    Mar 2, 2014, 8:30 AM EDT

    Mike Leake

    Mike Leake was scheduled to make a start for the Reds this afternoon but he has been scratched due to an abdominal injury suffered during a workout roughly a month before the start of spring training, according to manager Bryan Price. Brett Marshall will start in Leake’s place. Thankfully, it isn’t a serious injury. More,…

  3. Reds VP Bob Miller on the arbitration process: “It works poorly”

    Jan 17, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Mike Leake

    The Reds avoided arbitration with starter Mike Leake and relievers Sam LeCure and Alfredo Simon earlier today, but were not able to do so with starter Homer Bailey and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. As a guest on The C Dot Show earlier, Reds vice president Bob Miller (who handles the arbitration cases for the club)…

  4. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 5, White Sox 4: Unbelievable. Chris Perez blows a save in the top of the ninth and the ancient Jason Giambi picks him and the Indians up in the bottom, smacking a two-run walkoff homer. Still life in that old bat. Still life in the Indians, who remain in wild card position. Rangers 3,…

    Ian Kinsler

    Rangers 7, Rays 1: The Rangers finally snap the skid. Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus homered and drove in three runs each to pull Texas back into a tie with Tampa Bay at the top of the wild card standings. Indians 5, Royals 3: Kansas City took a 3-0 lead into the sixth with the Indians…

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

    Sep 1, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Todd Helton

    Long time Rockies first baseman Todd Helton sliced a double down the left field line against Reds reliever Curtis Partch in the bottom of the seventh for his 2,500th career hit. Helton narrowly beat left fielder Chris Heisey‘s throw to second base for the double. There was a brief pause in the game as Helton…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  10. Mike Leake notches unique 10th win as Reds beat Giants

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Mike Leake

    Wednesday’s 8-3 loss to the Reds had to be particularly frustrating for Giants fans, considering that… – Hunter Pence went 5-for-5 and the team as a whole collected 15 hits – The team left 15 men on base, it’s high total in a nine-inning game since 2008 – Chad Gaudin, the club’s best starter of…

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

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Angels 13, Cubs 2: It’s almost as if Josh Hamilton hadn’t totally forgotten how to play baseball or something. Go figure. Two homers and five RBI in this romp. One of his homers was back-to-back with a Pujols home run. First time that’s happened this year. Nationals 5, Phillies 1: The Nats hit four homers…

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

    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…

    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…

    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.

    Johnny Cueto‘s minor-league rehab assignment is over after two starts at Single-A and John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that he’ll come off the disabled list to start for the Reds on Monday.

    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…

  19. Johnny Cueto tests lat muscle with 45-pitch bullpen session

    Apr 29, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    Jay Bruce

    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…

    Adam LaRoche Getty

    According to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com, Adam LaRoche is out of today’s lineup against the Reds due to a stiff back. He has been dealing with the issue over the past couple of days and made an early exit from last night’s 15-0 blowout loss after his condition worsened. It doesn’t sound like a major…

Mark Sheldon of MLB.com hears that the deal doesn’t include a spring training invite with the big club, though he could presumably make his way over if he impresses in camp.
