Savvy Axelrod has impressed Reds in two starts

CINCINNATI -- Dylan Axelrod's first two innings didn't foretell of a very long or very successful afternoon. It took him 58 pitches to dispatch of the first nine Chicago Cubs he faced and although he had kept the Cubs off the scoreboard he had to work extra to do so. Axelrod's day lasted just five innings but they were five shutout innings as he earned his first win with...

Let’s Watch Aroldis Chapman and Javier Baez

Prospects are babies. They’re eagerly anticipated, they’re evaluated by their ceilings, their arrivals are memorable and frequently painful, and these days they’re traded for goods less than ever. They continue to be interesting for a handful of months, but then they start to develop into more fully-formed people, and the magic of limitless possibility disintegrates. […]

Price sees throwback style in current state of baseball

CINCINNATI -- Manager Bryan Price and his staff thought they were prepared for the debut with the Chicago Cubs of Cuban defector Jorge Soler. They had done their research, checked their scouting reports, did all their due diligence. Then, on Wednesday night, in his first major league at-bat, Soler exploded a 425-foot home run. And on his third at-bat he lined a single to left field...

Prospect Watch: Nick Howard sets a career high in strikeouts

Tucker Barnhart continued his stretch of good hitting in a Louisville win last night as he went 2-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The catcher is now hitting .347 in the month of August and .314 going back to July 1st. The strong second half is a good turn around for Barnhart, who struggled in the first three months of the season, hitting .211 through June in Triple-A. Infielder Rey...

Reds on the rebound?

The Cincinnati Reds are starting to show signs of life after a brutal two-week funk. Cincinnati tries to keep rolling in Thursday's series finale against the visiting Chicago Cubs, who could get All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo back. The Reds (64-69) have followed a 2-12 stretch by winning three of four after holding on for a 7-5 victory Wednesday. Skip Schumaker went 2 for...

Cubs threaten late, but Reds hold on

Nothing comes easy for these 2014 Reds. It looked like they would wrap up a fairly easy victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. It wasn't easy. But it was a victory. Despite a very tense eighth inning and a fairly tense ninth, the Reds prevailed for a 7-5 win before a crowd of 20,497 at Great American Ball Park. Mat Latos (5-3) went seven-plus innings and allowed four runs...

Billy Hamilton becomes 9th Red with 50 steals

With the expectations for Billy Hamilton's stolen base total in his first full season in the big leagues, his total of 50 after Aug. 27 seems to be rather modest. Hamilton stole his 50th base of the season in the fourth inning of the Reds' 7-5 victory over the Cubs, taking third base without a throw. It's more impressive when put in context -- not the context of the...

Negron's little hustle is big difference in Reds' win

CINCINNATI -- A little hustle will do you well. It did the Reds well Wednesday night. A little hustle was a big difference in a 7-5 victory against the Chicago Cubs. A little hustle by Kristopher Negron set the stage for a four-run fourth inning for the Reds. Too much self-admiration by Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro denied his team a chance at tying the game up in the eighth inning...

Reds Injury Update: Joey Votto, Homer Bailey, Tony Cingrani

As the Cincinnati Reds slim playoff hopes seem to dwindle by the day, first baseman Joey Votto has appeared to have begun resuming baseball activities as he was seen with both his bat and glove.  Though no timetable has yet been set, Votto's presence in the lineup would be a great sight for Reds fans. Votto, who is the centerpiece of the offense, has played in just 62 games...

Pena proud to continue Reds' Cuban connection

CINCINNATI -- Another in the long line of Cuban baseball defectors made his major-league debut Wednesday night. And even though Jorge Soler plays for the Chicago Cubs, Cuban native and Cincinnati Reds catcher/first baseman Brayan Pena's smile was as wide as The Pravado in Old Havana. It is getting to the point where there are so many Cuban players that Major League Baseball should...

Report: Reds to trade at least 1 pitcher this offseason

Reds right-handed pitchers Mat Latos and Mike Leake were both placed on revocable waivers yesterday, according to a report via Twitter from FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal. A trade of either pitcher - for now - is unlikely, according to Rosenthal, but this offseason may be a different story.
