  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Out of Friday's lineup

    Friedl is not in the lineup Friday at Pittsburgh.

    Friedl started the last two games and will take a seat after going 0-for-4 with a walk. He also committed two errors. Jose Barrero will start in center field for the Reds, batting eighth.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sits against righty

    Friedl is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

    The lefty-hitting Friedl took a seat in Sunday's 9-2 win over the Nationals with a lefty (Josh Rogers) on the mound for Washington, but the 26-year-old will stick on the bench for a second day in a row with the Reds opposing a right-hander (Connor Overton) on Monday. In Friedl's stead, manager David Bell will give Delino DeShields a spin in center field after DeShields went 2-for-2 with three walks Sunday.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Retreats to bench

    Friedl isn't starting Thursday's game against the Nationals.

    Friedl will be out of the lineup after he went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs, two RBI and a walk across his last four appearances. Jose Barrero will start in center field and bat eighth.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Gets second straight start

    Friedl will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Friedl will stick in Cincinnati outfield for the second straight day after going 0-for-1 with a run-scoring sacrifice fly in Tuesday's 6-2 loss. The lefty-hitting rookie looks like he could occupy the larger side of a platoon in center field with Jose Barrero or Delino DeShields for the rest of the season with Tyler Naquin (ribs) unlikely to play again until a potential postseason run.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Headed to Cincinnati

    Friedl had his contract selected by the Reds on Saturday.

    Friedl has played the entire 2021 season at Triple-A Louisville and posted a .264/.357/.422 line across 448 plate appearances. He'll now be set for his major-league debut and could get meaningful playing time with Jesse Winker (ribs), Tyler Naquin (ribs) and Shogo Akiyama (hamstring) all on the injured list.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Added to player pool

    Friedl was added to the Reds 60-player pool Friday.

    Friedl spent last season at Double-A and had a .235/.347/.385 slash line with five homers and 13 stolen bases in 65 games. The 24-year-old is unlikely to see the majors this season, but his experience at the alternate training site could prove significant in the absence of a minor-league season.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Slumping at Chattanooga

    Friedl went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout with Double-A Chattanooga on Monday and is now 2-for-his-last-19.

    Friedl was hot initially after his return from shoulder sprain, going 5-for-14 with three doubles and a triple in his first three games back from the IL, but he's since gone cold. Overall, the 23-year-old is batting just .213 in 119 plate appearances with Chattanooga this season. However, he's walked as many times as he's struck out (17) and has swiped seven bags already. Chances are, Friedl will advance to Triple-A within the next couple months.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Heads to IL with shoulder sprain

    Friedl was placed on the 7-day injured list Monday at Double-A Chattanooga due to a sprained shoulder, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Friedl sustained the injury while completing a head-first slide as part of a two-hit, four-RBI performance in Sunday's 6-5 win over Biloxi. The 23-year-old, who is slashing .181/.302/.264 with one home run and four steals in Southern League play, is without an official timetable to return.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sent to minor-league camp

    Friedly was assigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Friedl spent half a season at Double-A Pensacola last year, hitting .276/.359/.360. He could return there to start the season or open at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: To join Reds' big-league camp

    Friedly was invited to major-league spring training Wednesday.

    Friedl reached Double-A for the first time last June, performing capably with a .276/.359/.360 line and 19 steals in 67 games for Pensacola. It would be a surprise to see him jump all the way up to the big leagues to start the season but a debut later in the year is certainly a possibility.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Jumps to Double-A

    Friedl was promoted to Double-A Pensacola on Thursday.

    Friedl fared much better in his second stint with High-A Daytona, slashing .294/.405/.412 across 64 games with the Tortugas before earning a promotion to Double-A. The 22-year-old can run and has also shown solid plate discipline and improvement in the power department over the past season.

  • Reds' T.J. Friedl: Moves up to High-A Daytona

    Friedl was promoted Monday from Low-A Dayton to High-A Daytona, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    After Friedl went undrafted last summer due to confusion over his status, the Reds were able to sign the high-upside outfielder last August. He quickly emerged as one of the organization's top prospects in the lower minors upon signing with the Reds and has carried over that success to 2017 by slashing .284/.378/.472 with 31 extra-base hits and 14 steals in 292 plate appearances at Dayton. Friedl's speed is considered his best tool, but as a left-handed hitter with burgeoning pop and sound plate discipline, there's plenty to like about his overall profile.
