Reds' Jose Barrero: Reinstated, sent down Monday
Barrero (hand) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.
Barrero's rehab assignment was scheduled to end Wednesday, and he'll remain in Louisville now that he's back to full health. The 24-year-old appeared in 14 games during his rehab assignment and slashed .204/.316/.449 with three homers, six runs, six RBI and a stolen base. He'll be a candidate to provide utility depth for the major-league club at some point later in the year.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: In store for lengthy rehab
Reds manager David Bell confirmed Sunday that Barrero (hand) will likely require the full 20-day rehab window at Triple-A Louisville before being activated from the 10-day injured list, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Sidelined since undergoing surgery in late March to repair a hook of the hamate bone of his left hand, Barrero was cleared to join Louisville on Friday to begin the rehab assignment. In addition to picking up at-bats to regain his timing at the plate after having not played in a competitive game since October, Barrero will need to prove he can handle the rigors of playing a full nine innings in the middle infield on back-to-back days while he's at Louisville. The Reds may not have an everyday role in the big leagues available for him once he's back to full strength, so Barrero could still be activated from the IL and optioned to Louisville once his 20-day rehab window concludes....

Reds' Jose Barrero: Starting rehab stint
Barrero (hand) is reporting to Triple-A Louisville to begin a rehab assignment Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Barrero has been on the injured list all season after undergoing surgery on his hand in March, but he's now in the final stages of his rehab program. The 24-year-old figures to require an extended run with Louisville to get up to speed before being activated from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Nearing rehab assignment
Barrero (hand) could start a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville later this week, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Barrero has been out all year after undergoing surgery on the hamate bone in his left hand in late March. He was originally given a six-week timetable but hit a setback in early May. He's making progress again, however, so while he's already missed his originally timeline, his return doesn't appear to be too far off.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Resumes swinging
Barrero (hand) has resumed swinging in the batting cages, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Barrero recently suffered a setback in his recovery but has been progressing since then. While the 24-year-old hasn't yet hit in any extended spring training games, he's been playing the field in those matchups and has picked up a bat once again. It's not yet clear when he'll be in the mix to rejoin the big-league club.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Hits snag in recovery
Barrero (hand) suffered a setback in his recovery, though he's back to where he was prior to the setback, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Barrero played the field in extended spring games in late April but had to back off for a bit. He's able to take the field again now, but he's still a few steps away from being ready to return.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Playing field recently
Barrero (hand) has been playing in the field at the Reds' extended spring training facility recently, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
The Reds indicated last week that Barrero had begun a hitting progression, and his return to fielding indicates another step in his recovery. The 24-year-old is expected to ramp up his hitting next week and should be in the mix for a rehab assignment sometime after that. Although he's made progress in his recovery recently, he doesn't yet have a timetable to rejoin the major-league club.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Starts swinging again
Barrero (hand) is set to begin a hitting progression Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Barrero has been idle for the past month while he waited for his left hand to heal after undergoing surgery to repair his hamate bone, but the 24-year-old looks like he's now ready to begin ramping up for a return. Since he'll essentially need to complete spring training all over again following his shutdown, Barrero is likely at least a week or more away from beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. Whenever he's activated from the IL, Barrero could push for work at third base or second base, depending on the health of Jonathan India (hamstring), Mike Moustakas (biceps) and Donovan Solano (hamstring)....

Reds' Jose Barrero: Opening on 10-day injured list
Barrero (hand) will begin the season on the 10-day injured list, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Barrero underwent surgery on the hamate bone in his left hand in late March and was given a six-week timetable. That means he'll get to avoid the 60-day injured list, but it will still be awhile before he's ready to go. Kyle Farmer should be the everyday shortstop until he returns.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Undergoes hand surgery
Barrero underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the hook of his hamate bone in his left hand, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Barrero could have had the chance to push for a starting role to open the season, but he'll now be on the injured list until at least early May. Kyle Farmer looks to be safe at shortstop in Barrero's absence.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Dealing with left wrist soreness
Manager David Bell said Saturday that Barrero hasn't yet appeared in a Cactus League game due to left wrist soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bell said that the 23-year-old will be re-evaluated in the coming days. Once he's fully healthy, he should see increased opportunities for playing time after the Reds traded Eugenio Suarez to the Mariners on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Expected to miss six weeks
Barrero has a hamate injury in his left hand and is expected to miss approximately six weeks, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Barrero didn't appear in the first few Cactus League games due to left wrist soreness, and the issue will force him to miss time to begin the regular season. The 23-year-old will receive a second opinion from a hand specialist Monday, but it appears as though he'll be unavailable for the first few weeks of the regular season. Barrero should have a chance to carve out at-bats once he returns to full health, but Donovan Solano should see a slight uptick in playing time to begin the year.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Opportunities open up
Barrero could see an heavier workload than previously expected for the Reds this season following the departure of Eugenio Suarez on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Suarez and Jesse Winker were traded to the Mariners on Monday, which provides an opportunity for Barrero since none of the returning players are infielders. Barrero appeared in 21 big-league games last season and hit .200/.286/.320 in 56 plate appearances while seeing some time in center field, but he's focusing on shortstop at spring training this year. Kyle Farmer handled most of the work at shortstop in 2021 but could be more involved at third base with Suarez now out of the picture.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Focusing on shortstop
Barrero will focus on shortstop in spring training rather than center field, Reds GM Nick Krall told Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer. "He's a shortstop. He's coming in, and we'll evaluate him where he is," Krall said. Barrero will report to camp late due to a flight/family issue, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Barrero played sparingly at shortstop after his promotion to the majors last season, only playing nine of his 23 games there as the Reds rode out most of the stretch run with Kyle Farmer at the position. That dynamic might not be in play in 2022, with the Reds having diminished expectations, at least based on their lack of offseason player activity.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Starting in outfield
Barrero (undisclosed) is playing center field and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 23-year-old hasn't played since Tuesday, but he returns to make his first career start in the outfield. Barrero has hit .190 in 21 at-bats this season and draws a tough matchup in Clayton Kershaw on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jose Barrero: Sore following collision
Barrero won't start Sunday against St. Louis, as he's still sore after exiting Saturday's game following a collision with teammate Tyler Naquin, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Reds' Jose Barrero: Back in big leagues
Barrero was recalled by the Reds on Friday.
Barrero takes the spot of Kyle Farmer, who was placed on the paternity list. He'll fill in for Farmer at shortstop for Friday's game against the Cardinals and may start there Saturday and Sunday as well, but it's not clear whether or not he'll have a roster spot once Farmer returns....
