Reds sign Independent League MVP Art Charles

The Cincinnati Reds have signed the Independent League Player of the Year in New Jersey Jackals’ first baseman Art Charles. The Jackals play in the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, which in shorthand means that their players are minor leagues who are unaffiliated with major league clubs and are thus eligible to be signed.

Confidence could lead Schebler into starting spot

Though rebuilding periods are painful to endure for clubs, they do serve a purpose that can yield a few positives. In this case, Cincinnati let Scott Schebler struggle and work through a slump with regular at-bats. Going into the 2017 season, the right-field spot could be Schebler's.

Reds’ offseason to-do list

The Cincinnati Reds ended the second-half of the season just one game under .500. Their cumulative record for 2016 is irrelevant due to all the players associated who won’t be a factor in 2017. Therefore, it’s reasonable to expect a similar kind of play. Would a .500 Reds team next year really surprise anyone? It shouldn’t, but it probably will. There’s still work to be...

The Reds Actually Did It

Some time ago, in another InstaGraphs post, I mentioned something that could potentially become true about the 2016 Reds. We spend a lot of time writing about things that could potentially become true, and inevitably, a lot of those paces fall off. There are reasons for that, and that would be a subject for another post. But the 2016 numbers are official now, dammit. There’s no...

Joey Votto Is Playing With His Food

Hi! You read FanGraphs, so you probably like Joey Votto. As such, you’re probably aware that, two seasons in a row, now, Votto has gone crazy in the second half.

This year, Votto is again running a second-half wRC+ in the neighborhood of 200. Once...

End of season post-mortem: 2016 Cincinnati Reds

With preseason expectations to be the worst team in baseball, the Cincinnati Reds have to be at least somewhat happy with at least not being that. Unless, of course, they really wanted that No. 1 draft pick. There isn’t much to get excited about with a 62-84 season (although they’ve already won enough to avoid a 100-loss season, a real possibility at the start of the year)...
