Which players are missing from the rosters?

We now have all of the minor league rosters for opening day. We know some of the guys that are injured and w know most of the guys who have been released. That leaves us with the assumption that several guys are battling injuries of some kind and are remaining in Arizona for the time being. Let’s take a look at which pitchers are missing in action for now: Dan Langfield Ismael...

Reds send ten to minor league camp

The Cincinnati Reds have made their first roster cuts of the spring. Minor League camp officially begins tomorrow with everyone having to report on the minor league side. Juan Duran was optioned to Pensacola and Yorman Rodriguez was optioned to Louisville. That doesn’t necessarily mean it is where they will begin the season, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that were the case...

Ismael Guillon clears waivers, remains a Red

Earlier this month the Cincinnati Reds signed RHP Burke Badenhop and to create room on the 40-man roster the team designated Ismael Guillon for assignment. He cleared waivers today and remains in the organization. The Reds also extended an invite to spring training for Guillon. He’s coming off of an up and down season in 2014. He was strong in the first half with the Dayton Dragons...

2014 Season Review: LHP Ismael Guillon

After finishing an up-and-down 2013 season with a fantastic month of August, Ismael Guillon returned to Low-A Dayton to begin 2014, in search of more consistent command and production. There was some reason for optimism, as Guillon’s short professional career somewhat resembles the last few years for the San Francisco Giants; both perform well in even numbered years. The young...

The Cincinnati Reds made several moves on Saturday, with the bigger two news making ones being the signing of RHP Burke Badenhop to a big league deal that could be a 2-year contract and the counter move to that which left the Reds deciding to designate Ismael Guillon for assignment to clear a roster spot for Badenhop.

Cincinnati Reds designate LHP Ismael Guillon for assignment

The Cincinnati Reds signed right handed reliever Burke Badenhop to a big league deal today. That led to them needing to clear a 40-man roster spot for him and the Reds chose a curious option by designating left hander Ismael Guillon for assignment. Guillon really struggled in his second half after a promotion to Bakersfield in 2014 where he had an ERA well over 6.00. His strikeout...

Which Reds starters have the top groundball rates?

To win a baseball game a team needs to score more runs than the opposing team. Everyone knows that. The easiest way to score a run is by hitting a home run. It only requires one event, unlike every other way to score which requires at least two. Pitchers that tend to limit home runs also tend to be successful. There are several ways pitchers can limit home runs. The first, and most...

Updates on Ismael Guillon and Jon Matthews

After reading the rules 10,000 times and asking others and getting different answers I used Redsfest to talk with Cincinnati Reds Director of Player Development Jeff Graupe to get an answer to the question on whether or not left handed pitcher Ismael Guillon gets a fourth option year. I had been of the belief that he did based on my interpretation of the rules but others had said...

Cincinnati Reds State of the Farm: Starting Pitching

To view all articles from the State of the Farm Series you can click here. The rotation has been a strong point for the Cincinnati Reds for quite a while now, which is refreshing to say after a decade long stretch of maybe having one or two solid pitchers and three guys who probably wouldn’t start for any other team in the game. While the Reds rotation seems like a good bet to...

Who will the Cincinnati Reds call up in September?

September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule. The fun part for people like you and I who follow the minor leagues so much is that we get to see new faces come up and maybe even get some playing time after the minor league season is over.

Who will get the call to start for the Reds on Thursday?

With the postponement of the Reds and Rockies game over the weekend, it set up a situation where the Reds are going to need another starting pitcher for the game on Thursday at home against the Braves. Obviously the first thing to look at when trying to determine who will get the call is to look at the 40-man roster, since those players won’t require a roster move to call them...
