Cincinnati Reds links - Waiting for Robert Stephenson

Tuesday links! Today's the day the Cincinnati Reds can officially call up all members of their 40-man roster, and MLB.com's Mark Sheldon caught up with manager Bryan Price to talk about what the final month could provide for the future.  It sounds quite likely that Robert Stephenson will join the team at some point this month (he's the Louisville Bats scheduled starter on Tuesday, for what it's worth), as will Brandon Finnegan, the highest rated on-paper prospect the Reds received in the Johnny Cueto trade.  Whether or not Jesse Winker gets the call is probably the biggest question, since...

Cincinnati Reds links - Looking at September Call-ups

Monday links! Over the weekend, the Cincinnati Reds announced that they'd start a rookie pitcher on Monday against the Chicago Cubs instead of starting a rookie pitcher on Monday against the Chicago Cubs.  Michael Lorenzen will return from the Lousiville Bats and take the mound against the upstart baby bears, and he'll do so fresh off a AAA stint that was about as dominant as you could hope for.  His strikeouts were way down, but hopefully he learned enough from the Johnny Cueto School of Just Barely Hitting Bats To Induce Weak Contact for the Reds stellar defense to compensate for the...

Reds at Brewers, Game 3: Preview and Predictions Thread

Cincinnati Reds @ Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, August 30, 2015 2:10 PM EDTMiller Park John Lamb vs. Wily Peralta The Reds will take another step towards finishing the death march which has been the 2015 season. With 2 games left before September call-ups, the Reds will still see what they have in their cupboard of players with major league contracts. John Lamb makes his 4th start since coming over to the Reds in the trade of Johnny Cueto. While he has put up some impressive strikeout numbers (21Ks in 16.1 innings), he has struggled in preventing runs. His 6.06 ERA looks a bit better...

Cueto Taking Heat In KC For Positive Boston Comments

Cueto Taking Heat In KC For Positive Boston Comments

Johnny CuetoWhile the Royals were in town, WEEI.com's Rob Bradford cornered soon-to-be-free-agent Johnny Cueto about the likelihood that he'd land at the top of the Boston rotation next year. At the time of the encounter, Cueto was schmoozing with fellow Dominican Hanley Ramirez—who did the translation duties. While Cueto's responses were quite positive about the possibility of donning Carmine Hose, it wasn't exactly a commitment to buy a condo in Brookline. Nevertheless, the Kansas City media has its spare ribs in a bunch over the matter (sorry, ribs are the only stereotypical Kansas City...

Free Agent-To-Be Cueto Likes Champion Calibrer Sox

(KansasCityStar.com Photo)Tonight's mound opponent for the Red Sox could very well be a teammate in 2016. Johnny Cueto, the ace at the top of the Royals rotation, could be just the solution the Red Sox need to upgrade their rotation next year. The 29-year old Dominican native was traded by the Reds to Kansas City at the deadline. In four starts for the AL Central leaders, he has a 1.80 ERA. Pretty good deal! Cueto told WEEI.com's Rob Bradford (through the interpretation services of Hanley Ramirez), "... I would like to come here because it’s a championship-caliber team." No problem,...
