|Mike Leake shines in win vs. Diamondbacks Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/29/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake dominated in a win Tuesday, giving up just five hits in 7 2/3 scoreless innings and striking out eight in his team's 3-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.
Leake (8-9) also managed to drive in a run with a second-inning single while recording his first win and quality start in four outings. He owns a 3.53 ERA and 114:29 K:BB ratio in 147 2/3 innings. Leake is on track to face the Marlins Sunday.
|Mike Leake winless over his last five starts |

(7/23/14) Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake lost a second straight start and ran his winless streak to five starts during a 5-1 loss Wednesday at Milwaukee. He was charged with four runs on 11 hits and no walks, while striking out four in six innings.
Leake (7-9) was locked in a scoreless battle with Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse until Cincinnati went up 1-0 in the top of the fifth. Unfortunately, Leake couldn't hold the lead, as Milwaukee took a 2-1 advantage on an RBI triple from Carlos Gomez and an RBI single from Ryan Braun in the bottom of the fifth.
The Brewers added on two more runs after Mark Reynolds connected for a two-run homer off Leake in the sixth inning. It was the 15th home run Leake has allowed in 21 starts this season.
The right-handed hurler is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Leake is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in one start against Arizona this season.
|Mike Leake allows four runs Friday |

(7/18/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake allowed four runs Friday against the Yankees.
The Yankees chipped away at Leake multiple times throughout the game. Brian McCann knocked in an RBI double in the first, while Carlos Beltran singled in a run in the third inning. With the game tied at two, Leake gave up a two-run shot to Jacoby Ellsbury in the fifth. Leake would throw two more scoreless innings before being taken out of the game.
Leake allowed four runs on eight hits over seven innings. He struck out five and walked two. The loss drops Leake to 7-8 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the Brewers.
|Reds set post-break rotation plans |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/16/14) The Reds will kick off the second half by starting Mike Leake against the Yankees in New York Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Leake will be pitching on regular rest after making his last start Saturday. He'll be followed in the rotation by Alfredo Simon and Johnny Cueto before the team heads to Milwaukee, where Mat Latos and Homer Bailey are scheduled to start Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
|Mike Leake can't factor into decision in final start before ASG |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake was not at his best but escaped with a no-decision Saturday night at home against the Pirates. The right-hander pitched six innings and yielded four runs on nine hits, with three walks and two strikeouts. Of his 103 pitches, 64 were strikes.
Leake heads into the break with a 3.54 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 19 starts (127 innings). The Reds have yet to announce their post-break pitching plans, so his next start remains uncertain.
|Four years into his big-league career, Mike Leake is still trying to figure out what he wants to be. In 2012, everyone was targeting him as a sleeper on Draft Day because of the strides he made in 2011, and he burned them, ranking near the bottom in ERA and WHIP among qualifying pitchers. In 2013, no one gave him a second thought, and he was among the hottest pickups off the waiver wire, going 7-3 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over the first three months. But those last three months in which he compiled a 4.36 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 15 starts ... they brought it all full circle. Maybe Leake is exactly what he's shown himself to be: a pitcher whose control is so good at times that you can't take him out of your lineup but whose stuff is so marginal that he has nothing to fall back on, leading to some of the inconsistencies we've seen. He's still only 26, so he could potentially take another step forward, but as deep as starting pitcher has become, you don't gain much by taking a glass-half-full approach to him. Target him late, if at all, in mixed leagues.
