  • Reds' Mike Minor: Set for one more rehab start

    Minor (shoulder) will make another rehab start Friday but could join the team after that, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor has been out all season with a shoulder issue but is nearly ready to return. He's made three rehab appearances already but has allowed eight runs (seven earned) in seven frames and has topped out at three innings, so it's no surprise the Reds want to see a more convincing performance before he's activated. If he remains on a standard rest schedule, he could pitch May 25 against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Making rehab start Sunday

    Minor (shoulder) is continuing his rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Louisville, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    The 34-year-old started for Louisville on Tuesday and will take the mound again for the affiliate Sunday. Minor covered three innings during his last outing and should continue ramping up his workload in what could be his final rehab appearance before making his season debut for the Reds.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Heads to Triple-A for rehab

    Minor (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Reds manager David Bell said Minor will make two rehab starts at Louisville this week, but the southpaw could be cleared to make his 2022 and Cincinnati debuts by next week if he checks out fine following the pair of minor-league outings. Minor has been on the shelf all season with a shoulder injury that first surfaced in spring training.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Slated for rehab start

    Minor (shoulder) is expected to make a rehab start Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor began a rehab assignment in mid-April, but it was paused after he experienced renewed shoulder soreness following an appearance for Double-A Chattanooga. However, he threw a simulated game with High-A Dayton on Wednesday and has been cleared to return to minor-league games. It's not yet clear which affiliate he'll join next week, but he'll likely need to make at least two starts in the minors prior to joining the Reds.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Advances to sim game

    Minor (shoulder) completed a simulated game Wednesday at High-A Dayton.

    The Reds are in the midst of a road trip, so Minor reported to one of the organization's local minor-league affiliates to take the next step forward in his recovery from the left shoulder injury that has kept him on the shelf all season. Assuming he reports no setbacks coming out of the simulated game, Minor could be cleared to restart his minor-league rehab assignment, which was previously paused in mid-April. Minor will likely need to make at least two starts in the minors before he's cleared to join the big-league rotation.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Throwing bullpen Wednesday

    Minor (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Minor's rehab assignment was paused two weeks ago after he experienced renewed shoulder soreness following a rehab start at Double-A Chattanooga. However, he's now been cleared to resume throwing and is expected to throw off a mound again Saturday if Wednesday's bullpen session goes well. A better idea of the left-hander's status should come into focus based on how he feels following his pair of bullpen sessions.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Rehab assignment paused

    Minor was pulled from his rehab assignment with Double-A Chattanooga due to renewed shoulder soreness following his start Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    It was Minor's first rehab start after entering spring training with the shoulder issue, and he labored through the outing with six runs allowed over 1.2 innings. The veteran left-hander will likely be re-evaluated before the next steps in his rehab program are determined, but the setback will push back his potential season debut even further.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Struggles in rehab start

    Minor (shoulder) allowed six runs on five hits (including two homers) and a walk over 1.2 innings for Double-A Chattanooga, striking out one in the process. He also had some shoulder soreness after the start.

    Minor didn't appear in any spring training games, so while this result was disappointing, it also wasn't too surprising. It would be a shock if he returned to the big-league club next week as the veteran left-hander is likely slated for more rehab appearances.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Suffers setback

    Minor (shoulder) reported shoulder soreness after his rehab outing with Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor struggled in the appearance, though that alone was not particularly alarming considering he did not appear in any spring training games. News of a setback is more concerning, and the end result could mean his return from the injured list is delayed. Minor's continued absence should increase the chances of Nick Lodolo remaining in the rotation.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Rehab assignment to begin Wednesday

    Minor (shoulder) will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor threw 35 pitches in a simulated game Friday and will now continue his progress towards his first start of the 2022 season. Assuming he needs only one rehab outing, Minor could be activated as early as April 18 and remain on regular rest.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Rehab start coming soon

    Minor (shoulder) threw 35 pitches in a simulated game Friday and could pitch in a minor-league rehab start for his next step, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor is eligible to return from the IL as early as April 14, though with the minor-league rehab start upcoming, a return from the IL is likely at least five days later than that.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Targeting mid-April return

    Minor (shoulder) will throw a simulated game Friday and hopes to make his 2022 debut sometime in mid-April, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor is on the 10-day injured list to begin the season, but manager David Bell is optimistic the southpaw will be able to return after a relatively minimal absence. It's encouraging Minor will face hitters once again Friday, and he'll presumably shift his focus toward building up his workload ahead of his return to game action.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Placed on injured list

    Minor (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Minor is expected to rejoin the Reds in mid-to-late April, so his placement on the injured list to begin the 2022 campaign was expected. In his absence, Vladimir Gutierrez, Reiver Sanmartin, Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo will round out Cincinnati's starting rotation behind Opening Day starter Tyler Mahle.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Live bullpen session

    Minor (shoulder) threw a live bullpen session Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor's session was considered an important step in his road to recovery. He's still due back with the Reds in mid-to-late April.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Mid-to-late April return

    Reds manager David Bell said that Minor (shoulder) is tentatively slated to return in mid-to-late April, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Once Minor returns, he'll likely be limited to 3-to-4 innings in his first outing or two. This probably gives the back end of the Reds rotation (Vladimir Gutierrez, Nick Lodolo, Reiver Sanmartin and Hunter Greene) at least two and maybe three starts to sort out who remains in the rotation once Minor and Luis Castillo come back.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Faces live hitters

    Minor (shoulder) threw a live bullpen session Thursday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Minor will begin the season on the injured list, though he will travel north with the team from spring training. That combined with the fact he has been able to continue throwing suggests his absence isn't likely to extend far into the campaign, barring a setback. Minor's short-term absence will likely give Nick Lodolo the chance to start the sixth game of the regular season, which falls on April 13 against the Guardians.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: Opening on injured list

    Manager David Bell confirmed Minor (shoulder) will begin the regular season on the injured list, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Bell previously intimated the veteran left-hander could be delayed to begin the season due to some shoulder soreness, so it's not a major surprise Minor will end up on the shelf. There's no specific timeline for his return, though Bell also said he expects Minor to be ready "sometime in April." Luis Castillo (shoulder) will also open on the IL, which provides prospects Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo an improved chance of being in the Opening Day rotation.

  • Reds' Mike Minor: May be delayed to begin season

    Manager David Bell said Thursday he anticipates Minor (shoulder) being "slightly delayed" to begin the regular season, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Minor has dealt with shoulder soreness early in spring training and is feeling better with two weeks remaining until Opening Day, but Bell said the left-hander is unlikely to have enough time to build up prior to the first week of the season. If the 34-year-old ultimately requires a stint on the IL to begin the year, Hunter Greene, Nick Lodolo and Riley O'Brien should be in the mix to fill in as starters.
