Reds talking new contract with Broxton as closer; move would allow Chapman to start

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.

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 release veteran Jeff Francis from minor-league contract

 

When the Cincinnati Reds signed left-hander Jeff Francis to a minor-league contract back on January 25, it was to make sure there was a veteran arm needed if the starting staff needed help in case of injuries or lack of production. The starting pitchers have done their job all season and that’s why the Reds are leading the NL Central Division.

Francis on the other had has done a good job for a Louisville Bats team which has not played well all season. He has a 3-6 record in 12 starts with an ERA of 3.72, 65 strikeouts, 18 walks in 77.1 innings of pitching.

One day after throwing a complete-game shutout for Triple-A Louisville, veteran left-hander  Francis was released by the Reds on Monday, June 4 after choosing to exercise a June 1 opt-out clause in his Minor League contract.

Francis spent last season pitching for the Kansas City Royals, but his best years were in six seasons with the  Colorado Rockies, where he went 55-50 with three double-digit-win seasons.

Reds, Marshall negotiating contract extension

When the Cincinnati Reds acquired left-handed reliever Sean Marshall from the Chicago Cubs on December 23, fans and media felt they gave up too much talent just to rent a player for one year.

After all, the Reds gave up left-handed starter Travis Wood, outfielder Dave Sappelt and infielder Ronald Torreyes.

In the midst of Spring Training, the Reds and Marshall are trying to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Both Marshall and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have confirmed the two sides are trying to come up with agreeable terms.

The 29-year-old Marshall, one of the game’s best situational leftys, is signed through 2012 for $3.1 million and can become a free agent in the off-season.

In 2011, against NL Central Division rivals Milwaukee and St. Louis, Marshall recorded an ERA of 0.00 in 15 appearances covering 16.1 innings while with the Cubs.

The 6’7 reliever has a career ERA at Great American Ball Park of 2.42 in 26 innings pitched covering 26 innings.
