Cincinnati Reds

  1. Indians broadcaster Tom Hamilton got a little too into the Aroldis Chapman-Nick Swisher beanball incident

    May 28, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Cincinnati Reds

    I had missed this until earlier today but apparently Aroldis Chapman threw a couple pitches at Nick Swisher late in yesterday’s Reds-Indians game. They were likely inside on purpose and Swisher and Chapman stared each other down over it. Indians broadcaster Tom Hamilton, however, took it to the next level, saying the sorts of things…

  2. Dusty Baker wants players to start fighting and stop cursing

    Dusty Baker is a tough guy to get a handle on. Yesterday the Reds manager dove head-first into the Johnny Cueto-Matt Garza feud by saying that he thinks players should settle disputes by locking themselves in a room and fighting until “somebody hits the ground.” Then later in the same afternoon he publicly criticized his…

  3. Yasmani Grandal completes suspension, to rejoin Padres on Tuesday

    Yasmani Grandal showed plenty of promise as a rookie last season, but he was handed a 50-game suspension last fall after he tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone. However, now that Grandal has completed his punishment and a brief rehab assignment, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the 24-year-old backstop will rejoin the Padres…

  4. Kyuji Fujikawa headed back to disabled list with forearm strain

    May 27, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    Kyuji Fujikawa Getty

    Kyuji Fujikawa already had one stint on the disabled list this season due to a right forearm strain, but now he’s facing another extended absence with what’s believed to be the same injury. Fujikawa was placed on the 15-day disabled list today after he was forced to leave Sunday’s outing against the Reds. Paul Sullivan…

  5. Dusty Baker wishes Johnny Cueto and Matt Garza could fight

    May 27, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    Dusty Baker

    Matt Garza had a whole bunch of bad stuff to say about Johnny Cueto after the Reds right-hander threw a pitch that sailed above Cubs center fielder David DeJesus‘ head yesterday. Among other things, Garza said that Cueto should “grow the hell up” and added that “if he has something to say about it, he…

  6. Matt Garza tells Johnny Cueto to “grow the hell up”

    May 27, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    matt garza ap

    In the sixth inning of yesterday’s Cubs-Reds game Johnny Cueto threw a pitch over David DeJesus‘ head, leading to both benches being warned. Chicago came back to win the game and afterward Cubs starter Matt Garza, who’d plunked Todd Frazier two innings earlier, was very upset at Cueto: Hopefully he learns to grow the hell…

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

    May 26, 2013, 12:19 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    The Reds are 16-5 since the first day of May. 16-5. That run of success continued on Saturday evening at Great American Ball Park as Homer Bailey went six strong innings and Aroldis Chapman earned his 12th save in an easy 5-2 defeat of the visiting Cubs. Bailey now owns a 3.08 ERA, 1.13 WHIP…

  9. McCoy: Brandon Phillips “slipping into Joe Morgan’s domain”

    brandon phillips getty

    If the aforementioned quote refers to a science fiction film, you can count me in. As it relates to baseball, though, I’m not on board. In a column for FOX Sports Ohio, Hal McCoy uses some dubious statistical comparisons to equate Phillips to Joe Morgan. It’s an otherwise interesting and informative column, but I can’t…

  10. Joey Votto and the generation gap

    May 24, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Two articles were posted recently in stark contract to one another. The first is a very insightful piece by ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, detailing Reds first baseman Joey Votto‘s approach to hitting. The second was a not-so-insightful piece by Paul Daugherty of the Enquire, taking a swipe at Votto because he doesn’t have many runs batted…

  11. The best and worst from MLB lineups in 2013

    May 24, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    This is a quick look at the very best and worst each major league lineup spot has to offer this year. Posted along with each line is the player most responsible. We’ll start out with the good before moving on to the bad. 1. Reds: .292/.442/.517, 9 HR, 37 R, 20 RBI, 5 SB (Shin-Soo…

  12. 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]…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
