Cincinnati Reds Starting Lineup 9/19/18 Reds Lineup

65-88, 6th in NL Central

Confirmed Conf

CIN 0 @ MIL 7

Final

Updated:

Cincinnati should have better offensive numbers than what they show, especially playing half their games in a top five hitters park. The power just simply has not been there this season, and Joey Votto is someone who has taken a step back. While his overall on-base numbers are solid, the power and RBI production has been rather lackluster. Scooter Gennett has somewhat been in that same boat, but a little better production. Gennett and Votto are two of the better hitters for the Reds, but are a bit weaker against left-handed pitching. Eugenio Suarez is the Reds best fantasy player right now, and while in the past has been someone we targeted against left-handers, he has really become an all-around player.

Analysis

There is a big drop off after these three. Jesse Winker had a solid start to the season, but has trailed off, and has lost his leadoff spot to Scott Schebler. The lefty has been more power than contact over recent years. Schebler has plenty of pop, while Winker is a safer on-base player. There is very little hope for Billy Hamilton to be a fantasy player, especially in the daily world. His SB upside is nothing to chase these days. His spot is now in the bottom of the order, and with only three PA a game, it is hard to get excited. Tucker Barnhart and Curt Casali are the catching options for Cincinnati, but Barnhart is the everyday guy. He has been hitting second in the order most nights, and is always a standout value. Jose Peraza has been a mediocre fantasy play, and as many times as the Reds move him up in the lineup, the production stays the same. It is only a matter of time before the Reds farm system can bring some pop into this lineup, and some excitement as a matter of fact.
