  • Reds' Carson Spiers: MRI comes back clean

    Spiers (shoulder) had a clean MRI on Saturday, and he is likely to miss only one start, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Spiers landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday after notching a victory against the Marlins on Friday, but he looks to have avoided a serious injury. The right Reds are listing his right shoulder issue as an impingement, with an MRI seemingly ruling out a strain or structural damage. Spiers is eligible to return from the IL on July 28, which could line him up to make his next start either in Tampa Bay or at home versus the Cubs.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Strikes out nine in win

    Spiers (3-2) earned the win Friday over the Marlins, allowing three runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out nine.

    All three of the runs charged to Spiers came on a Jesus Sanchez homer in the fourth inning that cut Cincinnatti's lead to 7-3. Otherwise, the 26-year-old right-hander was sharp, logging a career-high nine strikeouts while earning his third win in his last four starts. Spiers' ERA now sits at 3.83 with a 1.26 WHIP and 41:9 K:BB across 47 innings this season. With Graham Ashcraft (elbow) potentially out for the year, Spiers will likely stick in the Reds rotation in the second half.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Lands on injured list

    The Reds placed Spiers on the 15-day injured list due to a right shoulder impingement Saturday.

    Spiers notched a career-high nine punchouts over five innings in a win over Miami on Friday, but he apparently hurt his shoulder in the process. The right-hander's move to the IL means he won't be eligible to return until July 28. Cincinnati called up reliever Tony Santillan from Triple-A in a corresponding move, but it's not clear who will take Spiers' spot in the rotation following the All-Star break.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Can't keep ball in yard Friday

    Spiers (2-2) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.2 innings as the Reds fell 5-4 to the Tigers. He struck out three.

    The right-hander served up solo shots to Parker Meadows and Colt Keith in the third inning, before Keith tagged him again for a two-run blast in the fifth. Spiers had lasted exactly six innings in each of his prior three starts, but after allowing zero homers over his first 31.1 big-league innings this season, he's now been taken deep four times in his last 10.2 frames. He'll look to tighten up his command in his next outing, which lines up to come at home next week against the Rockies.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Logs quality start in win

    Spiers (2-1) earned the win against the Cardinals on Saturday, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and one walk with four strikeouts over six innings.

    Spiers allowed an unearned run in the third inning and surrendered a solo home run to Paul Goldschmidt in the sixth. He has now thrown exactly six innings in each of his three starts this season and has posted back-to-back quality start victories. On the year, the 26-year-old owns a 3.13 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB over 37.1 innings and lines up to face the Tigers next week.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Earns first career win

    Spiers (1-1) yielded three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over the Pirates.

    Spiers coughed up a run in the third inning and two more in the fifth. He's given up seven runs in 12 innings during his two starts this season, both of which came against Pittsburgh. He's sporting a 3.45 ERA with a 25:6 K:BB through 31.1 frames this season. Spiers is currently in line for a start in St. Louis this weekend.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Making second start Monday

    Spiers is slated to start Monday's game against the Pirates in Cincinnati.

    He'll be rewarded with a second turn through the rotation and a second straight matchup with the Pirates after he held the Bucs to four runs while striking out five over six innings during his start this past Monday in Pittsburgh. Across his one start and five extended relief appearances this season, Spiers owns a 3.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB over 25.1 innings.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Goes six innings in loss

    Spiers (0-1) took the loss Monday versus the Pirates after he gave up four runs on seven hits and no walks over six innings. He struck out five.

    Spiers gave up five hits and all four runs in the first two innings before settling in nicely. The 26-year-old had impressed as a multi-inning reliever, leading to the opportunity in the rotation. There is no word yet on whether he will get another turn through the rotation, but the 3.20 ERA through 25.1 innings this season should keep him in the conversation.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Moving into rotation Monday

    Reds manager David Bell said Spiers will start Monday's game in Pittsburgh, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Spiers was called up from Triple-A Louisville last Sunday and was immediately put to work in long relief later that day in the Reds' series finale against the Cubs. With starter Frankie Montas getting chased from the game midway through the top of the second, Spiers stepped in and struck out seven batters over 5.2 shutout innings while allowing just six baserunners. Prior to the call-up, Spiers had already been stretched out as a starter at Louisville and compiled a 2.51 ERA and 1.06 WHIP across 46.2 innings, and on the heels of his impressive showing out of the bullpen, he'll now get a chance to fill the opening in the big-league rotation that was created by Graham Ashcraft's recent demotion. Nick Martinez had worked as a primary pitcher behind an opener the last time Ashcraft's turn came up Tuesday versus the Guardians, but he'll presumably move into a more traditional bullpen role now that Spiers has been awarded a start.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Fans seven in relief

    Spiers pitched 5.2 scoreless innings of relief Sunday against the Cubs, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out seven.

