5/3/2016 | Reds starter Lamb solid in emergency debut
Injuries have decimated the Reds' rotation already in 2016 and the latest one to Jon Moscot forced the Reds to cut short John Lamb's rehab assignment and activate him from the disabled list. He provided a decent six-inning start Tuesday for a no-decision while Cincinnati still came up short in a 3-1 loss.
5/3/2016 | Reds relievers set dubious runs-allowed record
On Tuesday in the top of the eighth inning, the Giants scored two runs against Cincinnati reliever Caleb Cotham to snap a 1-1 tie. That made it 21 consecutive team games with at least one run allowed by the Reds bullpen to set a single-season record.

5/3/2016 | Reds, Giants may get key pieces back in finale
A pair of infielders, one from each team, could return to their respective lineups Wednesday as the Giants and Reds complete their three-game series. Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart, whose playing status is day to day with tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee, is poised to return to action. San Francisco second baseman Joe Panik, recovering from a groin injury, also might be back on the field.
5/3/2016 | Barnhart ready to be Reds' everyday catcher
Knowing that catcher Devin Mesoraco was coming off major hip surgery last year, it was paramount for the Reds to have backup Tucker Barnhart ready to step up in case of a setback this season. That setback came Monday, but it wasn't to Mesoraco's hip. He could potentially be out for the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

5/3/2016 | Cueto's return to Cincy brings mixed emotions
The first bursts of noise that Johnny Cueto heard Monday night came from the fans. Thanking him for the charisma he displayed and the mound presence he maintained during his 7 1/2 seasons with the Reds, the Great American Ball Park patrons greeted Cueto with warm ovations as he began warming up for the first inning and when he batted one inning later. The next round of sound wasn't so pleasant for Cueto.
5/3/2016 | Finnegan pushes to 6th despite sore hamstring
It was initially curious during a 9-6 Reds loss to the Giants on Monday that manager Bryan Price lifted Brandon Finnegan after six innings and 90 pitches. Cincinnati had a 6-3 lead when Price went to the struggling bullpen and reliever JC Ramirez. It turns out there was a very good reason. Finnegan had developed a sore hamstring in the third inning on the left leg he needs to push off from when delivering a pitch.
