  • Reds' Connor Overton: Makes return in relief role

    Overton came on in relief during Saturday's 10-1 loss to the Brewers and struck out one while allowing five earned runs on four hits and three walks. Overton, who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday after having not pitched for the Reds since May 17 due to a stress reaction in his lower back, essentially piggybacked starter Graham Ashcraft (biceps), who covered four innings in his own return from the IL. Prior to landing on the shelf, Overton had produced a 1.82 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in 24.2 innings over his four starts with the big club, but the underlying numbers (4.72 xFIP, 3.4 K-BB%) offered little hope that he would be able to maintain that level of run prevention. Regression came hard Saturday for Overton, who may work out of the bullpen for the remaining week and a half of the season if the Reds avoid losing any more starting pitchers to injuries.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Activated by Cincinnati

    Overton (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday. Overton was on the injured list since late May but has been cleared to return for the final week and a half of the regular season. The right-hander recently made a pair of rehab starts at Triple-A Louisville and posted a 2.35 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 7.2 innings. The team had him build up as a starter in the minors, and he'll likely have a chance to start for the Reds early next week if he isn't used as a long reliever during the team's weekend series against Milwaukee.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Another rehab start on tap

    Overton (back) is scheduled to make his second rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Even though Overton has resided on the injured list since late April and the season is nearing its end, manager David Bell said that the Reds' initial plan is to have the right-hander build up for a starting role. In his first rehab start Tuesday with Louisville, Overton struck out four while allowing three unearned runs on two hits and two walks. Considering that he tossed 61 pitches in that outing, Overton could be cleared to rejoin the Reds as soon as the back end of next week if he builds up to the 70-to-80-pitch range during his upcoming start with Louisville on Sunday.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Starting up rehab assignment

    Overton (back) will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Louisville. Overton's next appearance with Louisville will be his first at any level since May 17, as he was diagnosed just a few days later with a stress reaction in his back and was placed on the injured list. Prior to hitting the shelf, Overton had turned in a 1.82 ERA in 24.2 innings over four starts with the Reds, but his extended stint on the IL means that he likely won't have enough time to build back up for a starting role. He's expected to require multiple outings at Louisville before he potentially rejoins the Reds later this month or in the first week of October as a relief option.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Beginning rehab assignment

    Overton (back/hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with the Reds' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Overton has been on the injured list since sustaining a back injury since late May, and his rehab process was slowed last month after he tweaked his hamstring while ramping up in Arizona. However, the right-hander will return to game action Wednesday and is expected to make another rehab start at Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. Since there's just under a month remaining in the regular season, the Reds will likely choose to bring Overton back as a reliever once he's deemed fully healthy.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Rehab slowed by hamstring injury

    Overton (back) tweaked his hamstring while ramping up in Arizona and is without a clear timeline to begin a rehab assignment, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Overton has resided on the 60-day injured list since May 23 due to a stress reaction in his lower back, but he was believed to be tracking toward a return at some point in September. Though he hasn't been shut down from throwing and will continue to do long toss, the hamstring issue presents a new hurdle he'll have to overcome before facing hitters and eventually pitching in games. He may not have enough time to build up for a starting role and may be relegated to the bullpen if he rejoins the Reds at any point in 2022.

  • Reds' Connor Overton: Ready for mound work

    Overton (back) will throw a bullpen session in the near future, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Overton's back injury has confined him to the sidelines since May, but he is on the verge of taking an important step in his recovery. Barring any setbacks, Overton will have a chance to rejoin Cincinnati's bullpen before the season comes to a close.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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.
