  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Handed another loss

    Gutierrez (0-6) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Cubs.

    Gutierrez took the mound for the first time since May 11 and tossed three scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fourth. He gave up an RBI double to Ian Happ followed by Patrick Wisdom's two-run blast. Gutierrez is now 0-6 with an ugly 8.70 ERA through seven starts this season. He was removed from the rotation earlier this month but never made an appearance out of the bullpen. The 26-year-old is currently lined up to face the Giants at home this weekend but it's unclear if he'll get another start.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Set to start Monday

    Gutierrez is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gutierrez hasn't made an appearance since being shifted to the bullpen May 13, but he'll rejoin the rotation, at least for one start, for Monday's series opener versus Chicago. The 26-year-old has a 8.65 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 19:19 K:BB across 26 innings (six starts) this season.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Moving to bullpen

    Gutierrez will shift to a bullpen role, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gutierrez's first six appearances of the season came as a starter, but he posted an 8.65 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in 26 innings while posting an 0-5 record. The right-hander will presumably serve as a middle reliever out of the bullpen, while Connor Overton will remain in the rotation. Gutierrez will be an option to serve as a spot starter at some point if needed.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Still looking for first win

    Gutierrez didn't factor in the decision during Wednesday's 14-11 win over the Brewers after giving up four runs on six hits over 4.2 innings. He had six strikeouts and two walks.

    The 26-year-old was staked to a 7-0 lead of the first two innings but was unable to last the necessary five frames in order to qualify for his first win of the year. The no-decision was still progress for Gutierrez, as he took the loss in each of his previous five starts. The right-hander has an 8.65 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 19:15 K:BB across 26 innings and lines up to pitch during the two-game set in Cleveland next week.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Torched by Brewers

    Gutierrez (0-5) took the loss in Wednesday's 18-4 defeat at the hands of the Brewers, surrendering seven runs on eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Gutierrez got shelled in this one, giving up two homers, including a Rowdy Tellez grand slam in the bottom of the third inning. He has now allowed 13 runs over his last two starts, helping lead to an inflated 8.86 ERA and 2.02 WHIP with 13 strikeouts over 21.1 innings in five starts. Given his struggles thus far, the Reds may well explore other starting options before Gutierrez's next turn comes up.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Misses out on two-start week

    Gutierrez is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Brewers in Milwaukee, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gutierrez was initially lined up to start the series opener in Milwaukee on Tuesday, but an off day Monday allowed the Reds to reorder their pitching schedule. As a result, Tyler Mahle will move to the front of the order and start Tuesday, setting him up to make a second turn Sunday against Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Gutierrez will be limited to the one start Wednesday for this week, making him an unpalatable fantasy option in the majority of leagues.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Struggles over four

    Gutierrez (0-4) got the loss Wednesday after he pitched four innings, giving up six runs on five hits and six walks while striking out two against the Padres.

    Gutierrez struggled to command the strike zone in this one, throwing 46 of his 88 pitches for strikes while walking a season-high six batters. The 26-year-old made it through the first inning unscathed but surrendered a run in the second inning on a Luis Campusano sacrifice fly. The wheels fell off in the third frame where he gave up another four runs, topped off by a three-run homer by Jurickson Profar. The sixth and final run against him came after he had exited the contest in the top of the fifth. Gutierrez's season numbers now sit at a 7.41 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 17.0 innings.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Walks four in loss

    Gutierrez (0-3) allowed three earned runs on two hits and four walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Padres.

    Gutierrez worked three scoreless innings to begin the start, but he surrendered a two-run home run in the fourth inning. That accounted for the majority of the damage against him, though he also allowed a third run in the fifth frame on an RBI double by Trent Grisham. Gutierrez was particularly wild Wednesday, as he hit two batters in addition to the four free passes he surrendered. Through 13 innings this season, Gutierrez has a 5.54 ERA, and his 9:9 K:BB is among the indicators that his lack of success is largely of his own doing.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Takes second loss

    Gutierrez (0-2) took the loss in Friday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in four innings.

    After a clean first inning, Gutierrez surrendered one run apiece in the second, third and fifth innings to fall in line for the loss. That's now consecutive losses for the 26-year-old, who has gone fewer than five innings and thrown under 80 pitches in each start. He's tentatively lined up to face off against the Padres on Wednesday.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Downed by Atlanta

    Gutierrez (0-1) took the loss Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over 4.1 innings as the Reds fell 2-1 to Atlanta. He struck out four.

