Radio, TV reports say Reds, Ludwick agree to 2-year deal pending physical

 

There are reports on radio, television and the internet reporting that the Cincinnati Reds and outfielder Ryan Ludwick have agreed to a two-year, $15-million deal pending completion of a physical.

Ludwick signed a bargain-basement one-year, $2-million contract with Cincinnati in 2012 and emerged as the club’s regular left fielder and one of its most potent hitters to go along with Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier.

After struggling with the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, the 34-year-old Ludwick, had a bounce-back season in 2012 where he hit .275 with 26 home runs and 80 RBIs to help Cincinnati win the National League Central Division title.

He has played 10 Major League seasons with the Rangers, Indians, Cardinals, Padres, Pirates and Reds and is a .263 career hitter with 143 homers, 530 runs batted in and 850 base hits.

Slumping Bruce getting a couple days off by Dusty Baker

 

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker saw his rightfielder Jay Bruce have a tough night on Thursday at the plate against the Chicago Cubs and decided a change was needed.

Bruce hit .213 in July and has not done any better by batting .200 in August. He’s hitless in his last 12 at-bats with seven strikeouts. And that means Baker will give him a rest for the next two days.

Xavier Paul started in rightfield on Friday with Justin Germano pitching. With Travis Wood, a lefty throwing on Saturday, Chris Heisey should get the start.

Even with Bruce in a slump and the Reds star player, Joey Votto out of the lineup since July 16 with a knee injury, the team is still controlling the National League’s Central Division by 2.5 over Pittsburgh and 4 games over St. Louis.

Reds proving they can win without Votto; beat Brewers, 6-2

 

The Cincinnati Reds are 4-2 since Joey Votto had to go on the disabled list earlier in the week with a torn knee cartilage.

Each game, a different set of players are leading the team to victory.

In Saturday’s 6-2 win over the slumping, defending NL Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Ludwick, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce led the offense. Ludwick and Phillips hit home runs and Bruce had two more hits.

The Reds are 6-2 against the Brewers this season.

They basically put the game away early in the first inning by scoring four runs off losing pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who drops to 8-7 on the season.

The oldest member of the Reds starting pitchers, Bronson Arroyo at 35 years old, rebounded from Monday’s three-inning stint vs. Arizona, a 5-3 loss, by pitching solidly in six innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He’s 5-6 in 2012.

Ludwick’s first-inning homer into the upper deck in left field, made it 74 straight games in Great American Ball Park with a home run. It’s the longest such streak since Coors Field produced 80 games in a row in 2002-03, according to STATS LLC.

Reds promote reliever Redmond to take Votto’s roster spot; adds bullpen depth

 

With first baseman Joey Votto being placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds decided to add a 13th pitcher when right-hander Todd Redmond was recalled from Triple-A Louisville.

Redmond is wearing uniform No. 58.

It’s been a whirlwind for the 27-year-old Redmond, who was traded from the Atlanta Braves to the Reds on Saturday for shortstop Paul Janish. The Braves’ Triple-A affiliate at Gwinnett was playing the Reds’ Triple-A Louisville club at the time.

Redmond went from Gwinnett to Columbus, Ohio to play Louisville’s next game and was supposed to start on Tuesday for the Bats.

After getting the callup, Redmond had to make the 105-mile drive from Columbus to Cincinnati.

Redmond, who has never pitched in the big leagues, but was once called up by Atlanta and not used, was 6-6 with a 3.58 ERA in 18 starts for Gwinnett this season. His stay with the Reds will be a short one. The team needs another bat and is looking to acquire one.