    Spiers got called up Sunday morning and immediately saw game action, relieving Frankie Montas in the second inning. The long reliever made his fifth appearance of the season for the Reds, replacing Emilio Pagan (lat) in the bullpen. The 26-year-old dominated the Cubs, punching out seven batters and lowering his ERA from 3.29 to 2.33. It remains to be seen if Spiers will be used as a starter, but he should continue to work in a multi-inning role -- Spiers has pitched three or more innings in all of his appearances this season.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Back from Triple-A

    The Reds recalled Spiers was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    The right-hander was optioned to Louisville in late May but will rejoin the Reds as Emilio Pagan (lat) heads to the injured list. Spiers has filled a long-relief role in his four outings for the Reds this season and has a 3.29 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB over 13.2 innings.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Optioned to Triple-A

    Spiers was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

    Spiers threw 3.1 innings against the Dodgers in Sunday's series finale, allowing one run on three hits while striking out three. He has spent most of the season so far riding the shuttle between Triple-A and the majors, and he will likely return again when the Reds need a fresh arm. For now, Spiers will head down to make room on the roster for Nick Lodolo (groin).

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Throws three relief innings

    Spiers allowed one run on three hits while striking out three over three relief innings in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Dodgers.

    Spiers was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Friday after the Reds added Justin Wilson (shoulder) to the injured list. A starter in the minors, Spiers' length came in handy for the Reds, whose offense showed little pushback or comeback potential against Los Angeles right-hander Walker Buehler.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Back with Reds

    The Reds recalled Spiers from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

    Spiers will come up from the minors to replace Justin Wilson (shoulder), who landed on the 15-day IL on Friday. Spiers allowed three runs in four innings during his season debut in early April, but he has fared much better in Triple-A with a 2.43 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. The 26-year-old right-hander has been used as a starter in seven of his eight appearances at Louisville this year, though he will likely be used as a multi-inning reliever while with the Reds.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Optioned to Louisville

    The Reds optioned Spiers to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

    Spiers will be squeezed off the MLB roster following the return of Nick Lodolo (calf) from the injured list Saturday. Spiers allowed four runs (three earned) in his lone appearance during his stint in the majors and could return to Cincinnati later this season to give the Reds' bullpen a fresh arm.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Bullpen-saving effort

    Spiers allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out one over four relief innings in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to Milwaukee.

    Spiers, who was called up Monday to replace Tejay Antone (elbow), was needed for a bullpen-saving stint. After the Reds had fallen behind, 9-1 in the seventh inning, the game was in the hands of Spiers, who had been part of the rotation at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Called up by Cincy

    The Reds recalled Spiers from Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

    The right-hander will take the bullpen spot of Tejay Antone (elbow), who was placed on the injured list Monday. Spiers made his big-league debut with four appearances last season and had a 6.92 ERA over 13 innings.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Shines over four innings

    Spiers allowed three hits and struck out five over four scoreless relief innings in Wednesday's spring game against San Diego.

    The Reds are focused on getting their projected rotation members ramped up, but Spiers will be stretched out as organizational starter depth. The 26-year-old right-hander, who is expected to open at Triple-A Louisville, has allowed two earned runs over 8.2 innings, striking out 11 and walking one.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Gives up first spring runs

    Spiers allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out two over 2.2 innings in Friday's spring game against the Diamondbacks.

    Spiers made his second Cactus League appearance, entering for multiple innings following starter Brandon Williamson. The right-handed Spiers retired the first two batters in the fourth inning then allowed three two-out runs, including a solo home run. Arizona touched Spiers for another run in the sixth. He's one of many candidates for the final rotation spot but a lack of meaningful experience at the upper levels of the minors could lead to Spiers opening at Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Starts Cactus League opener

    Spiers allowed three hits and struck out four over two scoreless innings in Saturday's spring start against the Guardians.

    Spiers, who served dual roles as a starter and reliever in 2023, opened the Cactus League schedule for the Reds as a starter. The performance was an encouraging outing for Spiers, as two of his four punchouts came against players that rarely strike out -- Steven Kwan and Jose Ramirez. It would be a surprise if the right-hander wins a rotation spot, but a strong spring could keep Spiers on a starter's trajectory and put hm atop the list of depth starters.
