  • Reds' Connor Overton: Heads to 60-day IL

    The Reds placed Overton (back) on the 60-day injured list Monday, retroactive to Friday.

    The transaction ensures that Overton will be sidelined through the All-Star break and frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Aristides Aquino, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move. As Mark Sheldon of MLB.com notes, Overton will be shut down from throwing for 6-to-8 weeks after he was diagnosed Monday with a stress reaction in his lower back, so it may take until August before he's fully built up for starting duty. Once he's back to 100 percent healthy and fully stretched out, Overton may not have a spot waiting for him in the Cincinnati rotation, despite turning in a 1.82 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in 24.2 innings through his first four starts with the big club.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Facing long-term absence

    Overton said Monday that an MRI revealed a stress reaction in his lower back, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. He expects to miss 6-to-8 weeks due to the injury.

    The Reds will likely formally place Overton on the 15-day injured list prior to Monday's series opener versus the Cubs. Though the news of Overton's injury first surfaced when he was scratched ahead of his start in Toronto over the weekend, the 28-year-old right-hander relayed that he had been pitching through the issue throughout the season. Even though he was ostensibly less than fully healthy, Overton still managed to deliver a 1.82 ERA and 0.89 WHIP through four starts, though an anemic 3.4 K-BB% would have made him a prime candidate for regression had he continued to make regular starts for the Reds. Expect him to be sidelined through the All-Star break while he recovers from the stress reaction.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Getting checked by doctor

    Reds manager David Bell said that Overton is scheduled to meet with a doctor Monday to have his sore back examined, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Bell suggested that the checkup with the doctor will guide the Reds' decision on whether Overton needs to go on the 15-day injured list. If he's able to avoid the IL, Overton would be lined up to make his next start during the Reds' home series with the Giants over the upcoming weekend.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Scratched from Sunday's start

    Overton is dealing with back soreness and won't make his scheduled start Sunday against Toronto, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Overton was scheduled to start in Sunday's series finale in Toronto, but Graham Ashcraft will step in to make his first major-league start. Overton has been effective early in 2022, as he's posted a 1.82 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in 24.2 innings over four starts. However, it's not yet clear when he'll be able to make his next start or whether he'll require a trip to the injured list.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Quiets Guardians in no-decision

    Overton did not factor into the decision Tuesday in Cleveland, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk over 7.2 innings. He struck out two.

    Overton rode his sinking fastball to nine groundball outs. One of the two runs against him crossed the plate after he left the game, and he was in line for his second big-league win before Art Warren blew the save in the ninth. Overton now has a 1.82 ERA in 24.2 innings for the Reds, but the estimators say he's been way out over his skis with a 10:7 K:BB in that span. The 28-year-old righty will face a tough test this weekend in Toronto.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Sticking in rotation

    Overton will remain in Cincinnati's starting rotation, with his next start coming Tuesday at Cleveland, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Overton was called up in late April and has made three starts for the Reds, tallying a 1.59 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 8:6 K:BB over 17 innings. The 28-year-old will receive a longer look in the starting rotation, while Vladimir Gutierrez will shift to the bullpen.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Earns first win of season

    Overton (1-0) earned the win after allowing zero runs on three hits and four walks across 6.1 innings during Thursday's 4-0 victory over the Pirates. He struck out one.

    Despite a season high in walks, Overton was able to put together his best overall performance of the season. Across three starts with the Reds, the right-hander sports a 1.59 ERA across 17.0 innings. Overton's next start is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday's contest in Cleveland.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Allows two runs over 5.1 innings

    Overton did not factor into the decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates. He allowed two runs on six hits with four strikeouts against zero walks over 5.1 innings.

    The bar is not high on this Reds team; Overton has easily cleared that bar through two starts. He has a 2.53 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 10.2 innings. Overton is a 28-year-old journeyman with modest stuff, as evidenced by his career minor-league 8.3 K/9, but he's earned more chances to start with his performance so far.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Starting Game 1 Saturday

    Overton will start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates after Friday's game was rained out, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    The Reds' rotation is getting a little crowded, with Nick Lodolo and Luis Castillo expected back in the coming days, but the team will still give Overton a start this weekend even though they no longer needed to after Friday's game was postponed. Robert Duggar will start Saturday's nightcap.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Another start on tap

    Overton is listed as the Reds' starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Pirates in Cincinnati, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Nick Lodolo (back) initially looked like a candidate to return from the 10-day injured list to take the hill Friday, but the Reds could choose to save him for Saturday's doubleheader with Pittsburgh or push him back to next week if he needs more time to recover from his injury. In any case, Overton will make at least one more turn through the rotation after he delivered a credible performance in his season debut for the Reds over the weekend in Colorado. He worked 5.1 innings and took a no-decision on Coors Field, striking out three while limiting the Rockies to one run on three hits and two walks.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Strong showing in 2022 debut

    Overton did not factor into the decision Saturday against the Rockies. He allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings.

