    • Reds' Amir Garrett: Continues rolling
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garrett has six consecutive scoreless outings, with nine strikeouts covering five innings over that span. Overall his ERA is 1.47 with a 25:8 K:BB over 18.1 innings, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Even though save speculators haven't gotten any saves from Garrett, he has three wins to go along with his great ratios. His slider has been nearly untouchable, as he's added 1.6 mph on average over last season.

    • Reds' Amir Garrett: One pitch, one out
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garrett induced a ground ball out on the only pitch he threw Tuesday night to get the final out of the eighth inning, earning his third hold of the season in the process. Garrett has been fantastic this season and now carries a 1.00 ERA and 0.78 WHIP. He and Robert Stephenson have emerged as the top relievers in support of closer Raisel Iglesias.

    • Reds' Amir Garrett: Dominant early on
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garrett is 1-0 with a 0.71 WHIP and 8:1 K:BB in 5.2 scoreless innings so far this season (six appearances). It's early, but the lefty has been impressive for Cincinnati. His fastball velocity is down slightly from his 2018 average, but he's throwing his slider with more oomph, and the result has been more swinging strikes (18.1 percent). He's also showing improved control after posting a BB/9 north of 3.5 last year. Garrett is becoming one of the top weapons in the Reds' bullpen and could even find his way into occasional saves, with new manager David Bell not using Raisel Iglesias strictly in the traditional closer role.

    • Reds' Amir Garrett: Corrective eyewear
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garrett is wearing glasses in the clubhouse and contacts during games for the first time in his career, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "My eyes aren't that bad, but I can definitely tell the difference when I have them on," Garrett said. "I've got contacts and glasses. The contacts, I wear for the game. The glasses I wear off the field." Hey, it's spring training -- we might as well leave no stone unturned. Garrett is struggling so far this spring, with an 8.10 ERA over 6.2 innings, having allowed 10 hits and three walks. The good news is that he still has seven strikeouts and hasn't allowed a homer yet.

    • Reds' Amir Garrett: Activated from disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Garrett (foot) returned from the disabled list Monday. Garrett hit the disabled list with a bone bruise on his left foot in late August. He'll give the Reds an extra arm in the bullpen down the stretch. The lefty has a mediocre 4.21 ERA in 57.2 innings so far this season.
