Once this weekend’s three-game series vs. the Pirates concludes, the Reds’ remaining 12 games of 2017 will all be against contenders. Although manager Bryan Price plans to have his team do all it can to win to maintain the integrity of the races, his club plans to take a look at some young starting pitchers.
Before the Reds took batting practice on Friday, the six players on the club with at least 20 home runs this season were gathered together for a photo. It’s the first time it’s happened in club history and just the 25th all-time in the Major Leagues.
The Pirates have entered a nose-dive in September, and encountering the Reds — who have owned Pittsburgh in 2017 — won’t help. Cincinnati supported pitcher Homer Bailey with four home runs en route to a 4-2 victory on Friday at Great American Ball Park.
The Pirates often preach that prospect development is not a linear process. For proof, look at the growth of right-hander Chad Kuhl heading into Friday’s series opener against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.
The Reds have used the closing weeks of 2017 to identify young starters that can be penciled in for next year’s rotation.

Cautioned by their manager not to get caught looking ahead to a huge weekend series at Wrigley Field, the Cardinals took care of the task at hand on Thursday by securing a series victory over the Reds with a 5-2 win. Luke Weaver shined over six innings, while Jose Martinez and Tommy Pham keyed the […]

Eugenio Suarez’s grand slam may have been the final blow in a five-run fifth inning for the Reds that sent the Cardinals to a 6-0 loss on Wednesday night, but it was a play and pitch not executed that pushed the inning deep enough for things to unravel.
An offense that tallied runs in six different innings one night earlier couldn’t dent a single frame on Wednesday, and it cost the Cardinals critical ground in a pair of postseason races.
Two rookies square off in Wednesday game, as Tyler Mahle of the Reds, still seeking his first big league victory, takes on the Cards, who will be fronted by one of their top prospects, Jack Flaherty.
Jesse Winker, the Reds’ No. 5 prospect, was reinstated from the disabled list before Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals. He got the start in right field and hit leadoff.
Matt Carpenter reached base five times, Yadier Molina knocked in three runs and Paul DeJong finished a triple shy of the cycle as the Cardinals topped the Reds to remain two games back of the Cubs in the NL Central Division. Zack Cozart had a home run in the first for the Reds, his 20th […]
