Reds' Kris Negron seeking 25-man roster spot in bench role
by Jason Butt |

With a strong finish to the 2014 season, Reds utility player Kris Negron is looking to build upon his success and earn a 25-man roster spot out of spring training. 

After he was called up from the minors last July, Negron hit .271/.331/.479 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 49 appearances. If he's going to make a roster spot out of camp it will be in a bench role. 

His defensive ability certainly helps his case as he can play second base, shortstop, third base and all three outfield spots. Negron doesn't have a preference either. He just wants to be on the baseball field. 

"It doesn't matter one bit. Home sweet home is just on the field," Negron said, per "I'm still going to take advantage of every opportunity that I am given. It's the same exact mindset. Any opportunity to be on the field, any playing time, I'm going to try and take advantage of it and help the team any way I can. That's been my role my entire life. I look forward to it."

Reds' Marshall resumes throwing following setback with shoulder
by Dave Peters |

Reds reliever Sean Marshall, who underwent shoulder surgery in June, has been throwing from flat ground for a week since being shut down due to a setback, per Still, there is no date for Marshall to start throwing from a mound.

"It's a hard one to answer," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "What we're trying to do is get him to where he is completely pain free. He's been a little bit achy but nothing that would prevent him from throwing. It's a part of the process."

Marshall, who was limited to 14 innings last season, is 37-46 with a 3.86 ERA in his career.

Reds' Votto won't play in spring opener, but could get into games soon
by Michael Hurcomb |

Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who missed 100 games in 2014 due to a knee injury, will not play in Tuesday's spring opener against the Indians, as manager Bryan Price said Monday that Votto is not up to game speed yet.

Votto said Monday he feels good and expects to be in the spring lineup soon, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"I feel really, really good. I'm surpised at how good I feel this early," Votto said. "I feel like I'm trending toward being able to play games here in the not too distant future. I do feel like I need a little more time, but the time is not a byproduct of avoiding games or not being ready when I need to be ready. It's just to make sure that after taking eight months, 10 months, however long off of baseball, I have to play the game a little bit more to get ready to get the volume in and get the reps it."

Reds' Bailey says he feels good after bullpen session Monday
by Michael Hurcomb |

Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey (elbow) said he felt good Monday after throwing 26-27 pitches in the bullpen, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Bailey is not expected to be ready for the start of the season coming off elbow surgery in September, but he remains hopeful he won't miss a turn through the rotation.

"It's still so far away," he said, per "We have over a month. I haven't ruled out anything, but I haven't completely kept the door open. We just have to continue with the process. After the first three or four bullpens, we'll have a better idea of where it's at. Right now, it's still so new. It would be like that if you're healthy."

Reds' Paul Maholm, Jason Marquis competing for rotation spot
by Sean d'Oliveira |

If pitcher Homer Bailey is not on the Opening Day roster, Reds manager Bryan Price indicated his spot in the rotation could go to Paul Maholm or Jason Marquis, reports

"An example would be if Homer is not able to go. If we're healthy, that means Cueto and Leake and three spots in the rotation – two that we think could potentially be filled by young pitchers in Cingrani and DeSclafani," Price said. "That to me suggests that a veteran guy in that other spot would be fairly important, someone who knows how to manage a game and has pitched in the league and has had success in the league. I think that's why guys like Jason and Paul are here."
