Teahen, 31, has not appeared in the major leagues since 2011 and was hitting just .211 for Triple-A Reno. The seven year veteran will receive some interest as a free agent and should not have to sit out too long before getting another gig even with a .211/.318/.254 line this season. A former first round pick of the Oakland A’s, Teahen is nothing more then minor league depth at this point in his career. He finished the 2012 season in the Washington Nationals system finishing with a .260/.328/.360 line. The Reds attempted to acquire Teahen at the end of spring training but he was unable to pass a physical.

The Reds will be donning camouflage jerseys and hats when they take the field against the Indians on Memorial Day, which believe it or not is next Monday. In fact, all MLB teams will be wearing camo on the patriotic holiday in honor of those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

Diamondbacks right fielder Gerardo Parra is widely known to have one of the best arms in all of baseball. Over the past three seasons, while playing mostly in a part-time role in Arizona's crowded outfield, Parra has totaled nine, 12 and eight assists, with the middle number coming in 2011, when he earned his first Gold Glove.

Despite minor struggles, Aroldis Chapman can lead the Cinncinati Reds to their sixth World Series title this autumn

Surrendering back-to-back solo homers to the Phillies’ Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis, Cinncinati Reds flamethrower Aroldis Chapman blew his second consecutive save opportunity in a 3-2 loss in Philadelphia on Sunday. Converting eight straight chances to open the season, the 25-year-old Chapman (3-1, 2.41 ERA) has struggled in May. Regardless, the 6-foot-4, 200 pound Chapman remains...

Soto Makes MLB Debut

Neftali Soto made an appearance late in the Reds game at Philadelphia for his MLB debut. The plan is for him to stay with the Reds for the remainder of the weekend before Johnny Cueto comes off the DL Monday to take his spot on the active roster. Tony Cingrani did a good job replacing Cueto for six turns through the rotation and will return to Louisville to continue developing as a starter.

Helton: Corbin has best slider I've ever seen

Patrick Corbin has been pretty good this year. The Diamondbacks' young lefty is 7-0 -- making him the franchise's first left-hander to start a season with seven straight wins since Randy Johnson in 2000 -- following a dominant 10-strikeout, three-hit, complete-game win over the Rockies on Monday. Corbin also has a ridiculous 1.44 ERA thanks to nine straight starts of six...

Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten Memorial Player of the Week: Paul Goldschmidt

The next time the man known as “Bear Jew” has a week like this, I hope he’s not owned by the guy who is hot on my tail in fantasy baseball. There was no other player who could win the inaugural Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten Memorial award. We won’t do an honorable mention today partly because we’re at work, and partly because Bear Jew really did that good of a job steamrolling...

Leake's pitching, Wright's E send Reds past Mets

Phillies Win on Walk Off Heroics from Galvis and Kratz

It was shaping up to be another shut out. For seven innings,Reds starter Homer Bailey kept the Phillies off the scoreboard. It wasn't quite as pathetic as it sounded. They were hitting the ball hard, they were just going into gloves. Still, it was starting to get ugly. The unsung...
