Bailey returns to mound, Reds lose to Cardinals 5-2

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Homer Bailey may not be at 100 percent just yet, but he was at least happy to be back on the mound. The Cincinnati right-hander made his season debut following surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon, pitching into the sixth inning Saturday as the Reds lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 5-2. Bailey gave up five runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. "Early on, I thought...

Why isn’t Sam LeCure with the Cincinnati Reds?

When the Cincinnati Reds designated Sam LeCure for assignment late in spring training it shocked just about everyone outside of the organization. Fans and media alike seemed to all think his spot was locked up, especially after posting a 3.24 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 8.1 innings during the spring. It seemed that the Reds weren’t alone as every team in baseball passed on his services...

Reds’ Phillips Passes Concussion Test

Heading into the 2015 season, if one word could sum up the key to success for the Cincinnati Reds it would be health. The Reds had a pretty dismal 2014 season as Joey Votto played in 62 games with a knee injury and Brandon Phillips missed some playing time with a broken bone in his right hand. So far, so good, minus the lack of Homer Bailey. Tuesday night provided a scare for Reds’...

Devin Mesoraco Watch - MRI on Hip

View image | The Cincinnati Reds might be without catcher Devin Mesoraco for a while, if a MRI on his hip reveals any damage.  He sat out Sunday's game, and most people thought it was a routine rest day, but it turns out to be injury related.  With Matt Wieters yet to return from TJ surgery for the Orioles, Yan Gomes landing on the DL and potentially Mesoraco...

Cincinnati Reds’ Billy Hamilton, 100 Stolen Bases?

By Anthony Weber As a minor league player in the Cincinnati Reds organization, Billy Hamilton during the 2012 season accomplished a feat that made himself a recognizable name at all levels of baseball.  Despite having never made a major league roster, all MLB pitchers began to dread the thought of seeing Hamilton leadoff first base. During the 2012 season, playing in both the Class...

Raisel Iglesias Impresses, but Questions Remain

When the Reds signed Aroldis Chapman out of Cuba, a brief attempt was made to make him a starter in the minors, but in the majors, he has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen. Raisel Iglesias, a fellow Cuban import who has been ticketed by some for the bullpen, has already made one more start […]

Billy Hamilton’s Reverse Lineup Protection

You’d think that here in 2015, alongside our flying hoverboards and pill-based meals, we’d have finally eradicated the myth of “lineup protection.” The idea that having a dangerous hitter on deck would give the pitcher incentive to challenge the current batter with hittable pitches lest he walk him and put a man on for the better […]

Cincinnati Reds CF Billy Hamilton is a Base Stealing Maniac!

When the Reds called Billy Hamilton up from the minors last year they knew what they were getting--one seriously fast dude. He proved that last season when he stole 56 bags for the Reds, but he is off to an incredible pace to this season. After four games the speedster has seven stolen bases in seven attempts.You could say he is pretty good at it.via Cut4Read more »

Votto's 2 homers lead unbeaten Reds over Cardinals

  With Joey Votto playing like an MVP again, the Cincinnati Reds have stayed unbeaten. Votto hit a pair of two-run homers - the strongest indication yet that he's fully back in form - and Todd Frazier had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly on Friday night, keeping the Cincinnati Reds undefeated with a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds are 4-0 for the first time since 2011...

Joey Votto homers twice as Reds edge Cardinals 5-4

As the Cardinals and Reds opened up a three-game weekend series on Friday night in Cincinnati, Jason Marquis made his first since Major League start since July 2013, also coming against the Cardinals (while with the Padres).It was safe to say this start was better, making his Reds debut and coming off of Tommy John Surgery.

Month of April Key for Reds

With the Cincinnati Reds playing a total of 23 games in the month of April, 22 of those 23 games are played against NL Central Division opponents. They are scheduled to play every team within the NL Central at least one series in April and will play the Cardinals, Cubs, and Brewers in both a home and away series.

Fresh off an opening sweep, the Cincinnati Reds are relying on timely hitting and solid pitching to keep things rolling against the defending Central Division champions.

Billy Hamilton leads Cincinnati Reds to blazing fast start with sweep

Is it too soon to make any long-term statements about the 2015 season? More than likely, as less than a week into the season so much can and will change. Think Adrian Gonzalez is going to keep his 200+ home run pace? Of course not. Are the Washington Nationals going to stay near the bottom of their division? Definitely not. So what can you really make out of the Cincinnati Red’s...

State of the Reds’ Intriguing Rotation

Last week, I previewed the Reds lineup and what you might be able to expect, from them this season. Even more difficult to project, however, is their rotation. With the news that Raisel Iglesias will be the fifth starter for the Reds and that Michael Lorenzen was sent down to the minors, the picture has become less blurry but is still far from clear.
