Catcher Hanigan doesn't mind lack of attention

GOODYEAR, Ariz. Ryan Hanigan should feel like the guy posing for a group photo and after it is snapped everybody remembers everybody in the picture but Hanigan. "Who is that guy? His face is familiar, but I can't place him." That's a little bit because the focus is on rookie and No. 1 draft pick Devin Mesoraco this spring when the talk is about catchers for the...

Reds split a pair in split-squad doubleheader

2012 projections: Mike Leake

Leake is looking down the barrel of another promising season Most players who experience success in their rookie seasons take a step back in their sophomore campaign -- that wasn't the case for Mike Leake in 2011. After sporting an 8-4 record and 4.23 ERA in 22 starts during 2010, the right-hander continued to progress in his second year in the bigs. He posted a 12-9 tally...

Chapman back in pen after Bray injury

MARYVALE, Ariz. There is no manager's office in Maryvale Baseball Park, so Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker conducted a media interview Thursday morning sitting on a bench in the shower room. Fortunately, nobody turned on the faucets, which was apropos because recent events would tend to rain on his parade. His bullpen is suffering an assortment of aches and pains, mostly...

Reds outlast Brewers in slugfest

After getting blanked by the Padres on Wednesday, the Redlegs (3-2-1) offense returned with a vengeance on Thursday en route to an 8-6 victory over Milwaukee (2-2).

Wednesday news and notes

Now that we have some games under way, the All Questions Answered threads will probably be every few weeks instead of just about every week. They were mostly just space filler in a long off season where there are only so many things to write about. Here is how the prospects performed in the game on Tuesday afternoon: Kristopher Negron went 0-1. Henry Rodriguez went 1-2 with a walk...

Cincinnati Reds fantasy preview

The Reds surprised most of the baseball world in 2010, winning the NL Central before getting swept out of the playoffs by the Phillies. They were a young team on the rise, but many thought that they were perhaps a year early. Hopes for the Reds were high in 2011, but they didn't follow those hopes with very many meaningful moves. Instead, they were hoping their young core would...

Reds 5, Royals 1

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen fouled off some tough pitches from Vin Mazzaro before hitting an RBI single on Friday. ''I will take at-bats like that all year long,'' Rolen said. All year long? The Reds would like that very much, too. Rolen's health is a big key for Cincinnati, which beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Friday. He played in only 65...

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Scott Rolen singled in a run to help a Cincinnati Reds split squad beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Friday.
