Reds' Jesse Winker: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is not in the lineup Monday against Milwaukee.

Winker sits despite righty Chase Anderson starting for the Brewers and despite the fact that he's gone 6-for-16 with four walks over his last four games. Phillip Ervin gets the nod in left field.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Returns to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

Winker missed some time earlier in the week due to side tightness, but he returned to the starting lineup Tuesday, going 0-for-3 with a walk. He'll head back to the bench Wednesday as the Reds look to ease him back into action. Derek Dietrich is starting in left field and hitting fifth in his place.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Returns to starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker (side) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, batting leadoff.

In this case, the best-case scenario played out in regards to Winker's injury, and he's able to return to the lineup just two days after it occurred.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Enters as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker (side) went 1-for-1 with a single and a run scored in the Reds' 6-3 victory over the Cubs on Monday.

Winker came into the game in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter for starting pitcher Luis Castillo. He singled and later scored the go-head run for the Reds. Winker has been dealing with some side tightness since Sunday's game against Colorado, but he passed all pre-game tests prior to Monday's contest, so it would appear as though Winker will be back in the starting lineup sooner rather than later.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker (side) is available off the bench Monday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Winker left Sunday's game in the middle of an at-bat due to side tightness. His absence doesn't appear to be a long one, however, as he passed pre-game tests Monday. Derek Dietrich starts in left field in his absence.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker (side) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs.

Winker's absence was fully expected after he was forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Rockies with an injury to the lower left side of his body. The Reds are planning to send him in for a more thorough examination Monday, which should provide more specificity regarding the injury along with a potential recovery timeline. For now, the team is viewing Winker's injury as a day-to-day concern.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Awaiting exam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker confirmed that his injury was to his lower left side or back, and that he'll be evaluated further Monday to determine whether he needs to go on the IL, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "My lower left back, side area tightened up," Winker said. "I was feeling some tightness in my right rib cage as well."

Winker hasn't had an injury of this nature before. Given that the Reds have no off days scheduled until July 24, they might be compelled to make a roster move if Winker needs to sit out more than a day or two.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Leaves with apparent oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker left Sunday's game against the Rockies in the middle of an at-bat after appearing to suffer an oblique or ribcage injury.

Winker was taken out during a 2-2 count and replaced by Sonny Gray as a sacrificial lamb for the remainder of the at-bat. Jose Peraza, who had pinch hit earlier in the inning, took his place in the field.

July 13, 2019 02:24 PM
Reds' Jesse Winker: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker will sit against lefty Kyle Freeland and the Rockies on Saturday.

Winker hasn't started against a lefty since late May. Phillip Ervin will start in left field, as he's done against the previous six southpaws the Reds have faced.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Outhits Brewers singlehandedly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker went 3-for-3 and scored the game's only run in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Winker hit a leadoff double in the bottom of the first inning and came around to score the only run the Reds would need in a 1-0 victory. His three hits were one more than the entire Brewers team could manage. Winker's batting average rose nine points to .257 thanks to his big night, though he's well below the .298 and .299 batting averages he recorded in his first two seasons.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Rare day off versus righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Despite going 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 8-6 loss in the series opener, Winker will find himself on the bench as the Reds oppose a right-handed starter (Chase Anderson). Considering Yasiel Puig received Monday off, manager David Bell may just be looking to keep some of the Reds' bench players involved now that Scooter Gennett's recent return from the injured list leaves one less spot available in the lineup. With Winker sitting Tuesday, Phillip Ervin will check into left field.

Reds' Jesse Winker: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Winker will once again head to the bench against a left-hander with Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs. Phillip Ervin will start in left field and bat sixth in his absence.

June 29, 2019 10:48 AM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Out again against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.

He has been sitting against lefties lately, and that will be the case again with Jose Quintana on the hill for Chicago. Phillip Ervin will start in left field and hit seventh.

June 28, 2019 12:40 PM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Out against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Cubs.

Winker has an .882 OPS in June but will head to the bench Friday with left-hander Cole Hamels on the mound for the Cubs. Phillip Ervin will start in left field and bat seventh in his absence.

June 26, 2019 01:20 PM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker will be on the bench against lefty Andrew Heaney and the Angels on Tuesday.

As per usual, Winker won't get to start against a southpaw. Phillip Ervin gets the nod in left field in his absence.

June 22, 2019 09:40 AM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers.

He gets the day off despite a righty (Chase Anderson) being on the mound for the Brewers and Winker's dynamite 1.571 OPS over his last five games. Derek Dietrich moves out to left field in his absence, with Jose Peraza starting at second base.

June 21, 2019 01:16 AM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Batting second Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker will serve as the Reds' No. 2 hitter and will start in left field Wednesday against the Astros.

Winker will make his third start in a row in one of the top two spots in the order, with his prior two assignments coming as the leadoff man. It's unclear if manager David Bell plans on sticking with Winker in the top third of the lineup, however, as the Reds won't be playing with all their regulars Wednesday with usual No. 2 hitter Joey Votto gets a breather for the day game.

June 17, 2019 01:32 PM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker will head to the bench against lefty Wade Miley and the Astros on Monday.

Winker sits for the second time in three games, though he should be in line for an extended run of starts the rest of the week as the Reds face six straight righties. Phillip Ervin starts in left field.

June 17, 2019 12:56 AM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Records four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winker went 4-for-5 with a double, home run and five RBI in an 11-3 victory against the Rangers on Sunday.

This performance snapped a streak where Winker went 0-for-6 during a four-game span. With the four hits, Winker's average is now as high as it's been all season. The five RBI was also a season high and matched the total he recorded in the category during all of May. Winker is hitting .244 with 11 home runs, 23 RBI and 31 runs in 205 at-bats this season.

June 15, 2019 03:08 PM
Reds' Jesse Winker: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
