Reds' Alex Blandino: Token start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandino is getting a token start Tuesday against the Indians, playing shortstop and batting eighth. He's giving Jose Peraza a day off from the starting lineup.

Blandino is getting his first start since July 1, and has gotten only three at-bats since then. His reward for staying patient? A start against Trevor Bauer. He's hitting .221/.307/.279 on the season.

Reds' Alex Blandino: Playing time curtailed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandino hasn't started a game since May 20 against the Cubs, though he's been a pinch-hitter in nearly every game that he hasn't started since the return of Eugenio Suarez. However, he is in the starting lineup Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks, batting leadoff and playing shortstop.

Blandino has hit .268/.355/.329 in his time with the big club this year, with just three extra-base hits and no stolen bases so far. Unless and until the Reds give up on Jose Peraza or decide to trade Scooter Gennett, there's just not a path for playing time for him. Making matters more urgent for him is that Nick Senzel just returned to Triple-A Louisville from extended spring training, and the Reds will likely want to get a look at him by the end of the summer.

Reds' Alex Blandino: Should see role decline with Suarez back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandino will make his first MLB start at second base and bat eighth Thursday against the Braves, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Since being recalled from Triple-A Louisville on April 9, Blandino has received all nine of his starts at third base, settling in as the primary option at the position while Eugenio Suarez (hand) was on the disabled list. With Suarez having made tremendous progress in his recovery and gaining clearance to come off the disabled list and return to the lineup Thursday, Blandino will no longer be in store for regular reps at the hot corner, but he'll stick in the starting nine thanks to his ability to play elsewhere in the infield. It's worth noting, however, that Blandino's inclusion in the lineup over the lefty-hitting Scooter Gennett likely has more to do with the fact that a southpaw (Sean Newcomb) is starting for the Braves. Expect Blandino to ride the pine more frequently and act as a utility man so long as he sticks around with the big club.

Reds' Alex Blandino: Heads to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandino is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Braves, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Blandino is in the midst of a modest three-game hitting streak, but he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting each of the previous four games at third base. Cliff Pennington will start at the hot corner and hit seventh in his stead Monday.

Reds' Alex Blandino: Rides pine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blandino is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.

Blandino started all four games in the weekend series with St. Louis, though he could only muster one hit in that span. This marks the second consecutive game in which he won't start, allowing Cliff Pennington to log another start at the hot corner.
