Greg Reynolds has cleared waivers since his start with the Reds and resumed his fine season with Louisville last night, picking up a win from tossing seven scoreless innings. The Reds AAA rotation has turned over with a couple of promotions from AA and Reynolds remains the first one to call if they need any more rotation help in addition to Tony Cingrani.

Putting the pressure on Ludwick

The Reds were pretty smart about whom they sent out to Reds Day at King’s Island. The attendees, like Cingrani here, were the ones who performed the best most recently and therefore least likely to draw scorn.Yesterday was Reds day at King’s Island. It seems like every year that they have this event it coincides with the team foundering. To Reds’ fans’ credit, I only saw...

Mike Leake on Cardinals: 'They have our number'

The Reds don't play on Monday and that is probably a good thing after Sunday's monumental beatdown at the hands of the rival Cardinals. All in all, Reds pitching allowed 19 hits and 15 runs while the offense struggled to muster any kind of serious threat (outside of a two-run homer from Zack Cozart). The loss was every bit as brutal as it sounds and it effectively sent...

Reds minor league player arrested and charged with assaulting government official

Reds minor league pitcher Daniel Tuttle has found himself in trouble, again. On Friday, Tuttle was arrested in Randolph County, N.C. and charged with four counts of assault on a government official, and one count each of second degree trespassing, assault on a government official inflicting serious injury, and attempting to break and enter. The 22-year-old is currently being...

Reds' Mesoraco earns praise from Johnny Bench

CINCINNATI Johnny Bench was watching a Cincinnati Reds game on television recently, a game during which catcher Devin Mesoraco hit home runs and Bench tweeted: Devin will bat clean-up before his career is over.Coming from the Vincent Van Gogh of catchers, the Ludwig Beethoven of catchers, the Albert Einstein of catchers, that was quite the compliment.And Mesoraco saw it.I did see...

Reds take a slide in updated power rankings

The Reds haven't been playing very good baseball recently and perhaps this is what led to them sliding three spots in the latest edition of MLB Power Rankings from ESPN. Cincinnati ranked No. 11 this week after dropping two out of three in San Diego and getting absolutely pummeled by the rival Cardinals over the weekend. The offense has been stagnant, the starting pitching...

Reds receive recognition in Baseball America's 'best tools' post

Baseball America recently asked various major league managers to vote for the best players from each league based on a variety of categories. On Tuesday, the results of those votes were revealed, and a handful of Reds players received recognition. Joey Votto took home the prize for "Best Strike-Zone Judgement," and finished runner-up to Giants catcher Buster Posey...

Time to put up or shut up for Reds

by: Dan Howard Staff Writer I’m writing this from the point of a passionate Reds fan who is deeply disturbed over the events of the past weekend, allow me to explain. The definition of a coward is a person who lacks the courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things. What I saw this past weekend was baseball’s version of cowardice. The St. Louis Cardinals pillaged...

You can’t win ‘em all

OK, I understand that the Reds aren’t going to win 162 games this season. And I realize that a loss is a loss no matter how much you lose by. But this series against the Cardinals has me wanting to dig a hole and hide. The Reds may well make it into the postseason thanks to the two wildcards, but it’s hard to hope for much more than that when they get demolished by the Cards...

Monday news and notes

What will Billy Hamilton's role be with Cincinnati if he is called up in September?

Reds bats wake up to take down Cards 8-3

Confidence was something both the Reds and Jack Hannahan could use on Saturday -- and it was something they both got in the first inning on Saturday as the Reds third baseman had a two-run two-out single that gave Cincinnati a lead en route to a 8-3 victory over St. Louis. For the second straight night the Cardinals got on the board in the first inning but this time they were limited...

Preview: Cards hope to end road trip on an up note

Different forms of clutch hitting have determined the winner in each game between the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals. With Mike Leake and Lance Lynn pitching, that will likely be the case again Sunday when the NL Central rivals conclude their series. St. Louis (64-45) was the first to find its hitting stroke as the two squads chase Pittsburgh in the Central, going 5 for...

Cingrani stands tall against Cardinals pressure

CINCINNATI The Elias Sports Bureau figured out that if the St. Louis Cardinals were to go hitless in their next 100 at-bats with runners in scoring position they would still lead Major League Baseball in that category. They could go 0-for-200 and still lead the National League. Suffice to say, the Cardinals put a lot of pressure on opposing pitchers and that pressure gets to a...

Recap: Cards score early, often in 15-2 victory over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) Matt Carpenter broke his 0-for-23 slump with a bases-loaded double during the Cardinals' decisive rally, and St. Louis ended a tough trip on the upswing by beating the Cincinnati Reds 15-2 on Sunday.The Cardinals went 3-8 on a trip that included seven straight losses - four of them in Pittsburgh, allowing the Pirates to overtake them for the NL Central lead. Even...

Yeah, it’s over

I’ve always tried to remain objective when writing about my favorite team on this blog. If anything, I want to be the voice of reality to whoever reads my thoughts on the Reds. I’m never overly optimistic, and a lot of times I lean towards pessimism; like most people do when things are going really bad. The Reds were embarrassed and beaten soundly by their hated rival the St...

Athletics-Reds Preview

While they remain in prime position to make the playoffs, the Oakland Athletics and Cincinnati Reds haven't played well lately. Considering their success against the NL this season, back-to-back interleague games could be what the A's need to get on track, while the Reds look to end their struggles versus the AL. Cincinnati hosts Oakland for a two-game set beginning Tuesday...
