured on a pitch thrown by Cardinals reliever Trever…

    Yankees' Soriano points as he crosses home plate in the fifth inning of their MLB American League baseball game the Angels in New York

    Yankees 11, Angels 3: Holy cow, Alfonso Soriano. Two homers and seven RBI. The old guy has four homers, six runs scored and 13 RBI in his last two games. The Yankees have won four straight. Reds 5, Cubs 0: Seven shutout innings from Bronson Arroyo helps the Redlegs snag the three-game sweep. My friend Mark,…

    Baltimore Orioles v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks 4, Orioles 3: Paul Goldschmidt homered to tie it in the ninth, homered to win it in the 11th. It’s perhaps too late for this, but memo to Buck Showalter: maybe don’t pitch to Paul Goldschmidt. Two walkoff wins in a row for the Dbacks. Their ninth walkoff win of the year. Yankees 14,…

    Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

    Twins 3, Indians 0: In only his second major league start Andrew Albers spins a two-hit shutout on a mere 102 pitches. This goes with his eight shutout innings in his first start. As a person who has been writing about baseball professionally for nearly four years, I can tell you with absolute certainty and…

  15. Ryan Ludwick rejoins Reds after missing 116 games

    Aug 12, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    ludwick getty

    Ryan Ludwick, who’s been out since separating his shoulder on Opening Day, is off the disabled list and back in the Reds’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Cubs. Ludwick is batting sixth and playing left field, where the Reds have gotten the majors’ fourth-worst OPS in his absence. Cincinnati left fielders have combined to…

    New York Yankees' Gardner follows through on walk off solo home run to defeat Detroit Tigers during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 5, Tigers 4: If I told you that Mariano Rivera blew two saves in a three game series you’d probably assume the Yankees had a bad series. Except in this case they won both of the games Mo blew. Baseball is weird. Miguel Cabrera homered off of him again on Sunday — he’s only…

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

    Miami Marlins v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 4, Marlins 3: A walkoff homer for Josh Harrison — the utility infielder if you didn’t know — gave this one to Pittsburgh, as the Pirates show no inclination to give up first place. Andrew McCutchen had a fantastic diving catch to save at least one run in the seventh when the game was tied and…

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 2: In what is the most meaningful baseball played in Pittsburgh in over 20 years, Francisco Liriano was dominant and Pedro Alvarez hit his NL-leading 27th homer and the Pirates pull to within a half game of first place. Rays 2, Red Sox 1: Gotta love that a blown call impacted a…

  21. Report: Reds inquired about the availability of Hunter Pence

    Hunter Pence Getty

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Reds have inquired about the availability of Giants’ outfielder Hunter Pence. Nothing appears to be imminent, as Heyman writes that the two sides don’t “look like a match so far.” Heyman writes that the Reds are on the lookout for a right-handed bat, so Pence would fit the…

  22. Yasiel Puig ends pitcher’s duel with walk-off homer

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    Yasiel Puig

    Rumors of Yasiel Puig‘s demise were greatly exaggerated. After lighting the baseball world on fire following his debut on June 3, Puig went into a skid, posting a .579 OPS in 16 games between July 3-23. The thought was that the league had finally caught up to him, but entering this afternoon’s series finale against…

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 9, Pirates 7: This could have been an awful, awful defeat, what with the Nats bullpen once again pooping all over itself. At least I’m assuming it would have been a defeat. The game was tied entering the bottom of the ninth. Thanks to Bryce Harper‘s walkoff homer, however, we don’t know how extras…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:18 AM EST

    Mike Leake

    Wednesday’s 8-3 loss to the Reds had to be particularly frustrating for Giants fans, considering that… – Hunter Pence went 5-for-5 and the team as a whole collected 15 hits – The team left 15 men on base, it’s high total in a nine-inning game since 2008 – Chad Gaudin, the club’s best starter of…