    It wasn't a particularly sharp season debut for Gutierrez, who threw 45 of 76 pitches for strikes, but the Cincinnati offense also gave him little support. The 26-year-old right-hander could have a hard time hanging onto his rotation spot this year once everyone is healthy with top prospects Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo getting looks, and Gutierrez is facing a tough matchup in his next scheduled start Friday on the road against the Dodgers.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Starting team's third game

    Manager David Bell said Wednesday that Gutierrez will start the Reds' third game of the season April 9 in Atlanta, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Coming into the spring, Gutierrez was expected to battle prospects Reiver Sanmartin, Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo in the Opening Day rotation, but the Reds will have room for all four pitchers with Luis Castillo (shoulder) and Mike Minor (shoulder) both set to begin the season on the injured list. Though he wasn't a heralded prospect entering the 2021 campaign, Gutierrez fared well following an early-season call-up from Triple-A Louisville and ended up sticking in the rotation for much of the year. Gutierrez wasn't especially interesting from a fantasy standpoint, however, as he finished with a 4.74 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 8.5 K-BB% in 114 innings with the Reds. His low strikeout rate (17.7 percent) makes him a lower-upside fantasy target than all of Sanmartin, Greene and Lodolo, even though he may have greater job security than all of the prospects.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Rotation spot likely

    Gutierrez entered spring training as a favorite to win a rotation spot, and injuries to Luis Castillo and Mike Minor make it even more likely that Gutierrez will start, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gutierrez may have a rotation spot, but there are plenty of red flags regarding his performance, starting with his measly 17.7 K% last season, along with a 9.3 BB%. The Reds have a number of young pitchers on the rise, some of whom might make the Opening Day roster, and others that could surpass him in the rotation in short order.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Returning to rotation

    Gutierrez is working in spring training as a starter after finishing 2021 in the bullpen, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Despite the Sonny Gray trade, Gutierrez's hold on the job is tenuous after he wore down during the stretch last season. The addition of Mike Minor takes away one spot, so at best Gutierrez is the team's No. 4. His role will depend upon when Hunter Greene, Nick Lodolo and Brandon Williamson are ready, as well as whether Reiver Sanmartin can win a role.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Unlikely to start again in 2021

    Gutierrez won't start when his turn in the rotation comes up this week, and manager David Bell wouldn't commit Monday when asked if Gutierrez would pitch again this season, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gutierrez hasn't been completely shut down, and the Reds don't have a scheduled starter for Sunday's season finale against the Pirates, so it's possible he gets the nod that day. He's clearly fading recently, however, as he's thrown a combined 9.2 innings over his last three starts while allowing 13 runs on 17 hits, striking out just six while walking eight. He's tossed 131 total innings this season after throwing zero last year, so the Reds may decide not to ask him for anything more.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Lasts 2.2 innings Saturday

    Gutierrez didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Nationals after allowing four runs on five hits and four walks across 2.2 innings, fanning three.

    Gutierrez failed to complete four innings for the third appearance in a row, and he's gone winless over his last six contests as well. The right-hander has given up three or more runs in four of his five appearances in the current month, posting an 8.50 ERA across 18 innings in that stretch.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Chased in fourth

    Gutierrez tossed 3.1 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in Monday's win over the Pirates. He didn't factor into the decision.

    The 26-year-old allowed consecutive home runs to Yoshi Tsutsugo and Bryan Reynolds in the first inning and didn't really recover after that, surrendering three more runs in the third inning. He gave up five runs for the second time in five starts. After posting six straight quality starts from July 27 to Aug. 22, Gutierrez has struggled to an 8.84 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 18.1 innings over his last five outings.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Early exit Wednesday

    Gutierrez didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Pirates, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks over 3.2 innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

    It was another poor performance from the 25-year-old rookie, who has failed to complete four innings in three of his last four starts. Gutierrez has gone 0-2 during that stretch with a 7.80 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB through 15 innings, but despite his late-season struggles the Reds are still 1.5 games back of the Cardinals for the second wild-card spot in the NL.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Pitches five strong

    Gutierrez tossed five innings of one-run ball while allowing two hits, two walks and striking out six in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs. He did not factor into the game's decision.

    The right-hander surrendered his only run on a first-inning solo home run by Ian Happ. It was the first time he made it to five innings since Aug. 22. In his previous two starts he combined to pitch 6.1 innings while allowing eight runs. Gutierrez will look to continue his success from this start in his next expected outing Wednesday versus the Pirates.

  • Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Chased early by Tigers

    Gutierrez (9-6) took the loss in Friday's 15-5 rout at the hands of the Tigers, giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk over 3.1 innings. He struck out one.

    All four of the hits off Gutierrez went for extra bases, including homers by Jonathan Schoop and Jeimer Candelario. The rookie right-hander has been hit hard in his last two starts and saddled with the loss in three of his last four. Gutierrez has a 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 76:36 K:BB through 99.1 innings on the season.
