by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Reds pitcher Mike Leake turned in a quality start Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out eight in his team's 7-5 win over the Pirates.

Leake (2-1) also did some damage at the plate, hitting a double and a two-run home run as part of a 2-for-3 night. He turned in his best strikeout rate of the season in the start after getting just three Ks in each of his first two starts.

Leake owns a 2.95 ERA and 14:5 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He's due to take on the the Pirates again Monday, this time in Pittsburgh.

Lucas Duda singlehandedly sinks Mike Leake


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake didn't put forth his best effort in his first start of the season Friday, a 4-3 loss to the Mets.

Leake only had trouble with one player on the Mets, however that was enough to sink him as all four runs came off the bat of Lucas Duda and his two home runs. Leake was tagged for four runs on five hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings, while striking out three.

Leake has allowed 20-plus home runs in three straight seasons, so he isn't a stranger to the longball. He will try to keep the ball in the park in his next outing, set for Wednesday in St. Louis.

"They were aggressive, so it made it tough to get into a count with them," Leake said. "The one [Adam Dunn] hit was a good pitch. He's a hitter that likes to jump on that first pitch. I'm not worried about that stuff on the first outing."

Leake was sidelined over the first week of March with a minor abdomen strain but should be good to go moving forward. He went 14-7 with a 3.37 ERA and 122:48 K:BB ratio in 192 1/3 innings last season.

Abdominal issue could sideline Mike Leake 5-7 days


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Reds pitcher Mike Leake was scratched from his scheduled Sunday start early in the day Saturday, and manager Bryan Price gave a bit more information on the abdominal strain in an interview with MLB.com.

"He did something we didn't know about, about a month before Spring Training, just doing his workout," Price said. "It's a little bit of a strain. It's not causing any problem with his bullpens, with his lifting or any of his throwing stuff. He was out playing long toss before his last bullpen and he felt it a little bit.

The injury is not currently considered an issue, but skipping him in one start may be enough to get him healthy within a week. Leake set career highs in wins (14) and innings (192 1/3) while posting a 3.37 ERA in 2013.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"Maturity, learning, changing a little here and there -- throwing more changeups and changing my, mixing up more instead of getting generic with certain stuff," Leake said of his success last season, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. "That's where I'd get in trouble when I didn't know what to throw. Last year I had options, a little more options."

Reds manager Bryan Price feels Leake has even more room to improve.

"You could really look at 2013 for Leaker and say, 'Boy, he's arrived. He's a guy now. We should expect this,'" Price said. "My point was, let's forget the expectations, let's work and continue to strive for greatness and be as good as you can be. There's no limitations on his ability to be a guy we feel as good about as anybody in our rotation every fifth day when he gets the ball."

Mike Leake comes undone in seventh


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2013) Reds starter Mike Leake took the mound Monday night in St. Louis. Until the seventh inning, it looked like he was going to walk away a winner.

Mike Leake winless in last three starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2013) Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake bounced back from one of his worst starts of the season Sunday against the Padres, but he didn't get enough offensive support during a no-decision. Leake, who allowed seven runs in five innings in his last start, held San Diego to two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks, while striking out four in seven innings.

Leake fell behind early as San Diego scored twice in the second inning. Leake wouldn't allow another run the rest of the game, but he left as the losing pitcher of record as Cincinnati trailed 2-0. Leake then took a no-decision when Cincinnati tied the game in the eighth inning.

The right-hander is winless in his last three starts. He will look to end that streak when he's back on the hill Friday against the Brewers. Leake beat Milwaukee July 10, allowing two runs in 8 1/3 innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Leake was then able to toss four scoreless innings and allowed Cincinnati to get within two before St. Louis ran away with the game with a five-run sixth inning. The seven runs allowed were a season-high for Leake, who entered Sunday 3-0 in his last four starts.

The Reds are off twice this week, so as of now Leake isn't scheduled to pitch again until next Sunday against the Padres.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
