Reds links and news
The Reds sign reliever Hunter Strickland
Cincinnati picked up reliever Hunter Strickland this morning. He posted a 2.61 ERA last season while pitching for three different teams. As of now the details of his agreement with the club are unknown.
Cincinnati’s pitchers are all dealing with shoulder issues
Ok, maybe not all of them. It was reported this afternoon that Luis Castillo had a sore shoulder that delayed his preparation this spring and that he may not be ready for Opening Day. Mike Minor also was dealing with a sore shoulder, but seems to be back on track. And then there’s Justin Dunn, who was shut down with a shoulder injury on June 17th of 2021 and is expected to miss a couple of months as he continues to recover from that injury…..
Jose Barrero to have surgery
This afternoon Jose Barrero is scheduled to have surgery in order to remove the hamate bone in his left wrist. He’s expected to miss six weeks due to the injury.
Talking with Brandon Williamson
Speaking of the trade with the Seattle Mariners, Brandon Williamson spoke with MLB.com’s Jim Callis out in Goodyear about the trade that brought the Top 100 prospect to the Reds organization and reunited him with his best friend Nick Lodolo. There’s some interesting stuff in there worth checking out.
Game Recap: Reds 10 – Dodgers 8
The Reds offense played long ball, giving away three different souvenirs to Dodgers fans during the game as they held on for a 10-8 victory of the winless team from Los Angeles.
Jonathan India, Kyle Farmer, and Jake Bauers all crushed home runs on the day. India also added a single. Nick Senzel went 2-3 with a run and an RBI. Donovan Solano went 1-2 with a double and a run. But he was also hit by a pitch in the arm and exited the game. An inning earlier it was Mike Moustakas who left the game early after diving for a ball and appearing to injure his shoulder on the play. Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer was the first to report that Mike Moustakas is fine and has full motion in his shoulder.
