Just working with Fassero in the bullpen, I think we’ve got things pretty straightened up,” Stephenson said after Monday’s start, a 4-3 win over Mississippi. “The last [session...

When the Cincinnati Reds drafted Nick Howard out of Virginia in 2014 they stated that they wanted to move him back to a starting pitcher, where he pitched as a sophomore at Virginia before moving into their closers role as a junior. Some questioned the move because as a starter the year before his stuff wasn’t nearly the same as it was when he was closing. Keith Law in particular...

When the Cincinnati Reds traded for Eugenio Suarez over the winter it was hailed as he 9th best move of the offseason by Dave Cameron. It seemed that the acquisition of a young shortstop with big league service time, who outperformed Zack Cozart at the plate in 2014, was a sign that the team had found the guy to replace Cozart if he couldn’t get things turned around and rather...
Sunday evening the Cincinnati Reds set off a chain-reaction of moves throughout the farm system.
Starting in Dayton the team has placed Ty Washington on the disabled list with a shoulder sprain and replaced him on the roster with Paul Kronenfeld. Washington was out to a good start for Dayton. The infielder was hitting .292/.353/.415 with four steals.

Cincinnati is said to be bearing down on Benintendi, who is from a Porkopolis high school. Harris and Cincinnati’s...
The Cincinnati Reds top position prospect coming into the season was universally accepted to be Jesse Winker. If you asked again today I don’t think that you’d get a different answer from just about anyone, but that’s not to say that Winker isn’t having some struggles in 2015.
What makes Winker such a strong prospect is what he’s been able to do at the plate. He’s shown...

Earlier this afternoon Bryan Price announced that Raisel Iglesias would remain with the Cincinnati Reds and pitch out of the bullpen for the time being. C. Trent Rosecrans from the Enquirer had this, as the first source that I saw report from:
Iglesias will stay with #Reds, Bryan Price said. in KC he’ll join bullpen. After off days, they’ll decide whether he or Lorenzen in...
