News
Reds pitcher Sam LeCure took the loss Tuesday in the completion of Monday's suspended game, giving up one earned run on three hits and one walk in two innings while striking out three in his team's 8-7 loss to the Pirates.

LeCure (0-1) was the first man on the mound once play resumed Tuesday, and he gave up the decisive run in the seventh inning before pitching a scoreless eighth. He's surrendered just the one run in five innings while striking out four and walking three this season.

Reds pitcher Sean Marshall tossed a scoreless inning in his rehab appearance with Triple-A Louisville Tuesday, giving up one hit and walking one while striking out two.

Marshall threw 12 of his 20 pitches for strikes in his first rehab appearance with Louisville. He's scheduled to pitch again Wednesday and, if all goes well, return to the Reds by the end of the week.

News
Devin Mesoraco has been off the DL all of six games and has already hit three home runs. He also has three doubles, going 8 for 17 overall.

Boy, Dusty Baker really blew it on that one, didn't he?

I say that because I feel like we should already be well acquainted with this version of Mesoraco. He was the big catcher prospect two years ago, ranking 16th among all prospects according to Baseball America, but Baker chose to leave him on the bench, preferring Ryan Hanigan's defense.

But Baker is gone now. So is Hanigan, for that matter, which means Mesoraco finally has a chance to apply his potential. And the early returns are breathtaking.

It's early, yes, and if he goes hitless in his next 10 at-bats, this post will seem horribly misguided, but seeing how quickly he's taken to an everyday role and knowing his potential, I don't think it's too far-fetched to think he could be a must-start catcher by season's end.

I've already bumped him up to 15th in my catcher rankings, and the margin between him and the four ahead of him is thin.

Homer Bailey, #34

News
If you own Homer Bailey, your team probably stinks right now. You drafted him as a mainstay for your pitching staff, and he's done his best to bury you in his first free starts.

But just because he's put you in a hole doesn't mean you have to climb in. Bench him if you must, but don't trade him for 50 cents on the dollar or, worse yet, drop him. The season isn't even 10 percent over. The possibility of him getting back on track and delivering the numbers everyone expected is still more likely than not.

When a player underachieves this time of year, the damage isn't in the numbers he puts up but the panic he creates. Last year, it was Matt Cain with a 6.49 ERA in April. Those who unloaded him then felt pretty silly when he compiled a 3.43 ERA the rest of the way.

Bailey is throwing as hard as ever and hasn't lost sight of the strike zone. He's just getting hit harder than usual. It's mainly his curveball, a pitch that requires some finesse. Finesse comes through repetition. Repetition comes in spring training. Bailey missed much of spring training with a groin injury, throwing only nine innings. He's behind, and with his specific arsenal, it shows.

Pitchers who rely heavily on curveballs are more likely to struggle in April for that reason. We've never seen it from Bailey before, but because nothing else is amiss, you can assume it's to blame.

Reds outfielder Chris Heisey made of the most of his pinch-hit appearance Sunday against the Rays.

Heisey was called upon in the the bottom of the eighth with the bases loaded. He smashed a 92 mph fastball out to left for a grand slam on the second pitch he saw from Josh Lueke. Heisey was replaced by a pitcher following the inning, ending his appearance.

Heisey went 1 for 1, with one run scored and four RBI.

"We're optimistic that, in relatively short order, he'll be able to get into game action," manager Bryan Price said.

Schumaker is on the disabled list with a dislocated left shoulder injured on March 21.

Broxton has tossed two scoreless innings since coming back from a forearm injury. He should serve as the team's closer for as long as Aroldis Chapman is sidelined.

Reds starter Alfredo Simon crafted one of the best performances of his career Saturday - and wound up with a loss to Tampa Bay.

Simon was outpitched by Alex Cobb, but that entailed giving up just one run on five hits in eight innings. He walked one and fanned four. His outing was marred only by a second-inning solo home run by James Loney.

The right-hander has been sensational to start the season. He owns a 1.29 ERA and will attempt to maintain that brilliance Friday against the Cubs.

Injuries
Knee, elbow, forearm - 15-day DL. Out until at least late April (Updated - 4/12/14)
News
An MRI revealed Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos has a flexor mass strain in his right forearm. However, there is nothing wrong with the UCL in his elbow and he won't need surgery.

"I have some swelling in the flexor mass. It’s not ideal but it’s not the worst thing in the world," Latos said, per MLB.com. "Everything is fine with the UCL. The exact words from (Dr. Tim) Kremchek were 'the UCL looks strong,' from the MRI. But there is inflammation and fluid."

The injury isn't similar to the flexor mass tear Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton suffered in August, which required season-ending surgery.

"It’s a setback in his recovery," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It’s more time off to let it recover, let it simmer down, get the inflammation out and start back up. We’ll keep working hard on staying in shape and doing all the other things that he’s capable of doing. His timetable will be pushed back fairly significantly.

"We’re very optimistic he will be back throwing in the next 10-14 days and by that time, he should not have any further issues but time will tell."

Phillips has spent each of the team's first 10 games in the No. 2 spot of the lineup, but he'll flip-flop with first baseman Joey Votto Saturday. Phillips, who went 2 for 4 with a double Friday, has hit .300/.333/.425 with one home run and three RBI in 40 at-bats.

Head - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-May (Updated - 3/30/14)
News
Reds closer Aroldis Chapman (head) said his bullpen session Monday went well. Chapman mixed in fastballs and sliders during a 25-pitch session.

"He threw the ball outstanding, he threw all his pitches, including his slider," manager Bryan Price said, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. "He was sharp, extremely enthusiastic. He was happy to be out there, as we all were. We were all out there to watch it. It was exciting."

Chapman is expected to throw more bullpens before moving onto facing live hitters. Chapman isn't expected to throw again until Thursday at the earliest.

"It's an obvious and essential step to the next thing, which will be live batting practice and game situations," Price said. "I think facing batters will be the biggest hurdle for him initially, but we haven't seen any reason to believe he's anything other than optimistic about getting back on the mound and facing hitters."

Leake (2-1) also did some damage at the plate, hitting a double and a two-run home run as part of a 2-for-3 night. He turned in his best strikeout rate of the season in the start after getting just three Ks in each of his first two starts.

Leake owns a 2.95 ERA and 14:5 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He's due to take on the the Pirates again Monday, this time in Pittsburgh.

Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani bounced back from a loss Monday at St. Louis to lead Cincinnati to a 12-4 win Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. Cingrani allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings, while striking out six.

Cingrani (1-1) got off to a great start Sunday, retiring the first six batters he faced. He held a 2-0 lead before Ben Zobrist tied the game with a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the third inning.

However, those were the only runs Tampa Bay mustered off the left-handed hurler, who stranded two runners in the fifth inning and worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning.

Cingrani, who has a 2.60 ERA, is expected to make his next start Saturday against the Cubs.
