The National League Central Division race is a dogfight between the Reds and Cardinals.

But let’s not forget about the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates reached 15 wins in the month of April for the first time since 1992 after their 9-0 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Pittsburgh rookie pitcher Jeff Locke allowed three hits in seven innings. His performance allowed the pirates to move into first place in the National League Central with a record of 15-10.

Locke, now 3-1, has pitched 13 scoreless innings in his last two starts.

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.

Reds manager Dusty Baker suffered a mini-stroke last week in Chicago; will return for St. Louis series

It has been discovered that Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker suffered a mini-stroke last Friday while the team was in Chicago. That ailment was on top of the irregular heartbeat that put him into the hospital two days earlier to get checked out.

The 63-year-old former outfielder returned to Cincinnati on Sunday after being released from a Chicago hospital. He spoke to the team on Tuesday night before their 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier is running the team in Baker’s absence.

Baker is under the care of a neurologist and a pair of cardiologists.

The timetable for Baker’s return to the bench is for the final three games of the regular season against the Cardinals in St. Louis on October 1-3.

The Reds have already wrapped up the National League Central Division championship and are readying themselves for the upcoming playoffs.

THE CINCINNATI REDS ISSUED A STATEMENT FROM DUSTY BAKER:

While in Chicago on Wednesday, Reds manager Dusty Baker was admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, commonly referred to as an irregular heartbeat. As he was being discharged on Friday, he suffered a mini-stroke and immediately was treated by the hospital’s stroke team, which minimized the effects of the stroke.

Dusty returned to Cincinnati on Sunday, and his condition has improved dramatically. His Cincinnati neurologist, Dr. Joseph Broderick, and cardiologists, Dr. Dean Kereiakes and Dr. Daniel Beyerbach, expect Dusty to make a full recovery and return to the dugout, possibly as soon as the season’s final series next week in St. Louis.

Dusty said, “While at Wrigley Field I was blessed to have our trainer, Paul Lessard, have the good sense to call in Cubs team physician Dr. Stephen Adams, who examined me in the clubhouse, immediately determined how serious by condition was and personally rushed me to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Dr. Broderick and Dr. Kereiakes are going to make sure I’m ready to handle the duties of managing before I return full time. My family and I are very grateful for the support we’ve received the past few days from Mr. Castellini and our ownership group, Walt, our friends, the baseball family and especially Reds fans. I’m feeling much better, and it’s great being back here in Cincinnati. Chris Speier and my staff are doing a terrific job, and I look forward to getting back to the dugout.”

Brewers release struggling veteran pitcher Wolf

 

The Milwaukee Brewers, long out of the National League Central Division pennant race, is continuing to clean house and cut payroll.

The lastest on the way out the door is veteran left-hander Randy Wolf.

The crafty Wolf, who can still throw the ball in the 90′s on occasion, had a record of 3-10 with an ERA of 5.69 in 24 starts in 2012. He had lost his last four decisions.

The 36-year-old Wolf, has a MLB record of 130 wins, 117 losses, 4.19 ERA, 1,759 strikeouts.

Wolf has played with Philadelphia, the Dodgers twice, San Diego and Houston.

He was an All-Star in 2003.

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.
