Reds' Tejay Antone: Beginning bullpens next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) will start throwing bullpen sessions sometime next week, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

The righty landed on the injured list June 26 with a right forearm strain, but he received a plasma injection in early July and has been recovering since. Barring any setbacks, Antone should progress from bullpens into live sessions before ultimately going on a rehab assignment. With so many steps between him and an activation from the IL, Antone still appears to be on track for an early August return.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Unlikely to return before August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) isn't expected to return before August, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Antone has been out since late June with a forearm strain, the same issue which kept him out for the middle part of that same month. An MRI revealed no structural damage, and he was previously thought to have a chance to return in late July, but he's now slightly behind that timeline.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Could return in late July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection and is expected to return from the injured list near the end of July, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander had an MRI on his forearm come back clean last weekend, and he's now received a PRP injection to aid his recovery. It's unclear when Antone is expected to resume throwing, and when he does it should provide a better idea how realistic a return in late July would be.

Reds' Tejay Antone: MRI comes back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) had an MRI on Saturday that came back showing no structural damage, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Antone is hopeful that he'll return the first day after the All-Star break, but he's shut down from throwing for the moment. The nature of his injury coupled with the extended timetable for his recovery could make Antone a cut candidate in shallower formats or deeper mixed leagues with limited reserve spots, despite the fact that he's arguably been Cincinnati's best reliever this season.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Heading back to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone is heading back to the IL with the same right forearm strain that previously sidelined him, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Antone had only been back for two games this week and wasn't effective in either outing. With Lucas Sims also out, the Reds will be pressed to find good relief work. The most likely closers in their bullpen are Brad Brach, Amir Garrett and Heath Hembree, but they don't have a designated closer by manager David Bell's design.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Making return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds reinstated Antone (forearm) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Antone was sidelined for just over two weeks with what was apparently a mild case of right forearm inflammation. Though he missed out on a spot in the Reds' Opening Day rotation, Antone had proven to be a valuable multi-inning weapon out of the bullpen prior to landing on the IL. Across his 20 appearances spanning 32 frames, Antone has posted a 1.41 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 40:11 K:BB while collecting seven holds and three saves.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Expected back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds are expected to activate Antone (forearm) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Antone threw two bullpen sessions over the weekend without incident, leaving the Reds optimistic that he'll be ready to rejoin the bullpen after getting a day of rest Monday. Once reinstated, Antone should immediately factor into the Reds' late-inning plans after he compiled seven holds and three saves prior to landing on the IL.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Scheduled for another bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) is expected to throw another bullpen Sunday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Antone felt good after his bullpen session Friday, but he'll have at least one more throwing session before he's cleared to return from the injured list. However, the right-hander is optimistic that he could be activated Monday or Tuesday.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Friday and could be activated by Sunday at the earliest, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Antone has been traveling with the Reds during their current road trip, but he won't return from the injured list when he's first eligible Friday. Manager David Bell said that the 27-year-old could return Sunday if his bullpen session goes "extremely well," so it's possible the right-hander could be available for the series finale against the Padres or early next week in Minnesota.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Delayed return likely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (forearm) has been traveling with the Reds on their current road trip and throwing before games, but probably won't be ready to return from the injured list when first eligible on Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Reds manager David Bell suggested that the delay in Antone's return would be measured in terms of days. "I'm still hopeful that he comes back while we're in San Diego," Bell said. "The way his days lined up for bullpens and everything, I don't think it's going to be Friday."

Reds' Tejay Antone: Dealing with forearm inflamation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right forearm inflammation, Mark Sheldon of reports.

News of Antone's placement on the IL was reported earlier Friday, though it wasn't revealed until later in the afternoon that the right-hander is dealing with the forearm issue. The injury doesn't appear to be serious, as manager David Bell said Friday that he is "very confident" Antone will be ready to be activated when first eligible June 18, per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer. With Antone on the shelf for the time being, Heath Hembree is among those that could see increased work in high-leverage situations.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (undisclosed) will be placed on the injured list Friday for what the Reds hope will be a minimum-length stay, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Manager David Bell said that Antone was unavailable Thursday, and while the team still hasn't specified the nature of the injury, it's evidently serious enough to shut him down for at least a brief period. Antone hasn't pitched since Sunday, so the Reds can backdate the transaction by three days, leaving him eligible to return next Friday. His absence will be a big loss for the Reds, as he owns a 1.41 ERA and 0.72 WHIP in 32 innings of relief this season, saving three games.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Unavailable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Bell said that Antone was "not an option" out of the bullpen in Thursday's loss to the Brewers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Bell didn't elaborate on why Antone was unavailable Thursday but said that he would provide an update on the right-hander's status Friday. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Cincinnati's weekend series against the Rockies.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Picks up four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone struck out one batter over 1.1 perfect innings to earn a save over the Cubs on Sunday.

