Lehr reassigned to minors


(3/14/2011) Reds pitcher Justin Lehr was reassigned to minor-league camp on Monday. Lehr did not make any appearances for the team this spring as he continues recover from Tommy John surgery. He is not expected to pitch until May.

Lehr invited despite health


(2/16/2011) MLB.com reports Reds SP Justin Lehr was invited to camp as a non-roster player though he has no shot at winning a job at the moment and likely won't pitch until May as he continues to heal coming after Tommy John surgery last May. "After being at this for nine months, it was a big deal [to be invited]," Lehr said. "I was like, 'Yes!' I'll be way ahead as camp starts, but I will fall behind because I have to do everything more. Obviously, it's nice to be invited when you know you won't be competing for a job." Lehr is likely to pitch for Triple-A Louisville when he is healthy enough to play.

Lehr visits team on Saturday


(5/29/2010) According to MLB.com, Reds SP Justin Lehr visited the team's clubhouse on Saturday, fresh off Tommy John surgery. Lehr came to Cincinnati on Thursday and was examined by medical director Dr. Timothy Kremcheck. He underwent surgery the following day. "I was somewhat relieved," Lehr said. "I just got by last year. I kept making adjustments, and my arm just got worse. I had recurring pain. I never knew when the last bullet would be." Lehr was 1-3 with a 6.67 ERA for Triple-A Louisville before he went on the disabled list.

Lehr to have Tommy John surgery


(5/27/2010) The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Reds SP Justin Lehr is going to need Tommy John surgery. “He’s either going to have it now or some time this year,” a Reds official said.

Reds send six down to the farm


(4/2/2010) The Reds sent six players down to the minors on Friday. Pitchers Jared Burton, Justin Lehr and Matt Maloney, infielders Chris Burke and Drew Sutton, and utility player Wilkin Castillo were sent to Triple-A Louisville.

Lehr not going down without a fight


(3/22/2010) Reds SP Justin Lehr allowed one run on five hits in four innings Sunday against the Cubs, recording one strikeout. With a 3.48 ERA this spring, the 32-year-old has kept himself in the running for the fifth starter's spot, part of a crowded competition that includes 22-year-old Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman. "Lehr was only supposed to go three innings, but his pitch count was so low we had him go four," manager Dusty Baker said.

Lehr again has to work late innings


(3/18/2010) Reds SP Justin Lehr, who's competing for the final spot in the starting rotation, pitched the final two innings Wednesday against the Brewers, allowing one hit and one walk. The Reds have yet to give him an actual start.

Lehr doesn't enter game until late


(3/10/2010) Reds SP Justin Lehr, who made his first starts in the majors last year at age 31, isn't looking like a major contender for the final spot in the rotation. He pitched 1 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, but not until late in the game. Even against the lesser competition, he still allowed two hits.

Lehr struggles in spring debut


(3/6/2010) Reds starter Mike Lincoln is trying to make his case to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation this spring. He didn't get his point across in his debut against the Indians on Friday. Lincoln struggled as he gave up four earned runs and seven hits in 1 1/3 innings. The Tribe connected with some solid shots against him, including a leadoff HR by Asdrubal Cabrera. Another contender for the No. 5 spot, Matt Maloney came on and fared much better. He threw 1 2/3 scoreless frames with one walk and two strikeouts. A third candidate, Justin Lehr, gave up two earned runs and four hits -- including a homer -- over his two innings of work.

Reds' No. 5 spot wide open

Lehr quality, but takes the loss


(10/2/2009) Reds SP Justin Lehr, who had allowed four earned runs or more in each of his previous six starts, lost in a rare quality start against the Pirates on Friday. He allowed three runs on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts in six innings.

Lehr to go Friday, Maloney pushed back


(9/30/2009) RHP Justin Lehr will start for Cincinnati on Friday against Pittsburgh instead of LHP Matt Maloney, who needs more time to get completely over a blister on his left middle finger.

Lehr gets fifth 2009 win


(9/26/2009) Reds SP Justin Lehr picked up his fifth win of the season on Saturday as the Reds beat the Astros 10-4. Lehr lasted five innings, allowing four earned runs on six hits. He struck out four and walked two, allowing two homers. Lehr had been sitting out with a groin injury.

Lehr out until weekend series


(9/21/2009) From The Sports Xchange notes: LHP Matt Maloney and RHP Justin Lehr won't pitch in the Pittsburgh series this week, but both will pitch in Houston over the weekend. Maloney is battling a blister on his middle finger. Lehr has struggled in his past two starts, and manager Dusty Baker thinks the extra rest should help him.

Lehr allows five solo homers


(9/17/2009) Jeff Keppinger, a former Red, had two of Houston's five solo shots -- all off Reds starter Justin Lehr -- but that wasn't enough to keep the Astros from their fourth consecutive loss. "That was an interesting game to read between the lines," said Cincinnati's Jonny Gomes, who led off the second with his 20th home run. "It's tough to win a game with solo home runs." Lehr tied a club record by allowing the five home runs. He gave up 11 hits and five runs with one walk and six strikeouts in five innings of work.

Lehr allows five earned in loss


(9/11/2009) Reds SP Justin Lehr had a rough outing in his first start since Sept. 1, lasting 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cubs. He allowed five earned runs in his first start since getting skipped in the rotation due to a groin injury. Those five earned came on five hits and three walks, striking out one.

Lehr targets weekend; Wells goes Thurs.


(9/9/2009) MLB.com reports that Justin Lehr will not start on Thursday against the Rockies. That start belongs to Kip Wells. Lehr, who missed his last turn with a strained right groin, will throw off a mound on Wednesday with the possibility that he could start in the upcoming weekend series in Chicago.

Lehr handles Pirates on Tuesday


(9/1/2009) Reds SP Justin Lehr improved to 4-1 on the season as he defeated the Pirates on Tuesday night. Lehr didn’t need his best stuff as he was blessed with a lot of run support in the game. Lehr gave up four runs on six hits over six innings. He walked five and struck out two. His ERA is at 4.43.

Lehr a winner with 7 2/3 innings


(10:55 pm ET) With two out and none on in the fifth Thursday at Milwaukee, Reds SP Justin Lehr set his sights low. He was just hoping to stay at the plate long enough to chase counterpart Dave Bush from the game. "If I can eat up a few more pitches then he's done," Lehr said. "Obviously, it turned out a lot better than that." Lehr overcame his own rocky start Thursday to pitch into the eighth inning and win for a third time, allowing five runs on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings. He also issued three walks and recorded seven strikeouts.

Pirates tee off on Lehr

Lehr comes back to Earth a bit


(8/16/2009) Reds SP Justin Lehr came back down to Earth slightly on Sunday against the Washington Nationals. Lehr, who has made four starts this season and in his major league career, had pitched a complete game shutout on Aug. 5 against the Cubs and followed that by allowing only one run over six innings – with 11 hits allowed – at St. Louis. Sunday was a different story, however, as he gave up three runs on six hits over six frames. He wasn’t awful, but he wasn’t as effective as he’s been. Lehr did not walk a batter and struck out two. His ERA is 2.42.
