Reds' Tejay Antone: Returns to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone has made his last two appearances out of the Cincinnati bullpen, working 3.1 scoreless no-hit frames and striking out three while issuing two walks.

Antone made three starts for the Reds between Aug. 29 and Sept. 12, but the rookie has seemingly transitioned back to a relief role with Cincinnati set to get its rotation back to full strength Tuesday, when Sonny Gray (back) is in line to start in his return from the 10-day injured list. The righty has proven to be a dominant multi-inning weapon out of the bullpen this season, holding opposing hitters to a lowly .060/.175/.140 slash line while striking out 21 of the 57 hitters he's faced in relief.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (0-2) gave up two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three over three innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Antone got through three innings fine, but he was charged with both of his two runs in the fourth. The Reds only scored once in the game, so Antone took his second loss in nine appearances (four starts). The right-hander has a solid 2.86 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36:14 K:BB across 28.1 innings this year. If Antone gets another start, it would likely be against the White Sox next weekend.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone will start Saturday's game against the Cardinals, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The 26-year-old delivered six innings of one-run ball during his previous start Sunday, and he'll remain in the rotation for at least one more turn. Antone has a 2.49 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB through 25.1 innings this season.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Strikes out six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone allowed one run on five hits and two walks across five innings during Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Pirates. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

It marked the strongest outing of the season for Antone, who has both started and pitched out of the bullpen across eight appearances. His lone blemish was a two-out RBI single by Bryan Reynolds in the third. The right-hander was in line to get the first win of his career, but Raisel Iglesias blew the save in the ninth inning. It's unclear if Antone will get another start or if he'll return to a relief role going forward.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone will start Sunday against the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Manager David Bell will take advantage of Monday's off day and give Sonny Gray and the rest of his starters a couple extra days before their next starts, so Antone will make a start for the second weekend in a row.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Whiffs five in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone pitched four innings in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, allowing three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

Antone made his second start of the season in the nightcap and was able to get through four frames on 66 pitches (39 strikes). He allowed only three hits, but two of those left the park to account for all three runs scored against him. Antone has been functioning as a long reliever, so he'll likely go back to that role for his next appearance. He has a 2.66 ERA and 27:9 K:BB over 20.1 innings this season.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Thriving since callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone tossed 2.1 no-hit innings of relief Saturday in the Reds' 3-0 loss to the Cardinals. He walked one and struck out three in the 30-pitch appearance.

Shortly after Antone made his first career start Aug. 5, the Reds optioned him to the alternate site and added him back to the roster a few days later. While he hasn't had the opportunity to make any further starts since his callup, Antone has dazzled in his three appearances as a long reliever. He's worked at least two frames in all of those appearances, giving up one run and striking out 12 over seven innings in total.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Back with big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was recalled from the Reds' alternate training site Sunday.

The 25-year-old was sent down after making a spot start Thursday, but he'll rejoin the team with Mike Moustakas (quadriceps) heading to the injured list. Antone has appeared in two games this season and has allowed two runs on three hits with a 9:5 K:BB over 8.2 innings. He should work out of the bullpen this time around for the Reds.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Sent down after spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds optioned Antone to their alternate training site Thursday.

Antone initially made his MLB debut as a reliever after he was called up from the Reds' alternate camp July 25, but he picked up a spot start Wednesday against the Indians with Cincinnati temporarily in need of a sixth starter. Though he took the loss in the outing, Antone did well to limit Cleveland to one run on two hits and four walks while striking out four. He should rank near the top of the list for a callup in the event the Reds require another starter at any point this season.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Takes loss in first career start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (0-1) allowed one run on two hits and four walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings in a loss to Cleveland on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old showcased a good breaking ball in his first career MLB start and finished with 13 swinging strikes on 82 total pitches. Antone debuted out of the bullpen last week, allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out five over 4.1 innings against the Cubs. While Antone does not project for another start in the immediate future, he will almost certainly get another chance to start before the end of the season.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Set for spot start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone will start Wednesday's game against the Indians, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds needed to adjust their rotation coming off the postponement and subsequent doubleheader over the weekend in Detroit, so Antone will step up for the spot start in Cleveland. The 26-year-old made his major-league debut July 27 against the Cubs and had a strong showing, allowing one run on one hit and a walk while striking out five over 4.1 innings.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Strong major-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was strong in relief in his major-league debut against the Cubs on Monday night, allowing one run on a hit (a homer) and a walk over 4.1 innings, striking out five.

Antone even got the PitchingNinja treatment on his first strikeout, a 97 mph two-seamer. More importantly, he helped save the bullpen and earned the trust of manager of David Bell for the future.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was recalled by the Reds on Saturday.

Antone didn't make the Reds' initial 30-man roster but will join the club since Tucker Barnhart (paternity) and Matt Davidson (illness) are set to miss time. The right-hander hasn't appeared in the majors yet, and if he would make his debut during his stint in the bullpen, it'd likely be in a low-leverage situation.

Reds' Tejay Antone: In 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.

A member of the 40-man roster, Antone logged a 4.65 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 71.2 innings at Triple-A last year. He has yet to make his big-league debut, and if he does reach the majors this season, it would likely be as a low-leverage reliever.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Increased velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was reaching 97 mph in spring training games this year before he got sent to the Reds' minor-league camp, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Antone was working in the 88-92 mph range last year. He worked on trying to improve his velocity over the winter at APEC, a company located in Forth Worth, Texas, but didn't really see the improved results until getting into game action in spring training.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Among Reds first cuts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was among the Reds' first 11 spring training cuts Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Others sent to the Reds' minor-league camp include David Carpenter, Ryan Hendrix, Nick Lodolo, Tony Santillan, Josh Smith, Chris Okey, Jonathan India, Blake Trahan, Stuart Fairchild and Boog Powell.

None of these cuts qualify as a surprise, though there was a smidgen of a chance that Antone or Smith could have won the last bullpen spot. But this is one of the annual landmarks of spring training -- players getting sent down that don't have much of a chance of making the Opening Day roster. Antone could still be in line for a midseason callup after getting promoted to the 40-man roster in November.
