Reds links and news
Sean Doolittle’s Velocity jumped up
Last night saw Sean Doolittle throw more than a few pitches that were faster than any single pitch he threw during the 2020 season. Tucker Barnhart noted that the fastball had a different gear, and more movement last night.
Not a ton of news and notes for the day.
Sonny Gray to miss some time
The Reds Ace, or one of them at least, was scratched from throwing today. He’s had back spasms. He also had an MRI to check things out on Saturday. He’ll be a week behind as things stand right now. We’ll have more on this in a separate post shortly.
The Reds have claimed Carson Fulmer
Just before 3:30pm Cincinnati picked up right-handed pitcher Carson Fulmer. He was the 8th overall pick in the 2015 draft, but has been designated for assignment by the White Sox, Tigers, Pirates, Orioles, and the Pirates again since July of 2020.
Final: Padres 10 – Reds 4
Things did not go well for Cincinnati in multiple ways in the Reds loss on Sunday afternoon in Goodyear.
Not a highlight, but noteworthy: Tejay Antone left the game between the 3rd and 4th inning as he was warming up. He tweaked his hamstring while warming up on the mound prior to the 4th inning. After the game he said he’s good and that he believes he will make his next start. Antone was charged with three unearned runs and one earned run in 2.2 innings with three walks and five strikeouts. Sal Romano threw 1.1 shutout innings of relief with a strikeout. Nick Lodolo allowed a run in the 9th inning on three hits while striking out two batters.
Nick Castellanos went 2-3 with a double, triple, and he scored two runs. Nick Senzel went 1-3 with an RBI. Kyle Farmer went 1-3 with a double. TJ Friedl was the only backup to get a hit on the day. He doubled and scored a run in the 9th inning.
