Reds' Albert Almora: Pops fifth homer
Almora went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Dodgers.
He took Tyler Anderson deep in the fifth inning to tie the game at 4-4, but it was the last gasp for the Reds' offense. Almora has gone yard three times in the last five games to give him five homers on the year, and since returning from the restricted list in late May after not being allowed north of the border for a road trip to Toronto due to his unvaccinated status, the 28-year-old has locked down a starting spot for Cincinnati by slashing .294/.307/.529 with 11 runs and 21 RBI in 24 contests....

Reds' Albert Almora: Starting Wednesday after all
Almora (hip) will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Almora was initially excluded from the lineup after manager David Bell noted that the 28-year-old was dealing with hip tightness, but the Reds evidently saw enough progress from Almora during his pregame workout to include him in the lineup. Kyle Farmer will instead take a seat in the series finale while Almora picks up his fourth start in five games.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Albert Almora: Removed from Thursday's game
Almora exited Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks after the fifth inning due to an apparent injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Almora attempted to make a diving catch in the top of the fourth inning before striking out in the bottom half of the frame. Although he was able to remain in the game initially, he was replaced defensively to begin the sixth. It's not yet clear what injury Almora is dealing with, and he should tentatively be considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Diagnosed with sprained shoulder
Almora was diagnosed with a sprained shoulder after leaving Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports
Almora went 0-for-2 with a strikeout Thursday prior to exiting the game at the end of the fifth inning. However, his injury doesn't seem to be a significant concern. The 28-year-old will test the issue prior to Friday's series opener, and he's considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Reaches twice, steals base
Almora went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 5-4 loss Sunday against Washington.
Almora swiped his second bag of the season in the first inning after singling. He added a walk in the eighth inning. The veteran has started 10 straight games for the Reds, going 13-for-38 with two homers and 11 RBI. Almora is experiencing a renaissance in Cincinnati, hitting .309 after struggling with a .216 average in 421 at-bats in the previous three seasons.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Likely to fill in for Naquin
Almora will start in left field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.
Though he's getting the start at Tommy Pham's (calf) normal spot in left field, Almora may be in store for a full-time role in right field moving forward after the Reds placed Tyler Naquin (quadriceps) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. While either Naquin or Pham sat out each of the last five games, Almora started every time and went an impressive 9-for-20 with a home run, seven RBI and four runs. Manager David Bell said he expects Pham to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, but Almora has performed well enough of late to receive the first chance to replace Naquin ahead of Aristides Aquino and TJ Friedl....

Almora went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI during Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Giants.
The Reds gave up a two-run lead in the top of the eighth inning Sunday, but Almora brought the team closer in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer.

Reds' Albert Almora: Fourth straight start
Almora will start in left field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Giants.
Almora, who went 5-for-12 with a double, four RBI and three runs across the Reds' last three games, will make his fourth straight start Sunday, with all of them coming in left field. Everyday left fielder Tommy Pham (suspension) is eligible to return to the lineup in the Reds' next game Tuesday in Boston, so Almora is expected to move into a fourth-outfielder role later this week....

Reds' Albert Almora: Back from restricted list
Almora was reinstated from the restricted list Monday.
The outfielder was placed on the restricted list prior to Friday's series opener versus the Blue Jays, but with the Reds back from Canada he was reinstated prior to Monday's matchup with the Cubs. Almora has started sporadically this season, posting a .296 average with two doubles and an RBI over 27 at-bats in nine contests.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Contract selected by Reds
Almora's contract was selected by the Reds on Monday.
The 28-year-old filled in for the Reds while Nick Senzel (illness) was on the COVID-19 injured list, and Almora will remain with the major-league club after Senzel was activated Monday. Over nine games with Cincinnati, Almora has hit .296 with two doubles, four runs, an RBI and a stolen base, and he should serve mainly as a depth option in the outfield now that Senzel is healthy....

Reds' Albert Almora: Lands on restricted list
Almora (undisclosed) was placed on the restricted list prior to Friday's game at Toronto.
Almora is one of four players to be placed on the restricted list ahead of Friday's series opener in Toronto, which likely means they are all unvaccinated and unable to enter Canada. Aristides Aquino will join the big-league club as outfield depth for this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Retreats to bench
Almora is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Guardians.
While Tyler Naquin received two turns as the Reds' designated hitter and while TJ Friedl sat out Sunday's 1-0 loss, Almora picked up starts in center field in each of the final three games of the Reds' weekend series in Pittsburgh. Both Naquin and Friedl are back in the outfield Tuesday and Tyler Stephenson (head) and Kyle Farmer (general soreness) are healed from their minor injuries coming out of Monday's off day, so Almora is expected to serve as a fourth outfielder moving forward. He'll likely lose his spot on the 26-man active roster whenever Nick Senzel (illness) is ready to return from the COVID-19-related injured list.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Sits in second straight
Almora is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
The Reds are giving Tyler Stephenson a start at designated hitter rather than behind the plate for Wednesday's series finale, which leaves no room for Almora in the outfield while Cincinnati goes with Tommy Pham, TJ Friedl and Tyler Naquin from left to right. As soon as Cincinnati returns Nick Senzel (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list, Almora will be a logical candidate to move off the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Takes seat Tuesday
Almora is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.
TJ Friedl will draw a start in center field in place of Almora, who had been included in the lineup in four of the Reds' past five games. Almora will likely stick in a near-everyday role in the Cincinnati outfield until Nick Senzel (illness) is cleared to return from the COVID-19-related injured list.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Filling in for Senzel
Almora will start in center field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Brewers.
With four starts in the Reds' last five games, Almora appears to have settled in as the team's primary center fielder while Nick Senzel (illness) remains on the COVID-19-related injured list. Almora has done well in his limited action with the big club to date, going 4-for-12 with a double, a stolen base and two runs.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Albert Almora: Two hits in season debut
Almora went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout during Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Brewers.
Almora had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday after Nick Senzel (undisclosed) and Tyler Naquin (undisclosed) landed on the COVID-19 list. The defensive-minded outfielder only has 92 plate appearances in the majors since 2019, so he's expected to be sent back to Triple-A when Senzel and Naquin are cleared to return.... See More ...
