Cincinnati Reds RP Caleb Cotham (shoulder) will make at least five rehab appearances for Class A Pensacola. He is currently on the disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation and will remain on his rehab assignment through at least July 11.
Fantasy Tip: Although Cotham was in the mix to receive save opportunities earlier this season, he shouldn't be owned in any fantasy format at this point. The 28-year-old right-hander was 0-3 with a 7.40 ERA through 23 appearances before landing on the disabled list and RP Tony Cingrani has pitched well over the last month while serving as the Reds' primary closer.

Cincinnati Reds RP Caleb Cotham (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Tuesday, May 31. The move is retroactive to May 29.
Fantasy Tip: Cotham has had a nightmare season for the Reds in a historically bad bullpen. He has a 7.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 24 1/3 innings this season. Cotham doesn't deserve to be owned anywhere at this point.

The Cincinnati Reds bullpen set a major league record by allowing a run in 21 straight games after RP Caleb Cotham gave up an RBI infield single to San Francisco Giants 2B Kelby Tomlinson Tuesday, May 3. They went into the game Tuesday with a 6.54 ERA and had given up 69 runs in 95 innings with 54 walks, the most in the majors. Their relievers had allowed 22 home runs in 27 games.
Fantasy Tip: It's been very ugly. Fantasy owners of Cotham and Hoover haven't been able to watch. Searching for saves in Cincy has proved more detrimental than helpful, so it's probably best to avoid this situation altogether. With Hoover and Cotham struggling the most, Ross Ohlendorf and Tony Cingrani may be next in line for save chances, if you're feeling brave and are desperate for saves.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds RPs Tony Cingrani, J.J. Hoover and Caleb Cotham will be employed in a closer-by-committee approach moving forward, according to manager Bryan Price.
Fantasy Tip: Cingrani likely has the most fantasy appeal at this point because of his strikeout upside. The converted starter owns a career 11.4 K/9 through 52 appearances as a reliever. Cothmam and Hoover should also be owned in the majority of leagues, and especially if you're chasing saves.

Updating a previous report, the Cincinnati Reds acquired RP Caleb Cotham, SP Rookie Davis, 3B Eric Jagielo and 2B Tony Renda from the New York Yankees in exchange for RP Aroldis Chapman Monday, Dec. 28.
Fantasy Tip: J.J. Hoover has five saves during his career and posted a 2.94 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and a 7.3 K/9 last season, and he stands as the current favorite to win the closer role for 2016. Tony Cingrani is a potential wildcard, and it isn't out of the question that someone else will emerge leading into the season. The prospects acquired by Cincinnati don't project to make a fantasy impact next year.
