Reds' Phillip Ervin: Leading off in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin will lead off and play left field in Friday's Opening Day game against the Tigers.

How exactly the playing time will break down in a crowded Reds outfield this season remains to be seen. It looks as though the right-handed Ervin will be preferred to lefties Shogo Akiyama and Jesse Winker in left field with a southpaw on the mound like Tigers' Opening Day starter Matthew Boyd. It's not clear if he'll play often enough against righties to have broader fantasy relevance, but the fact that he's leading off Friday is at least a good sign for his value in deeper leagues. He owns a career .907 OPS against lefties compared to a .687 mark against righties, making him an excellent fit for a platoon role.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Near roster lock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is a near lock to make the Reds' initial 30-man roster when the season begins, Mark Sheldon of reports.

This was already assumed back in March, when Ervin was playing well and Aristides Aquino was struggling, but the disclosure that Aquino will train at the Reds' secondary complex over the next three weeks cemented Ervin's spot. It helps that he's a right-handed bat when many of the Reds' other hitters bat lefty.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Roster spot still looks good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin remains a good bet to win a roster spot with the Reds whenever baseball resumes play after hitting .409/.480/.773 in spring training, Mark Sheldon of reports.

Even with the Reds having a crowded outfield, Ervin benefits from having the ability to play all three outfield spots, and the Reds would rather he be a reserve on the big league club than someone like Aristides Aquino, who they'd rather see play every day down in Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Projected Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is projected to make the Reds' Opening Day roster, though he's not in line for a starting slot, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Rosecrans predicts that Aristides Aquino will begin the year in Triple-A, in part because he has options and in part because he needs more regular at-bats there. Ervin, on the other hand, is someone they are comfortable using as a reserve.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Sitting in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is not in Sunday's lineup against the Pirates.

Brian O'Grady gets the start in center field and will hit eighth against righty Trevor Williams.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Posts walk-off homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 1-for-4 with a solo walk-off home run and a walk during the 4-3 extra-innings victory against the Phillies on Thursday.

While the 27-year-old has played in 75 games, he's only recorded 169 at-bats this year. He's made the most of his opportunities, though, posting a .296 average and .521 slugging percentage. Ervin has slumped a little lately, going 7-for-29 (.241) in his last 11 contests, but during that stretch he also has five extra-base hits, including three homers. Ervin also has six home runs, 18 RBI, 23 runs and three steals this year.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Added to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin was added to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Ervin was set to come off the bench Wednesday, but fellow outfielder Nick Senzel was scratched from the lineup for an undisclosed reason; and as a result, Brian O'Grady will start in center field, and Ervin will get the nod in left.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Racks up three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a victory over the Cardinals on Sunday in the second game of a doubleheader.

Ervin plated Cincinnati's first run with a single in the second and capped the scoring with a 408-foot solo shot to left field in the sixth. The multi-hit game was his eighth this season and upped his slash line to .310/.366/.532 over 172 plate appearances.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.

Nick Senzel is back in the lineup after a two-game absence due to a thumb injury, leaving no room in the outfield for the Ervin. While making two starts in center field over the weekend in Pittsburgh, Ervin went hitless in seven at-bats.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Gets fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin will start in left field and will bat sixth Sunday against the Cardinals, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

He'll crack the lineup for a fourth consecutive game while Jesse Winker tends to a back injury. Winker is expected to be available off the bench for the series finale, suggesting that he could be ready to reclaim a starting role early during the upcoming week. Whenever Winker is ready to go, Ervin will likely shift back into a fourth-outfielder role and see most of his action against left-handed pitching.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: On bench for second time in series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

He'll sit for the second time in the four-game series, with his only two starts coming against a pair of left-handed pitchers (Max Fried and Dallas Keuchel). Even with Cincinnati trading away another corner outfielder in Yasiel Puig earlier in the week, Ervin looks like he may end up sticking in a short-side platoon role.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is not starting Friday against Atlanta.

The playing time situation in the outfield corners in Cincinnati remains unclear following Yasiel Puig's departure. Ervin has started just one of the last three games, with Aristides Aquino and Jesse Winker each starting twice.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Drives in three off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 1-for-2 with a triple, a walk, three RBI and a run scored Tuesday in the Reds' 14-6 win over the Brewers.

Though he didn't start the contest, Ervin delivered the knockout blow upon stepping in as a pinch hitter for Jesse Winker in the fifth inning. He took advantage of the righty-on-lefty matchup with Brewers reliever Alex Claudio, smashing a bases-loaded triple to give the Reds an 8-0 lead. Ervin will remain on the bench for Wednesday's series finale but should see regular starts versus left-handed pitching while he's up with the big club.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Smashes pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin hit a solo home run in a pinch-hit appearance Sunday against the Cardinals.

Ervin got the Reds on the board in the eighth inning with a solo blast, but St. Louis would take a 3-1 victory in the series finale. The 27-year-old has made the most of his opportunities so far this season, batting .347 with two home runs and 10 RBI over 35 contests.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Ties club record in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 6-for-6 with a double, a triple, a run scored, three RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's wild 17-9 win over the Rockies.

The six hits tied a franchise record for the Reds held by three other players, although it had been 70 years since anyone had joined the club. Ervin's steal was also his first of the year, and the huge performance boosted his slash line to .357/.410/.571, albeit in only 61 plate appearances. Despite the historic night, expect the 26-year-old to remain primarily a platoon option against LHP, limiting his fantasy appeal.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Heads to bench after three starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.

Ervin started all three games of the Reds' series with the Cubs over the weekend, going 5-for-10 with a home run, three RBI and three runs in those contests. Each of the starting assignments came with the Reds opposing left-handed pitchers, so Ervin looks like he'll merely serve as a short-side platoon option in the outfield. Jesse Winker will check back into the starting nine in favor of Ervin with right-hander Adrian Houser on the hill for Milwaukee.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Consecutive starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin started again in left field for the Reds on Saturday in place of Jesse Winker after going 2-for-4 with a homer and double in Friday's win over the Cubs.

It's interesting that he got the nod over Jose Peraza, who in the past got some starts in the outfield when the Reds were facing a left-hander on the mound. We'll see what happens again on Sunday with the Reds due to face another lefty.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Replaces Senzel in center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin replaced Nick Senzel in center field Friday night after Senzel left with a headache, going 0-for-2 with two strikeouts.

Since getting the call back up from Triple-A Louisville over the weekend, Ervin has gone 1-for-10 with six strikeouts, leaving him with a .192/.323/.308 slash line through 16 games in the majors this year.

June 15, 2019 01:24 PM
Reds' Phillip Ervin: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin was recalled by the Reds on Saturday.

Ervin has recorded an .838 OPS in 10 games for the Reds this season and owns an .867 OPS in 40 games for Triple-A Louisville. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time in Cincinnati. Wandy Peralta (hip) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

May 24, 2019 02:16 PM
Reds' Phillip Ervin: Optioned to Louisville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

Ervin had gone 4-for-16 with four walks in his 20 plate appearances for the Reds this season. He'll make way on the roster for reliever Matt Bowman, who was called up from Louisville in a corresponding move.
