Reds' Aristides Aquino: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI off the bench in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Aquino's second long ball of the year was punished 428 feet into the seats in left-center field. He's bounced up and down between Cincinnati and the alternate site this season, making a total of 11 starts (five versus left-handed pitching).

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was recalled by the Reds on Tuesday.

Aquino spent mere hours off the Reds' big-league roster, as he was optioned Monday night but returns Tuesday afternoon. He'll take the roster spot that had belonged to Eugenio Suarez, who landed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Optioned after win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was optioned to Cincinnati's alternate training site following Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Pirates, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Aquino will head back down to make room for Nick Senzel, who served as the 29th man Monday. Aquino is hitting .179 with a home run and five RBI over 15 contests this season for the Reds.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Connects for first home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run off the bench in Sunday's 10-5 win over the Cardinals.

Aquino's first homer of the year gave the Reds some insurance in the ninth and made things easier for Raisel Iglesias. One of the top stories in all of baseball last August, Aquino fizzled down the stretch last season and did not make the team out of summer camp. He has not been playing much since his latest recall, logging just 17 at-bats since Aug. 31, but this showing should at least earn him a start in one half of Monday's doubleheader.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was recalled by the Reds and will start Monday against the Cardinals, playing left field and batting sixth, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Aquino was sent down Saturday after serving as the Reds' 29th man during their doubleheader, but he'll return to the active roster Monday. The team has more depth in the outfield after acquiring Brian Goodwin from the Angels on Monday, so it's unclear how much playing time Aquino will see.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds optioned Aquino to their alternate training site after Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Cincinnati designated Aquino as the 29th man for the twin bill, so he was never expected to stay up with the big club beyond Saturday. He reached base in both of his plate appearances during the doubleheader, singling and drawing a walk.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Serving as 29th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was named the Reds' 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Aquino isn't in the lineup for Saturday's matinee, but he should be available for both games prior to presumably returning to the alternate training site. Aquino has gone 2-for-8 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base over five games with the major-league club this season.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was optioned to the Reds' alternate training site Monday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Aquino was on the 30-man roster over the past week while the Reds dealt with several absences from their lineup, but he'll head back to develop at the alternate training site. The 26-year-old appeared in five games during his most recent stint in the big leagues, going 2-for-8 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base. He should be one of the Reds' top options to call up if they're in need of assistance again this year.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was recalled by the Reds on Saturday.

Aquino was very hot and then very cold in his 56-game debut last season, though his overall .259/.316/.576 slash line was decent. The Reds seemed to believe the cold version of Aquino was a more accurate reflection of his abilities, however, as he spent summer camp training at the team's secondary site. He'll replace Matt Davidson, who tested positive for coronavirus, on the active roster. Davidson, who is also right-handed, served as the designated hitter on Opening Day against southpaw Matthew Boyd, a role Aquino could potentially fill against lefties in his absence.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino was among the Reds players optioned to their alternate training site, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Aquino struggled back in March during spring training but was making progress in training camp. Still, it was a numbers game for him following the Reds' signings of Nick Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama over the offseason.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Low on org. depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino is a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool but will not be among the group training at Great American Ball Park.

Shogo Akiyama, Nick Castellanos, Phillip Ervin, Mark Payton, Nick Senzel and Jesse Winker are the six outfielders who will be training at Great American Ball Park. Aquino will train with outfielders Stuart Fairchild, Travis Jankowski, Boog Powell and Scott Schebler, which is a bleak reflection of where he stands in the pecking order for playing time this season. He hit .077 with 11 strikeouts and two walks in 30 plate appearances in spring training.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Struggling in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino is 0-for-14 with six strikeouts and a walk so far this spring. He could begin the year at Triple-A Louisville to get regular at-bats, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic suggests.

