Posted January 18, 2013 on AP on Fox
Logan Ondrusek and the Cincinnati Reds have agreed to a two-year contract. The team announced the deal Thursday night. Ondrusek, a right-handed reliever, had filed for salary arbitration after going 5-2 with a 3.46 ERA and two saves last season. Teams and players are set to exchange proposed salaries Friday. Cincinnati still has six players in arbitration: pitchers Homer Bailey, Mat Latos, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon, and outfielders Shin-Soo Choo and Chris Heisey. The 6-foot-8 Ondrusek is 15-7 with a 3.45 ERA in three major league seasons, all with the Reds.

by: Jon Davis Staff Writer @I_Bleed_RedsRed #11 Ryan LaMarre OF @RyanLaMarre4 on Twitter Next on the list we have 6-foot-2, 205-pound outfielder, Ryan LaMarre -- who the Reds drafted out of the University of Michigan in the second round in 2010.

Phillips playing for Team USA; Votto, Cueto may be staying home

The rosters for the World Baseball Classic were released yesterday, and Brandon Phillips will be playing for Team USA.

They are set up to contend every year for the foreseeable...

Joey Votto, is the MVP back at first base?

In less than a month the Reds will begin spring training. There are a ton of questions around this team but one of the most important is the health of Joey Votto’s knee. Thinking back to early last season, Votto was on his way to an MVP type season and then injured the knee on a slide into third base. Two surgeries and a rough rehab later Votto was back for the Reds but never quite...

2012 Season in Review: Chad Rogers

Coming into the 2012 season, there were two things most people knew about Chad Rogers: He was once bitten by a shark and that he was a solid relief prospect. After 2012 he was still once bitten by a shark, but he was now an intriguing pitching prospect with a chance to start. The Reds sent Rogers to Bakersfield and the starting rotation for the Blaze. He made his first start of the...

15 bold expectations for the Reds in '13

I will be the first to admit, the outlook for the 2013 version of the Cincinnati Reds looks pretty rosy. The organization's recent history of success has dramatically raised expectations around the Queen City. And they appear to have the pieces in place needed to reach or exceed them. With that being said, here are 15 expectations I have for the Redlegs in 2013. Disclaimer...

Highlighting Reds prospects in 2013: Amir Garrett

by: Jon Davis Staff Writer @I_Bleed_RedsRed #12 Amir Garrett LHP @Amir_Garrett Next on the list we have Amir Garrett, a prospect who is every bit the definition of that word.

Scott Rolen, Dodgers? Really? C’mon. Really?

Just because you have all the money in the world doesn’t make you the smartest person in the room sometimes.   Take the Dodgers, for example.   Last May the Dodgers were bought by a Chicago-based consortium called Guggenheim Baseball Management for a record $2 billion. Injected with a seemingly bottomless well of cash, the [...]

Thursday news and notes

My favorite things about Reds.com right now is without a doubt, the countdown to spring training. We are currently sitting at 25 days until pitchers and catchers report. Can. Not. Wait. John Sickels will occasionally post player comments from his book. Yesterday he posted Billy Hamilton as one of his comments. Here is a peak: I have been watching baseball for 35 years and I have...
