J.J. Hoover melts down in a big way Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Reds closer J.J. Hoover had a big meltdown in his first save opportunity of the season Saturday.

Hoover had control issues, walking the first batter he faced. There was some controversy in the next at-bat. Anthony Recker attempted to bunt Juan Lagares over to second, but Lagares was ruled out on the play. After a review, it was determined Lagares was safe. Hoover gave up another walk to load the bases, which brought up a pinch-hitting Ike Davis.

The at-bat lasted just two pitches. Davis hit a walkoff grand slam on a 73 mph curveball. Hoover finished the game without recording an out. He gave up one hit, two walks and four earned runs.

J.J. Hoover secures win vs. Cardinals Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, walking one and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning before his team went on to beat the Cardinals, 1-0.

Hoover struggled during spring training but turned in a strong debut. He should be the first option for saves in Cincinnati until Jonathan Broxton returns from the disabled list.

How heavily should you invest in J.J. Hoover?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though no one of any real authority has confirmed it, J.J. Hoover appears to be the top choice for saves in Cincinnati with both Aroldis Chapman (head) and Jonathan Broxton (forearm) sidelined for the foreseeable future.

So just how much of a priority is he in Fantasy? In terms of ability, I think he's a good fit for the role. He throws hard, and it shows up in his strikeout and hit rates, which isn't true for every hard-throwing reliever. He also seemed to turn the corner after some early struggles last year, allowing just five earned runs over his final 41 appearances for a 1.14 ERA.

But again, the job isn't for sure his. The most manager Bryan Price has offered is that he'll be part of a committee to begin the season (which never lasts, but he may not be the one to emerge). Plus, it's not like Chapman is out forever. At worst, he'll probably return by the All-Star break.

For that reason, I'm ranking Hoover behind other first-year closers like Nate Jones and Tommy Hunter and even behind a non-closer in Rex Brothers, who should take the job and run with it sooner than later in Colorado. I like Hoover better than anything Houston's closer committee has to offer, though.

Report: J.J. Hoover top choice as temporary closer for Reds
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The loss of Aroldis Chapman and injuries to Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall that could land both on the disabled list to start the season has J.J. Hoover as the top internal candidate to serve as Reds closer, FoxSports.com has speculated.

Hoover boasts the best resume of those left standing in the Cincinnati bullpen. He has a 2.61 ERA with four saves in the last two seasons combined as the setup man.

Pair of Reds' relievers shutting down opponents
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Relievers J.J. Hoover and Manny Parra has been outstanding out of the Reds' bullpen lately. Hoover hasn't allowed a run in his last 17 innings (14 appearances), while Parra has a 14 2/3 scoreless innings streak (18 appearances) through Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Hoover, who has lowered his ERA from 5.40 to 3.30, has struck out 21 batters during his scoreless streak, while allowing seven hits and six walks. He also has two wins and one hold in that span.

Parra has struck out 17 during his scoreless innings streak, while walking three and allowing five hits. He's lowered his ERA from 8.44 to 3.55, while picking up one win and four holds in that span.
