Reds' Price might take Kevin Gregg out of eighth-inning role
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) After a rough outing for Reds pitcher Kevin Gregg on Monday, manager Bryan Price was asked if Gregg would be the guy in the eighth inning going forward.
“He may be. He may not be,” Price replied. “It just depends on who I have healthy and who is down there. He’s a guy who is experienced as a closer, a setup man and a starter. He’s a guy who has been a lot tighter situations than that over the course of his career. As I’ve told you, the bullpen will be ever evolving. These guys will cut out their roles based on how they perform,” per mlblogs.com.
Price acknowldeged that some adjustments will have to be made in the bullpen.
“Once the eighth inning becomes a situational inning, it becomes a challenge,” Price said. “We went into that game anticipating him pitching the eighth inning. It didn’t go as well as we had anticipated. The eighth inning isn’t really a matchup inning. We really had hoped that it would be a clean inning and it wasn’t, so I had to make some adjustments there.”
Price added that pitchers Jumbo Diaz and Tony Cingrani could be in the late-inning mix.
Reds pitcher Kevin Gregg struggles in debut Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Reds pitcher Kevin Gregg didn't produce the debut he was hoping for Monday against the Pirates. Gregg came on in relief on starter Johnny Cueto and surrendered a two-run home run to center fielder Andrew McCutchen.
"If you go back and look at the location of the pitch, you'll see it wasn't located that bad. They were obviously jumping on my stuff early," Gregg said to MLB.com.
Manager Bryan Price was hoping for better from the non-roster invitee to spring training.
"I'm always surprised because you don't anticipate guys going in there and scuffling, but it's part of the game," Price said. "We're trying to define our bullpen [roles] as best as possible. The only way to do that is for these guys to go out and pitch."
Chris Dominguez earns spot on Opening Day roster
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) Reds infielder Chris Dominguez was informed Wednesday that he has made the team's 25-man roster for Opening Day, MLB.com reports.
"Certainly the offense stood out with the power and the extra-base hits," manager Bryan Price said. "His defense in the last six weeks has really greatly improved, particularly in the infield. And he brings energy into everything he does, from the drills outside to a pinch-hit at-bat to coming in the last three innings of a spring training game."
Dominguez hit .316/.322/.596 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 57 spring at-bats. The versatile bench player saw at least 15 appearances each at first base, third base and shortstop as well as in left field and right field with Triple-A Fresno last season.
Dominguez joins outfielder Brennan Boesch and pitchers Jason Marquis and Kevin Gregg as nonroster invitees to earn spots on the Opening Day roster.
Reds' Kevin Gregg hoping to win a spot in the bullpen
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Reds pitcher Kevin Gregg is hoping to win a spot in the team's bullpen, according to MLB.com.
Gregg may be 36-years-old, but understands he still needs to prove himself. "I don't mind coming in and earning a spot," he said. "I'm coming off elbow surgery. At this point in my career, it's something I need to do."
Gregg had bone chips removed from his elbow in August, but was able to hit 92 mph in a showcase in February. He believes his velocity has improved since then.
Manager Bryan Price had good things to say about Gregg thus far. "He looks great. He looks durable," Price said. "He's got hand speed. He's crisp with his location. I've been extremely impressed with Kevin to this point."
The 36-year-old tossed just nine innings in the majors last year.
