Both Joey Votto and Joe Mauer dealt with fallout from injuries, with Votto not having effective use of his lower half, and Mauer possibly dealing with lingering effects of a concussion sustained in 2013.

Thoughts on Reds Raisel Iglesias’ first appearance

When the Cincinnati Reds signed right handed pitcher Raisel Iglesias late last summer he didn’t head out and begin pitching right away. He took some time off before heading out to the Arizona Fall League to make seven appearances.

Zack Cozart Named Reds Starting Shortstop

When the Cincinnati Reds traded for Eugenio Suarez this off-season, there was an immediate sense that the plan was to name Suarez the starting shortstop. That speculation was quickly put to rest when Reds manager Bryan Price said the plan was to continue forward with Zack Cozart as the starter at shortstop. Cozart had about as dismal an offensive season as one can have when he...

The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide and Draft Pack, with two great draft day tools, are here! Get your copies today! Johnny Cueto won me a ton of money last year.

Nick Travieso grabbing attention early on in spring training

Saturday afternoon saw Cincinnati Reds 2012 first round pick Nick Travieso throw live batting practice. Things didn’t start out as well as he’d have liked, but he turned it around quickly and finished strong. Reds manager Bryan Price was impressed with the session, particularly with the control that Travieso was able to show. He’s a physical guy who’s throwing at the bottom...

Leake remains himself as another year begins

GOODYEAR, AZ. -- He speaks softly, slips around the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse with a light foot, almost unnoticed, pretty much speaking only when spoken to first. Isn't that the way with most Quiet Assassins? Nearly every year Mike Leake is The Forgotten Man, a guy who goes about his work day like an invisible man. He is a wisp. "He doesn't puff his chest out and need to be noticed...

Newcomer Byrd knows Reds looking for more than offense

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Marlon Byrd knows the Reds traded for him because they think he'll bring them more than just another run producer in left field. Cincinnati is hoping the 14-year veteran also helps with a clubhouse that's still got a lot of young players. Byrd notes that he's been demoted, suspended and traded, so can help everyone learn from his experience. The Reds got Byrd...
