Player Outlook
Spencer Steer tends to be overshadowed a bit in the Reds' rebuild, as he doesn't have the power of Christian Encarnacion-Strand or the speed of Elly De La Cruz or the hit tool of Matt McLain. However, Steer does a lot well and showed in his first full season in Cincinnati that he has the potential to be a long-term foundational piece for the organization. At 25 years old, Steer struck out just over 20 percent of the time and notched 23 homers and 15 steals while moving around between first base (73 games), third base (47 games), outfield (47 games) and second base (16 games). While he may not light up Statcast with his batted-ball numbers -- in fact Steer ranked in the bottom 26 percent of the league in hard-hit rate -- he has an exceptional approach at the plate and does not often go chasing outside the strike zone. He had more homers and a higher OPS on the road than he did at home last season, so it wasn't all GABP-driven.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Homers in loss

    Steer went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Brewers. Steer gave the Reds a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning when he belted his eighth home run of the season. He's been quiet of late, having entered the contest on a 4-for-31 (.129) run with one RBI over the previous nine games. Despite the drop in production, Steer leads Cincinnati with 42 RBI.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Logs steal in loss

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Cleveland. Steer recorded his 12th steal in 65 games, putting him on pace to surpass the 15 he had over 156 games in 2023. Speed was not a hallmark to his game in the minors, but the running Reds have changed that. On an unrelated note, the team received news that first baseman Christian Encarnacion-Strand is mulling season-ending wrist surgery. That means Steer, who has been the primary fill-in for Encarnacion-Strand in recent weeks, may continue on as Cincinnati's regular at first base.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Settling into groove at plate

    Steer went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 13-3 win over Colorado. After a rough May in which he posted a .176 average and .629 OPS, Steer has gotten off to a strong start to June. He's delivered multiple hits in all three games on the month, going 8-for-14. Steer's recent form is reminiscent of his body of work early in the season, when he hit .324/.435/.563 with 18 RBI over his first 20 games.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Knocks fifth home run

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Dodgers. Steer got the Reds' offense started with a three-run blast in the first inning. He snapped a 17-game homerless drought, during which he'd posted an unsightly .527 OPS. Despite a terrific start to 2024 (1.264 OPS through 11 games), Steer now owns a .227/.343/.390 slash line with 17 extra-base hits through 204 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Out again Tuesday

    Steer (ankle) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres. Steer was held out of Sunday's game with an ankle injury and remains out of action after Monday's off day. The good news is Steer said Tuesday that he's feeling better and expects to be available off the bench, just as he was Sunday when he served in a pinch-hit capacity, per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Taking seat Sunday

    Steer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. Steer is mired in an 0-for-16 slump and will head to the bench Sunday. Will Benson will shift to left field for the series finale in Los Angeles while Stuart Fairchild and Jake Fraley start in center and right, respectively.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Two more RBI

    Steer went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and two RBI in Friday's 4-2 win over San Francisco. Steer's first-inning, two-out double plated the Reds' first run, then his third-inning single tied the game. He has four RBI in the last two games and leads the Reds with 27 runs driven in.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Snaps team scoreless streak

    Steer went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Orioles. Steer's ninth-inning single plated Cincinnati's lone run, marked his team-leading 23rd RBI and snapped the club's 26-inning scoreless streak at home. The Reds started five players batting .200 or lower and have had issues scoring of late, batting .185 with 78 strikeouts over the last eight games (six losses). Steer's .333 average and .639 slugging with runners in scoring position could be more helpful if the Reds can get on base in front of him. The club ranks 27th in MLB with a .292 on-base percentage.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Clubs solo homer

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base during Wednesday's 6-2 loss to San Diego. Steer advanced to a perfect 8-for-8 on steal attempts this season and belted his fourth home run of the campaign -- and his first since April 6 -- off of Joe Musgrove in the first inning. He's cooled off since going on a tear to open the season and is batting 5-for-40 (.125) with four RBi and three runs scored during his last 11 games.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Fills in at first base

    Steer started at first base and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Texas. Steer moved from his usual left field to first base, replacing the injured Christian Encarnacion-Strand (hand). The run batted in was just his second in the last 14 games, but Speer continues to the lead the club with 20 RBI through 28 games. The steal was his seventh, nearly half of the 15 he had over 156 games in 2023. Encarnacion-Strand may miss a few more games, per Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, and Steer could add to his games played at first base. So far, he's made four appearances there.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Covers first base

