Cincinnati Reds 2014 News and Updates
4/15/14 - The Cincinnati Reds offense finally opened up over the weekend, giving the visiting Tampa Bay Rays a 12-4 shellacking on April 13. The Reds got longballs from Joey Votto, his second of the season; Devin Mesoraco, who also launched his second; and Chris Heisey left the yard for the first time this season, pinch-hitting in the bottom of the 8th inning. All of these runs came in support of starter Tony Cingrani, who threw 6 1/3 innings and allowed two runs on five hits while striking out six to notch his first win of the season. This win came after a pair of one-run losses to the Rays over the weekend, 2-1 on April 11 in a duel of aces David Price and Johnny Cueto; and then being shut out 1-0 on April 12. The Reds collected a grand total of eight base hits across the two losses. The Reds, at 4-8 and tied with Chicago at the bottom of the NL Central, haven’t gotten off to this slow a start in almost 20 years.
4/8/14 - Did the Cincinnati Reds leave their offense behind in Arizona? It’s still early (just seven games out of 162), but as a team the Reds are 28th in Major League Baseball in runs scored, 26th in team batting average, 23rd in team on-base percentage, and 26th in team slugging percentage. Through April 7, the Reds are 2-5 and in last place in the National League’s Central Division, having scored 18 runs while allowing 24. Billy Hamilton’s struggles at the plate exemplify the team’s performance as a whole; in 17 at-bats, Hamilton had a grand total of one hit, a double, for a six-game slash line of .059/.111/.118. On the other side of the coin, Ryan Ludwick (.367) and Todd Frazier (.360 and 2 HR) are tearing the cover off the ball. Also encouraging is the performance of Johnny Cueto; in two starts (a loss and a no decision) and 14 innings pitched, he has allowed just three earned runs and struck out 17 as opposed to four walks.
3/31/14 - OPENING DAY: the phrase baseball fans live for, year after year. Until recent years, the Major League Baseball opener was an annual tradition in southwest Ohio, home of the first professional baseball club, the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds had an impressive string of 61 Opening Days scoring at least one run snapped on Monday, falling 1-0 to the defending National League champ St. Louis Cardinals. Reds fans did get some promising news out of the game, as starter Johnny Cueto pitched into the seventh inning, allowing three hits – including what would be the game-winning home run by Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina – and striking out eight while walking just one. The Reds’ offense generated just three hits, all singles; and only Todd Frazier could touch Cards starter Adam Wainwright for more than one base hit (two; Brandon Phillips had the other single). Billy Hamilton was 0-for-4, all whiffs.
3/24/14 - It’s every pitcher’s fear: the smoked line drive up the middle. And that’s exactly what happened to Cincinnati Reds smokeballing closer Aroldis Chapman in a Spring Training game against Kansas City. Chapman suffered a fracture over his left eye and a mild concussion after being hit in the bottom of the sixth inning by Royals catcher Salvador Perez. It's not only Chapman, though; the injury bug continues to bite the Reds. Not only will Chapman be out at least two months (and will he be as effective as he was before?), manager Bryan Price recited a litany of additional injury issues: pitchers Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall will start the season on the disabled list, and starter Mat Latos will likely join them – though Latos was expected to start a minor-league game at the beginning of the week; Johnny Cueto will also take a minor-league start; Homer Bailey is still recovering from a groin injury and will have bullpen sessions at the end of the week; and catcher Devin Mesoraco has an oblique muscle injury.
3/18/14 - Just two years ago in 2012, the Cincinnati Reds had all five of their starting pitchers go through the season without suffering any injuries. What a difference time makes – three starters have suffered injuries just during Spring Training alone, the latest being Homer Bailey, who signed a huge contract just before Spring Training started. Bailey was scratched from a weekend start with a mild groin sprain, although it was something characterized by Reds manager Bryan Price as “not a significant strain.” The Reds’ top returning starter from 2013, Mat Latos, is still recovering from meniscus surgery, but is said to possibly make his spring debut next week; Mike Leake started the spring with an abdominal strain but has made a pair of starts without any further physical issues. The most closely watched of the Reds’ starters, though, has to be Johnny Cueto, who has had injury issues since the first game of the 2012 postseason.
