Lisalverto Bonilla was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings Monday in his start against the Blue Jays.

On the plus side, both pitchers who relieved Bonilla were so bad that his performance might wind up mostly forgotten by the club. Robert Stephenson allowed seven runs and 10 hits in two innings after taking over, and Jake Buchanan finished up by allowing four runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Bonilla, who walked five of the 15 batters he faced tonight, is now 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA. He belongs in middle relief if he's going to stick around.

Tony Cingrani (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Class A Dayton.

Cingrani has been out since April 18 due to a right oblique strain, but he's finally ready to return to game action. He should be ready to rejoin the Reds' bullpen in early June if all goes well. The southpaw had a 1.93 ERA through five appearances prior to the injury.

Adam Duvall finished 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in the Reds' 8-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Duvall opened the game's scoring with an RBI single off Phillies starter Zach Eflin in the top of the first inning before tagging Eflin for two-run homers in both the third and fifth. The 28-year-old slugger is batting .274/.317/.548 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI in 48 games this season for Cincinnati. He's currently on pace for a whopping 142 runs batted in.

Patrick Kivlehan homered twice Sunday in the Reds' victory over the Phillies.

Kivlehan hit a solo shot in the fourth inning off Phillies starter Zach Eflin and another solo bomb off reliever Jeanmar Gomez in the top of the ninth. The 27-year-old had been stuck in a bad slump offensively but still owns a respectable .792 OPS for the year in a reserve role with Cincinnati.
May 28 - 4:45 PM

Scott Feldman yielded four earned runs over five innings but got a win Sunday versus the Phillies.

Feldman was backed by eight runs, including five homers, from the Cincinnati offense. The right-hander didn't issue a walk and struck out three, but he gave up eight hits. He'll bring a 4-4 record, 4.26 ERA, and 1.30 WHIP into his next start at home against the Braves.
May 28 - 4:42 PM

Reds acquired INF/OF Darnell Sweeney from the Dodgers for future considerations.

The dynamic 26-year-old was re-acquired by the Dodgers over the offseason in the Howie Kendrick trade. He hit just .227/.290/.412 with four homers, 15 RBI and seven stolen bases in 38 games at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
May 28 - 4:01 PM

Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a routine day of rest for the speedster. Scott Schebler has moved over to center field, Patrick Kivlehan is in right and Jose Peraza has ascended to the leadoff spot.
May 28 - 10:51 AM

Asher Wojciechowski will start on Tuesday in Toronto.

He's taking Amir Garrett's (hip) spot in the Reds' rotation. Wojciechowski earned the chance by posting a 1.40 ERA over five starts at Triple-A Louisville and then allowing one earned run over four relief innings with Cincinnati. The 28-year-old will be making his first start in the majors since April of 2015.
May 28 - 8:46 AM

Zack Cozart went 4-for-4 with a walk and a two-run homer but the Reds still lost to the Phillies on Saturday.

After Billy Hamilton led off the gave with a bunt single and stolen base, Cozart drilled a Jerad Eickhoff pitch over the left field wall to give the Reds an early lead. Cozart also doubled in the game and reached base in all five of his opportunities. He is wielding a potent bat his season, slashing .355/.433/.592 with five homers, 27 runs and 25 RBI. The 31-year-old has never hit this well for a full season so he is bound to cool down at some point. He is likely to be traded to a contender at some point this summer.
May 27 - 7:28 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in a run with a double during Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

He drove in Eugenio Suarez with a double in the sixth inning that tied the game at 3-3. It was a score that held until the Phillies walked off in the bottom of the ninth. Gennett has made the most of his limited playing time in his first season as a Red, batting .315/.344/.522 with three homers and 18 RBI in 92 at-bats.
May 27 - 7:22 PM

Bronson Arroyo allowed three solo home runs in five innings of work against the Phillies on Saturday.

All told he gave up three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four in the ballgame. He has given up 18 home runs in 10 starts and is on pace to break the all-time record of 50 homers allowed in a season (Bert Blyleven in 1986). Arroyo allowed 46 homers in 2011. The last seven runs he has allowed have all come on solo home runs. The 40-year-old has a 6.62 ERA in 51 2/3 innings. The Reds will keep running him out there because they need him to eat innings so badly due to multiple injuries in their starting rotation.
May 27 - 7:17 PM

Scott Schebler launched his 14th home run of the season on Friday, helping to lead the Reds to a 5-2 victory over the Phillies.

Schebler has been an unexpected source of power for the Reds and fantasy owners alike this season. His solo shot off of Aaron Nola in the third inning increased the Reds' early lead to 3-0. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. Schebler is now hitting .247/.320/.549 to go along with the aforementioned 14 homers and 28 RBI.
May 26 - 10:11 PM

Adam Duvall homered for the second consecutive game as the Reds dispatched of the Phillies in Philadelphia on Friday night.

Duvall had gone 15 games without a long ball prior to Thursday's game and wasted no time hitting another one. He finished the evening 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing .264/.309/.517 with 11 homers and 38 RBI.
May 26 - 10:09 PM

Billy Hamilton went 0-for-3 and swiped another pair of bases in Friday's victory over the Phillies.

Hamilton showed off how dangerous his speed can be in the first inning when he drew a leadoff walk. He then promptly swiped second and third base and came in to score on a ground ball off the bat of Joey Votto. He's now hitting .254/.310/.337 with one homer, 16 RBI and 25 stolen bases on the year.
May 26 - 10:07 PM

Tim Adleman delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Reds, allowing just one hit over eight shutout innings.

Adleman walked two and struck out four on the night. The only hit against him came on an Andres Blanco one-out single in the first inning. Now 3-2 on the season, the right-hander will look to further improve upon his 4.95 ERA and 1.25 WHIP when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday.