This seems like a logical path for Aquino, who struggled in September after a dazzling debut in August last year. What might change that projection is if Nick Senzel or another outfielder needs to begin the season on the IL.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Fighting for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino enters spring training without a guaranteed roster spot, and could begin the season in the minors, given that he has options remaining, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I think they were more focused on not letting him beat them. I think they just pitched him tougher," Reds manager David Bell said.

After Aquino's monster August, he really struggled in September, posting a .619 OPS while chasing many more breaking pitches out of the zone. He had a 30.9 K% in September after only striking out 22.6% of the time in August. With the Reds adding Nick Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama to the outfield, Aquino has to beat out Nick Senzel and Jesse Winker for a starting spot, and would otherwise be better suited to playing in the minors every day than sitting on the bench - at least from the Reds perspective.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Reduced role likely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Reds signing Nick Castellanos, Aquino's role is likely to be reduced, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer speculates.

That might have been true even without the Reds signing Castellanos. The Reds have a multiplicity of alternatives in the outfield -- Castellanos, Shogo Akiyama and Nick Senzel are the most likely starters, but Aquino, Jesse Winker and even Philip Ervin or Travis Jankowski could factor in as well. A trade to improve the Reds at shortstop or catcher could still be in the offing, but that's far from guaranteed.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Posts 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks during a 3-1 victory against the Pirates on Sunday.

The 25-year-old finished his first taste of the major leagues on a high note with his 19th homer in just 205 at-bats Sunday. Aquino struck out quite a bit and didn't post a very good on-base percentage (.316) in his 56 games, but his two walks Sunday are an encouraging sign. His .317 ISO will also make him an intriguing draft option for owners next spring. Aquino hit .259 with 47 RBI, 31 runs and seven steals in only 225 plate appearances.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and stolen base in a 5-3 loss against the Brewers on Thursday.

The rookie continues to put up sensational numbers, displaying both power and speed. Aquino has 25 extra-base hits and is 7-for-7 in stolen bases in just 53 games. He doesn't walk a lot and could stand to hit for a higher average, but he owns a .216 ISO, giving him nearly a .900 OPS, and his average rose nine points with three hits Thursday. He is batting .264 with 18 home runs, 46 RBI and 30 runs in 193 at-bats.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Swipes fifth bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base Friday night against the Mets.

Aquino was responsible for Cincinnati's only run of the ballgame, as he produced in the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo blast to left field. The 25-year-old has put together a .264/.317/.592 slash line with 17 homers and 42 RBI over 48 games this season in the big leagues.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Homers, but strikes out twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday in the Reds' 4-2 win over the Cubs.

Aquino's first-inning blast represented most of the damage against Cubs hurler Yu Darvish, who struck out 13 over seven strong frames. The rookie went down swinging in his other two at-bats versus Darvish, bringing his strikeout rate up to 30.8 percent in September. The increased whiffing has unsurprisingly had a negative impact on Aquino's slash line, which rests at .161/.185/.290 through 17 games on the month.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Gets rare day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino is not in the lineup Sunday against the DIamondbacks.

Aquino will sit for just the third time since getting called up at the start of August. He's certainly earned his everyday role, hitting .284/.342/.664 with 15 homers in 37 games. He's cooled off over his last nine contests, though, hitting just .150/.200/.303 over that stretch. Josh VanMeter will start in right field in his absence.

Reds' Aristides Aquino: Launches 14th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aquino went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and another RBI in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Aquino got the scoring started in the first inning with a two-run home run off Robert Dugger, scoring Joey Votto in the process. He later tied the game up in the eighth with an RBI single, scoring Votto once again. With the long ball, the 25-year-old becomes the fastest ever to 14 home runs, passing Rhys Hoskins. He also set a new rookie record with 14 home runs in a single month, surpassing Cody Bellinger, who tallied 13 in June 2017. In terms of Cincinnati's record books, the slugger tied the 14-homer mark in a calendar month set by Greg Vaughn and Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. With three games left in August, there could be a new record holder in town.
