    The Reds are already without left-hander Sean Marshall due to a shoulder sprain, but their bullpen was handed another blow today, as Jonathan Broxton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Broxton allowed the winning run in Thursday’s 14-inning loss to the Cubs, after which he…

    Jun 14, 2013, 10:50 PM EDT

    Reds' manager Dusty Baker watches from the dugout as his team plays the Giants in Game 5 of their MLB NLDS playoff baseball series in Cincinnati

    In the latest instance of a Major League manager refusing to consider anything but by-the-book bullpen use, Reds manager Dusty Baker reiterated to the media that he will not use closer Aroldis Chapman for more than one inning: Dusty Baker just said he will not use Aroldis Chapman in the 8th inning. Said the days…

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

    Ed Hickox, weather

    White Sox 10, Blue Jays 6: “The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.” Carl Sandburg said that about fog. “It was worse than when it rains. With the lights, it made it really really bright. It was weird.” Adam Dunn said that about fog. Which may…

  6. Picture of the Day: Fog at U.S. Cellular Field

    There’s some crazy fog going on in Chicago this evening. While the Reds and Cubs are playing through it on the North Side — in fact, Brandon Phillips has hit a grand slam — the Blue Jays and White Sox went into a fog delay in the bottom of the third inning. And as this…

  7. Mike Matheny on instant replay: “the writing is on the wall”

    Jun 10, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has been generally against expanded instant replay because, in his words, it could open up a “pandora’s box.” But he has changed his mind on that as of Saturday night. That game ended on a blown call in which Joey Votto was pulled off the first base bag on a throw…

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

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

    The battle for the National League Central wages on. Cincinnati fell to St. Louis in the first game of this important weekend series on Friday night at Great American Ball Park but rallied back to even up the three-game set on Saturday, tagging Cardinals rookie left-hander Tyler Lyons for four runs on one walk and…

  10. Mat Latos extends unbeaten streak to 20 consecutive games

    Jun 8, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Reds starter Mat Latos was last saddled with a loss on August 24 last season, when he allowed seven runs in five innings to the Cardinals. In the 20 starts since, Latos has won ten games and received ten no-decisions. Tonight marked the 20th consecutive game in which Latos started a game and did not…

    Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips hasn’t appeared in a game since getting hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Saturday evening. But his return is apparently imminent. According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, both Phillips himself and Reds manager Dusty Baker insisted earlier this evening that Phillips will be back…

  12. Johnny Cueto scratched from start, placed on disabled list

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    Johnny Cueto was scratched from tonight’s scheduled start against the Rockies and placed on the disabled list with a lat injury, leaving the Reds scrambling to find a fill-in starter. Tony Cingrani no doubt would have been the choice after pitching so well subbing for Cueto earlier this season, but he started yesterday at Triple-A.…

    San Diego Padres v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Welcome to the bigs Yasiel Puig. In his first game Puig had two hits and then in the ninth he made a catch at the wall and then a strong throw to first to double off Chris Donorfia to end the game. This guy has the chance to be something special.…

  15. Lean in: Shin-Soo Choo is on pace for 48 hit by pitches

    Jun 3, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Cincinnati Reds

    Reds center fielder and leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo was hit by a pitch yesterday for the 17th time this season, which leads baseball by a wide margin over Starling Marte with 12. And no one else has been hit by more than seven pitches. Some other crazy stats to consider … Coming into this season…

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  17. Play of the Day: Garrett Jones hits the Allegheny on the fly

    Jun 2, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Garrett Jones

    For just the second time in PNC Park’s 13-year history, a player hit a home run into the Allegheny River on the fly. Garrett Jones became the first Pirate to do so when he slugged a two-run, game-tying home run off of Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton down the right field line, clearing the sidewalk in…

  18. Dusty Baker’s bullpen mismanagement costs the Reds another win

    Jun 2, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    aroldis chapman getty

    Dusty Baker is one of many managers across baseball who utilizes his bullpen according to the save rule, which means that the closer doesn’t enter the game until his team has a lead between one and three runs in the ninth inning. In this afternoon’s game against the Pirates, the Reds entered the bottom of…

    New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

    Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a…

  20. Brewers’ Jean Segura is first in four years to collect six hits

    May 29, 2013, 1:07 AM EDT

    Jean Segura

    Jean Segura tied a Brewers record Tuesday by going 6-for-7 in a 14-inning loss to the Twins.  All of Segura’s hits were singles. The last was a liner to right that would have been caught by a better defender than Ryan Doumit, but it was still hit pretty sharply. It made him the first player…

  21. 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…

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

    dusty baker toothpick

    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…

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

    May 27, 2013, 9:38 PM EDT

    Yasmani Grandal Getty

    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…

    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…

    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…
