Cincinnati Reds Starting Lineup 2/15/19 Reds Lineup

PIT 6 @ CIN 5

Final

Updated:

The Reds lineup all of a sudden looks somewhat decent with the recent trade of the Dodgers coming over. Cincinnati didn’t give up much in what was an expected salary dump for Los Angeles. The Reds now have some strong right-handed power options in their outfield with Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig. They both get a massive bump in a hitters park. Joey Votto and Scooter Gennett offer a lot of power from the left-hand side which gives them a well balanced lineup. Eugenio Suarez is a power righty bat playing third base, and there is a lot of excitement around this group. Jose Peraza and Jesse Winker are good on-base guys to put around the power bats. Peraza is the stolen base threat now, and a bunch are needed with Billy Hamilton not in Cincinnati anymore. Against both handedness of pitchers they are covered for what should be an improved offense in 2019.

2019 Cincinnati Reds Pitching Analysis

Things are starting to improve in Cincinnati, and that even means the rotation. Luis Castillo found himself in the second half, and they added Alex Wood and Tanner Roark to be middle of the rotation arms. While these names might not be upper tier pitchers, they are a massive improvement from Homer Bailey. As mentioned with Castillo, he pitched 170 innings last season, and had a 3.69 xFIP. There were two different halves for him, as he allowed a .341 wOBA in the first, compared to a .268 wOBA in the second. Castillo was hyped up heading into the season, and his second half was an indicator of the future, which is a bright one. The Reds trade with Los Angeles brought over Alex Wood. The lefty will get a downgrade moving to Cincinnati, but there is a lot to like about the groundball arm here. He should eat a decent amount of innings, and has been great at limiting damage. Wood should have a productive year as the number two in Cincinnati. He is projected for a 3.34 ERA, and is also an accurate arm who doesn’t give up a lot of baserunners.

The Reds signed Tanner Roark, who is an innings eater, and average right-handed arm. He is nothing special, but nothing special is a decent add for the Reds. Roark came over from Washington, where he had over a four ERA. Look for him to be around the low fours for an ERA, and put together some stretches both good and bad. Things start to get rocky after this, as Sal Romano and Anthony DeSclafani will likely stay in the rotation. There is a chance that Tyler Mahle or Michael Lorenzen mix in, but at the moment they should be the guys filling out the rotation. You are going to get some random good starts out of these names, but for the most part they are below average arms who do not offer up a lot of upside. They are fill-in options in the meantime, as Cincinnati looks to the future. They have Hunter Greene in the waiting, but 2020 is likely going to be his ETA. Mahle is a top prospect for them, but we haven’t seen much yet.
