Commissioner Manfred to Consider Rose Reinstatement

(NEW YORK) -- Pete Rose has applied for reinstatement to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.

Commissioner Manfred stated that he will consider the appeal "on its merits."

Rose accepted voluntary banishment from baseball in August of 1989 after a Sports Illustrated story proved that he had gambled on games while he was the manager of the Cincinnati Reds.

Rose has previously petitioned for reinstatement under previous commissioners Fay Vincent and Bud Selig, but was never considered.

From 1963 to 1986, Rose totaled 4,256 hits -- making him the all-time leader in the category.

Reinstatement into the game would be the first step towards being nominated for the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is no sure thing that he would be nominated once he was reinstated, but it would give Rose his first chance as the Hall of Fame adopted rules in 1991 stating that no player on the banishment list could be considered for enshrinement.

Reds’ Catcher Devin Mesoraco Dealing with a Concussion

Reds’ Catcher Devin Mesoraco Dealing with a Concussion

iStock/Thinkstock(GOODYEAR, Ariz.) -- With less than a month to go before the start of the regular season, Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion.

Mesoraco suffered the injury when a foul ball hit him on the mask this past Saturday during a spring training game with the Kansas City Royals.

"It is tough for me to sit around, but that's what you have to do," Mesoraco said. "Right now I want to get back to work and I can't do it. I did 20 minutes on the bike today. Tomorrow, I'll walk on the treadmill."

This is Mesoraco's third concussion as a professional baseball player, the other two coming in 2010 and 2012.

"This was different than the first two," Mesoraco said. "I had more headaches the last time. With this one everything is just hazy."

Mesoraco broke out in 2014 for the Reds. He batted .273 with 25 home runs and 80 RBIs.

Pete Rose Holding Out Hope He’ll Be Reinstated

Pete Rose Holding Out Hope He’ll Be Reinstated

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Former Cincinnati Reds player Pete Rose plans on reaching out to new MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred about being reinstated into baseball.

Rose was hoping former commissioner Bud Selig would lift his lifetime ban prior to stepping down, but that never happened.

"I wish I could tell that I know what he'll do, but I've never met him. I've never seen him,'' Rose told USA Today Sports on Wednesday.  "But I'd love to talk to him.''

Rose played for the Reds his entire 24-year career and finished with 4,256 hits and a .303 batting average.

"I'll always have hope. That's all I've got," Rose continued. "I just want to be on that writers' ballot. Let the writers decide. If they want me in, I'm in. If they don't feel I should be in, I can live with it.

"Once they lift my ban, I should be just like anyone else. If I've never been on the ballot, my clock should start at zero. That will give them 10 years to decide, if they need it.''

Reds Agree to 4-Year Contract with C Devin Mesoraco

Reds Agree to 4-Year Contract with C Devin Mesoraco

Thinkstock(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Reds and catcher Devin Mesoraco agreed to a four-year contract extension, the club announced late on Monday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Reds selected Mesoraco with the 15th overall pick in the 2007 MLB amateur draft. Last season, the 26-year-old batted .273 with 25 home runs and 80 RBIs in 440 at-bats. He was named to his first All-Star team in 2014.

"This is another example of rewarding a player we drafted and developed," Cardinals president of baseball operations and general manager Walt Jocketty said in a statement. "We are pleased to be able to sign him for the next four years and expect him to be an integral part of the team."

Mesoraco was set for arbitration this off-season, but his new contract will keep him in Cincinnati through the 2018 season.

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Major League Baseball(SAINT LOUIS) -- The St. Louis Cardinals clinched a playoff spot for the fourth straight season, but did so despite losing to the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Sunday.

St. Louis (87-69) reached the postseason thanks to Milwaukee's 1-0 loss to Pittsburgh earlier.

Jay Bruce hit a pair of home runs, two of the four belted by the Reds (72-84), helping Cincinnati snap a six-game losing streak. Starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (15-10) gave up just two run over six innings for the win. Todd Frazier's solo shot in the top of the sixth gave the Reds the lead for good, one that was ballooned by a Bruce RBI Single later that inning.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals must now fight for the National League Central division crown while battling a flu bug that is going throughout the clubhouse. Both Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter sat out for the second consecutive game due to flu-like symptoms.

"There are a lot of guys that are unavailable," said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. "Almost as many unavailable as available."

Matheny also added that more than 10 players are sick, many of whom may be held back from the team flight to Chicago on Monday. The Cardinals will play the Cubs in a three-game series and currently hold a 2 1/2 game lead over the Pirates in the division.

Reds Shut Down Homer Bailey for the Rest of the Season

Reds Shut Down Homer Bailey for the Rest of the Season

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Image(CINCINNATI) -- Following a disappointing season coming off signing a mega-contract extension, the Cincinnati Reds have decided to shut down starting pitcher Homer Bailey for the rest of the season with an elbow injury.

