Naquin went 5-for-6 with a double and four RBI in Monday's 15-11 extra-innings loss to the Mets.
The five knocks were a new career high for the 30-year-old, but Naquin's efforts couldn't get the Reds into the win column. He still hasn't recaptured his early-season power stroke, but since the beginning of July, Naquin is slashing a palatable .280/.333/.380 with a homer, nine RBI and six runs in 14 games.
Naquin went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and two RBI in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Brewers.
The double was only the second extra-base hit that Naquin has produced over his last 16 games, with the veteran outfielder plating just five runs over that stretch. Though Naquin is beginning to cool off after a red-hot start to the season, he appears fairly secure in an everyday role in the outfield while Nick Senzel (knee) remains sidelined.
Naquin is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Brewers.
Naquin enters Friday on a four-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 5-for-14 with two RBI and two runs scored. He'll take a seat against lefty Eric Lauer as Aristides Aquino mans center field.
Naquin went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Cubs.
He snapped an 0-for-12 skid with the fifth-inning blast. Naquin is batting .243 (17-for-70) since the beginning of June with only three of his 13 homers on the season, but he's retained a near-everyday role long after his early-season power surge evaporated.
Naquin (wrist) is back in the starting lineup Friday against the Cubs.
Naquin did not start in the previous four games due to right wrist soreness, though he did get two at-bats off the bench in Thursday's win. He'll bat fifth and play center field Friday.
Naquin (wrist) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.
Naquin will miss a fourth consecutive game due to right wrist soreness, and he hasn't appeared off the bench in any of those contests. Manager David Bell was hopeful that the center fielder could return to the lineup Thursday, but he'll need at least one more day to recover. Aristides Aquino will start in center field and bat seventh.
Naquin (wrist) isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Padres.
Naquin was scratched from Monday's lineup due to right wrist soreness, and he'll be held out for a third straight game. Shogo Akiyama will pick up a start in center field and bat eighth in place of Naquin, whom manager David Bell said could return to the lineup in Thursday's series finale, according to Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Naquin (wrist) will sit Tuesday against the Padres.
Naquin was expected to sit Tuesday after getting scratched Monday due to right wrist soreness, though he likely would have sat even if fully healthy against the left-handed Blake Snell. Aristides Aquino will handle center field in his absence.
Naquin (wrist) is unlikely to start Tuesday against the Padres but is expected to be available off the bench, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Naquin was scratched from Monday's matchup due to right wrist soreness, but the issue shouldn't force him to miss extended time. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Naquin was scratched from the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies due to right wrist soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Naquin took a seat against left-handers in two of the last three games, and he'll remain out of the lineup Monday following his late scratch. It's not yet clear whether the 30-year-old could be available off the bench, but Shogo Akiyama will take his place in center field and bat fifth.
Naquin is not in the starting lineup Sunday against Atlanta.
Naquin will retreat to the bench against lefty Kyle Muller. Scott Heineman will start in center field and bat eighth during the series finale.
Naquin will sit against Atlanta lefty Drew Smyly on Friday.
Naquin has started just a single game against a southpaw all season, a setup that makes sense given that he owns a career 76 wRC+ against lefties but a 108 mark against righties. Aristides Aquino will handle center field in his absence.
Naquin went 4-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored during Tuesday's 10-7 win over the Twins.
The 30-year-old broke a 7-7 tie during the ninth inning with a 420-foot shot to left center to put the finishing touches on a perfect day at the plate. Naquin entered the contest 2-for-20 over his previous eight appearances, but he busted out of that slump with his first four-hit game of the year.
Naquin will sit against lefty J.A. Happ and the Twins on Monday.
Naquin has only started once against a lefty all season, so it's no surprise to see him hit the bench here, even with an extra lineup spot available under American League rules. Scott Heineman will start in center field.
Naquin is not starting Tuesday's game against the Brewers.
He sits for the second consecutive day as the Reds go up against left-hander Brett Anderson. Naquin has performed respectably against lefties with a .367 OBP in 60 plate appearances, but he remains a much more capable hitter against right-handers, getting on base at a .433 clip. Scott Heineman will start in center field Tuesday.
Naquin is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.
With lefty Eric Lauer on the hill for Milwaukee, the lefty-hitting Naquin will cede center-field duties to the righty-hitting Aristides Aquino in the series opener. With 11 home runs and 43 RBI on the campaign, Naquin is rapidly closing in on career-high totals in both categories (14 and 43, respectively), but he has yet to master same-handed pitching. Over 25 plate appearances versus lefties this season, Naquin has posted a modest .653 OPS.
Naquin went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Rockies.
The outfielder led a 14-hit attack by the Reds, producing his first multi-hit game since May 17. Naquin hasn't been able to maintain his early-season power display, but he's still hitting .333 (8-for-24) through eight games in June with a homer, three runs and five RBI.
Naquin will sit Friday against the Rockies.
Naquin missed a pair of starts this week with a tight hamstring but returned to the lineup Thursday. There has been no word of a setback; his absence is likely due to the fact that the Reds will face left-hander Kyle Freeland. Naquin has started against just a single southpaw all season, so it's no surprise to see him on the bench in favor of Scott Heineman on Friday.
Naquin (hamstring) will start in center field and bat cleanup Thursday against the Brewers.
Naquin checks back into the starting nine after sitting in the first two games of the series with a tight left hamstring, an injury he picked up over the weekend. He'll put his season-long, seven-game hitting streak on the line Thursday.
Naquin (hamstring) isn't starting Wednesday against the Brewers.
Naquin was removed from Sunday's game with a tight hamstring, and he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight game. It's not yet clear whether the 30-year-old could be available off the bench, but Scott Heineman will take over in center field and bat seventh.
