Reds' Tyler Naquin: Pops seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 9-2 loss to Cleveland.

His ninth-inning blast off Nick Wittgren did nothing to change the final outcome, but it was his first homer in 15 games. Naquin's early-season power surge has faded, but he's still hitting .271 on the year with seven home runs and 20 RBI in 27 contests.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Naquin had started the past three games in the Cincinnati outfield, but the return of second baseman Jonathan India from the COVID-19 injured list will likely result in the former falling back into more of a reserve role. Nick Senzel had been seeing more work of late at second base while India was out due to the health and safety protocols, but Senzel will head back to center field Tuesday now that Cincinnati is at full strength in the infield.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Gets third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin will start in center field and bat sixth Sunday against the Cubs.

Though Jesse Winker (back) returns to the lineup following a one-game absence, Naquin will stick in the Cincinnati outfield for a third straight game. Nick Senzel -- Naquin's main competition for the final spot in the Reds' everyday outfield -- will instead make his second start of the season at second base, filling in for Jonathan India, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. If the Reds decide to play Senzel at the keystone regularly while India is sidelined, both Senzel and Naquin would likely have clear paths to regular roles in the short term.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

While Nick Castellanos served as a suspension for the first two games of the series, Naquin picked up a pair of starts in right field and went 2-for-8 with a walk and three RBI. Though he won't have a clear path to an everyday role with Castellanos back in action Thursday, Naquin should continue to see semi-regular work while he continues to wield a hot bat. Naquin has slowed down a bit after a torrid start to the campaign, but he's still tied for second on the team with 0.6 WAR on the season.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin went 2-for-4 with two RBI on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Naquin has found his way into the Reds' lineup of late, most recently due to Nick Castellanos' suspension. His bat had cooled considerably since a very hot start, though he's now picked up an RBI in each of his last three games and has collected at least one hit in three of his last four starts. It remains to be seen if and how the Reds elect to get Naquin regular at-bats once both Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama (hamstring) return, though the latter may still be a couple weeks away from game action.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Gets third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin will start in right field and bat second Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

After filling in for the struggling Nick Senzel in center field for the final two games of the Reds' weekend series versus Cleveland, Naquin should now get the chance to play right field for the next two days while Nick Castellanos serves a suspension. Once Castellanos is back in the fold for Thursday's series finale, Naquin and Senzel will likely be fighting for one spot in the Reds' everyday lineup, with the performance of both players likely to dictate which of the two gets the bulk of the work. With a 1.068 OPS over 48 plate appearances, Naquin has been one of the Reds' standout hitters in the early going.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Sitting in Winker's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin is out of the lineup for Monday's game in San Francisco.

With five home runs and a double in only 36 plate appearances to begin the season, Naquin has been one of the pleasant surprises through the first week and a half of the campaign. He's benefited from some extra opportunities with Jesse Winker missing multiple games due to an illness and then a calf cramp, but Naquin will take a seat Monday with Winker cleared to play in the series opener in San Francisco. Naquin's power surge may allow him to get a longer look as part of a timeshare with Winker and Nick Senzel in left or center field, but his overall opportunities will likely take at least a slight hit now that Cincinnati has its Opening Day outfield back intact.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Drills another home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's win over Arizona.

Naquin blasted a massive 454-foot homer to right field in the fourth inning, marking his fourth long ball in his past three games and league-leading fifth overall this season. He also walked, stole second and scored a run in the sixth frame. Naquin's home-run total through seven games this season has already surpassed the four homers he hit across 40 contests in 2020. He should continue to see frequent playing time as long as he keeps swinging a hot stick.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Massive performance Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and seven RBI in Tuesday's 14-1 win over the Pirates.

The 29-year-old got the ball rolling on the rout with a solo shot in the first inning before taking Trevor Cahill deep again in the second with a three-run blast. Naquin is off to a blistering start to the season with three homers and 12 RBI in five games -- a startling change of pace after he managed only four home runs and 20 RBI through 40 games in 2020 with Cleveland. With a fairly modest track record as well as his expected fourth-outfielder role once Jesse Winker (illness) gets healthy, it's safe to say that Naquin won't be able to maintain anything resembling this level of production.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Back in leadoff role Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin will start in left field and bat leadoff Monday against the Pirates.

With Jesse Winker (illness) still in recovery mode, Naquin will pick up a third straight start and a second straight turn as the Reds' leadoff man. He provided an impact atop the order in the Reds' 12-1 win over St. Louis on Sunday, slugging a three-run blast off reliever Tyler Webb to break the game open in the sixth inning.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Gets another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin will start in left field and bat leadoff Sunday against the Cardinals.

After going 1-for-2 with a walk and two RBI while starting in place of Nick Senzel (shoulder) in Saturday's 9-6 win, Naquin will remain in the lineup for the series finale. He'll be filling in this time for Jesse Winker, who will take a seat after coming down with an illness Saturday. With Senzel checking back into the starting nine Sunday and Winker's absence from the lineup likely to be a brief one, however, Naquin should return to his normal fourth-outfielder role within the next few days.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Nabs roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds selected Naquin's contract Monday.

With Shogo Akiyama (hamstring) likely set to begin the season on the 10-day injured list, Naquin is expected to slot in as the Reds' fourth outfielder. The lefty-hitting outfielder has been a capable, if unspectacular, option against right-handed pitching through his first five years in the majors, cobbling together a .257/.286/.451 career slash line (93 wRC+) in those matchups.

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Heading to southern Ohio
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin signed with Cincinnati as a non-roster invitee Thursday.

Naquin won't have to move particularly far after spending the entirety of his professional career in the opposite corner of Ohio with Cleveland. The 29-year-old has been a legitimate big-leaguer over the course of his five seasons in the majors but fits best in a bench role, as he owns a career wRC+ of 100, a fine but unimpressive number for someone who mostly plays the outfield corners. He probably can't expect much more than a bench role with the Reds, and even that isn't a guarantee, as he's coming off a year in which he hit just .218/.248/.383 in 40 games.

Tyler Naquin: Cut loose by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin was non-tendered by Cleveland on Wednesday, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

He dazzled as a rookie in 2015 but has been a fringe regular at best in each of the last four seasons. Naquin hit .218/.248/.383 with four home runs in 40 games last season.

Indians' Tyler Naquin: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naquin is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

The 29-year-old typically hits the bench against left-handed starters, but he'll exit the lineup Sunday versus righty JT Brubaker. Naquin is 1-for-26 with 11 strikeouts over his past eight games. Jordan Luplow receives the start in right field for the season finale.

Indians' Tyler Naquin: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
