Throw that one in the overflowing “throw it in the forgettable bin” bin. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game We learned over the weekend that Devin Mesoraco won’t be ready to join the Opening Day roster for the Cincinnati Reds since he’s simply not yet in game shape, which means Rule 5 Draft selection Stuart Turner has a phenomenal chance of making the team...

The Reds are counting on Raisel Iglesias to be a main cog in the back end of their bullpen. But Iglesias hasn't thrown a pitch in a spring game since March 14 because of a bone bruise on his right elbow.

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.

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. But while his hips and shoulder have repeatedly kept him out of the Cincinnati Reds lineup for the bulk of 2015 and 2016, being ready for Opening Day in each...

For every Scott Feldman, there is a Joey Votto. And lots of running.
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias may miss Opening Day as a result of two injuries which were suffered while taking a shower.Originally, Reds manager Bryan Price wouldn’t divulge to reporters the nature of Iglesias’ hip and elbow issues, simply stating the injuries, were “sustained at home.” But Iglesias later revealed that he sustained the injuries after falling in...
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...

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...

The World Baseball Classic is underway, and so far it has been a lot of fun. Team Israel began 3-0 to advance to the next pool, Cuba and Japan cruised as they typically do, the Dominican Republic looked unstoppable in a win over Canada and the United States won on a walk-off Friday.One of the many pleasures of the WBC is checking in on players you once knew and loved whom you haven’t...
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. In Price’s view, “throwing is the only way for them to learn the craft.” For that reason, they should...
