Jon Moscot (shoulder) said he felt "all right" after throwing on Saturday.

It's not a ringing endorsement but for now, Moscot is still expected to make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Giants. Moscot has been dealing with soreness related to scar tissue in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. It's been a rough month for Reds starting pitchers as Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) and Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) are also battling injuries.
Apr 30 - 6:32 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) felt discomfort in his side during Friday's rehab start for Low-A Dayton.

He reported feeling a "sensation" in his injured oblique after throwing 77 pitches over five innings. "We’re really doing everything we can to avoid a setback," said manager Bryan Price. "He was good until the last inning or so, and then it was an issue." DeSclafani was expected to join the Reds for his next start but that seems unlikely now.
Apr 30 - 6:24 PM

Raisel Iglesias is in danger of missing Sunday's start against the Pirates with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" on Friday and was examined by team doctors. This could be a recurrence of the shoulder fatigue that plagued him late last season. Louisville right-hander Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in case the Reds need him to fill in on Sunday. Iglesias' first five starts have yielded mixed results. His 3.49 ERA is impressive but opponents are hitting .296 against him with four homers in 115 at-bats. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without him on Sunday.

Devin Mesoraco is dealing with a stiff left shoulder.

That would explain why he's sitting Saturday against Pittsburgh. Mesoraco will be available off the bench tonight and should be back in the starting lineup Sunday or Monday. Hot-hitting Tucker Barnhart will fill in behind the plate.
Apr 30 - 4:31 PM

Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.

It sounds as though Reds manager Bryan Price wanted to give his young backstop a few days off to clear his head after starting the season in a .140/.218/.160 funk with only one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate again on Saturday and batting seventh for the Reds against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates.
Apr 30 - 2:35 PM

Tucker Barnhart plated the Reds lone run with an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

His run-scoring double off of Arquimedes Caminero in the ninth inning pulled the Reds to within three at 4-1, but that would be as close as they would come. Barnhardt finished the evening 1-for-4. He has been swinging a hot bat in the first month of the season, slashing .333/.385/.417 with four RBI in 39 plate appearances.
Apr 29 - 10:47 PM

Dan Straily logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Pirates, surrendering two runs on five hits over his six innings.

The right-hander punched out five on the night while issuing three free passes. The Pirates scratched out single runs in the third and fourth innings, the latter coming on a solo blast off the bat of Josh Harrison. Straily has done a nice job thus far in the Reds rotation, posting a 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 22/12 K/BB ratio across 24 innings. He'll try again to earn his first victory when he takes on the Giants on Wednesday.
Apr 29 - 10:44 PM

Jon Moscot (shoulder) is expected to make his next start.

Moscot had some soreness in his surgically-repaired left (non-throwing) shoulder on Wednesday in his last outing, but there's apparently no cause for concern. He's scheduled to face the Giants next week.
Apr 29 - 5:02 PM

Devin Mesoraco is absent from the Reds' lineup Friday.

It's been a rough start to the season for Mesoraco, who is hitting only .140/.218/.160 with no homers and one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate.
Apr 29 - 3:06 PM

Zack Cozart homered against the Mets on Wednesday, ultimately going 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored.

Cozart mashed a 2-1 slider from Matt Harvey over the left-field wall to leadoff Wednesday night's game. It's been a hot start to the season for the shortstop. He's hitting .397/.388/.603 on the year with two homers and seven doubles. That .411 BABIP is going to come crashing down to earth; however, he's a good bet for double-digit homers if he can stay healthy. That's not something to sneeze at for a shortstop, either. Only 17 of them did that a year ago.
Apr 27 - 11:12 PM

Jon Moscot went five innings against the Mets on Wednesday, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks.

Moscot did his best to make up for suspect defensive work before leaving with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. The Reds’ defense committed three errors, which probably should’ve resulted in more runs than it did considering the fact that Moscot allowed eight baserunners on his own. Still, he finished with just one run credited to him. Before worrying about him in fantasy leagues, though, remember that he has more earned runs (7) and walks (9) than strikeouts, as well as a potential left (non-throwing) shoulder injury.
Apr 27 - 10:57 PM

Reds optioned RHP Layne Somsen to Triple-A Louisville.

The Reds had just purchased Somsen's contract from Triple-A on Monday. Back to Triple-A, now, for the 26-year-old right-hander. He returns to a 1.04 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. The Reds could bring him back into the major league fold later this season.
Apr 27 - 10:48 PM

Jon Moscot underwent an X-ray on his surgically-repaired non-throwing shoulder.

Per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon, the Reds are hoping that this is just scar tissue breaking up in Moscot's left shoulder rather than something more serious. The 24-year-old right-hander underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder last June. He allowed three runs -- one earned -- over five innings Wednesday versus the Mets and owns a 4.02 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in three starts this year.
Apr 27 - 10:39 PM

Brandon Phillips (finger, shin) is out again Wednesday.

Ivan DeJesus Jr. will start at second base and bat second against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Phillips has bruises on his left hand and shin. He remains day-to-day.

Reds RHP prospect Franderlyn Romero took a no-hitter into the eighth inning Tuesday in a win for Low-A Dayton.

Kane County's Jose Queliz broke it up with a two-out single in the eighth, ending Romero's night after 89 pitches. Romero's command was incredible—none of the 25 hitters he faced went to a three-ball count. He also finished with a career-high 12 strikeouts. The right-hander had set down 17 in a row before the hit by Queliz. Opponents had actually performed relatively well against Romero before Tuesday, hitting .316 across 76 at-bats.
