Reds | Billy Hamilton injured

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 13:16:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (groin) left the game Saturday, April 18, with an apparent right groin injury while running to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Skip Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) would fill in if Hamilton misses time. Schumaker doesn't have a lot of luster on FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:07:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is still not ready to play on a regular basis, so owners should avoid him for the time being. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in his last three starts and may not be the best option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Brandon Phillips batting fourth

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 07:58:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is batting fourth in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has not driven in many runners at this point but does have nine hits in his last five games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Phillips as a starting option.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco available to pinch hit

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:00:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) said he is not ready to catch but is available to pinch hit Friday, April 17. He has an impingement in his left hip and is trying to avoid a stint on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to avoid Mesoraco in all fantasy formats until he returns and plays a full game. It is somewhat concerning that he is attempting to play through an injury, however, it may also be a sign that his return is imminent. Continue to check back for updates on his return timeline. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has four singles over 13 at-bats this season spelling Mesoraco, and Pena should be viewed as a low-end fantasy option in all formats.

Reds | Rafael Soriano not an option for CIN

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:51:54 -0700

Free-agent RP Rafael Soriano (Nationals) has not been contacted by the Cincinnati Reds at this time, and his agent has not contacted the team, according to general manager Walt Jocketty. Jocketty said he believes it would be too expensive to sign Soriano.

Fantasy Tip: Soriano is the top reliever available, but the Reds to not appear interested in him at this point. Soriano may need to become a setup man for a team if he is not able to find a closer job. Soriano likely would not have a lot of fantasy value unless he is a closer.

Reds | Brandon Phillips able to play

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:53:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (head) returned to the lineup Wednesday, April 15, against the Chicago Cubs one night after leaving the game due to dizziness.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips had a pair of singled in four at-bats and is hitting .324 this season. At just $2,300 (or 4.6% of cap) he is a solid value play in FantasyScore.

Reds | DL not ruled out for Devin Mesoraco

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:53:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remained in Cincinnati, missing his third straight game Wednesday, April 15, against the Chicago Cubs. Manager Bryan Price said Mesoraco would be re-evaluated Thursday, April 16, and did not rule out placing Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: With Mesoraco sidelined it is Brayan Pena ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) seeing a majority of the starts with Kyle Skipworth as the backup. Pena is hitting .308 and is a solid low-end FantasyScore play until Mesoraco can return.

Reds | Homer Bailey expected to start Sat.

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:52:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey (forearm) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, April 15, and he is expected to start Saturday, April 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Since the start of the 2012 season Bailey is just 4-5 with a 4.52 ERA in 11 starts against the Cardinals with an opponent batting average of .301, highest of any team he has faced (min. 12 innings). FantasyScore owners would be well advised to avoid this difficult matchup.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:12:54 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup for the game against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, April 15. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely will be the starting catcher until Mesoraco is able to return. He has picked up three hits in his last three games and could be a starting option on FantasyScore for owners looking to save some money at the position.

Reds | Joey Votto swinging hot stick

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 10:47:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto entered the day Tuesday, April 14, third in the National League with eight RBI, and his slash line sat at .345/.424/.759. Manager Bryan Price said Votto looks like the Votto of old before he dealt with injuries. "I noticed he just seems to be more athletic," Price said. "It could be he's just feeling better. If not 100%, very close to it. He's been very agile, moving around the bag and running the bases. He looks like an even younger version of himself."

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had two more hits Tuesday night to raise his early-season average to .375. He looks to be back to full health and primed for a big 2015 season. Even against Chicago Cubs lefty starter Travis Wood Wednesday, Votto makes for a strong FantasyScore play while he's in the midst of a hot streak.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco out a week or less

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:42:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) could be out a week or less the team hopes. "We have to see how he comes through the treatment," manager Bryan Price said. "I think he was a bit better (Tuesday). Certainly Dr. (Tim Kremchek and (physical therapist) Christy (Sweeney) back in Cincinnati will have a lot more to say about it, but at least the initial report was it wasn't something that was going to necessitate a disabled-list deal."

Fantasy Tip: Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is filling in behind the plate, but he has little luster on FantasyScore. Mesoraco is a daily consideration upon his return.

Reds | Brandon Phillips passes concussion test

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:29:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (head) passed a concussion test Tuesday, April 14, and he might play as soon as Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: At $2,300 (or 4.6% of cap) Phillips is a tempting play in FantasyScore, but give him a game to prove his health before plugging him back into your lineup.

Reds | Brandon Phillips departs early

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:05:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (head) left the game Tuesday, April 14, against the Chicago Cubs after feeling lightheaded.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips was involved in a collision while running the bases. Itís uncertain if he will be forced to miss time, but if he does it would be Skip Schumaker ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) likely drawing into the starting lineup.

Reds | Brayan Pena continues to start

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 18:37:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena made his third straight start Tuesday, April 14, against the Chicago Cubs in place of the injured C Devin Mesoraco (hip).

Fantasy Tip: Pena is a solid low-end FantasyScore play at just $1,600 (or 3.2% of cap) as long as he is starting, as he has some occasional pop and he will save you valuable salary to spread across more valuable positions.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco unlikely for DL

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 18:36:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) missed another game Tuesday, April 14, and manager Bryan Price said he is dealing with "a bit of soreness." Mesoraco continues to rehab in Cincinnati, and the team recalled C Kyle Skipworth from Double-A Pensacola to back up C Brayan Pena until Mesoraco is ready. However, Price reiterated that a stint on the 15-day disabled list is unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: The catcher might be sidelined until at least Friday for the start of the series against the St. Louis Cardinals. FantasyScore owners will want to forget about Mesoraco ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Until he returns it is the Brayan Pena ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) show behind the dish, and he is a solid low-priced option.
