      Reds' Keyvius Sampson: Offseason elbow surgery

      Sampson had surgery to repair loose bodies in his pitching elbow over the offseason, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sampson had troubles with the elbow at the beginning of the season but tried to pitch through them all season. He expects to be ready at the beginning of spring training. "There were times my parents and my agent would call and they could see I wasn't getting fully extended and I didn't look like I was 100 percent," Sampson said.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson strikes out seven in no-decision

      Reds starting pitcher Keyvius Sampson allowed four runs on three hits, walking two and striking out seven over five-plus innings, coming away with a no-decision against the Pirates on Friday night. Sampson (2-6, 6.54 ERA) struggled again and has done little to underscore the likelihood he can contribute to the Reds in 2016. He's given up 67 hits in 52.1 innings, and holds a disappointing 44:26 K:BB ratio. He has a live arm, but he'll need to show more to put himself into the consideration set for fantasy owners.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson holds Cardinals to one run on Tuesday

      Reds starter Keyvius Sampson took a no decision Tuesday against the Cardinals as he allowed just one run on four hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out one. Sampson is still hardly missing any bats, as he induced just seven swinging strikes and continues to struggle to get strikeouts. Sampson still has just one quality start on the season and a brutal 33:24 K:BB ratio. His ERA sits at 6.45, and he still looks far away from becoming a major league quality pitcher.

      Reds pitcher Keyvius Sampson will not start Saturday

      Reds pitcher Keyvius Sampson is no longer scheduled to start for the Reds on Saturday in Milwaukee. He'll be replaced by Josh Smith in the rotation. The Reds haven't announced a plan to shut Sampson down thus far, but he's struggled as a starter at Triple-A and in the big leagues this season while pushing his workload to 122 innings over three levels this season after tossing 91 2/3 innings at Triple-A El Paso for the Padres in 2014.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson clobbered in Milwaukee

      When a team provides a pitcher eight runs in five innings, he's supposed to win. Reds starter Keyvius Sampson did not win Saturday night. Sampson gave back all the runs he received back while he was in the game - which wasn't long. He allowed five earned runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. He walked two and whiffed three. He was doomed by run-scoring singles off the bats of Scooter Gennett, Ryan Braun and Adam Lind in the fourth. Sampson has followed a good start to his major league career with monumental struggles. He has surrendered 14 runs over his last 11 innings pitched to raise his ERA to a gaudy 6.43.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson clawed by Tigers in no-decision

      The Reds scored 10 runs in the sixth inning Monday against Detroit. Unfortunately for starter Keyvius Sampson, he wasn't around to benefit from it. Sampson was knocked out after four. He allowed five runs on nine hits with two walks and five strikeouts. A three-run homer by J.D Martinez and solo job by Nick Castellanos got Sampson off to a terrible start in the first and a Miguel Cabrera double in the fourth added another run to his ledger and bloated his ERA to 5.55. Sampson has been a mess over his last two outings with nine runs given up on 18 hits in just 7 1/3 innings.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson ripped by Royals

      Reds rookie Keyvius Sampson was due for a poor outing and it came Wednesday against visiting Kansas City. Sampson was slammed for four runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings in a no-decison. He walked two and whiffed two. His struggles began immediately on a walk and RBI hits by Ben Zobrist and Eric Hosmer. They continued in the second on a two-run single by Lorenzo Cain. A walk and single leading off the fourth doomed him to an early exit. The lousy performance sent his ERA soaring from 3.18 to 4.43.

      Reds SP Keyvius Sampson impresses in win over Dodgers

      Making the third start of his young career, Reds rookie pitcher Keyvius Sampson was strong in his outing against the Dodgers on Thursday. The 24-year-old allowed two runs on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out three in the 10-3 victory. Sampson (2-1, 3.18 ERA) needed 96 pitches (50 strikes) to get through the fifth. But he did a good job of limiting the damage, while facing a potent Dodgers lineup. He blanked the Dodgers through the first three innings, but served up a solo home run to Joc Pederson in the fourth inning. He then gave up another run in the fifth, but the Reds had given him a sizeable lead to work with. The young Sampson has looked impressive over his first three starts, holding his own against three very tough teams.
