  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Out as expected Sunday

    Farmer (general soreness) is out of Sunday's lineup against the Pirates.

    The plan all along was to hold Farmer out of action through the weekend and take advantage of Monday's off day before a potential Tuesday return. Matt Reynolds is starting at shortstop and leading off.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Sidelined by soreness

    Farmer's absence from the lineup for Saturday's game against Pittsburgh is due to general soreness, Mark Sheldon of reports.

    The issue doesn't seem particularly serious, as Farmer will be available off the bench, but he isn't expected to return to the lineup until Tuesday's game in Cleveland. Matt Reynolds starts at shortstop Saturday and will likely remain there for Sunday's series finale.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Farmer isn't starting Saturday against the Pirates.

    Farmer started in the last eight games but hit just .107 with two doubles, five RBI and four runs. Matt Reynolds will take over at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Gets Thursday off

    Farmer is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers.

    Farmer will get his first day off of the season after starting in each of the Reds' first 24 games and hitting .269 with seven doubles, zero home runs, 10 RBI, seven runs and two stolen bases. Matt Reynolds will spell Farmer at shortstop in the day game after a night game.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Four doubles in loss

    Farmer went 4-for-5 with four doubles, two RBI and a run in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

    Farmer notched an RBI double off MacKenzie Gore in the third inning, driving in Tommy Pham. He doubled again in his next at-bat in the sixth inning and proceeded to score off a Colin Moran sacrifice fly. He later doubled two more times and drove in another run. The four extra-base hits were his first since April 17 and he now has seven doubles in 64 at-bats.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Reclaims leadoff gig

    Farmer will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Wednesday against the Padres.

    After moving down to the No. 2 spot in the order in Tuesday's 6-2 loss, Farmer will be back in the table-setting role for the fourth time in five games Wednesday. With Jonathan India (hamstring) landing on the injured list Tuesday, Farmer looks like he'll have security near the top of the order. Farmer is hitting .317 and is getting on base at a .378 clip this season, but the lack of productive and/or healthy bats in the Cincinnati lineup at the moment may not help him pile up runs despite handling leadoff duties.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Leading off Saturday

    Farmer is starting at shortstop and leading off Saturday against the Dodgers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    It's no surprise that Farmer is in the lineup, as he's started every game this season. However, his presence atop the order is significant given that he has primarily hit eighth across his first eight appearances. With southpaw Julio Urias on the mound and Jonathan India (hamstring) sidelined, Farmer will get his chance to lead off.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Swipes bag in loss

    Farmer went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

    After his sixth-inning steal against the battery of Sean Newcomb and Travis d'Arnaud, Farmer is already halfway to his 2021 stolen base total. Adding a speed element would make Farmer much more interesting from a fantasy standpoint. He's otherwise a modest contributor, even with near-everyday playing time.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Reaches deal for 2022

    Farmer agreed to a one-year, $3.155 million contract with the Reds on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of reports.

    Farmer appeared in 147 games for Cincinnati last year and hit .263/.316/.416 with 16 home runs, 60 runs and 63 RBI in 529 plate appearances. The 31-year-old is poised to open the 2022 campaign as the Reds' primary shortstop.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Starting shortstop role solidified

    Farmer remains entrenched as the Reds' starting shortstop with Jose Barrero out for six weeks with a wrist issue, Mark Sheldon of reports.

    It's possible, maybe even likely, that Farmer will remain the starter at shortstop even when Barrero is healthy enough to play. In previous camps he'd get work at multiple positions in anticipation of being a utility player, but this year he's exclusively getting reps at shortstop.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Enters camp atop SS depth chart

    Farmer enters camp as the Reds' starting shortstop, but Jose Barrero can "force the issue," according to manager David Bell, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Farmer, who played through a sports hernia injury over the second half of last season, was worth 1.6 fWAR in 147 games, largely due to his strong defense. He hit .263/.316/.416 on the year, good for a career-best 91 wRC+. Given the direction of the franchise, the Reds will likely turn to the younger Barrero at some point, if not right out of the gate, unless Farmer tops his 2021 production.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Played through hernia

    Farmer played through a sports hernia injury over the second half of the season, Mark Sheldon of reported in October. He eventually sat out the final games of the season and found out he will not need surgery this offseason.

    So far the Reds have not signed one of the many quality free agent shortstops out there, nor is it anticipated that they will do so. Farmer still has to beat out Jose Barrero for the job, if the Reds don't opt to put Barrero in center field first.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Done for season

    Farmer (abdomen) will not play in either of the Reds' final two games, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Farmer was held out of Saturday's lineup due to an abdominal strain, and it was later revealed that he would also be sidelined Sunday. He'll close the season with a .263/.316/.416 line to go along with 16 home runs, 63 RBI and 60 runs scored. Jose Barrero starts in Farmer's place at shortstop while hitting sixth Saturday, and he may get another chance to start Sunday.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Not starting Saturday

    Farmer (oblique) isn't starting Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

    Farmer tweaked his oblique ahead of Friday's series opener, and manager David Bell acknowledged that the injury could keep the 31-year-old sidelined for the remainder of the year. Jose Barrero will take his place at shortstop and bat sixth Saturday.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Could miss rest of season

    Manager David Bell said Friday that Farmer could miss the remainder of the season after he tweaked his oblique prior to the series opener against the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Farmer was initially diagnosed with left abdominal soreness after he was scratched from Friday's lineup, and the injury could keep him out for the final two games of the regular season. Jose Barrero will likely continue to fill in at shortstop if the 31-year-old is held out.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Scratched from Friday's lineup

    Farmer was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Pirates due to left abdominal soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Farmer had recorded hits in five of his last six appearances, but he's apparently dealing with an abdominal issue. Whether he's available off the bench remains to be seen, but Jose Barrero will step in at shortstop and bat seventh.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Knocks grand slam

    Farmer went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Sunday's 9-2 win over the Nationals.

    Farmer hammered a grand slam off Ryne Harper in the sixth inning to give the Reds a huge 7-1 lead. The 31-year-old utility man has gone 12-for-36 (.333) with two homers and eight RBI over the last nine games. He improved his season OPS to .734 with 16 long balls and 63 RBI.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Crushes homer in win

    Farmer went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in the win over the Pirates on Monday.

    The shortstop blasted a Kyle Keller curveball over the fence in seventh inning for his 15th homer of the season. He has at least one hit in 8 of his last nine games. Over those contests, Farmer has batted .314 with four extra-base hits and six RBI.
