Reds manager Bryan Price said Homer Bailey's right shoulder issue is not considered serious.

Bailey was pulled from his start Tuesday night against the Cubs after experiencing irritation in his right shoulder, but Price called the move "precautionary." The 31-year-old right-hander has a 7.99 ERA in 56 1/3 innings this season and should not be on the fantasy radar no matter his health status.

Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in a losing cause Tuesday against the Cubs.

The big game came at Great American Ballpark, of course. Suarez has hit 19 of his 23 homers in Cincinnati this year (even though he actually has 36 more plate appearances on the road). His OBP is solid both at home (.394) and on the road (.369), so it's not like all his value has come at home. Still, 19 of 23 homers is pretty astonishing.

Homer Bailey left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after three innings due to irritation in his right shoulder.

Bailey was actually pitching quite well versus the defending World Series champs, but he got a visit from a trainer in the top of the third and Kevin Shackelford replaced him in the top of the fourth. Bailey is probably headed for some scans. He owns a brutal 7.99 ERA in 12 starts this season, even after going three scoreless innings on Tuesday night.

Asher Wojciechowski will start for the Reds on Wednesday against the Cubs.

Wojciechowski was moved to the bullpen after getting lit up for seven earned runs over just 3 2/3 innings in a start August 14 against the same Cubs team. He's not a recommended fantasy streamer and should be stacked against where possible.

Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) has resumed a throwing program.

DeSclafani got a second opinion recently on his sore right elbow and it confirmed that he was dealing with tendinitis, not anything structural. Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer says a return this year is "iffy."

Scott Feldman underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Feldman just landed on the disabled list with what was termed as right knee inflammation, but it turns out that he's done for the year. The impending free agent will finish 2017 with a 4.77 ERA across 21 starts.
Aug 22 - 3:36 PM

Zack Cozart (shin) has returned to the Reds' lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

Cozart hasn't played since he was hit in the shin area by a pitch during Friday's game. He'll bat second against right-hander John Lackey in his return to action.
Aug 22 - 2:59 PM

Jose Peraza is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs.

He'll take a seat against right-hander John Lackey. Scooter Gennett will draw the start at second base and bat fifth.
Aug 22 - 2:39 PM

Luis Castillo allowed two runs over four innings Sunday in a loss to the Braves.

Castillo struck out eight batters, but his pitch count grew in a hurry and he was lifted before the top of the fifth. The young right-hander has an impressive 3.45 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 74/30 K/BB ratio through his first 70 1/3 major league innings, though he'll bring a 2-6 record into his next start at home against the Pirates.

Scooter Gennett had two hits, including a grand slam, and five RBI as the Reds outlasted the Braves 11-8 on Saturday.

Gennett drove in a run with a sac fly in the seventh inning before lifting a no-doubter into the right field seats in the ninth. It seemed like piling on at the time, but the Braves plated four of their own in the bottom of the frame, making Gennett's slam the difference. He's now got 21 homers on the season, easily a career best, and he's also on pace to set career highs in runs scored, RBI, slugging percentage and OPS as well. There have been few more surprising stories in 2017 than that of the Brewers castoff.
Aug 20 - 12:53 AM

Scott Schebler enjoyed his return to the lineup Saturday, finishing 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and two runs scored against the Braves.

Schebler was activated before Friday's game but wasn't in the starting lineup, waiting until Saturday to take his first cuts since late July. He came back swinging, too, knocking an RBI single in the Reds' three-run fourth inning. Schebler was having a strong season in the power department prior to the left rotator cuff strain, bopping 23 homers with 45 RBI, and now healthy again, he should resume finding the cheap seats with some regularity through the end of the regular season.
Aug 20 - 12:44 AM

Robert Stephenson allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings in a win over the Braves on Saturday.

Stephenson gave up a solo homer in the third inning but not much else, giving up just three hits and walking three in his five innings of work. It was just the second win of his big league career and his first this year in 18 appearances. Just four of those have been starts, and the 24-year-old owns an ugly 6.13 ERA and 1.72 WHIP even after Saturday's outing. The big right-hander will have a shot at making it a winning streak Friday when he faces off against the Pirates.
Aug 20 - 12:13 AM

Sal Romano held the Braves to one run in seven innings while leading his club to a 5-3 win on Friday.

The only damage he allowed was a Matt Adams solo shot in the second inning. The big rookie struck out three batters, walked two and surrendered five base hits in the premium start. It was the best game of his young career. He improves to 3-5 with a 5.42 ERA in nine starts. He draws a tough matchup against the Cubs and Jake Arrieta on Thursday.
Aug 19 - 12:33 AM

Adam Duvall went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in a win over the Braves on Friday.

He swatted the first of three Reds longballs in the sixth inning off knuckle-baller R.A. Dickey. The two-run shot gave him 29 dingers and 85 RBI to go with a .260 batting average. He plated another run with a double-play grounder in the seventh inning but was not credited with an RBI for that one.
Aug 19 - 12:26 AM

Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in a win over the Braves.

He reached base on an infield single and stole second base but was left stranded in the fifth. In the seventh inning he doubled and eventually scored on a double-play ball hit by Adam Duvall. Hamilton leads the majors with 51 stolen bases, 11 more than runner-up Dee Gordon. The blazing fast center fielder has a .248 batting average with three homers, 77 runs scored and 33 RBI.