Bailey had been on the shelf since being put on the DL back on August 16 with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Despite the injury, the team was hoping to get him back this month as the Reds fight for a playoff spot in the National League.

According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds are mulling whether or not surgery could be the best option for the 28-year-old Bailey.

Now in his eighth season with the Reds, the team signed Bailey during the offseason to a six-year extension worth $105 million.

In 23 starts this season, Bailey went 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA along with a 1.23 WHIP. Despite the lucrative contract, Bailey has a career record of 58-50 with a 4.17 ERA.

Brewers Acquire Reds Reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Reds

Brewers Acquire Reds Reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Reds

Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As Major League Baseball enters the final month of the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers have helped solidify their bullpen by acquiring reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Cincinnati Reds.

No longer the player he once was during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Broxton has re-emerged has a dominant reliever this season with the Reds.

"Part of the thinking was his contract. We had to recognize we're taking on this contract for next year, too,'' Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said. "You try to get somebody who can help. There's a lot of big money guys today, whether they're relievers or [position] players, whatever. We've done a pretty good job with bullpens without having to spend a lot of money.''

In 51 games this season, the 30-year-old Broxton is 4-2 with a 1.86 ERA and a WHIP of 1.01.

More importantly for the Brewers, Broxton is eligible to pitch for the team during the postseason, as he was acquired prior to the September 1st deadline.

He is expected to serve as the set-up man for closer Francisco Rodriguez.

Reds Activate Second Baseman Brandon Phillips Off the DL

Reds Activate Second Baseman Brandon Phillips Off the DL

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- In desperate need of a shot in the arm, the struggling Cincinnati Reds have activated second-baseman Brandon Phillips off the disabled list.

Phillips had been out of action since July 11 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.

"I would not say he's 100 percent like brand-new and that may not be until spring training of next year," manager Bryan Price said. "But he's definitely good to play."

The Reds could certainly use Phillips back in the lineup. They've been slipping in the standings in recent weeks, losing eight out of their last 10 games and trailing the first-place Milwaukee Brewers by nine games in the NL Central.

Now in his eighth season with the Reds, Phillips is hitting .269 with seven home runs and 40 RBIs in 87 games this season.  He made his return to the team Monday.

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DENVER) -- On a day where Todd Helton had his number 17 retired, the first player to receive the honor in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies swept a doubleheader against Cincinnati in dramatic fashion. Colorado (49-75) took game one by a 10-9 final before winning the nightcap 10-5.

The Rockies Trailed 9-5 heading into the bottom of the ninth in the first contest but rallied to score five runs in the inning. Aroldis Chapman walked four consecutive batters to start the inning before J.J. Hoover replaced him. Wilin Rosario's sacrifice fly made it a 9-7 game with one out and two on. Following a Charlie Blackmon fly out, Drew Stubbs took a 1-0 pitch and hammered it to deep center for a walk-off, three-run home run against his former team. Rex Brothers (4-5) got the win while Hoover (1-9) was saddled with the loss.

Colorado's dramatics carried over into the second game where they again came from behind. The Reds (61-63) led 5-2 at the seventh inning stretch, but the Rockies scored three runs to knot things up. They took the lead in the eighth on Corey Dickerson's two-run double and added to it with a two-base hit from Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer's double was his fourth hit of the game and completed his second ever cycle.

The outfielder tripled in the first, homered in the fifth, and singled in the seventh before the eighth inning triple. Cuddyer became the seventh Rockies player ever to hit for the cycle, and the first since Carlos Gonzalez in 2010 against the Chicago Cubs. His first cycle came as a member of the Minnesota Twins against Milwaukee in 2009.

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(DENVER) -- Kris Negron singled home Ramon Santiago in the top of the ninth inning to give Cincinnati a 3-2 lead over Colorado, and make Johnny Cueto the first 15-game winner in the Major Leagues. Cueto (15-6) pitched a full eighth innings and is now 7-0 since his last loss back on July 2.

It did not start off well for Cueto or the Reds (61-61) as Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first to give the Rockies (47-75) an early lead. Cincinnati countered with runs in the third and fourth, taking the lead on a Santiago RBI single in the top of the fourth. That would last until Corey Dickerson doubled in the sixth to plate Justin Morneau and tie the game at 2-2.

Cueto continued to keep his team in the ballgame using a devastating combination of his cutter and four-seam fastball. The righty allowed just six hits in the outing with six strikeouts, helping the Reds snap a three-game losing streak. 

After Negron gave Cincinnati the lead in the top of the ninth, Aroldis Chapman picked up his 26th save in 28 tries.
