    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…

  2. 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,…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

    May 10, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    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.

    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…

  7. Nick Hundley slams suspended teammate Yasmani Grandal

    May 9, 2013, 6:16 PM EDT

    Nick Hundley

    We tend to praise those veterans who take youngsters under their wings. Especially when that youngster is gunning for the veteran’s own job. Padres catcher Nick Hundley isn’t going that route, though. Maybe he would have under different circumstances. Say if the youngster replacing him wasn’t a big, ol’ cheater. Asked Wednesday about the Padres’…

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

    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

    May 8, 2013, 6:50 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…

  10. Craig Kimbrel gives up back-to-back homers in loss to Reds

    May 7, 2013, 11:06 PM EDT

    Shin-Soo Choo

    Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel took his third blown save, matching his total from 2012, and his first loss after giving up back-to-back homers to Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo in the Reds’ 5-4 win over the Braves on Tuesday. They were the second and third homers surrendered by Kimbrel in 14 1/3 innings this year.…

    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…

  12. Yu Darvish is striking out a lot of hitters

    May 5, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    yu darvish reuters

    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,…

  13. 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…

    The more basebally ones will be saved for tomorrow’s HBT Daily. Here are the ones that don’t lend themselves as well to video: Q: Better BlueJays manager? John Gibbons #1 or John Gibbons #2?

  17. 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.…

    Brandon Moss

    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 Getty

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Apr 27, 2013, 8:57 AM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann AP

    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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  25. 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…
