For the first 2 1/2 months of the season, Reds manager Bryan Price seemed to make all of the right bullpen moves as his rotation struggled to go deep into games. In turn, relievers were able to do everything that was asked of them.

Corey Dickerson just keeps stating his case to become the American League's DH at this year's All-Star Game in Miami.
Monday's 7-3 win over the Rays ended the Reds' longest losing streak of 2017 at nine games. And while there will be more wins to come, few may feel as satisfying as this one was, especially since it required a quick late-inning response after a 3-1 lead was blown in the seventh inning.

The Reds announced on Monday that they have placed on the 10-day disabled list veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo and shortstop Zack Cozart, summoning prospects Jesse Winker and Ariel Hernandez to Cincinnati in their stead.

Bronson Arroyo's shoulder has been barking loudly lately. The Reds starter is listening and acknowledged he might be done pitching. Arroyo lasted a season-low three innings, allowing five earned runs and seven hits Sunday during the Reds' 8-7 loss to the Dodgers
The Dodgers and Reds seem to be going in opposite directions after another Los Angeles victory on Sunday. With the 8-7 win, the Dodgers swept Cincinnati for the second time in a week. This marks the ninth loss in a row for the Reds, tying the longest losing streak by a Major League team this season, while Los Angeles has won nine of its last 10.
In a string of roster moves made Sunday morning, Cincinnati activated catcher Stuart Turner from the 10-day disabled list, recalled right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla, optioned reliever Jake Buchanan to Triple-A Louisville and designated for assignment pitcher Asher Wojciechowski.

For all the attention that has been heaped on Pete Rose in the past year -- at his Reds Hall of Fame induction and number retirement ceremonies last season, and the unveiling and dedication of his new bronze statue on Saturday -- the all-time hit king never wavers from his insistence to bring his former teammates into every conversation.
By the time Drew Storen made his Major League debut on May 17, 2010, with the Washington Nationals, he was well ready. This was a moment over a decade in the making.
Joey Votto gets fooled by Ryu pitch, gets weird
In five road starts entering Saturday, Dodgers lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu was winless this season. Ryu found the perfect team to remedy that problem in the Reds. A 10-2 Dodgers victory gave Cincinnati its season-high eighth-straight loss. The Reds are also a big league worst 3-14 vs. left-handed starters in 2017.
The Reds are in the midst of an eight-game skid, and the issue plaguing them most over this recent stretch is one that's been ubiquitous all season: poor starting pitching.
Bobby Bradley's season got off to a rough start as he went hitless in seven of his first 10 days and batted just .176 over the month of April. However, Bradley picked it up by hitting .271 in May, and after another strong performance on Saturday, the Indians' No. 4 prospect is batting .309 in June and .250 for the season.
Reds lefty starter Brandon Finnegan is continuing to make steady progress toward returning to the rotation, following his second rehab assignment start on Friday night.
The troubles that plagued the Reds on their road trip seem to have followed them back to Great American Ball Park, and the Dodgers took advantage in the series opener between the two teams Friday night. Less than a week after sweeping Cincinnati on its home turf, Los Angeles handed the Reds their seventh loss in a row -- tying a season high -- with a 3-1 victory.
