    Reds starter Johnny Cueto threw a 25-pitch bullpen session today with no ill effect. The right-hander is recovering from a right lat strain and has been sidelined since mid-April. Cueto hit a bump in the road when he felt soreness before a rehab start with Double-A Pensacola a few days ago. C. Trent Rosecrans reports…

  2. Yu Darvish is striking out a lot of hitters

    Underwhelming title? Rangers starter Yu Darvish‘s strikeout rate will overwhelm you. The 26-year-old right-hander struck out 14 Red Sox over seven innings today, lowering his ERA to 2.56. The 14 K’s bring his total to 72 on the season in 45 and one-third innings, a rate of 14.3 per nine innings. On a batters-faced basis,…

  3. Johnny Cueto scratched from rehab start with oblique injury

    May 3, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Johnny Cueto‘s recovery from a strained lat muscle is on hold after the Reds right-hander complained of oblique muscle soreness before beginning a minor-league rehab assignment at Double-A today. Cueto had to exit his NLDS start against the Giants in the first inning with an oblique injury, so while the setback isn’t related to his…

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Johnny Cueto has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment and will start Friday at Double-A, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cueto has been out since April 13 with a strained lat muscle, but reported no problems following a 45-pitch bullpen session yesterday and is slated to throw 60-70 pitches Friday.…

  7. Jay Bruce calls out the haters on Twitter

    May 1, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    It’s lose-lose for the famous on Twitter. If you’re notable, people are gonna try to poke at you a lot. And if you complain or try to fight back, you end up looking petty. Jay Bruce is probably learning that today. His tweets from last night: I appreciate all the tweets, good and bad, actually.…

    Athletics 10, Angels 8: Nineteen innings. Six and a half hours. Sixteen pitchers, including A’s Opening Day starter Brett Anderson who pitched five and a third innings out of the pen.

    Johnny Cueto hasn’t pitched since April 13 due to a strained right lat muscle, but he could be days away from beginning a minor league rehab assignment. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Cueto had no issues during a 45-pitch bullpen session this afternoon. It was his second time throwing off a mound since he…

  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. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    It was easy to sense a tiny bit of panic in the air after the Nationals dropped four in a row this week to fall under .500 for the first time since 2011. However, the past two games can put any of that silliness to bed. After Gio Gonzalez limited the Reds to a solo…

  12. Aroldis Chapman made customized “Cuban Missile” hats for all the Reds

    reds cuban missile hats

    Aroldis Chapman designed customized hats bearing his “Cuban Missile” nickname for all the Reds and handed them out yesterday. C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer sets the scene: Each player had another hat with the world “Cuban Missile” on the front with the player’s initials and number on the side … Chapman had the…

  13. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…

    New York Mets' Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run off Los Angeles Dodgers' Wall in MLB game in New York

    Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

  15. Shin-Soo Choo has been hit by more pitches than every team in baseball

    Apr 23, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Cincinnati Reds

    I wrote yesterday about how Reds outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had been hit by more pitches than any player in baseball history through this point in the season and then last night he got plunked again. Choo has now been hit 10 times in 19 games. You can read yesterday’s post to see how far ahead…

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  17. Barry Zito is a reborn Christian, “really excited” about owning and shooting guns

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Barry Zito

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

    From MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon comes word that the Reds have placed catcher Ryan Hanigan on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. Hanigan has also been dealing with a sore right thumb and seems likely to miss about three weeks. Corky Miller was called up from Triple-A Louisville to provide depth at…

  20. Zack Cozart hit on finger during bunt attempt

    Apr 20, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Zack Cozart

    After Shin-Soo Choo doubled to lead off the bottom of the 13th in this afternoon’s game against the Miami Marlins, Reds shortstop Zack Cozart attempted to sacrifice bunt to move the runner over to third with one out. Steve Cishek‘s sinker, which runs in on right-handed hitters, nailed Cozart on his finger. The 27-year-old was…

  21. Joey Votto is not struggling

    Apr 19, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    The good news: most people don’t think Joey Votto — who leads baseball by a wide margin with 24 walks and a .526 on-base percentage — is really struggling. The bad news: Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman, who has a large audience and is very persuasive, thinks Votto is struggling, according to Reds blog Red Reporter.…

  22. Reds batboy asked Todd Frazier to hit a home run. Frazier did.

    Apr 19, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Todd Frazier

    Fun story from C. Trent Rosecrans at the Cincinnati Enquirer about Reds batboy Ted Kremer. Kremer asked Todd Frazier to hit a homer. Frazier obliged. He also roots really hard for the Reds to strike out 11 hitters so he can get free pizza from La Rosa’s. Which, why anyone wants La Rosa’s pizza is…

    Apr 19, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 10, Rays 6: Time to re-bookmark Matt Wieters Facts. The Chosen One’s grand slam in the 10th gives the O’s their 17th straight extra innings win. Diamondbacks 6, Yankees 2: Frankie Cervelli hit a homer to tie it in the ninth. He also had two — not one, but two — catcher’s interference calls.…

  24. No timetable for Johnny Cueto to resume throwing

    Apr 18, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    After Johnny Cueto was placed on the disabled list earlier this week with a lat strain, Reds manager Dusty Baker estimated that the right-hander would only have to miss around 3-4 starts. That could be overly optimistic. Reds head athletic trainer Paul Lessard told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer today that there is not…

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

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…
