They will have to make a decision soon on Mesoraco as this is his last year under contract @ $13.125m. He's a FA next year and I can't see them resigning him for anything near that.
    They also have a catching prospect in Tyler Stephenson who they drafted in the first round in 2015. I think he is a little more raw than Chris Okey since Stephenson came straight from high school. Mlb pipeline has Stephenson ranked #10 and Okey#20 in the Reds Top 30 list.

    Stephenson has had some bad injury luck so far in his career. Hopefully he can get back on track this year.

    Yep.

    When healthy he's been fairly productive.

    Sounds like DeSclafani is in midseason form. He's got an oblique injury with no timetable set for his return. Finnegan left with a forearm injury as well.

    Don't think Finnegan's injury is serious.

    Hopefully not. But those forearm cramps/spasms/tightness issues are scary. They often come up before serious elbow issues.

    More pitching issues. Is it the trainers? the pitchers themselves? What is going on.

    Sounds like a biceps strain. He'll be shut down for a couple of days then be reevaluated.

    Cincinnati Reds lefty Brandon Finnegan has biceps strain

    Pitchers get hurt. Most the time it's just bad luck. The Reds were right in the middle of the pack last year in injuries for pitchers. It just so happened it was a lot of starters that were very costly.

    Still waiting for “Bailey” to return to “Bailey.”

    Should we be concerned that the guys slated to be bench players are doing way better than the starting 8 at this point?

    No except for Peraza and Hamilton. Peraza better do well early. If not I see Suarez moving to ss and senzel coming up.
    Who thinks Scooter even approaches his numbers of last year?
