Games are underway in Goodyear for the Cincinnati Reds and we’ve got plenty to talk about this week on The Unnamed Reds Podcast. We forgot a topic last week, so we doubled up on it this week. Here’s the the conversation broke down for Brian and myself on the podcast this week:

  • Looking at the second and third base positions for 2018 with the Reds.
  • Amir Garrett found some extra velocity on his fastball and it looked real good in his first outing. Does that change the outlook on the rotation?
  • Thoughts on the signings of left handed reliever Oliver Perez and outfielder Ben Revere.

    With the signings of Pennington and Revere, we may see Ervin and Blandino playing every day in Louisville to start the year. I kind of like that idea, because it gives them an opportunity to get out to a hot start that they likely couldn’t on the big league club in a reserve role. If they are playing well, perhaps that puts some pressure on the Reds to give them a shot if CF or 2B has injury or performance issues as opposed to just going with Pennington or Revere in the interim.

    I hope to see Garrett pitch in the first 4 innings next time out. He dominated his first appearance, but it was also at the end of the game against minor leaguers.

    I think the Reds have enough bullpen depth on the 40 man to carry a LOOGY if they have a spot they can cycle guys through (A Hernandez, Weiss, Brice, Reyes, Mella, Shackleford) if they run into bullpen fatigue and need an extra arm.
