Kris Negron went 4-for-4 with a sac bunt and an RBI against the Rockies on Friday.
Negron now five multihit games in 11 starts this month, though he's gone hitless in the other six games. He's done nice work filling in for Brandon Phillips since joining the team last month, and he could see time at shortstop after Phillips returns. Aug 16 - 12:22 AM

Kris Negron went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double and three runs scored Wednesday against the Indians.

It's not every day the bottom of the Reds order wins a game for the team, but Negron and Zack Cozart combined for five hits, two homers and six RBI from the seventh and eighth spots today. Negron is hitting .282 with three homers in 39 at-bats since being called up July 10. He's taken on a bigger role of late, so he's worth an add in NL-only leagues.

Reds purchased the contract of UTIL Kristopher Negron from Triple-A Louisville.

Negron will add some needed depth and versatility to the Reds' bench with Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, and Billy Hamilton all fighting injuries. Negron last appeared in the majors in 2012. The 28-year-old can play all around the diamond but isn't a great hitter.

Reds re-signed INF/OF Kristopher Negron to a minor league contract.

Negron spent all of 2013 at Triple-A Louisville, batting just .225/.295/.317. He'll be a utilityman again for the Bats.

Reds re-signed INF/OF Kristopher Negron to a minor league contract.

He also gets a spring training invite. Negron made his MLB debut with the Reds last season as a utility infielder. The 26-year-old posted a weak .628 OPS at the Triple-A level, but has experience at every position other than catcher and first base.

Reds optioned INF/OF Kristopher Negron to Triple-A Louisville.

Reds recalled INF/OF Kristopher Negron from Triple-A Louisville.

Negron, 26, is a .247 hitter over seven seasons in the minors and was batting just .212/.291/.336 with five homers and a .627 OPS through 58 games this year. He'll add some versatility to the Reds' bench, but he can be ignored by fantasy owners.

Reds acquired SS Kristopher Negron from the Red Sox for SS Alex Gonzalez.

Negron, a 23-year-old infielder and seventh-round pick from 2006, has hit .264/.338/.347 in 409 at-bats for Single-A Salem this year. He's got some speed, swiping 20 bags in 23 attempts, but he has a lot to prove and projects as a backup infielder at best.
