MIKE LEAKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Leake remains himself as another year begins

GOODYEAR, AZ. -- He speaks softly, slips around the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse with a light foot, almost unnoticed, pretty much speaking only when spoken to first. Isn't that the way with most Quiet Assassins? Nearly every year Mike Leake is The Forgotten Man, a guy who goes about his work day like an invisible man. He is a wisp. "He doesn't puff his chest out and need to be noticed...

Leake tries for career-best stretch

The last time Mike Leake won three straight starts, he followed it up with possibly the worst outing of his career. He probably doesn't have to worry about such drastic struggles against San Diego. The right-hander will try to win a career-best fourth straight start Tuesday night when his Cincinnati Reds face the Padres at run-starved Petco Park. Despite their offensive deficiencies...

Leake in full command for Reds

CINCINNATI -- No one needed to tell Mike Leake what was needed from him. The Reds' right-hander watched the bludgeoning the rest of the pitching staff took Friday night at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays. He knew the bullpen could use a day of rest because of the long week it has had. Knowing a situation is one thing. Going out and doing something about it, especially when you...

Mike Leake, the tough luck loser

CINCINNATI -- If Mike Leake were any less of a man he would knock on Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty's office door, peek in and say, "Trade me now. Please, trade me now." That isn't going to happen despite the fact Leake is this year's tough luck and hang with 'em story for the Reds. Much has been said and written about Johnny Cueto's amazing run of pitching, only a...

Unassuming Leake keys Reds win

CINCINNATI -- Mike Leake is an unassuming figure. Put him up against the likes of a Jonathan Broxton and, well, one is a little more intimidating than the other. If people haven't figured it out yet, it's not good to judge Leake no matter where he is on the baseball field. Leake's performances on the pitching mound and in the batter's box Tuesday were instrumental in the Reds ending...
