    Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was removed from Tuesday’s game against the Padres because of a left calf strain and later told reporters that he was going to be out of commission “a while.” But there is suddenly reason for optimism. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday night that…

  2. Devin Mesoraco suspended three days for an ump bump

    Aug 1, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Cincinnati Reds

    On Monday night Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco was ejected for poking umpire Chad Fairchild in the chest protector after Fairchild called a ball on a pitch that Mesoraco thought was a strike, and then bumping him before leaving the field.  You can’t do that, see, and today Mesoraco was suspended for three games. Mesoraco says he’ll…

  3. Padres lose hot-hitting rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal to oblique injury

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal has provided a huge spark for the Padres since being called up on June 2, hitting .312 with five homers and a .947 OPS in 24 games, but now he’ll miss at least two weeks with a strained oblique muscle. He’ll be eligible to return from the disabled list in the…

  4. Slumping Bryce Harper “trying to find some mellowness”

    Bryce Harper has come back down to earth following a great start to his career, hitting just .214 with a .594 OPS in his last 40 games and .171 since the All-Star break. His overall OPS is in danger of dipping below .750 for the first time since May 19 and the 19-year-old told James…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

  6. Brandon Phillips could land on DL with calf strain

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Brandon Phillips came back and played Monday after leaving Sunday’s game with a cramp in his left calf, but it appears he made the injury a whole lot worse tonight. MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon has the quotes from the Reds second baseman: The calf is no bueno right now. I tried to play [Monday] because the…

  7. Tales of Feliz, Bard figure to scare off future starting conversions

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    If the Reds were still thinking of putting Aroldis Chapman into the rotation next year, today’s announcement will surely give them pause. Former Rangers closer Neftali Feliz will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss most or all of 2013 after being diagnosed with a torn UCL in his elbow. It means two of this year’s…

  8. Reds’ NL-best bullpen adds Jonathan Broxton from Royals

    Jul 31, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Jonathan Broxton

    You wouldn’t think the Reds would need more bullpen help, what with Aroldis Chapman and Sean Marshall leading a relief corps that has the best ERA in baseball, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Cincinnati has acquired Jonathan Broxton from Kansas City for minor leaguers Donnie Joseph and J.C. Sulbaran. Broxton signed a one-year,…

  9. Phillies send Shane Victorino to Dodgers for pair of pitchers

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v St. Louis Cardinals

    For the past week rumors have been swirling about the Phillies offering up Shane Victorino for bullpen help. They were reportedly turned down by the Reds for Logan Ondrusek, but today they found a taker and sent Victorino to the Dodgers for reliever Josh Lindblom, pitching prospect Ethan Martin, and a player to be named…

  10. Dodgers “in serious talks” with Phillies for Shane Victorino

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Philadelphia Phillies

    UPDATE: Done deal. Victorino to Los Angeles. ========== According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com the Dodgers and Phillies are “in serious talks” for center fielder Shane Victorino. Last week reports surfaced that the Reds turned down the Phillies’ offer of Victorino for reliever Logan Ondrusek and since then there’s been other speculation about Philadelphia shopping…

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

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:21 AM EDT

    Kendrys Morales, Albert Pujols

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…

  12. Shane Victorino is “top target” for Reds

    Jul 30, 2012, 7:40 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Philadelphia Phillies

    We continue to hear chatter that the Reds are interested in Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre, but Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that his teammate Shane Victorino is actually the club’s “top target” as they continue their search for a leadoff hitter. As of now, the Reds refuse to meet the Phillies’ asking price for the…

  13. Please stop the Juan Pierre-to-the-Reds ridiculousness

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Juan Pierre

    So, yeah, there seems to be a legitimate chance this is going to happen. But the Reds don’t need a leadoff hitter, and they certainly don’t need Juan Pierre. For starters, they have a perfectly good leadoff hitter, if only they’d use him there. Drew Stubbs strikes out a whole lot and has a disappointing…

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

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:06 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  15. Marty Brennaman is going to have to shave his head

    Jul 29, 2012, 7:35 PM EDT

    Marty Brennaman, Bill Cosby

    The Reds’ legendary broadcaster Marty Brennaman will be sporting a new look a week from now. The 70-year-old Ford C. Frick Award winner pledged earlier this year that he’d shave his head for a 10-game winning streak, and the Reds came through with one Sunday by beating the Rockies 7-2. Before today’s game, Brennaman said…

  16. Joey Votto aims to resume baseball-related workouts Monday

    Jul 28, 2012, 10:03 PM EDT

    joey votto getty

    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer has the goods: Joey Votto has not yet resumed baseball activities — other than throwing some — but he’ll likely start Monday when the team returns home. “Ideally,” said trainer Paul Lessard. Votto has played games of catch and done some light running but has yet to truly test…

    Jul 26, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Phillies 7, Brewers 6: It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing series than the one the Brewers just experienced. In all three games they fell victim to last inning rallies. This one after their own rally brought them back from a 5-1 deficit, tied with a Ryan Braun homer in the eighth. Then they take…

  18. Reds turned down trade with Phillies for Shane Victorino

    Jul 25, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Philadelphia Phillies

    Various reports have the Phillies shopping impending free agent Shane Victorino and according to Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer the Reds turned down a deal for the 31-year-old center fielder in exchange for reliever Logan Ondrusek. Ondrusek is a 26-year-old right-hander whose 2.70 ERA this season and 3.27 career mark are both great-looking, but…

    Jul 24, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Seattle Mariners

    Yankees 4, Mariners 1: Obviously Ichiro in Yankees clothing is the weirdest thing to hit baseball in some time. Must be how it felt to see Willie Mays wearing a Mets jersey or — and I really don’t think it’s hyperbole to say it — Babe Ruth in a Boston Braves uniform. OK, if that’s…

    Dark Knight Rises

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 3, White Sox 1: All Cody Ross does is hit three-run homers. The walkoff one here was his third in two days. Mets 9, Nationals 5: David Wright his a two-run and a three-run homer. He’s like a poor-man’s Cody Ross! R.A. Dickey is the first player in the NL to notch 13…

  22. Aroldis Chapman settles his speeding ticket

    Jul 18, 2012, 4:31 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    Remember Aroldis Chapman‘s speeding ticket? He was clocked at 93 — normally a changeup for him — but his attorney pleaded it down to an eephus pitch: Police in the Columbus suburb had reported clocking Chapman at 93 mph on Interstate 71. They found that his Kentucky driver’s license was suspended. His attorney Michael King…

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  24. Joey Votto to undergo knee surgery Tuesday, out at least three weeks

    Jul 16, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Joey Votto Getty

    The Reds entered tonight’s action one game in front of the Pirates in the National League Central, but they’ll have to get by without their best hitter for a while. The Reds just announced that Joey Votto will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He’s expected to miss the…

    Ben Sheets

    Braves 6, Mets 1: Ben Sheets emerges from the restorative chemical waters of the Lazarus Pits to throw six shutout innings against the Mets. Too bad this series is over. I heard the Braves were going to run Rich Harden out there tonight and maybe Mark Prior on Tuesday to see if the Mets are just as prone…
