Mets right-handed pitcher Jenrry Mejia was permanently suspended by Major League Baseball after testing positive for Boldenone.
Friday links! It makes me smile to note that today is the last Friday where there will be no Cincinnati Reds baseball in any capacity until at least October. Pitchers and catchers will officially report to the team's Goodyear, AZ complex on Thursday, while the rest of the gang will join them for good the following Tuesday (February 23rd). If you can take a deep breath and rest easy with the idea that the 2016 Reds are playing to make 2017 and 2018 successful and not for the arbitrary end-of-2016 standings, knowing that baseball is just around the corner should give you the same...
John gets it. Earlier this morning, after a week long slow burn that I teased yesterday, John Sickels over at Minor League Ball, revealed his rankings/grades/thoughts of the top 20 Reds prospects. Keep in mind that these rankings/reviews are only small blurbs about the players potential, and they are preliminary and subject to change at this point. If you want all of the full scouting reports along with the final, set in stone rankings, you'll have to plunk down some cold, hard cash for the 2016 Baseball Prospect Book. Let's take a look at John's rankings: Rank Player 1 Robert...
Football is over, which means baseball is coming. On Sunday, the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50. The game included dancing monkey dog babies, Beyonce defying gravity, and Von Miller eating Cam Newton for breakfast, but by far the most important takeaway is that baseball is just around the corner. Here are some gifs to get you into the baseball spirit. BASEBALL!!!!!! SOMEONE GIVE HIM A HIGH FIVE BECAUSE BASEBALL IS COMING!!! GET. ANGRY. BASEBALL. IS. COMING. Who's ready for baseball, eh? WE...
"It's going to be rough." Boy, you're telling me. Earlier this week, I received my copy of the 2016 Baseball Prospectus. It's quite the wieldy beast; clocking in at just under 600 pages, this edition, just like all the others before it, is overflowing with everything you need to know about the 2016 baseball season. I'm about to outline ten things that I learned (and probably a few things that I already knew, reinforced) from this year's annual, but I could probably write about one-hundred things that I learned (both because this thing has everything you need to know, and because I'm dumb)....

The Baltimore Orioles like Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, FOXSports.com and MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal reports.
One week from hearing about how all of these players are in the best shapes of their lives. I'll admit, there's slim pickings on news today, because we here at Red Reporter are so up ons the haps of Reds news we don't leave any meat on the bone for Reposters. Or something. More likely it's because we're one week away from spring training and, well, there's just not a lot going on out there. So, we'll start with something that I know has been mentioned before, but I don't think has been formally addressed: Bryan Price joined MLB Network's High Heat a few days ago and suggested that John...
Holy cow, Jose Lopez was on that list for a really long time. Finally, the 2016 Community Prospect Rankings have come to a close. Seriously, it started to feel like it would never end, though, I really love doing it. Jose Lopez took the final spot on the rankings, even though I think he's been on the voting list for two weeks. At the time of me beginning writing this article he had a one vote lead, though it was tied for a while. To round out the voting there are three honorable mentions we will tack on (#31,#32, and #33, if you will). We usually do this because consolation prizes are...
Keith Law's prospect rankings came out today for ESPN, and he has 4 Reds in his top 100 list. You'll have to have Insider access to see the full list, but it fits with his theme of the Reds' system getting mixed reviews. Robert Stephenson is the Reds' highest-ranked prospect on the list, ranking #31 in baseball. The Lighthouse, as he's called, had sort of a mixed-bag season in 2015, introducing a new pitch that turned out to be a real weapon for him but one that he threw too often when he probably should have been working on fastball command. That said, the new weapon, a changeup with...
Red Reporter Feb 10, 2016
A Jay Bruce rumor? Really? The Cincinnati Reds have made effort after effort to revamp their roster after back to back losing seasons, in the process trading away pieces that didn't figure into their rebuilding plans in exchange for prospects that can help in the future. This offseason alone has seen the exits of both Todd Frazier and Aroldis Chapman, as well a pair of attempts to trade away stalwart 2B Brandon Phillips (to no avail). One player the team has reportedly had interest in trading without much positive reception, however, is Jay Bruce, as their RF has seen his production...

Law previews the systems before unveiling his top 100 prospects tomorrow. The only thing of note going on in Redsland, currently, is seeing where the top Reds farmhands rank on the various preseason prospect rankings. Everyone and their brother has one, and we've been following them closely here at Red Reporter (and we're about to complete our own, as well). Tomorrow, ESPN's MLB Insider Keith Law will unveil his Top 100 but before that, as a bit of a preview, he ranks all of MLB's clubs in order from best to worst overall systems. Last year, the Reds clocked in a number 17 in the list. In...
