Post Winter-Meetings Outlook: Cincinatti Reds

Don’t be fooled by what seems like a fire-sale, as the Reds are still in the middle of the division race too. Shipping off Alfredo Simon (15-10, 3.44 ERA) and Mat Latos (5-5, 3.25 ERA) may seem like the Reds are giving up on 2015, but it’s quite the opposite. They are simply dealing from an area of strength. First of all, Simon is 33 years old, and yes he was an All-Star in 2014...

2014 Season Review: OF Reydel Medina

In August 2013, the Cincinnati Reds signed Reydel Medina, a toolsy 20-year-old (now age 21) Cuban outfielder, for a cool $400,000. Due to signing so late in the year, he was unable to play until 2014, when he debuted in the Arizona League after starting the season in Extended Spring Training. Perhaps feeling the pressure of signing a lucrative contract, Medina started very slowly...

Where should the Cincinnati Reds look for LF help?

The outfield market in free agency is drying up. Nori Aoki is easily the biggest name available and he’s at best a solid bat that would look much better in center than in the corners given his lack of power. Still, a .350 on-base percentage is incredibly enticing to put in front of Joey Votto, who over the last four years has had one season with someone batting in the two spots...

If Cuba opens up, what does it mean for the Reds?

One of the big news items from yesterday, not just in baseball, was that the United States is easing up the embargo on Cuba. Baseball America’s Ben Badler has an article up looking at what some of it all means for Major League Baseball. The actual trade embargo, the thing that would be required to be removed for players to be allowed to come to America/Canada without leaving Cuba...

Player Profile #179: Devin Mesoraco | C | CIN

Homers, homers, and more homers. That was Devin Mesoraco’s 2014 season in a nutshell. The Reds breakout slugger crushed 25 bombs in just 440 PA and 384 AB, good for rates of one homer every 17.1 PA or 15.4 AB. While the homer total wasn’t elite, the homer rate was. Mesoraco’s 17.6 PA/HR in 2014 was elite  While this chart isn’t very instructive — you knew Mesoraco...

Scouting Cincinnati Reds OF Narciso Crook

The Cincinnati Reds have some interesting prospects throughout the system, but one of the more interesting players is Narciso Crook. He was just 18-years-old during the 2014 season and had played at a Junior College the season before and was drafted by the Reds in the 2013 draft. At a young age he more than held his own in the Arizona Rookie League where he hit .255/.313/.423 over...

Neftali Soto re-signs and other notes

So, apparently I forgot to schedule a post for this morning. It will be pushed to tomorrow. Baseball Prospectus has up an article this week that I thought would be an interesting share on how important a balanced lineup is in terms of having lefty-righty-lefty. It’s a discussion I’ve seen all over the place, especially with the two Reds best hitters long being Joey Votto and...

By trading Latos and Simon, Reds create flexibility for one more run

After the Reds traded Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon on Thursday, you might wonder if general manager Walt Jocketty is beginning a rebuilding project in Cincinnati. At the end of July and when the Reds were officially eliminated from playoff contention, I advocated this team trading off some pieces to get younger and more players under club control, rather than making one last run...

Yesterday was full of action by the Cincinnati Reds. They ended the Winter Meetings with a bang. Or two in this case. The team traded Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon for two players each. Coming back in the trades were two right handed pitchers, a shortstop and a catcher. Right handed pitcher Anthony DeSclafani and shortstop Eugenio Suarez should both be ready to step onto the Reds...
