Shower tumble leaves Raisel Iglesias with sore elbow

Shower tumble leaves Raisel Iglesias with sore elbow

Showering is hard, y’all. Some soreness in the back of prized Cincinnati Reds reliever Raisel Iglesias was enough to give us some pause. However, it was news that he was to be sidelined with elbow soreness that got our sugars up. Y’see, it’s a delicate time to talk elbows around Reds fans. Homer Bailey has seemingly been through three of them since we last watched him pitch, with each and every prognosis he receives somehow continually degenerating into goo within a few days of the initial revelation. Then there’s Anthony DeSclafani, whose elbow recently went through the runaround...

Bronson Arroyo leaves game after being struck in face with throw

Bronson Arroyo leaves game after being struck in face with throw

What’s a ‘healthy pitcher,’ anyway? That Bronson Arroyo is even a legitimate contender for a spot in the Cincinnati Reds starting rotation is borderline catastrophic in its own right. Arroyo, who recently turned 40 years old, hasn’t thrown a big league pitch since 2014, and had a little thing called ligament replacement surgery in his elbow since that point. Alas, elbow injuries to Anthony DeSclafani and Homer Bailey have thinned the ranks in camp - ranks that entered camp already thinned after the trade of Dan Straily - and two innings of Cactus League action suddenly thrust Arroyo...

Worst Case Rotation

Worst Case Rotation

Anthony DeSclafani and Homer Bailey are both not going to be ready to go when Opening Day begins. This is not ideal. Correspondingly, I have been tasked* with writing a worst-case scenario for the rotation. And that’s harder than you think. * Editor’s note: who’s the dumb editor that assigned this topic to Jason? csd …

Which of the minor leaguers should make the roster?

Which of the minor leaguers should make the roster?

The Cincinnati Reds rotation is in shambles, at least from the standpoint of what was expected as the team entered February. Homer Bailey went down with surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow and is out until about June. Monday we learned that Anthony DeSclafani will miss at least the next four weeks before …

The Purest Form of “Sorting”

The Purest Form of “Sorting”

2017 is supposedly the year for “sorting.” Veterans have been traded for young, controllable talent. This is the year when Reds management begins to sort through the youngsters at all levels of the organization. The major-league team has nine roster spots open, when you consider Homer Bailey and Anthony DeSclafani will open the season on …

The Case for the Bullpen as the Reds Fifth Starter

The Case for the Bullpen as the Reds Fifth Starter

Desperate times call for desperate measures. As the 2017 season draws near, the Reds starting rotation is filled with question marks. Dan Straily, one of the team’s most reliable starters from last season, was shipped to Miami in January. In February, Homer Bailey underwent a third surgery on his elbow. The recovery will likely keep him out until June. Over the weekend, fans received news that Anthony DeSclafani would likely start the season on the disabled list due to recurring elbow soreness. Zach Buchanan reported that DeSclafani is set to undergo further tests on Monday morning that...

Rookie and Bronson and Homer

This piece by Zach Buchanan in the Enquirer makes me like Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey, and Rookie Davis even more than I already did. And I was already a huge fan of Arroyo and Bailey. That’s what led them to have a long conversation soon after pitchers and catchers reported in the middle of February. …

Cincinnati Reds links - Remain calm, all is well edition

Thursday links! There are two or nine of you that woke up this morning and said to yourselves "the gawdang Cincinnati Reds are 0 and 6 in Spring Training and I just can’t take it anymore, gawdangit." In a fluster, you put your boxer shorts on backwards, didn’t notice until you got into your car to go to work, and then proceeded to get stuck in morning I-471 traffic just as your check-engine light came on. "I swear to freakin’ Homer Bailey, man. I picked this car up three years ago on a four year lease and then the front axle broke, the back axle broke, the power steering went out,...
