Reds released OF Ryan Raburn.
Raburn showed decent power this spring, cranking three home runs in 32 at-bats in Cactus League play, but he was always a longshot to make the Reds' roster out of camp. The soon-to-be 36-year-old outfielder will try to latch on with another organization. Mar 27 - 11:38 AM

Ryan Raburn left Sunday's Cactus League game with a left hip contusion.

He should be considered day-to-day. In camp as a non-roster invitee, the lefty-masher has hit .226/.314/.516 with three homers and seven RBI this spring.

Ryan Raburn is day-to-day with a stiff neck.

Raburn was injured during a collision at first base Friday against the Rockies. He went for concussion tests but everything checked out fine. Raburn was absent from Saturday's Cactus League action but shouldn't miss much time. The 35-year-old hit .220 with nine homers over 223 at-bats for Colorado last season.

Ryan Raburn was forced to make an early exit from Friday's Cactus League contest against the Rockies after getting kneed in the head.

Reds' manager Bryan Price called his departure precautionary, but he'll head for more tests and more will be known on his status on Saturday. Raburn, who has a history of mashing left-handed pitching, is vying for a reserve role on the club's Opening Day roster.
Mar 10 - 11:32 PM

Reds signed OF Ryan Raburn to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo was first to report that the two sides may be a fit. Raburn batted a disappointing .220/.309/.404 for the Rockies last season and will turn 36 in April. However, he's a career .261/.341/.487 hitter against left-handed pitching, so he could be an option to platoon with Scott Schebler in right field.
Feb 17 - 4:21 PM

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the Reds are "in pursuit" of Ryan Raburn and "could be the favorite" to sign him.

Raburn will almost surely have to settle for a minor league contract, as he'll turn 36 in April and is coming off a disappointing season that saw him bat just .220/.309/.404 for the Rockies. The veteran would give the Reds another platoon option for Scott Schebler along with Desmond Jennings.

Ryan Raburn (foot) lined out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Giants.

Raburn remains day-to-day with a left foot contusion. The 35-year-old is batting .225/.317/.404 over 108 games this season in a utility role with Colorado.

Ryan Raburn exited Monday's game against the Giants with a left foot contusion.

Raburn went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts before leaving after five innings. Consider him day-to-day.

Ryan Raburn doubled in Nick Hundley in the bottom of the 11th and came around to score on a botched relay as the Rockies edged the Cubs 7-6 on Friday.

The double off Aroldis Chapman came in Raburn's third at-bat off the bench. Nick Hundley came around to score from first as Javier Baez's relay throw bounced into the dugout, allowing Raburn to score the winning run.

Ryan Raburn was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Friday due to a left knee contusion.

He's listed as day-to-day. David Dahl will start in his place in left field and bat seventh for the Rockies on Friday against the Mets.

Ryan Raburn whacked a pinch-hit grand slam in the ninth inning of a blowout game on Friday.

The home run was his 8th in 145 at-bats. The blast made the score 11-2 and eliminated any thoughts the Braves may have had about coming back in the bottom of the ninth. Raburn doesn't get nearly enough playing time to be worthy of starting in fantasy lineups. He only gets one or two starts a week and pinch hits the rest of the time.

Ryan Raburn was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Raburn apparently came down with an illness shortly before game time, so he'll sit this one out. Charlie Blackmon entered the lineup in his place and will bat leadoff, while Brandon Barnes shifts over to left field.

Ryan Raburn drew a walk and was credited with an RBI in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

Raburn produced the only run of the game for the Rockies when he was hit in the foot by a pitch from Adam Conley in the sixth inning. Gerardo Parra landed on the disabled list this week with a left ankle sprain, so the 35-year-old figures to share playing time in left field in the short-term. He does most of his damage against left-handed pitching, but he’s capable of being useful in daily fantasy formats.

Ryan Raburn clobbered a pinch-hit two-run homer in the seventh inning on Sunday, powering the Rockies to a 4-3 victory over the Mets.

Jim Henderson had entered the game for Jake deGrom with a man on in the seventh, and Raburn deposited the third pitch he saw over the wall in right field for the game-changing blast. The lefty-masher has hit well against all hurlers this season, slashing .353/.414/.725 with five homers and 12 RBI in only 58 plate appearances.

Ryan Raburn wore the golden sombrero in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.

Raburn got the rare start against a right-hander because he's swung the bat so well this year and homered the night before, but the move backfired on manager Walt Weiss. The 35-year-old only hit .136/.240/.227 versus righties in 2015 and struck out 40 percent of the time. Given those numbers, one figures Raburn will once again fall into a strict platoon after a performance such as this.
