  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Stays hot in loss

    Candelario went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Candelario, who has multiple hits in three of the last six games, is heating up. He's 9-for-24 during that stretch with two doubles, a home run and six RBI. The resurrected bat prompted a move up the order to fifth, after Candelario spent time in the lower third since mid-April.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Drives in three

    Candelario went 1-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Giants.

    Candelario nearly missed a grand slam in the first inning and settled for a three-run double. This was just his second multi-RBI effort in 34 games this season. He's still battling a season-opening slump, but Candelario's bat has shown life of late. He's hit safely in four of the last five games, going 7-for-20 with a home run, two doubles and five RBI. Perhaps this recent five-game run will prompt a move up the batting order -- Candelario opened as the team's cleanup hitter but has since moved to the lower-third. The Reds are last in MLB with a .556 OPS out of the cleanup spot.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Fills in at first base

    Candelario started at first base and went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Arizona.

    Candelario moved across the diamond from third base to cover first for Christian Encarnacion-Strand (hand), who is expected to miss four-to-six weeks. Candelario is one of several Cincinnati bats off to a slow start; the three-hit night raised his season average to .206, just the second day it's been above .200. Santiago Espinal took over for Candelario at third base.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Back in action Tuesday

    Candelario (shin) is starting at third base and batting eighth Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    The 30-year-old was scratched from Sunday's starting nine due to a left shin contusion but is good to go following Monday's team off day. Candelario's .634 OPS for the season remains unimpressive, but he's gone 6-for-18 with a double and a homer over his past five contests.

    Candelario filled in at first base for Christian Encarnacion-Strand (hand), who was available off the bench.

    Candelario (illness) is starting at third base and hitting in the cleanup spot for Saturday's game against the Angels.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Not ready to start Wednesday

    Candelario (illness) remains out of the lineup Wednesday in Seattle.

    He'll give way to Santiago Espinal at third base for a second game in a row while he recovers from an illness. The Reds are off Thursday, so Candelario will have some additional time to shake off the ailment before Cincinnati opens its homestand Friday versus the Angels.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Scratched with illness

    Candelario was scratched from the Reds' lineup ahead of Tuesday's game versus Seattle due to an illness.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Bops homer in loss

    Candelario went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-3 loss to the Mariners.

    Candelario, who slumped to start the season, hit safely for a third straight game following a two-day break (including a team day off) from playing. The home run was the second of the season for the corner infielder, whose average ticked up to .190 through 15 games.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Dropped in batting order

    Candelario went 2-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored and was caught stealing in Sunday's 11-4 win over the White Sox.

    Candelario delivered his first multi-hit effort of the season, including a two-run single in the fourth inning. Another first for the infielder was his placement in the batting order; Candelario's first 13 starts were at cleanup, but a season-opening slump dropped him to seventh Sunday against a right-hander. It's unclear if the switch-hitting Candelario will also be dropped against left-handers. On Monday, the Reds kick off a three-game set against the Mariners, who have righties scheduled to start all three contests.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Absent from Friday's lineup

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Average plummets

    Candelario went 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Brewers.

    Candelario has one hit over the last 18 at-bats, dropping his average to .152 and OPS to .535 for the season. Those are unbecoming numbers for a cleanup hitter. He's part of a big hole in the middle of the Reds' order along with third place batter Christian Encarnacion-Strand (.154/.417). The slump is causing Candelario to chase more than normal; he's swinging at a career-high 36 percent of offerings outside the zone.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Plays field Saturday

    Candelario started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, double and run scored in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Mets.

  • Reds' Jeimer Candelario: Back in lineup Friday

    Candelario (elbow) will be the designated hitter and bat cleanup in Friday's game versus the Mets.

    Candelario had to exit Wednesday's game with a hyperextended right elbow, but he won't wind up missing any starts. It is possible that the switch hitter will be limited to DH duties for a bit, however, in order to protect the elbow.
