David Holmberg will be called up to start on Thursday when the Reds take on the Marlins.

The Reds were rolling with Josh Smith, who struggled in rotation duties and was sent back to Double-A on Monday. Holmberg appeared in seven games (five starts) last year and held a 4.80 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 30 innings. He's putting up similar numbers in Triple-A this season and should not be relied upon for fantasy purposes.

Marlon Byrd is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

He's presumably getting the day off. Skip Schumaker will start in left field against Max Scherzer.

Aroldis Chapman kept the Nationals off the board in the ninth inning to earn his 17th save as the Reds held on for a 3-2 victory on Monday.

Chapman allowed a one-out walk to Michael Taylor, who advanced to second base on a passed ball, but was able to retire Jose Lobaton on strikes and Mat den Dekker on a ground ball to end the game. Chapman, officially a 2015 NL All-Star, is 17-for-18 in save chances with a 1.73 ERA and a 62/20 K/BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings.
Jul 6 - 10:33 PM

Anthony DeSclafani got a no-decision after yielding two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but the Reds pulled out a late victory on Monday against the Nationals.

DeSclafani allowed five hits and walked four while striking out six. Despite allowing only two runs, it registers among his poorer outings on the season. He owns a 3.65 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 74/41 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. DeSclafani will take on the Marlins in a road start next.
Jul 6 - 10:32 PM

Eugenio Suarez hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to break a tie and ultimately send the Reds to a win over the Nationals on Monday.

Suarez, in a 3-for-4 effort, took reliever Casey Janssen out to left field to break a 2-2 tie in the top of the eighth inning. He has done a commendable job filling in for Zack Cozart at shortstop, batting .329/.372/.493 with three home runs, 13 RBI, and three stolen bases since June 11.
Jul 6 - 10:23 PM

Reds recalled OF Yorman Rodriguez from Triple-A Louisville.

Rodriguez was ranked as the No. 10 prospect in the Reds' system by Baseball America over the winter. An early cut from spring training this season, he hit .272/.310/.432 with nine homers and 40 RBI across 287 at-bats in Triple-A prior to the promotion.
Jul 6 - 3:11 PM

Reds optioned RHP Josh Smith to Double-A Pensacola.

Smith made three starts for the Reds, surrendering 12 runs in 12 1/3 innings. He pitched to a 3.56 ERA and 1.25 WHIP for Triple-A Louisville, but is being sent down another level this time around. He might see spot duty again at another point this season, but the major league results have not been encouraging thus far.
Jul 6 - 3:07 PM

Reds RHP prospect Tyler Mahle fanned three hitters in six shutout frames Saturday in a win for Low-A Dayton.

Mahle is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in his last two starts. He leads the Midwest League in strikeouts with 87. The right-hander is also second in wins (eight) and innings pitched (91). Opponents have hit just .238 against Mahle with runners in scoring position. The 20-year-old has a good chance to move up to High-A Daytona before the season ends.

Mike Leake notched a quality start but lost to the Brewers on Sunday, yielding three runs in six innings.

Leake allowed eight hits and three walks while striking out four. The Brewers weren't hitting him particularly hard, as six of the eight hits were singles, but they were hitting him often. Leake has earned a quality start in three of his last four outings, but still has a mediocre 4.39 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP and a 69/30 K/BB ratio in 106 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back into the win column in his next start on the road against the Marlins.
Jul 5 - 4:02 PM

Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

It appears to simply be a day off. Jason Bourgeois is in center field while Hamilton rests.
Jul 5 - 10:49 AM

Todd Frazier went 4-for-5 with two doubles in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

Frazier's two doubles gave him 24 for the season, a fantastic indication of just how well he's been hitting. For comparison's sake, Frazier's career-high for doubles was 29 in 2013. That number should be bypassed soon enough. From the wider angle, he's currently hitting .289/.348/.610 with 25 home runs, 54 RBI and eight steals.
Jul 4 - 11:29 PM

Josh Smith was hit up for five runs over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

This was Smith's third start in a row for the Reds. It did little to show that he deserves a fourth outing. Smith struck out two and walked three, running into trouble in the fourth and fifth innings to account for the five runs scored against his line. Triple-A Louisville seems like a probable destination for the pitcher following this performance, though the Reds have not announced a move on that front as of yet.
Jul 4 - 11:19 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said moving Tony Cingrani (shoulder) into the starting rotation is a "possibility."

Cincinnati plans to stretch Cingrani out in the minor leagues while he rehabs his injured shoulder. Cingrani went 2-7 with a 4.68 ERA in 11 starts for the Reds last season. The Reds are expected to deal Johnny Cueto before the trade deadline, which would create an opening in the starting rotation.
Jul 4 - 5:05 PM

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty clarified Thursday that the team will not trade third baseman Todd Frazier.

The Reds are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline and have several pieces that should be very popular commodities. Frazier won't be one of them though. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI and eight stolen bases.
Jul 4 - 8:53 AM
Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a double in Friday's blowout loss to the Brewers.

Bruce has often seemed like an enigma wrapped an injury-riddled noodle, but he actually hit .263/.345/.495 with five homers and 17 RBI in June. He's an interesting buy-low candidate for fantasy purposes now that the power's starting to show itself.
