Cincinnati Reds news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 14:56:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bruce is up to 21 homers and 73 RBI, and there's no doubt the Reds are trying to showcase him for a trade. With numbers like that, someone is sure to bite. Stay tuned to see who.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart is having a sneaky fantasy season with 53 runs, 15 home runs, 41 RBI and a .265/.317/.471 slash line. He's a viable starter in most fantasy leagues, but you'll want to sub him out where you can Sunday. Peraza is a highly regarded youngster, but he isn't receiving the playing time to carry value as anything more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. View Peraza as a potential flier in daily contests Sunday, though.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce is up to 20 homers, and he remains a must-start in all formats thanks to his power potential.
Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:02:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is riding a modest five-game hitting streak, and he has seven steals over the stretch. When he is reaching base at a decent clip, he can be a fantasy stud in both season-long and DFS formats.

Fantasy Tip: Votto has raised his average from .252 to .271 since the All-Star break. Take advantage of his hot streak in DFS formats.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey made two starts in 2015 before he was injured and needed Tommy John surgery. Given that he pitched well for Cincy previously, including a no-hitter, Bailey should definitely be monitored in the majority of leagues. There's no guarantee he'll return favorable results for however much he pitches in 2016, but he's worth stashing now in cavernous mixed and NL leagues. Monitor his progress everywhere else.

Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani's stock has risen considerably since returning from an oblique injury that sidelined him the first two months of the campaign. He's 5-0 in eight starts with a 2.50 ERA, while registering a solid 40-to-9 K/BB ratio across 50 1/3 total innings. The right-hander would get a sizable boost if dealt to Texas, as although Arlington doesn't feature favorable conditions for pitchers, it's not that different from Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, plus he would be in a much better position for wins.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey is getting closer to making it back to the Reds after missing more than a year due to Tommy John surgery. He'll be someone to consider right away, considering the notable success he had in Cincinnati before going down with the injury, but probably should be scouted first by owners in case he endures struggles upon his return.

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with his 16th home run of the season Wednesday, July 20, versus the Atlanta Braves. He finished the game with a run scored and two RBI, and he also drew a walk.
Fantasy Tip: Votto has been enjoying a scorching July, now hitting 18-for-45 (.400) for the month with a pair of homers and 10 runs scored. As expected, the former NL MVP has recovered nicely from a disastrous start and is always worth starting every time he's in the lineup.

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani upped his record to 5-0 after beating the Atlanta Braves in his start Wednesday, July 20. The right-hander churned out eight strong innings, yielding only two runs on eight hits, including a solo homer. He also struck out three and walked none.
Fantasy Tip: DeSclafani is someone whom fantasy owners should be looking at, as he's now hurled quality starts in seven of his eight assignments since making his season debut after missing the first two months with an oblique issue. He's worthy of being added in deep mixed leagues and if this keeps up, he'll be a valid option in standard formats, too.
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:40:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Suarez's average has really taken a hit, and his lefty-righty splits are pretty drastic. He has a .293-7-17 line in 82 at-bats against lefties, and he has a .210-9-25 line in 248 at-bats against righties. He faces right-hander Lucas Harrell today, but his spot in the lineup gives him some luster at the right price.
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:40:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peraza is hitting just .237 with 10 steals on the year. He's a much better option in traditional leagues because you can't bank on steals in DFS. The matchup against Lucas Harrell is decent, though, if you want to use a low-end flyer.

Fantasy Tip: Moscot holds a career 6.82 ERA over eight starts since first getting called up last season. He has a long way to go before becoming fantasy relevant, but hopefully the right-hander is able to come back strong from this. Unfortunately, he'll probably miss the entire 2017 season.

Cincinnati Reds SP Cody Reed recorded the first quality start of his career Tuesday, July 19, against the Atlanta Braves. He fired six innings and scattered just five hits, while yielding two runs (zero earned). The southpaw also struck out five and walked two.
Fantasy Tip: Well, it took him six big league outings but Reed was finally able to rack up his first quality start here, and he did it in fairly impressive fashion. The potential is there, as Reed gained recognition for his strikeout ability in the minor leagues, and it's been prevalent thus far since being called up, as he now has 34 strikeouts in 30 2/3 total innings. He's worth being monitored for that reason alone, though owners should also keep in mind that Cincinnati is 0-6 in his starts.
Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:18:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hamilton doesn't hit for a high average, but he racks up plenty of steals for fantasy owners in rotisserie leagues to justify using him.
