Reds' Sonny Gray: Dealt tough loss
Gray (5-6) took the loss Wednesday against the Cubs after giving up two runs on two hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked none.
Gray served up a pair of solo homers but otherwise kept the Cubs off the basepaths, though the Reds were unable to provide him much offensive support. The right-hander has a 1.64 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 35:5 K:BB in his last four starts, and he'll look to continue that trend Monday at Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Nick Senzel: Downplays injury
Senzel (hamstring) thinks he'll be ready to go for Thursday's series opener against the Cardinals, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Senzel exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs with an apparent hamstring injury, though the youngster didn't seem overly concerned about the issue. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's series opener.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Kyle Farmer: Possibly dealing with concussion
Farmer will be re-evaluated for a concussion, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
This helps explain why Farmer was removed from Wednesday's lineup. With Curt Casali (knee) and Tucker Barnhart (oblique) also both on the mend, look for Juan Graterol to serve as Cincinnati's primary backstop for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Curt Casali: Likely headed to IL
Casali (knee) is expected to land on the 10-day injured list, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Casali exited Monday's series opener against the Cubs with right knee soreness, and while the backstop downplayed the severity of the issue, it turns out it will force him to miss at least 10 days. With Tucker Barnhart (oblique) and Kyle Farmer (head) also dealing with injuries, Juan Graterol should handle the majority of catching duties for the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Derek Dietrich: Removed after getting plunked
Dietrich was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cubs after getting hit by a pitch on the knee, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Dietrich was originally able to stay in the game after getting checked out by trainers, though he was replaced by a pinch runner (Phillip Ervin) after the next out. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, the outfielder believes his injury is nothing more than a day-to-day issue. Look for his status for Thursday's series opener against the Cardinals to clear up after he's further evaluated.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Rehabbing in Cincinnati
Barnhart (oblique) is currently rehabbing in Cincinnati, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Farmer is situated on the bench Wednesday against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Farmer was originally tabbed to start before being removed from the lineup in favor of Juan Graterol, who had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday. In 122 plate appearances this season, Farmer is slashing .237/.279/.430 with six home runs and four stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Lands on paternity list
Iglesias was placed on the paternity list Wednesday.

Reds' Juan Graterol: Promoted to majors
Graterol had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday. He is starting at catcher and hitting eighth against the Cubs, according to Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Graterol will provide the Reds with catching depth while Curt Casali (knee) and Tucker Barnhart (oblique) both nurse injuries. Raisel Iglesias was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Curt Casali: Remains out Wednesday

Reds' Jesse Winker: Returns to bench
Winker is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.
Winker missed some time earlier in the week due to side tightness, but he returned to the starting lineup Tuesday, going 0-for-3 with a walk. He'll head back to the bench Wednesday as the Reds look to ease him back into action. Derek Dietrich is starting in left field and hitting fifth in his place.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Eugenio Suarez: Goes yard again
Suarez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Cubs.
His first-inning shot was part of a three-run frame for the Reds, but the team's offense went cold the rest of the night. Suarez has now gone yard in back-to-back games and three of five since the All-Star break, giving him 23 homers and 58 RBI through 92 contests to go with a .246/.324/.500 slash line.... See More ...

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Serves up walkoff blast
Iglesias (2-8) took the loss Tuesday as the Reds were downed 4-3 by the Cubs in 10 innings, striking out two but giving up a walkoff solo home run to Kyle Schwarber in an inning of relief.
The right-hander grooved a 96 mph fastball right down the pipe with one out in the bottom of the 10th, and Schwarber drove it just over the wall in left-center. It was the first homer and the first run Iglesias has allowed in six July appearances, but it's not a new issue for him -- he's posted a 1.52 HR/9 this year after managing a 1.50 mark in 2018....

Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Homer-prone in no-decision
DeSclafani didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Cubs, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out four.
While the right-hander was stingy with the hits, two of the Cubs' knocks left the yard -- including a solo shot by Kris Bryant in the sixth inning that tied the score at 3-3 and chased DeSclafani from the game one out shy of his third straight quality start. He'll take a 4.29 ERA and 94:27 K:BB through 92.1 innings into his next outing Sunday, at home against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
