News and Notes

Getting work in the minors

The Reds had several guys pitch in minor league games on the backfields earlier today. Brandon Williamson, Brent Suter, Alexis Diaz, Lucas Sims, and Brooks Kriske were all on the mound, so keep that in mind when wondering why it may be a few more days than you expected to see some of these guys on the mound.

Reds add to the Spring Breakout roster

Cincinnati picked four more pitchers to add to the Spring Breakout roster. Two of them are expected to pitch on Thursday night (Arij Fransen and Gabe Starks) and the other two (Simon Miller and Dylan Simmons) are expected to pitch on Saturday night. For more information on the four pitchers we’ve got you covered over at RedsMinorLeagues.com.

        One guy will have to sit out every game as a starter at least. Hope it’s not him often.

        CES is the last guy that should sit. He’s hit with power everywhere—will be a 30+hr 100rbi 1.0+OPS guy with 500 ABs.

    I hope it’s not the opening day lineup. India is out of the lead off spot, Benson back to the bottom, Candelario, who still has shown us nothing is too high in the order at this point. I also saw a couple of posts questioning whether Harrison, Ford, or Kemp gets the last roster spot. As expected, Bell once again, feels like he’s dating the head cheerleader.

    • Doug Gray

      He played in the last Reds game, so I would venture to say yes.

    I’ll take a .417 BA from EDLC in the regular season. What about you guys? 😀

  3. VaRedsFan

    I like when India goes to right-center. (at least according to gameday)

    • Melvin

      I think if he’s gong to play 1B would be the best spot.

  4. Melvin

    Lots of Ks for our guys tonight. Nine already.

  5. LDS

    Reds starting pitchers, excepting Martinez, all have ERAs above 4.00 and WHIPs that leave a lot to be desired. Experimentation is good to a point but ST is half over and it’s time to start focusing on being effective. And hitting has been somewhat light as well. The Reds need a quick start to the regular season and a very strong first half. Otherwise, they likely don’t make the playoffs.

    • Melvin

      At least they played their “regulars” tonight. The guys just need to start hitting and “gelling” together. You’re right. A fast start could make the difference. We haven’t had one in a long time.

    • TR

      I’m also a believer that fast out of the gate, certainly by the end of May, sets the team up for what happens in the playoffs.
