  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Having monster finish

    Friedl went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 11-7 win over the Guardians.

    Friedl homered for a fourth consecutive game and extended his hit streak to seven contests, during which he's 10-for-25 with seven walks, five extra-base hits, eight RBI, two steals and six runs scored. The outfielder, who had slumped after the All-Star break, has bounced back in September just as he reached a career high in plate appearances. Friedl's slashing .348/.471/.768 in 23 games this month.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Produces against lefty

    Friedl went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run and a stolen base in Saturday's 13-12 loss to the Pirates.

    Friedl raced around for an inside-the-park home run -- the Reds' first since 2012 -- in the second and later doubled, advancing a runner that eventually scored. Friedl often sits against left-handers, but the outfielder got the start Saturday after reaching base safely five times Friday. He responded to manager David Bell's faith with another productive night. Friedl has homered and stolen a base on consecutive nights, upping his season totals to 16 homers and 26 steals.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: On base five times

    Friedl went 2-for-2 with three walks, a home run, two RBI, a stolen base and an additional run scored in Friday's 7-5 loss to the Pirates.

    Friedl's two-run blast in the sixth inning gave Cincinnati its third (and final) one-run lead in the game, but the bullpen gave it back the next inning. The stolen base was Friedl's 25th and first one in 27 games.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Notches two extra-base hits in win

    Friedl went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple, and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

    Friedl notched his seventh triple and added to the Reds' lead with his 13th home run of the year in the seventh. He remains second on the team with 24 steals but has not swiped a bag since Aug. 23 and has failed to convert either of his two attempts over his last 17 games. The 27-year-old has been sitting more against lefties as of late and has hit 10 of his 13 home runs at home. Fantasy managers should deploy him in their lineups with caution this upcoming week with the Reds playing all six of their games on the road while also slated to face two lefties. Friedl now sits at a slash line of .270/.338/.439 with 52 RBI, 62 runs and a 36:79 BB:K in 490 plate appearances.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sitting against lefty

    Friedl is out of the lineup Friday against the Cardinals.

    Harrison Bader will cover center field and bat leadoff with the Cardinals sending left-hander Drew Rom to the mound. Bader should continue to start in center against all southpaws, though Friedl can sometimes appear in those lineups as the left fielder.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Goes deep in loss

    Friedl went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 15-7 loss to the Cubs.

    Friedl launched his 12th homer of the season in the first inning, the first blast in 15 games. The outfielder's hit a rough patch of late, going 6-for-40 (.150) over the last 11 contests.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Absent from lineup

    Friedl is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

    New addition Harrison Bader is in center field for the Reds versus left-hander Jordan Wicks. Friedl still figures to play plenty against right-handers, but even in those instances might be removed late for defense or a pinch-hitter.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Three hits, steal in win

    Friedl went 3-for-4 with a triple, a stolen base and a run scored in a 7-3 win over the Angels in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

    Friedl has gone 11-for-30 (.367) with two steals and seven runs scored over his last seven games. He has three multi-hit efforts in that span. The speedy outfielder continues to enjoy a strong 2023 with a .280/.344/.444 slash line, 11 home runs, 24 steals, 47 RBI and 54 runs scored across 105 contests. With Stuart Fairchild (concussion) on the injured list, Friedl has a chance to pick up playing time against southpaws in addition to his everyday status against right-handers.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Swipes 23rd bag in win

    Friedl went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and a steal in Wednesday's 7-2 victory over Cleveland.

With his three-hit effort Wednesday, the 28-year-old Friedl broke out of a 2-for-18 (.111) slump. He's now slashing .280/.346/.439 with 10 homers, 50 runs scored and 46 RBI across 396 plate appearances while going 23-for-27 in stolen base attempts this season.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Steps out of lineup versus lefty

    Friedl is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Guardians.

    Reds manager David Bell will stash three of his lefty-hitting regulars in Friedl, Joey Votto and Will Benson on the bench for the series opener while the Guardians bring southpaw Logan Allen to the hill. Stuart Fairchild will check in for Friedl in center field.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: On base three times

    Friedl batted leadoff and went 1-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 9-2 win over Pittsburgh.

    Reds manager David Bell reconfigured the top of the order, dropping Elly De La Cruz to third and putting Friedl atop the lineup, where he primary was from late May to mid-July. Bell told Gordon Wittenmyer of the Cincinnati Enquirer that he plans to "stick with it," referring to the lineup while also saying "nothing's permanent." For now, it looks like Friedl will bat first against right-handers. Cincinnati doesn't face a lefty until Tuesday, when the Reds return home for a series against the Guardians, who are projected to start Logan Allen.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Extends hit streak, caught stealing

    Friedl went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and was caught stealing in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Marlins.

    Friedl extended a modest hit streak to four games when doubled home a run in the bottom of the second inning to tie the game. One pitch later, he made the third out while attempting to steal third base. It was one of a pair of baserunning moments early in the game -- Luke Maile was unable to score from first on a Nick Senzel double an inning later -- that looked costly in retrospect. It was the fifth attempted steal in the last five games for Friedl, who has logged 21 thefts (caught four times) in 93 games.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Reaches double-double

    Friedl went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Nationals.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Belts ninth homer

    Friedl went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Nationals.

    His sixth-inning blast to right field ruined Joan Adon's unlikely shutout bid, but it was the only offense the Red could muster. Friedl has mostly been scuffling since the All-Star break, slashing .203/.241/.367 over 22 games with three of his nine homers and three of his 19 steals on the season.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sitting versus lefty

    Friedl isn't in the Reds' lineup Friday against the Nationals.

    With southpaw Patrick Corbin set to start on the mound for Washington, the left-handed bat of Friedl will stay in Cincy's dugout. Stuart Fairchild will take over in center field and bat ninth in Friedl's place.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Steals two bags off bench

    Friedl entered Friday's game as a pinch runner and stole two bases in a 6-3 extra-inning loss to Washington.

    Friedl ran for Joey Votto, who had walked in the ninth inning, and stole two bases before Nick Senzel's bases-loaded liner ended the frame. The two thefts upped Friedl's season total to 19 over 89 games.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Homers as pinch hitter

    Friedl went 2-for-2 with a home run in Wednesday's 16-6 loss to the Cubs.

    Friedl, who opened the game on the bench with a lefty starter on the hill for Chicago, pinch hit for Stuart Fairchild in the seventh inning and homered off righty reliever Mark Leiter. He stayed in the game to play center field. It was his eighth long ball in 87 games. Friedl is not typically subjected to sitting against left-handers, so this was likely just a maintenance day.
