Fantasy Impact: Gray underwent arthroscopic surgery in late-September to remove bone chips and appears to be healthy to start spring training. The 30-year-old was fantastic in 2019, posting a 2.87 ERA with 205 strikeouts in 175 1/3 innings. He's being taken as a top-30 starter in early drafts.

Fantasy Impact: He didn't make any throws, however. Suarez recently had surgery to remove loose cartilage in his shoulder. It remains unlikely that he's ready by Opening Day but this shouldn't be too long of an extended absence.

Fantasy Impact: Akiyama, a 31-year-old outfielder from Japan, played in 143 games for the Seibu Lions last year. He hit .303 with a .392 OBP, 20 homers, 112 runs scored, and 12 steals in 2019. Known for his on-base ability, Akiyama could slide into the top of the Reds' lineup this season.

Utilityman Jose Peraza was non-tendered by the Cincinnati Reds ahead of Monday's deadline, according to reports. He will now become a free agent. (Source: Mark Feinsand on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After hitting .288 with 14 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 632 at-bats in 2018, Peraza hit just .239 with six home runs and seven stolen bases across 376 at-bats in 2019. Still, he will be just 26 years old and can play multiple positions, so he should find a home on an MLB roster somewhere this offseason.

Infielder Freddy Galvis will have his 2020 option picked up by the Cincinnati Reds, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Galvis had a career-high 23 home runs in 2019 while batting .260 and playing excellent defense, making it an easy decision to pick up his option despite a crowded roster. It's still possible that Galvis is traded, but picking up his option in October is a no-brainer.

Alex Blandino went 1-for-2 with his first career homer in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Blandino went deep in the eighth inning for the first big fly of his young career. He'll finish 2019 with a .250 batting average and three RBI in 36 at-bats.

Brian O'Grady went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: O'Grady blasted his second career homer in the fifth inning. He struggled in limited time this season, batting .190 with a .292 OBP in 28 games played.

Category: Game Recaps


Aristides Aquino went 1-for-2 with two walks and a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Aquino will finish the season on a high note, blasting his 19th homer in the second inning. Aquino took the league by storm, and will be a player Reds fans should be excited about moving forward. He will end the year with a .259 batting average and 47 RBI in 56 games played.

Tyler Mahle (3-12) earned the win Sunday against the Pirates, tossing five scoreless innings while allowing three hits and striking out five.

Fantasy Impact: Mahle will end the season on a positive note, earning his third win of the year while dominating through five scoreless frames. He finishes with a 5.14 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 129.2 innings.

Tucker Barnhart went 1-for-5 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Barnhart started the scoring with a solo shot off James Marvel in the second inning. On the season, Barnhart is batting .232 with 11 homers and 40 RBI in 114 games played.

Raisel Iglesias pitched a clean ninth inning Saturday against the Pirates, issuing no walks and striking out none.

Fantasy Impact: Iglesias needed just six pitches to retire the side in the ninth, with the game tied up at 2-2. Iglesias has 34 saves on the season, to go along with a 4.16 ERA, and a 3-12 record.

Lucas Sims allowed two runs on two hits and one walk across two innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact: This was a traditional bullpen game for the Reds, with Sims leading the way. He stumbled a bit, allowing a series of hits in the second inning that led to two runs. On the season, Sims has posted a 4.60 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 24 appearances and four starts.

Phillip Ervin went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI single in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Ervin gave the Reds a 4-0 lead in the fifth with his two-RBI double. Ervin is batting .273 with seven homers and 23 RBI in a bench role for the Reds this season.

Anthony DeSclafani allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits with one walk and five strikeouts across five innings in a no-decision against the Pirates Friday.

Fantasy Impact: DeSclafani was in line for the win after entering the game after Michael Lorenzen's two innings of relief. DeSclafani ends 2019 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 167 strikeouts in 166.2 innings.

Luis Castillo (15-8) took the loss Thursday against the Brewers, allowing five runs on five hits and four walks across five innings. He struck out eight.

Fantasy Impact: Castillo ends his breakout 2019 on a less-than-impressive note, struggling to find the zone and allowing five runs in as many innings. Castillo struggled with walks for a portion of the season, but seemed to correct that issue over time. He demonstrated elite strikeout potential, and a devastating changeup. He finishes the year with a 3.40 ERA and 226 strikeouts in 190.2 innings pitched. He'll enter 2020 as the Reds' ace, and an elite fantasy pitcher.

Trevor Bauer (2-5) took the loss Sunday against the Mets, allowing five runs on six hits and no walks across seven innings. He struck out eight.

Fantasy Impact: Bauer was less than sharp Sunday, as he allowed two homers and was touched up for four runs in the first inning. He now owns a 4.48 ERA on the season, and has 253 strikeouts in 213 innings. His last start of the season should come Saturday at Pittsburgh.

Category: Game Recaps


Kevin Gausman (3-9) took the loss Monday against the Cubs, allowing three runs on three hits no walks while striking out two in two innings.

Fantasy Impact: Gausman was not expected to work deep into the game Monday, but after allowing a three-run home run, Dave Bell gave him a quick hook. Gausman will likely return to a bullpen role, where he's posted a 4.02 ERA in 11 appearances with the Reds.

Josh VanMeter went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, a walk, and another run scored Friday against Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: VanMeter went deep off Mike Leake in the fourth inning, which gave the Reds a lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He now has seven homers this season, and is slashing .247/.336/.424 across 84 games.

Category: Game Recaps


Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Friday against Arizona.

Fantasy Impact: Votto blasted the homer in the third inning off Mike Leake. Votto continues to slog through a disappointing season in which he's slashing .268/.359/.424 with 75 runs scored and 46 RBI.
