Cincinnati Reds: Examining Adam Duvall’s breakout season

Going into the 2016 season, Adam Duvall of the Cincinnati Reds was viewed as nothing more than a platoon player who would share the left field duties with Scott Schebler. Duvall quickly changed that perception of himself, as he wound up winning the job outright by late April, proving he could hit both lefties and righties with equal effectiveness. Now that he’s been given the opportunity...

Reds new-look rotation issuing early returns

At 6.17, the next-worst ERA in the National League was 4.83, making the Reds noticeably worse than any other staff. But that was then. It’s been a different story since.

WATCH: Reds’ Eugenio Suarez has no idea he fielded a groundball

In the second inning of the Rangers-Reds game on Tuesday night at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas’ Adrian Beltre hit a groundball to the left side that took a funny hop. Cincinnati third baseman Eugenio Suarez still was able to stay with the hop and field the ball… but he had no clue that the ball was in his glove. It resulted in a pretty embarrassing moment for Suarez,...

Scouting the Reds’ Cody Reed Before His Debut

When Cody Reed takes the mound on Saturday he’ll likely be wearing the same pair of rec specs he’s worn since his sophomore year of high school. Reed donned the glasses after he had a hard time picking up signs from his catcher — especially during night games — as a freshman and has continued to wear them as a pro. Though, when Reed is pitching well, it’s opposing hitters...

Projecting Reds Lefty Cody Reed

Collectively, Reds pitchers have been all sorts of terrible this year. Their team ERA (5.45) ERA and FIP (5.62) are both easily the worst in baseball, as injuries to Homer Bailey, Raisel Iglesias and Michael Lorenzen have left their rotation painfully thin. It’s about to get better, though, as top prospect Cody Reed is set to make his big-league debut tomorrow. Since we’ve likely...
