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.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Another shellacking Friday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

J.J. Hoover endured another shellacking by the Cubs on Friday night, giving up four runs while retiring just two batters. He gave up his fourth homer of the year to Javier Baez leading off the inning, and later gave up three consecutive doubles.

At this point, one has to wonder if something is physically wrong with Hoover, beyond merely the gravity of the ninth inning role hanging over him. His ERA climbed to 19.50 after this latest bad outing.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Out of closer role with closer by committee coming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

J.J. Hoover will not be the sole closer for the Cincinnati Reds after manager Bryan Price decided that the Reds will go with a closer by committee for the time being, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Hoover's hold on the closer role was in question after he gave up nine earned runs in just 5.1 innings of work, and this ends his time as the only closer for the Reds for now. There's a chance that he'll get the ball in the ninth inning if he can put together a couple good outings in the near future, but he'll lose some of those opportunities now to Tony Cingrani, Caleb Cotham, and Blake Wood.

Reds' J.J. Hoover: Unavailable to close Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Bryan Price is still thinking over what he plans to do with the closer role going forward, but Hoover will be unavailable for Wednesday's game after pitching in back-to-back games to start the week, WCPO.com's John Fay reports.

All signs point to Hoover being finished, or close to finished as the Reds' closer, as he has allowed runs in four of his eight appearances this year. He has also allowed three home runs, while walking four and striking out four in 5.1 innings, so disaster has seemingly been around every corner. Tony Cingrani, Caleb Cotham and Blake Wood figure to be the top options if Price decides to make a change, but Cingrani is the only lefty in the bullpen, and has also allowed five walks in 5.2 innings, while Cotham has just 17.2 MLB innings on his resume and Wood has a career K-rate of just 17.9 percent, so there are no ideal options for the ninth inning right now in Cincinnati.
