Reds can't fit Raburn onto short bench

Because they know their rotation will contain young pitchers without big league track records, the Reds are likely going to have an eight-man bullpen. That means the bench would be limited to four players. That came into play when the Reds told veteran utility player Ryan Raburn on Sunday night that he was being released.

Reds release Ryan Raburn, leaning towards a four-man bench

The Opening Day roster becomes that much clearer. The Cincinnati Reds made another decently significant roster move on Monday morning, as they chose to release veteran bat Ryan Raburn. The 35 year old had shown some decent power during the spring, but it seems the team made the determination that the skillset he brings to the table at this point in his career would be covered by...

That flicks the catching dominoes into action. There's a laundry list of things that Devin Mesoraco has been unable to be a part of over the last few seasons, what with labrum surgery after labrum surgery after labrum surgery.

Sal Romano looking for shot in Cincinnati Reds rotation

Sal Romano is living up to his name so far this spring and adding much needed flavor to a hungry franchise and fan-base (Sal is salt in Spanish). Many Reds fans were quick to criticize the front office for their trade of Dan Straily to the Miami Marlins this off-season, diving a step deeper into the youth movement. It was expected that Homer Bailey, Anthony Descalfani, would headline...

Bronson Arroyo is Rocking Some Vintage Gear

After not throwing in the Majors since June 2014, Bronson Arroyo is back. The onetime (and possibly future?) Redleg isn’t the only relic in Peoria, Arizona for Spring Training. Turns out, Arroyo brought some vintage gear with him as he guns for a gig with the Cincinnati Reds. So, if you’re keeping track at home, Arroyo hit camp with some 1999 Kenny Lofton cleats and the same...

Drew Storen’s Other Hammer

Drew Storen‘s breaking ball is probably a slider, but for the purposes of this piece, let’s imagine he has a curveball. Sometimes called a hammer, or a yellow hammer, the curveball’s downward trajectory and velocity gap off the fastball serves to elicit balls that pound the ground. Storen also has a literal hammer, designed to pound… gloves. Play the game, and you’ve...

It might be surprising, but there’s one thing Joey Votto isn’t good at. Well, to be more precise, there’s one thing that Joey Votto doesn’t think he’s good at. He’s done a lot of work, and it looks like he’s good at it. When it comes to defense, though, he credits the work and not any natural ability. And then last year happened, so maybe he’s not so good at it, after...

Back in December, Bryan Price opined in these pages that young pitchers should throw more, not less. The Cincinnati Reds manager was referring to the minor leagues — youthful amateurs are a different story — which is essentially finishing school for up-and-coming hurlers.
