Hamilton uses speed but Seattle rallies past the Reds, 6-5

New Cincinnati Reds lead-off hitter Billy Hamilton has been the talk of the spring. Can he takeover for the Shin-Soo Choo, who left through free agency for the Texas Rangers in the off-season. Or will he have trouble hitting major league pitching?

Hamilton had a bunt single and stole another base in a 6-5 Reds loss to the Seattle Mariners in Glendale, Arizona.

The rookie outfielder started the Reds four-run third inning rally with a bunt single.

The other Reds star of the game was Alfredo Simon. Usually a bullpen specialist for Cincinnati, Simon has been pressed into a starting pitcher this spring while Mat Latos recovers from a surgical procedure. Simon pitched three innings.

The Cincinnati Reds have decided to keep their fireballer closer Aroldis Chapman in that role for the 2013 season.

There had been speculation with Chapman starting this spring, that he was going to be moved into the rotation.

Chapman has said all along that he would prefer to close games.

The Reds have a solid rotation in Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey and Mike Leake. That quintet started every game but one during the 2012 season, the best in Major League Baseball.

Cueto will start the Opening Day Game on April 1 against the Los Angeles Angels at Great American Ball Park.

Reds sign Mike Leake to one-year deal; will compete with Chapman for rotation

The Cincinnati Reds have agreed to a one-year contract for $3.06 million with young right-hander Mike Leake.

The 25-year-old California native will be competing in the upcoming Spring Training camp for a spot in the starting rotation.

Leake will make an additional $25,000 if he reaches 180 innings pitched.

The Arizona State product made $507,500 in 2012, when he went 8-9 with a 4.58 ERA in 30 starts, a career-high.

Since his MLB debut in April of 2010, Leake has a record of 28-22, with a 4.23 ERA and 325 strikeouts.

Leake asked for $3.5 million and the Reds offered $2.650,000 in arbitration.

Reds players still offering arbitration include Mat Latos, Homer Bailey and Shin-Soo Choo.

There are rumors out of Cincinnati that the Reds have had substantial contract talks about retaining reliever Jonathan Broxton with a multiyear deal.

If the Reds can sign him, they’ll be able to move Aroldis Chapman to the starting rotation with Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo and Homer Bailey.

The Reds acquired Broxton from the Kansas City Royals in the July trading deadline. He was 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA and saved four games in six opportunities for the NL Central Division Championship team.

Broxton is also talking to other teams to find a good fit, but he is giving the Reds the first opportunity to sign him.
