Reds recall pitchers Contreras, Hand; option OF Boesch to Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/2015) The Reds have recalled pitchers Carlos Contreras and Donovan Hand from Triple-A Louisville, and optioned outfielder Brennan Boesch to Triple-A, the team announced on Tuesday. 

Contreras appeared in three games with the Reds earlier this season, allowing one earned run in 3 1/3 innings. With Triple-A, he owns a 4.66 ERA in 19 1/3 innings.

Hand hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since 2013. He has been pitching in Triple-A after signing a minor-league deal with the Reds in January. In 15 games, he owns a 4.50 ERA over 44 innings pitched.

Boesch has struggled this season in a part-time role with the Reds. In 56 at-bats, he's batting just .125 with one extra-base hit. 


Reds CF Billy Hamilton sits, Brennan Boesch starts Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/9/2015) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's tilt with the Phillies. Hamilton had started each of the last 13 games for the Reds, slashing .261/.292/.261 in 46 at-bats, with eight stolen bases over that stretch. He has hit safely in all but three of those 13 games.

Manager Bryan Price says Hamilton is bothered by hand and wrist discomfort, which could explain why he is being held out of the lineup. 

Brennan Boesch will spell Hamilton in center field and bat eighth on Tuesday. Primarily a bench player this season, Boesch hasn't made a start in the outfield since May 24.


Reds OF Brennan Boesch dealing with back soreness


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2015) Despite dealing with back soreness, Reds outfielder Brennan Boesch will be available to play in Monday's game against the Phillies, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Boesch has not played since June 2 and he has not started a game since May 24. He will likely start one of the next two games when the team faces a right-handed pitcher.


Billy Hamilton out of Reds' lineup on Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is not in the team's lineup for Sunday's game. 

Hamilton suffered a shoulder and wrist injury while sliding, trying to steal a base on Saturday. 

Brennan Boesch replaces Hamilton in center, starting there for the fourth time this season. 


Reds' Jay Bruce gets an off day vs. Madison Bumgarner, Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Reds outfielder Jay Bruce was held out of the starting lineup against left-hander Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Friday, per the team's official website. Kris Negron will bat eighth and play in right field in Bruce's absence.

"I've got to find my days for the other guys," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "I'm hoping to get [Brennan] Boesch in this series and give him a start. I have to pick my times for these guys. Sometimes if it's a tougher match-up, I will do that. It's nothing to read into anything other than a day off [for Bruce] against a tough lefty."

Bruce has shown some power, but is off to a slow start at the plate this season. He is hitting .162 (19 for 117) with a double, two triples, five homers and 16 RBI in 34 games. He is a .206 hitter this season against left-handed pitching.

Cincinnati is an underdog (+125) at home against the Giants, per VegasInsider.com.


Reds' Hamilton, Byrd, Mesoraco out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Reds outfielders Billy Hamilton and Marlon Byrd are joining catcher Devin Mesoraco (hip) on the bench for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Hamilton is getting a break after making 11 straight starts out of the leadoff spot, while Byrd has seen 11 straight starts in left field. It's just a regular day off for both players, who will get a two-day break due to the team's scheduled off-day Monday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Both Hamilton and Byrd are available if needed Sunday. With the pair out, Skip Schumaker will lead off and play left field, while Brennan Boesch will bat seventh and play center field.

Mesoraco hasn't appeared in the starting lineup since the first week of the season, as he's continued to rehab from a left hip impingement while remaining on the active roster.

The Reds are road favorites (-142) in Atlanta with Johnny Cueto on the mound.


Reds' Devin Mesoraco (hip), Jay Bruce out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco and right fielder Jay Bruce are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Mesoraco has seen just two plate appearances as a pinch-hitter in the last two weeks as he continues to deal with left hip impingement. Brayan Pena gets the call behind the plate and will bat eighth.

"Unless we get into a situation where we feel we need a player that can do more than solely pinch-hit, he'll continue to do his rehab in preparation to get back behind the plate," manager Bryan Price said Sunday, per MLB.com. "It will still be a few more days before we kick the tires on Devin getting down into the crouch and doing some catching work. At this point in time, he can still contribute as an offensive player. In the big picture, he replaced Chris Dominguez, and Chris was getting some limited opportunities to play as a pinch-hitter, but it can be a very valuable role."

Bruce has started each of the team's first 17 games in right field but will get his first break of the season Sunday. With Bruce on the bench, first baseman Joey Votto is the only player on the team to have started every gamethis season. Brennan Boesch will man right field and bat fifth in the team's matchup against righty Jake Arrieta.

The Reds are home underdogs (+105) Sunday.


Chris Dominguez earns spot on Opening Day roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) 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' Brennan Boesch wrapping up strong spring


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Outfielder Brennan Boesch has been one of the surprises for the Reds in spring training. 

Boesch is hitting .372 with three home runs and 10 RBI. He's also earned praise for his baserunning and defense in center field. 

It appears that Boesch has earned a spot on the Reds' roster, but he'll likely start the season on the bench in a reserve role, per the Cincinnati Enquirer's John Fay.


Reds OF Brennan Boesch likely to make 25-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Reds outfielder Brennan Boesch is expected to make the team's initial 25-man roster after outfielder Jason Bourgeois suffered a fractured shoulder this weekend, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Manager Bryan Price indicated he's been pleased with Boesch's work in center, setting the nonroster invitee to serve as a reserve outfielder for the team. He has excelled at the plate this spring, going 9 for 21 with two home runs and five RBI. Boesch saw limited action with the Angels in 2014, hitting .187/.203/.293 in 75 at-bats.


Reds' Price: Both Bourgeois, Boesch 'could help us'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Wednesday that outfielders Jason Bourgeios and Brennan Boesch are playing well and one could stick on the roster despite the team already likely to carry two other players capable of backing up the team's starters in the outfield, MLB.com reports.

"Along with the starters, you have two guys there that are capable of playing the outfield very well and then you have to look between Jason Bourgeois and Brennan Boesch, that group," Price said. "There's a good chance at least one of those guys would be on the club as well at this point. They're both playing well and both could help us. I don't want to use the word 'surplus,' but we could have a rather large group of guys that, even if it's not their primary position, they're capable of playing the outfield very well."

Bourgeois is 5 for 15 with one home run in six spring games, while Boesch is 7 of 14 with two home runs and five RBI in six games.


Reds' Brennan Boesch to see time at first base this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Friday that outfielder Brennan Boesch would see time at all three outfield spots as well as at first base as he competes for a roster spot this spring, MLB.com reports.

"We already know he's a terrific player," Price said of Boesch, who has never played first base professionally. "He kind of got banged up and lost his way a little bit, but I think he feels -- and we feel -- that he's back on top of his game, and maybe his best days are ahead of him."

Boesch said he doesn't see the battle for a reserve outfield role as a "competition."

"I only care about the competition against the pitcher, and that's really as basic as I keep it," Boesch said. "You aren't competing against other players. We're all on the same side here. We're all wearing Red jerseys. Let the chips fall where they may."

Boesch struggled in limited time with the Angels in 2014 but hit .332/.381/.636 with 25 home runs, 85 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 374 at-bats with Triple-A Salt Lake.
