The Cincinnati Reds have shown everyone in Major League Baseball this year that they are done with rebuilding and are ready to contend again in the National League.

They have made several trades and moved some popular players.

Recently, the team bolstered its bullpen, a team strength in 2018, by bringing back LHP specialist Zach Duke.

Duke had played for the Reds in 2013 and did quite well in limited duty, 0.84 ERA in 10 2/3 innings pitched.

The free-agent acquisition was signed to a one-year, $2 million contract.

To make room for Duke, RHP Jose Lopez  was designated for assignment. That means the Reds have a 10 days to either waive, trade or send Lopez to the minors.

The 36-year-old Duke is a 14-year MLB veteran having also played for Pittsburgh, Arizona, Washington, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Chicago White Sox, Minnesota and Seattle.

The 2009 All-Star pitcher with the Pirates, has a won-loss record of 66-90, 4.30 ERA and 836 strikeouts.

Commissioner Manfred issues statement as MLB mourns loss of its first Black manager and Hall of Fame outfielder, Frank Robinson at age 83

Major League Baseball is sad to confirm the passing of Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, the first African-American field manager in the history of the game and longtime MLB executive, who was 83. He passed away this morning at his home in California, surrounded by family and friends.

Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. issued the following statement today:

“Frank Robinson’s résumé in our game is without parallel, a trailblazer in every sense, whose impact spanned generations. He was one of the greatest players in the history of our game, but that was just the beginning of a multifaceted baseball career. Known for his fierce competitive will, Frank made history as the first MVP of both the National and American Leagues, earned the 1966 AL Triple Crown and World Series MVP honors, and was a centerpiece of two World Championship Baltimore Orioles’ teams.

“With the Cleveland Indians in 1975, Frank turned Jackie Robinson’s hopes into a reality when he became the first African-American manager in baseball history. He represented four franchises as a manager, most recently when Baseball returned to Washington, DC with the Nationals in 2005. Since 2000, Frank held a variety of positions with the Commissioner’s Office, overseeing on-field discipline and other areas of baseball operations before transitioning to a senior role in baseball development and youth-focused initiatives. Most recently, he served as a Special Advisor to me as well as Honorary American League President. In 2005, Frank was a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, for ‘setting a lasting example of character in athletics.’

“We are deeply saddened by this loss of our friend, colleague and legend, who worked in our game for more than 60 years. On behalf of Major League Baseball, I send my deepest condolences to Frank’s wife Barbara, daughter Nichelle, their entire family and the countless fans who admired this great figure of our National Pastime.”

The Robinson family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, contributions in Frank’s memory can be made to the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee or the National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, D.C.

Frank was born in Beaumont, Texas on August 31, 1935. He was the youngest of 10 children.

He attended McClymonds High school where his basketball teammate was the legendary center Bill Russell. On the baseball team, his teammates included Vada Pinson and Curt Flood.

On February 7, 2019, Robinson died of bone cancer in Los Angeles at the age of 83.

Fields is one of seven newcomers who enrolled for the spring semester. He’s joined by Zach Harrison, Garrett Wilson, Ronnie Hickman, Ryan Jacoby, Noah Potter and Marcus Crowley.

 

In all, the recruiting class of Buckeyes includes four offensive linemen, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, three defensive linemen, two linebackers, two safeties and one athlete.
