David Holmberg allowed two runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Holmberg was done in by back-to-back homers to Randal Grichuk and Matt Holliday in the first inning. All told, he gave up five hits and three walks while striking out three. The 23-year-old southpaw has a 5.25 ERA and 16/15 K/BB ratio in 24 innings over four starts and two relief appearances this season. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Zack Cozart went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

It was the only offense of the game for the Reds. Cozart has been one of the least productive regulars in the majors this season, batting just .225/.273/.299 with three home runs and 37 RBI over 140 games.

Daniel Corcino yielded two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cubs.

Well, there was no way the offense was going to let Corcino off the hook after allowing two runs tonight; Bryan Price saw to that. Corcino struck out six and gave the Reds more than they should have expected in his second big-league start, but he was pitching for a team that mailed it in weeks ago.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Wednesday.

Manager Bryan Price evidently wasn't pleased with his team's effort during a one-hit shutout Tuesday, and he's responded by benching every regular. Wednesday's starter for the Cubs, Kyle Hendricks, makes for a fine streaming option.

Brandon Phillips provided the Reds their only hit as they were shut out by the Cubs 7-0 on Tuesday.

Jake Arrieta was five outs from a no-hitter, but Phillips ended the attempt with a double to left-center. He finished 1-for-3 on the night. Phillips is near the end of a dreadful, injury-hampered season, slashing .258/.302/.364 with seven home runs and 48 RBI.

Johnny Cueto fell to 18-9 after allowing six runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Through five innings, Cueto had allowed just one run on a fielder's choice ground out, but he was not going to outduel Arrieta -- who brought a no-hitter into the eighth inning -- on this night. Cueto faltered in the sixth, surrendering five more runs, but it ultimately didn't matter. Overall, Cueto gave up five hits, walked five, and struck out eight. He now has a 2.33 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and a 228/64 K/BB ratio. He'll make his next start at home against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Sep 16 - 10:56 PM

Mat Latos (elbow) played catch with no issues on Tuesday.

It's the first time he's thrown since he was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated over the weekend that Latos is unlikely to return this season, and that's probably still the case given how little time is left. Still, it seems like the door hasn't been shut yet.
Sep 16 - 6:54 PM

Joey Votto (quad) took batting practice Tuesday.

It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list in early July with a distal left quad strain. Votto has upped his workouts recently and is with the Reds on the road, so it appears that a return before the end of the season is still a possibility. Even if he does come back, however, he'll likely get in only a handful of games.
Sep 16 - 6:33 PM

Alfredo Simon shut out the Cubs for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Simon owes his All-Star appearance to the Cubs this year; he's 3-0 with a 1.10 ERA in five starts against them and 11-10 with a 3.83 ERA versus everyone else. The win tonight was just his third against seven losses since the All-Star break.
Sep 15 - 11:24 PM

Brandon Phillips is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Monday night against the Cubs.

It's just a routine day of rest for the veteran second baseman, who's batting .202 with a .523 OPS since returning August 18 from a torn thumb ligament. Kristopher Negron is starting at second base on Monday.
Sep 15 - 3:22 PM

Todd Frazier hit his 26th home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Frazier was one of the few Reds batters able to do much of anything against Brewers starter Matt Garza, hitting the solo shot in the sixth inning. It's been a strong year for the 28-year-old, who has a career high 26 home runs, 75 RBI, 79 runs scored and 20 stolen bases.
Sep 14 - 6:20 PM

Mike Leake allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Leake gave up eight hits and walked three, so he was actually fortunate that only three runs crossed the plate. The loss was his first since August 13, dropping him to 11-12 on the year. He's had another strong year despite the Reds' struggles, owning a 3.65 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 152/46 K/BB ratio over 202 1/3 innings this season. He's got the Cardinals on deck in St. Louis Saturday.
Sep 14 - 6:07 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Saturday that Mat Latos (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

Latos was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. While it doesn't seem like a long-term concern, there's no reason for the Reds to push him to return with so little time left in the season. "We're not going to try to force feed Mat his last few starts if he's not feeling really good," Price said. "It doesn't make much sense for us. I'd like him to pitch, but I don't want to exacerbate an existing issue. He'll have to come quite a ways to make that next start."
Sep 14 - 10:25 AM

Dylan Axelrod (oblique) is not expected to return this season.

It's no surprise, as Axelrod suffered a strained oblique a week ago and it's an injury that usually takes multiple weeks to recover from "The oblique injury is significant enough that I'm not optimistic that we'll see him the rest of the season," Reds manager Bryan Price said. Axelrod pitched well in his brief time with Cincy, posting a 3.12 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 frames.
Sep 14 - 10:23 AM

David Holmberg tossed six innings of one-run ball in Saturday's 5-1 defeat of the Brewers.

It was the first major league victory for Holmberg, who limited the Brewers to two hits and two walks while fanning four. The only run Milwaukee scored the whole night was on a solo homer from Aramis Ramirez in the bottom of the fourth. Holmberg should get another start next week, but the 23-year-old is a poor bet to replicate this type of success.
