Todd Frazier

  1. Scott Rolen is still unsure if he wants to play again or retire

    Jan 3, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Every few weeks we do an update on Scott Rolen that basically says he’s still trying to decide if he wants to play in 2013 or retire, and apparently the 38-year-old remains undecided. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Rolen “has been in periodic contact” with the Reds, who despite being committed to Todd Frazier…

  2. Scott Rolen has approached the Reds about coming back

    Dec 12, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Last week Scott Rolen’s agent said his client needed more time to decide if he wants to come back. He’s apparently decided. From Danny Knobler: Rolen has now suggested to the Reds that he might want to go to spring training and give it another try, according to sources, and the Reds would be more…

  3. Reds sign Jack Hannahan to one-year, $2 million deal

    Dec 12, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Jack Hannahan

    Jack Hannahan has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Reds, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Hannahan drew a surprising amount of interest considering he’s a 32-year-old career .234 hitter who’s stretched as a traditional utility infielder because he’s barely played any shortstop, but teams apparently loved his defense at third base…

  4. Shin-Soo Choo heads to Reds, Trevor Bauer lands with Indians in three-team mega-trade

  5. Scott Rolen still not sure if he’ll retire or play an 18th season

    Dec 5, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Every few weeks someone checks in with Scott Rolen to see if he plans to play in 2013 or retire after 17 seasons in the majors, and the 37-year-old third baseman still isn’t sure. His agent told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer that Rolen needs more time to make a decision. Fay speculates that…

  6. Scott Rolen is still weighing a retirement decision

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:22 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    ESPN’s Jayson Stark has the pre-turkey day scuttlebutt: On the one hand, Rolen had a pretty miserable NLDS against the Giants in October. On the other, he hit a pretty terrific .297/.376/.473 with five homers in 165 at-bats after the All-Star break. He’d seem to be quite an asset starting twice per week and teaching…

  7. Todd Frazier “penciled in” as Reds’ starting third baseman

    Nov 19, 2012, 12:18 PM EDT

    Todd Frazier, Josh Thole

    Todd Frazier spent this year filling in for an injured Scott Rolen at third base and an injured Joey Votto at first base, but with Rolen either retiring or signing elsewhere as a free agent the Reds’ third base job is his for the taking in 2013. “Right now, Frazier would be penciled in as…

  8. Bryce Harper edges Wade Miley to win NL Rookie of the Year award

    Nov 12, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper Getty

    Bryce Harper was named the National League Rookie of the Year this evening by the BBWAA, beating out finalists Wade Miley and Todd Frazier. He received 16 first-place votes compared to 12 for Miley, three for Frazier and one for Wilin Rosario. It was a very close vote, as Harper and Miley were ultimately separated…

  9. Mike Trout is going to win the AL Rookie of the Year tonight

    Nov 12, 2012, 8:15 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    At least you have to assume he is. I mean, if there was ever an award that you’d bet your first born on, this would have to be it, right?  NL Rookie of the Year is a little less certain.  I’d go with Wade Miley, but there are arguments for Todd Frazier and Bryce Harper…

  11. Miguel Cabrera named Player of the Year by his peers

    We have to wait until next week for the awards voted on by the writers, but the Players Choice Awards were announced earlier tonight on MLB Network. Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera was voted as the Player of the Year by his peers, beating out finalists Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. So, um, cue the…

  13. Shaky Rolen should take a seat in Game 4

    Oct 9, 2012, 9:39 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    As costly as it was, Scott Rolen‘s second error of the NLDS, which scored the go-ahead run as the Reds lost in 10 innings, isn’t reason alone to stick him on the bench against San Francisco’s Barry Zito in Wednesday’s Game 4 in Cincinnati. But it doesn’t need to be. In Todd Frazier, the Reds…

  17. Homer Bailey throws a no-hitter against the Pirates

    Homer Bailey AP

    UPDATE: He did it! Homer Bailey has done it. He threw a no-hitter tonight against the Pirates as part of a 1-0 win. Bailey struck out pinch-hitter Brock Holt swinging to begin the ninth before getting pinch-hitter Michael McKenry to pop out to left field for the second out. He then Alex Presley to pop…

  18. The Brewers die a very appropriate death

    It has to be over for the Brewers now. They just lost 2-1 to the Reds, dropping them four back in the wild card race pending the outcome of tonight’s games.  It was a thin hope they had before — probably no real hope — but even the optimists have to jump ship now. The…

  19. Reds beat Cubs to become first team to clinch playoff berth

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto

    Trotting out a lineup that included just one regular, the Reds beat the Cubs 5-3 on Thursday to complete a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field and become the first team this year to clinch a playoff berth. The Reds got Johnny Cueto his 18th victory despite fielding a lineup that included Miguel Cairo at first…

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  22. Joey Votto returns to Reds lineup for first time since July

    Sep 5, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Houston Astros

    Joey Votto returned from the disabled list yesterday, but wasn’t in the Reds’ starting lineup and didn’t appear in the game off the bench. That all changes this afternoon, as Votto officially completes his comeback from knee surgery by being in the lineup for the first time since July 15. It’ll be interesting to see…

  23. Joey Votto activated from DL, but not in Reds lineup tonight

    Sep 4, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Joey Votto Getty

    After having his return from knee surgery pushed back by one day Joey Votto has been activated from the disabled list, but he’s not in the Reds’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Phillies. Normally teams wouldn’t activate a player and then not play him because it would require sending someone else to the minors,…

  24. The Reds are just toying with the rest of the league

    Aug 29, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Miguel Cairo

    That’s my feeling anyway. Manager Dusty Baker went so far as to start Miguel Cairo at first base Wednesday, yet the Reds beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 to complete a three-game sweep in Arizona. Cairo, who entered the game with a .168/.198/.264 line in 125 at-bats this season, went 0-for-4. It should be noted that this…

    Joey Votto kicked off his minor-league rehab assignment by going 0-for-1 with a walk yesterday at Single-A, saying afterward: “It was good, but I still have a ways to go.” He’ll be back in Dayton’s lineup today and if all goes well Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Votto will likely come off…
