12/11/2014 | Reds' Meetings moves open door for future additions
The prime motivation behind the Reds' moves on the final day of the Winter Meetings was to clear payroll space, and it is not a sign that a rebuilding effort is about to begin. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty felt the trades enabled his club to accomplish its overall offseason plan to contend in 2015.
12/11/2014 | Marlins land Latos as rotation gets more seasoning
The Marlins remained relatively quiet the first couple days at the Winter Meetings, but they went out with a bang, consummating two trades on Thursday that reeled in some needed pitching depth. The biggest impact move was reaching a deal for Mat Latos, a proven top-of-the-rotation right-hander with postseason experience. Miami also acquired righty Andre Rienzo from the White Sox.
12/11/2014 | Reds acquire 4 players in dealing Latos, Simon
The Reds traded All-Star starter Alfredo Simon to the Tigers for right-handed pitcher Jonathon Crawford and infielder Eugenio Suarez.

12/10/2014 | How does Lester's deal affect Reds with Cueto?
The Cubs winning the sweepstakes to sign free-agent pitcher Jon Lester late Tuesday night should have a lasting effect on the Reds -- in more ways than one. Of course, Reds hitters will now have to face Lester five to seven times a season as he becomes the ace of the Chicago rotation. And Lester's reported six-year, $155 million deal also gives the Reds' front office a sense where the market begins for its own ace -- Johnny Cueto -- who can become a free agent after 2015.

A two-time All-Star during a 13-year Major League career, Dmitri Young is patrolling the hallways at MLB's annual Winter Meetings, looking for a job in scouting or player development. He also happens to be nearly unrecognizable, after shedding about 100 pounds from his playing days.
12/9/2014 | Reds facing tough decisions at Meetings
Reds general manager Walt Jocketty is toeing an extremely fine line during the Winter Meetings this week. His club has to move some players to meet payroll, but still wants to contend in 2015. At the same time, Jocketty isn't outright dismissing overtures from teams that are interested in elite pitchers like rotation ace Johnny Cueto and closer Aroldis Chapman.
12/9/2014 | Reds may listen to Aroldis offers; Miami an option?
The Reds appear willing to listen to trade proposals for All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman, a source told MLB.com on Tuesday. If available, Chapman could draw considerable interest on the market. A possible destination could be the Marlins, who are seeking pitching. However, there's been no serious discussion with any specific teams.

Once October came and the Reds had nowhere to go but home for the offseason, there was plenty of time for manager Bryan Price to reflect about his first season on the job.

12/6/2014 | Cueto takes home MLB.com's GIBBY for Bounceback Player
It's hard to believe now, after the 2014 season he had, but there were actually some questions back in the spring about whether Johnny Cueto would be durable enough to get through the year healthy for the Reds. Cincinnati's ace won the Greatness in Baseball Yearly (GIBBY) Award for Bounceback Player of the Year after going 20-9 with 2.25 ERA.
12/6/2014 | Leake curious, but not worrying about trade rumors
Reds pitcher Mike Leake knows he's in a situation that's not unique to his team -- or the starting rotation. Leake, who is arbitration-eligible for the third and final time, is one of four starting pitchers on the club who are a year away from becoming free agents.
12/6/2014 | Bailey spending offseason rehabbing from surgery
Most offseasons, it's hard to locate Reds pitcher Homer Bailey because he's usually way off the grid. Bailey, an avid outdoorsman and bow hunter, often travels to remote outposts of the country for weeks at a time. Not this offseason. Bailey, who had Sept. 5 surgery to repair a torn flexor mass tendon near his elbow, has remained home in La Grange, Texas, and works with a physical therapist at his local hospital for rehabilitation.
12/6/2014 | Frazier's mind is focused on baseball, Redsfest
Redsfest is often a time when both fans and players get back into thinking and talking about baseball for the first time during the offseason. That isn't the case for Reds third baseman Todd Frazier, who found himself watching video of his hitting while at home in New Jersey.
12/5/2014 | Finding a left fielder of utmost importance to Reds
On the Redsfest main stage Friday night, over 80 Reds players from past and present were introduced to an enthusiastic crowd at the Duke Energy Center. But there was one player missing who doesn't even have a name because no one knows just yet who exactly it will be. The Reds still need a starting left fielder. Finding one is general manager Walt Jocketty's top priority during an offseason that's already nearing the halfway point.
12/5/2014 | Cueto takes home top honors in Reds' awards

12/5/2014 | Bruce not concerned with rumors, committed to Reds
Trying to fully rehabilitate his surgically repaired left knee and put the worst season of his Major League career behind him, this was already shaping up to be a different kind of offseason for Reds right fielder Jay Bruce. Then Bruce became the subject of trade rumors over the past few weeks.
12/5/2014 | Votto making progress with rehab from quad injury
As he gathered and mingled with his Reds teammates after the team was introduced at Redsfest on Friday night, it was clear that first baseman Joey Votto wanted to say little about the topic everyone wants to know more about -- his health.
12/4/2014 | Prep shortstop Rodgers leads 2015 Draft class
Ten years after grabbing Justin Upton, the D-backs could follow a similar path in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft. Lake Mary (Fla.) High School shortstop Brendan Rodgers sits atop MLBPipeline.com's initial Draft Top 50 rankings, thanks to his three plus tools (bat, power, arm) complemented by two solid ones (speed, defense).
