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.

While the Reds rotation seems like a good bet to...

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...