3/11/14 - Cincinnati.com sports writer Paul Daugherty notes that the Cincinnati Reds are “focused on what they have, not what they lost” – in other words, having speedy outfield prospect Billy Hamilton; proven vets Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and Brandon Phillips; and a starting staff that, despite the offseason departure of innings-eater Bronson Arroyo, Daugherty called “among the best three or four in the league.” The big questions for the Reds right now? As Daugherty put it, “If Todd Frazier can…if Ryan Ludwick comes back…” When asked if the Reds are a “complete” team, Votto said, “I think so.”
3/4/14 - In a preview on the Redleg Nation blog, the Reds’ “biggest unknown” for 2014 is the ongoing project that is speedster Billy Hamilton. Blogger Jason Linden said, “Watching Hamilton run is a religious experience” – but notes that Reds fans are “hopeful and nervous.” Hamilton does have some sizable shoes to fill, as 2013 starting center fielder and leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo (now a Texas Ranger) had a slash line of .285/.423/.462 to go along with 34 doubles, 21 homers, and a team leading 107 runs scored. The two big questions regarding the Hamilton project are: How he will do at the plate over a full season, and what kind of defense he will bring to the Reds’ outfield as the starting center fielder. Thus far, Hamilton has appeared in four games for the Reds during Spring Training, hitting .333 (3-for-9) with a double, four runs scored, and a pair of stolen bases.
2/24/14 - Going into the meat of Spring Training 2014, the Cincinnati Reds have very high hopes pinned on speed merchant Billy Hamilton. The young outfielder astounded scouts and Reds front office personnel by stealing 258 bases across the 2011 (103) and 2012 (a minor league record 155) seasons. During a September callup by the Reds in 2013, Hamilton ripped off 13 bases in as many games, while going 7-for-19 with a pair of doubles and nine runs scored. Hamilton had a pair of special tutors last spring – Ken Griffey Sr. and Delino DeShields – and is working extensively this spring with another former Reds superstar, Eric Davis.
2/11/14- A now infamous article broke last Friday, profiling Cincinnati Reds LHP, Aroldis Chapman, the man who threw the fastest recorded pitch in MLB history (105 mph in 2010), and his longing for his old life in Cuba, smoking, sleeping and simply being bored for most days in the offseason. Now, Chapman is ready to brush off that winter slumber and hit the mound again, starting Feb 14, when Reds pitchers report for the first day of Spring Training practice. Cincinnati Reds tickets start at just $5 when they take on the Indians (Feb 27), see if springtime breathes new life into your young closer!
1/27/14 - The Reds are gearing up for life without leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo, but with gifted youngster Billy Hamilton and his world-class speed gear up for the challenge, things are looking more than promising. With new management and a craving for revenge against the Pirates, the Reds could definitely take the NL Central this year! Cincinnati Reds tickets are averaging $38 to see how the team stacks up in Spring Training starting next month.
9/24/13 - The Cincinnati Reds have clinched a playoff spot for the second straight year. But, there is one more accomplishment the Reds would like to achieve before the end of the regular season – a NL Central title. Cincinnati will play one of two divisional rivals still in the hunt to win that title, the Pittsburgh Pirates, in the final series this regular season at Great American Ball Park. The two ball clubs both boast a 90-67 record; both are two games behind current leader St. Louis Cardinals. The three game series is averaging $42 in Cincinnati. Good news for the Reds, Johnny Cueto is back on the mound and if he remains healthy, can greatly contribute to a squad who has seen much of its pitching rotation fall to injury throughout the season.
