    Steer gave the Reds a 5-0 lead with his three-run blast to the short porch in right field in the fifth inning. The long ball was his 11th of the campaign, and he's just shy of the halfway point to reaching the 23 homers he hit last season. Steer also has 54 RBI, 41 runs and 13 stolen bases through 355 plate appearances this year.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Stays hot in win

    Steer went 2-for-5 with a double, a two-run homer and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

    Steer hit a leadoff double in the third inning before coming around to score Cincinnati's third run of the contest, adding a two-run shot off Miles Mikolas in the following frame.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: May remain at first base

    Steer started at first base and went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Steer's been locked in of late, going 11-for-35 with eight RBI over the last nine contests. He began the season as the team's primary left fielder but has played a lot at first base since Christian Encarnacion-Strand (wrist) landed on the injured list in May. With news that Encarnacion-Strand opted for surgery that likely spells the end of his season, Steer is in line to become the club's primary first baseman. That could change when Noelvi Marte (suspension) returns. At that point, with Marte slotted in at third base, Jeimer Candelario could move from third to first.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Drives in three in win

    Steer went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 11-5 win over Pittsburgh.

    Steer sparked the Reds' offense with a two-run double in the fourth inning, then singled in a run as part of the team's four-run sixth.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Belts two-run blast

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to Boston on Saturday.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Homers in loss

    Steer went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Brewers.

    Steer gave the Reds a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning when he belted his eighth home run of the season. He's been quiet of late, having entered the contest on a 4-for-31 (.129) run with one RBI over the previous nine games. Despite the drop in production, Steer leads Cincinnati with 42 RBI.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Logs steal in loss

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Cleveland.

    Steer recorded his 12th steal in 65 games, putting him on pace to surpass the 15 he had over 156 games in 2023. Speed was not a hallmark to his game in the minors, but the running Reds have changed that. On an unrelated note, the team received news that first baseman Christian Encarnacion-Strand is mulling season-ending wrist surgery. That means Steer, who has been the primary fill-in for Encarnacion-Strand in recent weeks, may continue on as Cincinnati's regular at first base.

    Steer went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 12-7 win over the Rockies.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Settling into groove at plate

    Steer went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 13-3 win over Colorado.

    After a rough May in which he posted a .176 average and .629 OPS, Steer has gotten off to a strong start to June. He's delivered multiple hits in all three games on the month, going 8-for-14.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Homers again Saturday

    Steer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Dodgers.

    He touched up Walker Buehler in the first inning to give the Reds an early lead. As Mark Sheldon of MLB.com notes, Steer has now gone deep in back-to-back games after entering the series without a homer since May 1 (17 games). His struggles from the middle of the order this month have led the Reds to the cellar in the NL Central, though it's certainly not all his fault. Steer sits with a .227/.341/.403 line with six homers, 35 RBI, 25 runs scored and 11 steals through 50 games this season.

    Steer got the Reds' offense started with a three-run blast in the first inning. He snapped a 17-game homerless drought, during which he'd posted an unsightly .527 OPS. Despite a terrific start to 2024 (1.264 OPS through 11 games), Steer now owns a .227/.343/.390 slash line with 17 extra-base hits through 204 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Returns to starting nine

    Steer (ankle) will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Steer didn't start in either of the last two games while managing a sore ankle, though he felt well enough to make a pinch-hitting appearance in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. Monday's team off day plus an absence from the lineup in Tuesday's 2-0 win over San Diego appears to have provided sufficient time for Steer to move past the ankle issue. He'll likely continue to see the bulk of his starts at first base rather than in the corner outfield for the duration of Christian Encarnacion-Strand's (wrist) stint on the injured list.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Out again Tuesday

    Steer (ankle) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

    Steer was held out of Sunday's game with an ankle injury and remains out of action after Monday's off day. The good news is Steer said Tuesday that he's feeling better and expects to be available off the bench, just as he was Sunday when he served in a pinch-hit capacity, per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Has ankle injury

    Steer is dealing with a sore ankle, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Steer was held out of the starting lineup Sunday as a result of the ankle but served as a pinch hitter. He walked for Will Benson with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and was removed for a pinch runner. Cincinnati manager David Bell said Steer should be back to 100 percent for Tuesday's series opener at home against the Padres.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Taking seat Sunday

    Steer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

  • Reds' Spencer Steer: Idle Tuesday

    Steer isn't in the Reds' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