    Overton drew a tough assignment at Coors Field in his Reds debut. He more than held his own, inducing nine swinging strikes on 75 pitches and leaving in line for the win. The right-hander is a journeyman at 28 years old, having bounced around between several clubs in the minors before making nine appearances between Pittsburgh and Toronto last season. He may get another opportunity to start for Cincinnati next week with a doubleheader on the schedule.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Contract selected ahead of start

    Overton's contract was selected by the Reds on Saturday ahead of his scheduled start against the Rockies.

    Overton's first major-league start of the year comes in the tough environment of Coors Field. Through 19 innings for Triple-A Louisville this season, the 28-year-old owns a 2.84 ERA, striking out 22 batters while walking just two. Aristides Aquino was designated for assignment to clear space on the roster.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Added to taxi squad

    Overton was added to the Reds' taxi squad Friday.

    Overton has made four appearances (two starts) in Louisville this year and has recorded a 2.84 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 19 innings. He'll travel with the Reds during their weekend road trip to Colorado and is a strong candidate to start Saturday against the Rockies since Nick Lodolo (back) is on the 10-day IL.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Named Saturday's starter

    Overton will start Saturday's game against the Rockies, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Overton was added to Cincinnati's taxi squad Friday, and he'll have his contract selected Saturday to take Nick Lodolo's (back) place in the rotation. While the right-hander will have to pitch at hitter-friendly Coors Field during his team debut, he had strong results at Triple-A Louisville early in the year, posting a 2.84 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 19 innings over four appearances (two starts).

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Healthy for spring training

    Overton (shoulder) drew the start in an intrasquad game Thursday during the Reds' minor-league camp, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The news affirms that Overton is fully healthy after he concluded the 2021 season on the Pirates' injured list due to a right shoulder strain. Pittsburgh later outrighted Overton off its 40-man roster in November before he signed with Cincinnati on a minor-league deal. Overton should get the chance to stick around with the big club for spring training whenever the MLB lockout ends, but the 28-year-old doesn't look like a realistic candidate to win a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Lands minor-league deal

    Overton (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Overton made his major-league debut in 2021 and logged a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 15.1 innings across nine appearances (three starts) with the Pirates and Blue Jays. It's unlikely that his late-season shoulder injury will limit him to begin the 2022 campaign, and he'll serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Falls off 40-man roster

    Overton (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

    Overton made his big-league debut in 2021, posting an unremarkable 4.70 ERA in three starts and six relief appearances. He hit the injured list with a strained shoulder in late September, though he's expected to resume throwing sometime in November, giving him plenty of time to be ready to go by spring training.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Should start throwing in November

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Overton (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing in early-to-mid November, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Overton was shuttered for the season on Tuesday after being diagnosed with a right shoulder strain, but after taking the next month or so to rest up and recover, he should be in store for a relatively normal offseason. In nine big-league appearances (three starts) between Toronto and Pittsburgh this season, Overton submitted a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 15.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Overton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Tuesday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Overton started Monday's game against the Reds and gave up four runs on six hits while striking out two in one inning to take the loss. However, he apparently sustained a shoulder injury that will force him to miss the remainder of the season. The right-hander had lined up to serve as the opener during a game in the Pirates' weekend series against Cincinnati, and it's not yet clear who will start in his place. Overton made nine appearances (three starts) with the Blue Jays and Pirates this year and recorded a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 15.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Yields four runs in loss

    Overton (0-1) allowed four runs on six hits and took a loss against the Reds on Monday. He struck out two in one inning of work.

    Overton needed 39 pitches to get through just one inning of work. He coughed up four runs, including a two-run homer by Joey Votto. The 28-year-old has now given up eight runs across 3.2 innings over his last two outings, raising his season ERA to 4.70. Overton is projected to work as the opener again this weekend at home against the Reds.
