  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Held out again Friday

    Candelario (illness) remains out of the lineup for Friday's contest versus the Angels.

    There's a bug going around the Reds' clubhouse, as Christian Encarnacion-Strand will also miss a second straight game. Consider Candelario day-to-day. Santiago Espinal will be at third base Friday.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Not ready to start Wednesday

    Candelario (illness) remains out of the lineup Wednesday in Seattle.

    He'll give way to Santiago Espinal at third base for a second game in a row while he recovers from an illness. The Reds are off Thursday, so Candelario will have some additional time to shake off the ailment before Cincinnati opens its homestand Friday versus the Angels.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Scratched with illness

    Candelario was scratched from the Reds' lineup ahead of Tuesday's game versus Seattle due to an illness.

    Candelario was reportedly feeling under the weather Tuesday, so he will sit out while he recovers. Santiago Espinal will enter the lineup as Cincinnati's replacement third baseman and bat eighth.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Bops homer in loss

    Candelario went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-3 loss to the Mariners.

    Candelario, who slumped to start the season, hit safely for a third straight game following a two-day break (including a team day off) from playing. The home run was the second of the season for the corner infielder, whose average ticked up to .190 through 15 games.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Dropped in batting order

    Candelario went 2-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored and was caught stealing in Sunday's 11-4 win over the White Sox.

    Candelario delivered his first multi-hit effort of the season, including a two-run single in the fourth inning. Another first for the infielder was his placement in the batting order; Candelario's first 13 starts were at cleanup, but a season-opening slump dropped him to seventh Sunday against a right-hander. It's unclear if the switch-hitting Candelario will also be dropped against left-handers. On Monday, the Reds kick off a three-game set against the Mariners, who have righties scheduled to start all three contests.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Returns to action

    Candelario went 1-for-4 with a double and run scored in Saturday's 5-0 win over the White Sox.

    Candelario returned to action after being held out of Friday's game and was back in the leadoff spot despite a season-opening slump. He entered the game on a 1-for-16 run and without a hit in 10 straight at-bats.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Absent from Friday's lineup

    Candelario is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the White Sox.

    Candelario is off to a dreadful 7-for-46 (.152) start at the plate this season, but this will be his first day off. The Reds will roll with Santiago Espinal at third base in Chicago.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Average plummets

    Candelario went 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Brewers.

    Candelario has one hit over the last 18 at-bats, dropping his average to .152 and OPS to .535 for the season. Those are unbecoming numbers for a cleanup hitter. He's part of a big hole in the middle of the Reds' order along with third place batter Christian Encarnacion-Strand (.154/.417). The slump is causing Candelario to chase more than normal; he's swinging at a career-high 36 percent of offerings outside the zone.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Plays field Saturday

    Candelario started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, double and run scored in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Mets.

    Candelario, who sustained a sore elbow Thursday, has not missed any time because of it. He started at designated hitter Friday then returned to the field Saturday. Candelario's batting just .200 through 30 at-bats, but he's hit safely in six of eight games played.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Back in lineup Friday

    Candelario (elbow) will be the designated hitter and bat cleanup in Friday's game versus the Mets.

    Candelario had to exit Wednesday's game with a hyperextended right elbow, but he won't wind up missing any starts. It is possible that the switch hitter will be limited to DH duties for a bit, however, in order to protect the elbow.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Dealing with hyperextended elbow

    Manager David Bell said after Thursday's game against the Phillies that Candelario might just be dealing with a hyperextension of his right elbow, and the third baseman will be evaluated ahead of Friday's game against the Mets, according to Bally Sports Cincinnati.

    Candelario felt a stinger during a swing in his final at-bat Thursday. He hit a double on the next pitch but was replaced on defense as the team didn't want him aggravating the injury by throwing. Bell was optimistic the issue would be a minor one for Candelario.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Exits with apparent injury

    Candelario was removed from Wednesday's game against the Phillies due to an injury, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Candelario appeared to wince and point at his right elbow after a swing during the top of eighth inning. He was able to finish the at-bat, resulting in a double, but he was replaced on defense when the Reds took the field in the bottom of the frame. Cincinnati's medical staff will take a closer look at him, and more information about his injury should be available after Wednesday's contest.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Getting swing in shape

    Candelario started at third base and went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's spring game against the Rockies.

    Candelario, who launched his first spring home run, took awhile to get the bat going, but he now appears locked in. After going 2-for-25 (.080) over his first 10 Cactus League games, Candelario is 6-for-15 with three extra-base hits in his last four appearances. At the time he signed as a free agent, the 30-year-old corner infielder was expected to bounce between first and third base (with occasional starts at DH), but the 80-game suspension handed out to Noelvi Marte means Candelario will primarily handle the hot corner for the first three months of the season.
