  • Reds' Rece Hinds: Heading to bench for series finale

    Hinds is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    After opening his big-league career earlier this month by going 11-for-22 with eight extra-base hits (five home runs, two doubles and one triple) to go with two stolen bases in his first six games, Hinds has predictably cooled down. He went 0-for-4 in the Reds' final contest before the All-Star break and has opened the second half by going 1-for-8 with three strikeouts in the Reds' first two games in Washington. Hinds' hot start will likely give him at least a little more leash in a near-everyday role, but his playing time could drop quickly if the contact issues that were present at each of his stops in the minors begin to crop up more frequently in the majors.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Getting day off

    Stephenson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Stephenson went 1-for-6 with a solo home run and two walks while starting behind the plate in the first two games of the series, but he'll be given the afternoon off as the Reds look to avoid a three-game sweep in Washington. Austin Wynns will draw the start at catcher Sunday.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: July power surge continues

    Stephenson went 1-for-2 with two walks and a solo home run in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals.

    Stephenson's third-inning homer was his 11th of the season and fifth in the last eight games. The catcher is batting .308 with a 1.152 OPS over the last 10 contests.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Delivers run, steals bag

    Steer went 1-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Washington.

    Steer delivered a runner in scoring position with a first-inning single to give the Reds an early 1-0 lead. The team's primary cleanup hitter, Steer has a .337/.405/.673 line with RISP and leads the Reds with 61 RBI. After reaching base, he put himself in scoring position with the steal, his 15th in 97 games. That's the same number of steals he had over 156 games in 2023.

  • Reds' Nick Lodolo: Fans eight in no-decision

    Lodolo allowed four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight batters over 6.1 innings in a no-decision against Washington on Saturday.

    Lodolo carried a 4-3 lead into the seventh frame before exiting with one out and a runner on first base. That runner came around to score after his departure, costing the left-hander a quality start and a chance at a victory. Despite that outcome, there were plenty of positives in the outing for Lodolo -- this was his first time exceeding 4.2 innings across his past four starts, and he had much better control after walking four batters in two of his previous three appearances. Lodolo holds a 3.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 89:25 K:BB over 84.2 innings this season.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Not starting against southpaw

    Benson isn't in the Reds' lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

    Lefty MacKenzie Gore will toe the slab for the Nats, so the lefty-hitting Benson will step out of the lineup while Austin Slater covers center field and bats sixth.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Sitting down versus lefty

    Fraley isn't in the Reds' lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

    Fraley will start Saturday's game on the bench with left-hander MacKenzie Gore set to start on the bump for Washington. Spencer Steer, Austin Slater and Rece Hinds will start across the outfield while Fraley rests.

  • Reds' Casey Legumina: Recalled from Louisville

    The Reds recalled Legumina from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

    Legumina allowed two earned runs in two innings during his lone MLB appearance April 22, though he has fared much better in Triple-A since then, posting a 2.78 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across 32.1 innings. He'll now return to the big leagues as bullpen depth to make up for the loss of Brent Suter (shoulder).

  • Reds' Brent Suter: Lands on injured list

    The Reds placed Suter on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a partial tear of his left teres major muscle.

    Suter's shoulder forced him to make an early exit from Friday's contest after just seven pitches, and he'll now be held out through the beginning of August at least. Casey Legumina was recalled from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move.

  • Reds' Austin Slater: Starts against lefty

    Slater started in left field and went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 8-5 loss to the Nationals.

    Slater made his third start since joining the Reds -- all against opposing lefties -- and delivered his first two runs in a Cincinnati uniform. He's 2-for-13 since being acquired from San Francisco. Once TJ Friedl (hamstring) returns from the injured list, the outfield picture will become crowded. The lefty-hitting Friedl typically starts against pitchers of either handedness, so Slater will compete with Stuart Fairchild and Rece Hinds for at-bats.

  • Reds' Jonathan India: RBI, steal in win

    India went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Friday's 8-5 loss to Washington.

    India singled in the Reds' first run then stole a bag in the third inning. The steal was his ninth of the season. India once again batted atop the order, as normal leadoff hitter TJ Friedl (hamstring) remains on the injured list. Friedl could return next week. Eventually, when second baseman Matt McLain (shoulder) is ready to return, Cincinnati manager David Bell will likely need to find a home for India's bat.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Gets start Friday

    Fairchild started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 8-5 loss to the Nationals.

    Fairchild, who put himself in scoring position with a single and a steal, scored the Reds' first run. The theft was his career-high 12th stolen base. Fairchild was activated off the 10-day injured list earlier in the day and was available against Washington left-hander Patrick Corbin. He was an automatic starter against left-handers prior to his injury, but Cincinnati has since added Austin Slater and promoted Rece Hinds, which crowds the outfield's right-handed-hitting options against southpaws. Eventually, TJ Friedl (hamstring) will rejoin the team, perhaps next week, and Fairchild could get further squeezed for at-bats.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Tagged for seven runs

    Montas (4-8) took the loss Friday against the Nationals, allowing seven runs on six hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out three.

    After blanking the Nats through his first three innings, Montas was tagged for four runs in the fourth before giving up a three-run homer to Juan Yepez in the fifth. The 31-year-old Montas has been plagued by the long ball recently -- he's now allowed two homers in each of his last three outings. Overall, the right-hander sports a 4.85 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP and 72:38 K:BB across 18 starts (89 innings) this season. Montas is currently slated for a tough road matchup versus Atlanta in his next outing.

  • Reds' Brent Suter: Exits with injury

    Suter was removed from Friday's game against the Nationals due to left shoulder tightness, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Suter was only able to get through two-thirds of an inning on seven pitches before exiting alongside a trainer. The 34-year-old southpaw may be unavailable for at least a game or two while the Reds determine the severity of the issue.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Not facing lefty

    Benson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals.

    Benson will yield to Stuart Fairchild in center field Friday due to southpaw Patrick Corbin starting for Washington. Benson is slashing .190/.277/657 with 10 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 293 plate appearances this season.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Absent from starting nine

    Fraley is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals.

    With left-hander Patrick Corbin on the bump for Washington, the lefty-hitting Fraley will take a seat. In his place, Austin Slater will bat sixth and play left field.
