  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Homers in loss

    De La Cruz went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to Milwaukee.

    De La Cruz's fifth-inning homer was his third in three games. He's reached base safely in all 12 games thus far, going 14-for-44 (.318) with three walks and a hit-by-pitch. It's a nice start to the season for De La Cruz, who has dazzling advanced metrics: 93.1 mph average exit velocity (89th percentile), 51.9 hard-hit percentage (85th) and 14.8 barrel percentage (87th). Unfortunately, his .458 BABIP suggests a correction is due; De La Cruz's expected batting average is .244.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Homers twice in win

    De La Cruz went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs, four runs scored and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Brewers.

    De La Cruz put on a full show Monday night against the Brewers, blasting a 450-foot solo homer, his first of the season, in the fifth inning. He then added a second homer later with a dazzling inside-the-park homer in the ninth inning. The shortstop even gathered his sixth steal of the year just to add to the spectacle. De La Cruz is slashing .297/.366/.595 over his first 40 plate appearances with a 42.5 percent strikeout rate.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Steals two bags

    De La Cruz went 0-for-2 with a walk and stole two bases in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Mets.

    De La Cruz saw an end to his eight-game hit streak to the start the season, but he managed to make an impact. He stole the two bases after a sixth-inning walk but was left stranded at third. The infielder ranks fifth in MLB with five steals.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Scores three runs, swipes bag

    De La Cruz went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Mets.

    Much has been made of De La Cruz's strikeouts early on this season -- the swing-and-miss concerns are valid -- but he now has a 13-game hitting streak dating back to last season. He also has three steals in four attempts so far in 2024. The 22-year-old has been locked into the No. 6 spot in the lineup against both righties and lefties early on and looks to have some leash under manager David Bell to work out the remaining kinks in his game.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Hits in four straight

    De La Cruz went 1-for-5 with a stolen base in Monday's 6-3 extra-inning win over Philadelphia.

    De La Cruz has one hit in all four games to start the season and has also stolen two bases (caught once) thus far. He also struck out four times Monday and has been punched out nine times in 17 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Elly De La Cruz: Batting sixth in opener

    De La Cruz will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Thursday's season opener against the Nationals.

    De La Cruz hit second often for the Reds this spring and manager David Bell had indicated that's where he was leaning toward putting the youngster. However, the skipper ultimately settled on Will Benson in the two hole and De La Cruz lower in the batting order. It's not great news for De La Cruz's immediate fantasy prospects, but he's certainly capable of hitting his way up higher in the lineup.
