  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Smacks fifth homer

    De La Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

    De La Cruz provided the lone run for the Reds via a solo shot off Bryce Miller in the top of the second, giving the shortstop five home runs already on the season. Four of those long balls have come over his last 10 games, though De La Cruz is just 2-for-17 (.117) at the plate over his last five. He's also struck out multiple times in three of his last five contests.

  • Reds' Andrew Abbott: Strikes out six in loss

    Abbott (1-2) took the loss against the Mariners on Wednesday, surrendering two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings.

    Abbott was efficient for most of the afternoon, with the exception of the four-seamers he left out over the plate for Cal Raleigh in the second inning and Mitch Garver in the sixth, both of which would end up in the outfield stands. The young lefty hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his first four starts to open the season and actually fanned a season-high six batters Wednesday, though the two home runs he surrendered also marked a season high. Furthermore, Abbott has now gone at least six innings in each of his last two starts and carries a clean 2.70 ERA following the loss.

  • Reds' Ian Gibaut: Return delayed

    Gibaut (forearm) did not make a scheduled appearance for Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday in order to be further evaluated, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Gibaut had thrown 25 pitches in a rehab appearance Tuesday and was scheduled to pitch again the next day. The Reds had targeted April 20 as a return for the right-hander, but manager David Bell said it will likely take longer now. The team will know more after Gibaut visits a doctor, and the pitcher could have his rehab assignment paused.

  • Reds' Santiago Espinal: Starts at third base

    Espinal made a second consecutive start at third base in place of an unavailable Jeimer Candelario (illness) on Wednesday and went 0-for-3 in a 5-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Espinal is 0-for-6 in the two starts and hitless over his last eight at-bats. With a scheduled day off Thursday, Candelario could be ready to go Friday at home against the Angels.

  • Reds' Christian Encarnacion-Strand: Sits out due to illness

    Encarnacion-Strand did not play Wednesday due to illness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Spencer Steer replaced him at first base.

    It had earlier been reported that Encarnacion-Strand was merely resting -- his first day off of the season -- but Cincinnati manager David Bell confirmed the illness. Bell didn't provide specifics on the symptoms but indicated Encarnacion-Strand wasn't feeling well in advance of the three-game series in Seattle.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Covers first base

    Steer started at first base for an unavailable Christian Encarnacion-Strand (illness) in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to Seattle. He went 0-for-3.

    Steer was one of eight Reds in the order to go hitless against Mariner pitching. Elly De La Cruz's second-inning home run off Bryce Miller was the lone offense mustered by Cincinnati. Reds manager David Bell wasn't specific on Encarnacion-Strand's symptoms but mentioned he hadn't been feeling well ahead of the series in Seattle. Steer is 1-for-14 over the last four games but still has a .992 OPS on the season.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Not ready to start Wednesday

    Candelario (illness) remains out of the lineup Wednesday in Seattle.

    He'll give way to Santiago Espinal at third base for a second game in a row while he recovers from an illness. The Reds are off Thursday, so Candelario will have some additional time to shake off the ailment before Cincinnati opens its homestand Friday versus the Angels.

  • Reds' Christian Encarnacion-Strand: Resting for first time in 2024

    Encarnacion-Strand is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Seattle.

    He'll be riding pine for the first time this season while Spencer Steer replaces him at first base and Stuart Fairchild steps in as the Reds' No. 3 hitter. Before an 0-for-4 showing in Tuesday's 3-1 loss, Encarnacion-Strand had delivered exactly two hits in four of his preceding six starts.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Reaches base three times in loss

    De La Cruz went 1-for-2 with two walks and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    De La Cruz drew multiple walks in a game for the first time this season and swiped his seventh bag of the year, which ties him for fourth in the majors early on. He was able to end a mini slump in this one after going hitless in three straight games and is now slashing .274/.357/.565 with four homers, 10 RBI, 15 runs and a 7:23 BB:K in 70 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Lasts just four innings Tuesday

    Greene did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners. He allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over four innings.

    Greene was inefficient in this one, needing 98 pitches to get through four frames. He navigated out of a bases-loaded jam in the third by striking out Mitch Haniger to end the inning, but Greene was unable to escape the fourth unscathed as Jonatan Clase knocked in Mitch Garver with a double. Greene has now failed to reach five innings in two of four starts this year and in those two starts he's issued at least three walks. Still, he's allowed two runs or fewer three times and will take a 4.35 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB (20.2 innings) into his next start, which projects to come against Philadelphia next week.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Scratched with illness

    Candelario was scratched from the Reds' lineup ahead of Tuesday's game versus Seattle due to an illness.

    Candelario was reportedly feeling under the weather Tuesday, so he will sit out while he recovers. Santiago Espinal will enter the lineup as Cincinnati's replacement third baseman and bat eighth.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Bops homer in loss

    Candelario went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-3 loss to the Mariners.

    Candelario, who slumped to start the season, hit safely for a third straight game following a two-day break (including a team day off) from playing. The home run was the second of the season for the corner infielder, whose average ticked up to .190 through 15 games.

  • Reds' Ian Gibaut: Set for another rehab outing

    Gibault (forearm) will make at least one more rehab appearance for Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    This will be Gibault's fifth appearance while out on rehab assignment. The right-hander threw two scoreless innings for High-A Dayton and was moved to Louisville, where he's allowed four runs on four hits over 1.2 innings. He's targeted to return April 20.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Logs fourth straight multi-hit game

    Fraley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

    Fraley was caught trying to swipe a bag after stealing three bases Sunday, but he put his power on display with an RBI double in the fourth inning and a solo homer to right field in the seventh. He's recorded two hits in four straight contests, going 8-for-16 (.500) with seven runs and four RBI over that span. Fraley routinely sits against left-handed pitching, but he's been very productive when in the lineup, slashing .432/.462/.622 with 12 runs, four RBI and four steals through 39 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Frankie Montas: Struggles with control in loss

    Montas (2-2) took the loss against Seattle on Monday, allowing five runs on three hits and five walks while striking out one batter over two innings.

    Much of Montas' troubles were self-inflicted, as he issued five free passes and threw just 34 of 66 pitches for strikes. It didn't help that he was hit hard when getting Mariners batters to swing -- two of the three hits against him left the park. Montas began the season looking great, going 2-0 and allowing just one run over 11.2 frames across his first two starts. However, he's faltered with two straight losses during which he's yielded 10 runs (eight earned) over seven innings. Montas will look to get back on track in his next start, which is tentatively lined up to come at home against the Angels this weekend.
