  • CIN Starting Pitcher #41
    Abbott surrendered eight hits, and this would have been worse if the Guardians hadn’t kept running into outs. It’s truly seemed like Abbott has been running on fumes of late. Perhaps he could pitch some Sunday if the Reds remain in the race. Still, we’re not sure he has anything in the tank for October if his team advances. He’s completed five innings just once in his last seven starts, and his ERA stands at 3.87 ERA after being under 3.00 most of the way.
  • CIN Second Baseman #6
    He had a hand in all three Reds runs tonight, as he knocked in the other. India had been just 7-for-48 since coming off the IL on Sept. 10, though he did have 11 walks in 13 games.
  • CIN Center Fielder #22
    Bader underwent an MRI earlier this month that revealed a sports hernia and a strained abductor and opted for season-ending surgery. He should be fully recovered heading into free agency.
  • FA Shortstop #28
    Newman hit right at his career numbers this season, coming in at .253/.311/.364 in 253 PA. His defensive numbers, on the other hand, were quite a bit worse than usual. He’ll be fortunate to get a guaranteed contract this winter.
  • CIN Relief Pitcher #43
    With the Reds holding on to a slim chance of making the playoffs, they have been relying more on their closer. The amount of work has reared its ugly head recently, posting two back-to-back multi-run performances against the Twins and Pirates. He is now at a career-high 67 1/3 innings but now has 38 saves to show for it.
  • CIN Shortstop #44
    De La Cruz’s late summer swoon has dropped him to seventh in the batting order but he showed on Tuesday why so many are excited about his future. The 21-year-old connected with two homers on the night. The first was a solo shot in the fourth, and the second was a 467-foot two-run bomb to right center field, giving the Reds a four-run lead in the top of the ninth inning. He now has 13 homers to go along with his 33 steals and will likely go high in drafts next season due to his power-speed combination.
  • CIN Starting Pitcher #21
    It was a wild game for both starting pitchers as Lucas Giolito and Hunter Greene surrendered three long balls. Greene started the home run derby when he allowed a three-run homer to Bo Naylor in the second inning. He followed that up with back-to-back jacks in the third, which gave Cleveland a two-run lead. Greene’s fastball was sitting about one MPH slower than it was in his last start, but he still managed to get nine swinging strikes on 70 pitches, posting a 30 percent CSW rate. On the season, Greene has a 4.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 147/47 K/BB ratio over 107 innings.
  • CIN Shortstop #9
    Not good. McLain suffered a Grade 2 right oblique strain during Sunday’s minor league rehab contest for Triple-A Louisville and won’t make it back to Cincinnati this season. The 24-year-old infielder, who will obviously be ready in plenty of time for spring training, closes out an impressive rookie campaign with a .290/.357/.507 triple-slash line with 65 runs scored, 16 homers, 50 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 403 plate appearances over 89 games.
  • CIN Shortstop #9
    Welp. It’s within the realm of possibility McLain winds up being activated, and opens Tuesday’s contest on the bench, but the expectation here was always that the talented rookie would returns to Cincinnati’s lineup for this one. The 24-year-old infielder, who holds an .864 OPS with 16 homers and 14 steals in 89 games this season, has been out since late August recovering from a right oblique strain. There should be some clarity on his status at some point shortly.
  • CIN Shortstop #28
    Newman has been on the shelf since mid-August with a left oblique strain and there simply isn’t a spot on the Reds’ roster at the moment with so many of their prospects ascending to the big leagues over the past few months. The 30-year-old veteran will get a head start on free agency and likely be able to latch on somewhere else for the 2024 campaign.