    Steer started at first base for an unavailable Christian Encarnacion-Strand (illness) in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to Seattle. He went 0-for-3. Steer was one of eight Reds in the order to go hitless against Mariner pitching. Elly De La Cruz's second-inning home run off Bryce Miller was the lone offense mustered by Cincinnati. Reds manager David Bell wasn't specific on Encarnacion-Strand's symptoms but mentioned he hadn't been feeling well ahead of the series in Seattle. Steer is 1-for-14 over the last four games but still has a .992 OPS on the season.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Cracks go-ahead grand slam

    Steer went 2-for-5 with a double, home run, four RBI and two runs in Monday's win over the Phillies. Steer stepped to the plate in the top of the 10th inning Monday against Connor Brogdon and hit a go-ahead 383-foot home run to give Cincinnati the lead for good. It was Steer's first career grand slam. The second-year Red looks to build upon his strong rookie campaign last season in which he slashed .271/.356/.464 with 23 home runs and 86 RBI.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Handling second base

    Steer started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's spring game against the Rangers. Steer made a third consecutive start at second base in the wake of Matt McLain's shoulder injury, which will land him on the injured list to start the season. The Reds have other options for the keystone, including Jonathan India and Santiago Espinal, who was acquired via trade Wednesday. Steer had been scheduled to see most of his time in the outfield this season, but McLain's injury and third baseman Noelvi Marte's 80-game suspension could alter the outfield plans for Steer.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Slated for outfield duty

    Steer is in line to play regularly in the outfield following the Reds' signing of Jeimer Candelario, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Cincinnati made a crowded infield situation even more crowded with its acquisition of Candelario. Steer is an infielder by trade, but he made 38 starts in the outfield in 2023 and would appear pegged for regular left field duty in 2024. Even with Steer slated to play mostly in the outfield next season, the Reds would still appear to have at least one more infielder than they have starting spots. Jonathan India remains a good bet to be traded.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Steer is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at St. Louis. Steer had a strong finish to the season with a .942 OPS while starting the past 11 games, but he'll take a seat for Sunday's finale. The 25-year-old has put together a strong rookie campaign with 23 home runs, 15 steals, 86 RBI and an .820 OPS in 665 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Joins homer party

    Steer went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run in Friday's 19-2 win over St. Louis. Steer launched a solo home run in the second inning -- he was one of six members of the starting lineup to go deep in a win that kept the Reds' playoff hopes alive. He's hit safely in 12 of the last 13 games, going 16-for-49 (.327) with nine extra-base hits, eight RBI and seven runs scored. The home run was Steer's 23rd over 155 games.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Secures three hits

    Steer went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Monday's 7-3 victory over the Twins. Steer laced a double off Joe Ryan in the fourth inning for his 32nd of the year. He later added an RBI-single off Dallas Keuchel in the seventh inning for his third hit in the contest. Steer is looking to close out the year on a strong note and is now batting .278 with four homers, 10 RBI and eight runs over 61 at-bats in September. The 25-year-old is slashing .269/.358/.457 over 147 games amidst a breakout season.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Not in lineup

    Steer will sit Saturday against the Mets. Steer owns an .837 OPS in the month of September and an .808 OPS on the year, but he'll hit the bench after starting 35 consecutive games. The timing of his off day is somewhat unusual given that he's homered in each of his last two games, but it seems to be merely a routine rest day.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Launches another homer

    Steer went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 5-3 win over the Mets. Steer homered for a second straight day and the fourth time in the last 11 games, upping his season total to 22. Cincinnati manager David Bell likes to take advantage of Steer's versatility and moves him around the lineup. Over the last six games, Steer made starts at first base, third base and right field; he also moved mid-game to left field and second base during that stretch. For the season, Steer has started 60 games at first base, 46 at third base, 34 in left field, 15 at second base, six at designated hitter and two in right field.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Logs steal in loss

    Steer started at second base and went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 9-4 loss to St. Louis. Steer, who never stole more than eight bases in a season while in the minors, stole his 13th bag for the Reds. His stint as the primary fill-in at second base could be ending soon, as Jonathan India (foot) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Friday. India is expected to return Tuesday, which means manager David Bell can take advantage of Steer's versatility, moving him between third base, first base and left field.
