Player Outlook
Carson Spiers fared well in his second go-round at Double-A Chattanooga in 2023 and was needed for MLB innings during the Reds' push for the postseason in September. In the minors, the right-hander's walk rate inched up, but Speirs' improved location within the strike zone resulted in a better strikeout percentage and significantly lowered home run rate. Desperate for pitching help in the majors, the Reds summoned Spiers from Double-A for four appearances (two starts) that went predictably awry. Spiers' name will mentioned when talking about the team's starting depth, but he could spend the entire season in the minors.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Worked on slider in AFL

    Spiers worked on being more consistent with his slider during 18 innings in the Arizona Fall League, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Spiers added additional innings in the Fall League after throwing 98 combined innings between the minors and majors in 2023, including stints as a starter and reliever. The right-hander said he pulled his slider while in the majors and was unable to get hitters chase it like minor-league batters. It's unclear in which role the Reds plan for him this spring, but Spiers is part of a big crowd of hurlers looking to stick with the parent club.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Secures three-inning save

    Spiers gave up one hit and struck out one batter over three scoreless innings en route to picking up his first career save in Friday's 19-2 win over the Cardinals. After being promoted from Triple-A Louisville earlier in the day, Spiers came on in relief of starter Brandon Williamson to put the finishing touches on the Reds' blowout win. Prior to the scoreless outing, Spiers gave up at least three runs in each of his first three career MLB appearances. Given that he tossed 40 pitches Friday, Spiers might not be available in relief for the Reds' final two games of the regular season and could be optioned back to Louisville in exchange for a fresh arm.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Back in majors

    Spiers' contract was selected from Double-A Chattanooga on Thursday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Spiers has been roughed up for seven runs over seven innings in two starts for the Reds this season. He's expected to work out of the bullpen during his upcoming stint with the Reds and should offer the Cincinnati relief corps some length.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Returns to minors

    The Reds returned Spiers to Double-A Chattanooga on Sunday. The Reds have been shorthanded for starting pitchers over the past couple weeks with multiple players on the COVID-19 injured list, which allowed Spiers to make his first two starts in the big leagues. The 25-year-old allowed seven earned runs over seven frames between the two outings, so it's hardly a surprise he's heading back to the minors.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Struggles in short start

    Spiers (0-1) took the loss against St. Louis on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one batter over three-plus innings. Spiers got his second big-league start after tossing four innings against the Cubs last Sunday, but he wasn't able to impress in the opportunity. The right-hander was handed a 3-1 lead through two frames but allowed the Cardinals to draw even on a two-run homer by Willson Contreras in the third. Spiers was allowed to return for the fourth, but he was pulled after giving up an inning-opening single to Tommy Edman. The rookie hurler was hurt by his wildness -- he walked three batters, and two of those came around to score. Spiers has given up seven runs on 10 hits while posting an 8:5 K:BB over seven frames across his two outings. With the Reds fighting for a playoff spot and likely welcoming a trio of starters (Hunter Greene, Brandon Williamson and Ben Lively) who have been on the COVID-19 IL back soon, Spiers may be headed back to the minors in short order.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Nabs another start

    The Reds list Spiers as their probable starting pitcher for Saturday's home game against the Cardinals. Though Hunter Greene (illness) is scheduled to return from the COVID-19 list to start Sunday's series finale, the Reds will still have an opening in the rotation for Spiers this weekend with Ben Lively (illness) and Brandon Williamson (illness) still on the mend and with Graham Ashcraft (toe) recently landing on the 15-day IL. Due to the Reds' depleted rotation, Spiers made the jump from Double-A Chattanooga to the majors last weekend and took a no-decision in a 15-7 loss to the Cubs, striking out seven while allowing three earned runs on five hits and two walks over four innings. The 25-year-old right-hander doesn't make for an inspiring streaming option against St. Louis and could be sent back to the minors immediately after Saturday's start.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Set for spot start Sunday

    Spiers will start for the Reds on Sunday against the Cubs in what will be his major-league debut, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The Reds' pitching staff has been hit hard by COVID-19, so Spiers will be pressed into a starting role just two days after receiving his first MLB call-up. Though he held a 3.69 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with a 106:41 K:BB over 83 innings this season at Double-A Chattanooga, Spiers isn't a recommended streaming option Sunday.

  • Reds' Carson Spiers: Added to active roster

    The Reds added Spiers to their active roster from Double-A Chattanooga on Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Spiers will act as a replacement for Fernando Cruz, who was placed on the COVID-19 IL on Friday. Spiers has spent all season in Double-A and holds a 3.69 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 83 innings. He will be making his major-league debut whenever he gets into a game.
