Reds' J.J. Hoover: Optioned to Triple-A Louisville
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hoover was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday by the Reds.

Though he hasn't yet been designated off the 40-man roster, it's possible that this could be the end of Hoover's tenure with the Reds. It certainly seems as if he's beyond repair, at least by them.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Another disastrous outing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoover was crushed by the Cubs in the 15th inning Tuesday, giving up five runs on three hits, including a grand slam homer by Javy Baez.

Hoover's also walked two batters in the loss. His line nearly mirrored his most recent disaster last weekend against the Padres, though at least in that one he managed to get two strikeouts. He has allowed homers in three consecutive outings and has given up a whopping nine homers in 18 appearances for the season.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Recalled to majors Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoover was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

Hoover opened up the season as the Reds' closer but struggled mightily in that capacity, ultimately posting unsightly numbers with a 14.34 ERA and 2.34 WHIP over 10.2 innings before being sent down to the minors. The 28-year-old reported making a mechanical adjustment and was able to get straightened out somewhat in the minors, but he doesn't figure to slot back into a back-of-the-bullpen role immediately upon rejoining the big league club.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Optioned to Louisville
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hoover was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

The Reds announced a series of moves Saturday afternoon, and Hoover will head to Triple-A as right-hander Drew Hayes comes up from Louisville to assume his spot on the roster. Hoover struggled mightily in 12 appearances for the Reds, conceding 19 hits and 17 earned runs across just 10.2 innings.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Makes adjustment during Sunday's side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

J.J. Hoover claims to have made an adjustment during Sunday's side session that could potentially address the issues that the reliever has been having with hard contact, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Although Hoover failed to note exactly what the adjustment was, Buchanan suggests that he may have been tipping his pitches. If that turns out to be the case, there could be a notable improvement on tap for the former closer that has surrendered 13 earned runs over his first six innings of the season. Pitching to contact has been problematic this year for Hoover, as he enters Sunday with a career-high 28 percent line drive rate. If he can bring that down to his career average of right around 20 percent, it would be a good first step in ultimately earning back ninth-inning duties.