Antone entered the game with two outs and two runners on in the eighth inning but quickly got out of the jam. He then rolled through a perfect ninth to earn his third save of the season. The 27-year-old is currently riding a 12.2-inning scoreless streak and lowered his season ERA to 1.61.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Records second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone allowed two hits and struck out none over one scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 7-6 win over Colorado.

He allowed a leadoff double to Connor Joe and a single to Ryan McMahon, but Garrett Hampson grounded into a double play to end the threat. The save was Antone's second of the season. He's also notched two blown saves, three holds and a win in 13 outings. The 27-year-old has a 2.08 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 21.2 innings in a fairly versatile role.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Implodes in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone was charged with a blown save after giving up four runs on two hits and two walks over 1.1 innings in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Cubs in 10 innings.

After picking up his first career save Friday in the series opener, Antone was summoned with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to protect a one-run lead. He got out of the seventh unscathed and then saw the Reds put up three runs in the top of the eighth, but Antone couldn't hold up to his end of the bargain. He walked two of the first four batters he faced in the bottom of the eighth, then surrendered an RBI single before coughing up a game-tying three-run home run to Ian Happ. The poor outing should do little to diminish what's been an outstanding start to the season for Antone, who still owns excellent ratios (2.93 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 12.3 K/9) across his nine relief appearances.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Notches first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone retired the only batter he faced Friday to record his first save of the season in an 8-6 win over the Cubs.

Carson Fulmer started the ninth inning for the Reds with the club ahead 8-4, but after he put the first two batters aboard, Lucas Sims entered the game. Sims did no better, allowing both inherited runners to score and loading the bases with two outs, forcing manager David Bell to turn to Antone, who needed only three pitches to rack up his first career save by getting David Bote to ground out. The Reds prefer using Antone in longer high-leverage stints a la Josh Hader -- he's gotten more than three outs in five of his eight appearances so far -- but with both Sims and Amir Garrett struggling badly in save situations, the 27-year-old could find himself working the ninth more often.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Picks up first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone (1-0) fired three scoreless innings without giving up a hit, walking two batters and striking out three to earn his first major-league win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Antone entered Monday's game in the eighth and mowed down the Dodgers' hitters without much issue. The 27-year-old has easily been the Reds' best reliever to begin this season with a 0.66 ERA and 20:6 K:BB over 13.2 innings. His fantasy appeal does present some limitations in leagues that don't count holds due to the fact that he's not a starter and isn't first in line for save opportunities. However, things could change down the road with both Amir Garrett and Lucas Sims struggling in high-leverage situations so far this year.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Picks up hold Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone did not give up a hit in Monday's 3-0 win over the Giants, striking out five and walking a batter while firing 3.2 scoreless innings to earn a hold.

Antone entered to begin the sixth after five shutout innings from Wade Miley, and he picked up right where the starter left off. He did walk and hit a batter, but Antone recorded 10 consecutive outs at one point. The 27-year-old did make four starts in 2020 and is a valuable resource out of the bullpen as a guy who can give manager David Bell multiple innings if needed. Antone has gotten off to an incredible start this year, throwing 6.2 scoreless innings and allowing just two hits while sporting an impressive 9:2 K:BB.

Reds' Tejay Antone: Two strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antone threw two shutout innings against the Diamondbacks on Friday, striking out three while allowing one hit.

Antone was in line for the win after relieving Tyler Mahle to begin the fifth inning, but Cam Bedrosian and Lucas Sims both struggled later in the game. There will be similar opportunities for him to steal some wins in relief, and in the future he might get stretched out more -- this was just his second appearance in the regular season, after he lost some time in spring training with nagging injuries.
