Found July 10, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Chris Heisey exited last night’s contest against the Milwaukee Brewers after being hit by a pitch on the elbow by Wily Peralta in the second inning. X-rays taken following the HBP came back negative, but manager Dusty Baker told reporters – including Mark Sheldon of MLB.com – that he doesn’t expect Heisey to play today. "He's going to be sore from getting hit twice in the same arm," Baker said. "Anybody that's been hit on that elbow, that bone, the feeling didn't come back. That's why we took him out. It's a tough place to get hit. There is no muscle. I don't think he's playing tomorrow." Heisey was hit just above his left elbow by a 2-2 pitch from Peralta. It was a 95-mph fastball that left a visible welt on his arm, according to Sheldon, who added that Heisey appeared to be in pain as he went out to left field for the bottom half of the second inning. He was ultimately replaced in the field by Derrick Robinson. It’s poor timing for Heisey, as he was just starting to get into a groove offensively. After spending roughly two months on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, Heisey went 7-for-19 with two home runs in nine games. He’s been seeing regular time in the outfield with Ryan Ludwick’s injury. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Video: Derrick Robinson mistakenly called out trying for inside-the-park home run

Votto fulfills dying Reds fan's wish

A Cincinnati Reds fan who was dying of cancer got to see a final baseball game, with an assist from Joey Votto.

McNeal: Struggling Reds limp to the All-Star break

ST. LOUIS -- That three-team race in the N.L. Central could be down a team by the end of the month. The Reds could be down to the wild-card race by then. A 6-2 victory over St. Dominic grad Johnny Hellweg and the Brewers Wednesday afternoon isn't likely to end Cincinnati's struggles, either. The Reds still have lost 12 of their past 20 games and fallen 4.5 games behind...

Bring on Corky

Everyone wants Corky Miller’s autograph.Ryan Hanigan is suffering from a sore left wrist that was so bad the other day that he couldn’t close his hand.

He wasn’t exactly great at throwing...

Carlos Gomez made a homer-robbing catch so good that Joey Votto literally didn’t believe it

With the game on the line, Carlos Gomez saved Francisco Rodriguez’s bacon by ending the game on this robbery of a Joey Votto go-ahead two-run homer. How good was it? Good enough that Votto literally didn’t believe it. K-Rod was impressed too.