7/26/13 - Despite losing ace Johnny Cueto to significant time on the disabled list, the Big Red Machine continues to keep the pressure on Central Division rivals St. Louis and Pittsburgh. The heart of the Reds’ batting order – Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, and Jay Bruce – continue to be the engine of the Red Machine; while the pitching slack from Cueto’s injuries has been admirably picked up by Mike Leake, who is quietly having a career year on the mound. Reds fans have come to expect great things from this team, and 2013 will prove to be no exception.
3/26/13 – The City of Cincinnati might as well shut down for Opening Day – Reds fans consider the day an unofficial Holiday and flock to Great American Ball Park in masses. The Cincinnati Reds are the only team who always opens the season with a home game (aside from 1990) and for the first time ever this year, teams (including the Reds) will play interleague games on Opening Day. Demand for Reds tickets is high; it is not surprising than that Reds Opening Day tickets are the second most expensive in the League – only the Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees Opening Day tickets are more expensive. Following the Reds Opening Day series against the Los Angeles Angels, the team will host the Washington Nationals, Philadelphia Phillies, Miami Marlins, and Chicago Cubs in April.
Cincinnati Reds 2014 Season
The Reds haven’t made much noise in the way of headlining news this offseason, with seven of eight position players and four of five rotation players back in the line up with Spring Training looming on the horizon. The Reds obtained Skip Schumaker from the Dodgers
and Brayan Pena from the Tigers
, while trading Ryan Hanigan to the Rays
and losing Shin-Soo Choo in free agency, arguably the biggest change for the team this winter.
Making internal changes, the Red’s promoted Bryan Price (pitching coach) to manager after letting go of six-year manager Dusty Baker. Under Baker, Cincinnati made it to the playoffs three times, but could never reach the NLCS round. On the field, the Reds have enlisted young swift-footed Billy Hamilton to replace Choo as leadoff hitter in center after his promising rookie year. Last season won Cincinnati a trip to the Wild Card round, but the Reds will settle for nothing less than the division title this time around. Can they do it with a new manager? Score some Cincinnati Reds tickets now to see how they do!
Is "The Big Red Machine" back? With the Cincinnati Reds winning the National League's Central Division two out of the last three years, many fans would say, "Yes sir!" Manager Dusty Baker has the boys from Ohio's "Queen City" playing solid baseball, with timely hitting and solid pitching. However, the Reds do have a number of questions going into the 2013 campaign. Are slugger Joey Votto and ace starter Johnny Cueto fully recovered and rehabbed from late season injuries suffered last season? Votto suffered torn cartilage in his left knee midway through last season, and was only moderately effective as a hitter after a short rehab; Cueto strained a muscle in his back just eight pitches into Game 1 of the 2012 NL Division Series, and never returned, while the Reds dropped three straight to the eventual World Series champions from San Francisco. The Reds also acquired outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from their upstate rivals in Cleveland; Choo is expected to hold down center field while up and coming basepath burner Billy Hamilton learns to play the position in what many expect to be his final season in the minor leagues. Finally, can 100-mph fireballer Aroldis Chapman successfully make the transition back to starting pitching, after a 2012 season in which he was one of the dominant closers in the National League? All of this and more remains to be seen as 2013 opens at Great American Ball Park.
How much are Reds tickets? Cincinnati Reds tickets average $65 at Great American Ball Park in 2013. Opening Day tickets are priced from $95 in the Bleacher and View levels to more than $700 for Diamond and Infield Box seats — the Reds host the Angels in an Interleague game on April 1st. In addition to the Angels, this season's Reds schedule features huge series with the three other MLB teams from California: Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants. Reds fans on a budget should head out to GABP to catch Reds games versus the Colorado Rockies, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, and Washington Nationals; Reds baseball tickets to these series average under $45. Also, cheap Reds tickets for most 2013 home games start at $15 or less. Cincinnati's popular on the road too; Reds away game tickets average $70, $5 more than at home.
