Jay Bruce will be just 26 years old on April 3 and he already has two 30-homer seasons and 134 homers for his career. His runs, home run, RBI, and stolen base totals have gone up every since over the last four years, and he’s taken on an increasingly important role in the Cincinnati lineup. [...]

The Reds were victorious over the White Sox yesterday, winning 7-3. Johnny Cueto started for the Reds and wasn’t that great: 2 runs (earned) on 3 hits in 4.0 innings of work. Fortunately for him, the offense came to play. Shin-Soo Choo went 4-for-4 with 2 runs scored. Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with 1 RBI on a solo shot and 3 runs scored.
The Reds have today...
The end is near for our eight-part series of predictions for the Reds in 2013. We've covered several aspects of the everyday players from the big league club, but also of high importance is the future of the team. Even with the trades of the past couple years, the Reds still have a decent farm system teeming with prospects ready to make their mark on baseball. You can probably...
The Reds had an off-day yesterday, but the battle for the fifth rotation spot never sleeps, so they played a split squad game with Aroldis Chapman and Mike Leake going head-to-head.
This video appeared on Cincinnati.com, along with a nice little insider-style tidbit.
The Reds host the Dodgers tonight at 10:05 p.m. Mat Latos will be starting for the Reds.

Cincinnati lifted their Cactus League record to 3-11 after racing past the split-squad Chicago White Sox, 7-3, on Sunday. Shin-Soo Choo and Todd Frazier led the offensive charge with seven hits between them. The Reds enjoy an off day on Monday before welcoming the Dodgers to Goodyear Tuesday evening.
Until then, here is a mixed bag of Reds news and notes...

Kyle Lotzkar remains a wild card because of his inability to stay healthy.
This came out last week and I missed it somehow. Kyle Lotzkar actually tore his labrum last season in his shoulder, but it didn’t require surgery. However, as a result, he will be used as a reliever moving forward in his career. Last year was the first time he had really made it a full season without an...
Shin-Soo Choo got four hits and Todd Frazier homered Sunday as the Cincinnati Reds beat a Chicago White Sox split squad 7-3.
Frazier had three hits and Cesar Izturis drove in two runs.
Reds starter Johnny Cueto was erratic in his second spring start. He walked three and hit another, but completed four innings and gave up just two runs.
Chicago starter Gavin Floyd allowed four...
Reds left-hander Aroldis Chapman is destined to remain a closer, at least in the opinion of one rival scout who saw him start a minor-league game on Monday.
“I hope they do start him, but they’re crazy if they do,” said the scout, who works for another National League club. “It’s Joba Chamberlain all over again.
“His velocity dropped off in the second inning...
There are a lot of things on tap for today that are worth talking about, so let’s jump right in.
SABR held their Analytical Conference last week and have started adding podcasts from the different forums/discussions/presentations. While I have probably listened to 6 hours worth of presentations, the one that I want to point you guys to is the Player Development Panel. It is just...

Once a Red, always a Red. Isn't that how the saying goes?
Although none of these players are currently in the Reds organization, they were at one time, and if you're anything like me, you're probably curious to know how they're doing.
With that being said, here is a spring update on some of the notable ex...
One year ago multiple players stepped up with surprising performances to help the Reds win 97 games. One disappointment was rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco. He’s still figures prominently into the Reds future plans and the way he’s hitting in spring training gives reason to think that he’s ready to leave his 2012 campaign in the rear view mirror.
