Red Hot Mama:
Ryan Ludwick was sent out on rehab assignment with the class A Dayton Dragons yesterday while they played the Lansing Lugnuts. Ludwick was the DH and had three plate appearances. He popped out, walked, and singled. Nice that he’s trying out all the possibilities. Perhaps tonight he could try out that home run muscle.
Ludwick has been out of the major league line-up since Opening Day. We may finally get him back in a couple more weeks.
Don’t overdo it, dude.
Zack Cozart went 4-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader against the Giants on Tuesday, but he wasn’t feeling as great about that as he should have been. Instead, he was pulled before the game was over with stiffness in his left hip. He did pinch hit (or “pinch struck out” as it were) in the second game, but he wasn’t in the lineup at all yesterday.
Cozart is listed as day-to-day.
Ryan Hanigan was looking good to come back to the Reds and relieve Corky Miller of the limelight behind the...
BEST OF MAXIM
This week we will take a look at third baseman Tanner Rahier and relief pitcher Abel De Los Santos.
The Reds have tapped into the Dominican Republic once again by signing 19-year-old pitcher Luis Tejada to a $600,000 signing bonus. This is according to a report by Ben Badler of Baseball America.
Tejada had previously inked a deal with the Atlanta Braves for $125,000, but that contract fell through after Major League Baseball discovered the southpaw lied about his age, and subsequently...
Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...
Mike Leake is unexpectedly unbeatable on the road.
Chad Gaudin's winning streak, however, may be more surprising.
Leake looks to continue his mastery outside Cincinnati as the Reds attempt to solve Gaudin and re-establish their success against the San Francisco Giants in the finale of this four-game set Wednesday night.
Leake (9-4, 2.79 ERA) is tied with Mat Latos for the team...
News of Ryan Braun's suspension has sparked a lot of conversation around the league with players and coaches expressing their opinion on the matter. This includes Reds skipper Dusty Baker and former MVP Joey Votto. Both sounded off in a recent column written by John Fay.
"You hate to see it happen," Baker said. "We thought it was over the last time this investigation...
This is from a Cincinnati Reds discussion forum I visit frequently to check the pulse of things. The discussion thread is titled “We have to talk about Corky”.
Reds fans are starting to echo our same point about Corky Miller from a while back – we assumed it would be his final big league stint – and now that festered splinter is back. Here are their mortified responses.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mat Latos threw 7 2-3 innings and the Cincinnati Reds got home runs from Jay Bruce and Xavier Paul to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Thursday night, ending the NL West leaders' six-game winning streak.
Latos (10-3) allowed two runs -- one earned -- and eight hits with four strikeouts en route to his first victory at Dodger Stadium after going 0-5 with...
Shin-Soo Choo is a career .289 hitter and bats leadoff for a playoff contender. But on Thursday night, he fell victim to two of the oldest tricks in the book, making the Reds-Dodgers game look like something out of "The Bad News Bears."
The trouble for the Cinicannati center fielder started in the fourth inning, as he fell victim to a baserunning ploy by Los Angeles rookie...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Even after his Reds fell behind early for a change, the way Cincinnati had been slugging it out against the San Francisco Giants left manager Dusty Baker confident his club would still pull off a win.
Too many missed chances did in Cincinnati this time in a 5-3 loss to the Giants, and the Reds settled for a split of their traditional doubleheader Tuesday night...
A pair of fans made their way onto the field during the second game of a doubleheader between the Reds and Giants at AT&T Field Tuesday night.
Another fan sitting in the front row on the first base side received an up-close view of all the action that took place when one of the intruders was brought down by security.
While the other fan was being tracked down near the infield...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds found just about every way to beat the San Francisco Giants this season after falling in frustrating fashion to the World Series champions last October.
Mike Leake led the latest -- and perhaps wackiest -- performance Wednesday night, pitching six-plus innings of wildly effective ball in Cincinnati's 8-3 victory over San Francisco.
The Reds split a doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
But when you lose Game 2 in a long frustrating fashion, the split doesn't feel so even.
"Long day," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Real long day."
The Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 in Game 1 and fell 5-3 in Game 2 before a crowd of 42,310 at AT&T Park.
In Game 2...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta Braves right-hander Humberto Carpio and Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yoel Noel have each been suspended 50 games for violations of baseball's minor league drug program.
Carpio and Noel were each penalized Friday after testing positive for anabolic steroids. Carpio tested metabolites of Stanozolol and Noel for metabolites of Nandrolone.
Both players were...
