  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Officially lands on IL

    Friedl was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right hamstring strain.

    Despite the fact that Friedl is already 27, this was his rookie season. He logged a .240/.314/.436 slash line with eight home runs and seven steals in 258 plate appearances. Mike Siani and Aristides Aquino are candidates to pick up an extra start or two over the final two days of the season.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Launches solo homer in win

    Friedl went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two total runs scored in Friday's 8-2 win over Milwaukee.

    Friedl kicked off the scoring in Friday's contest with a solo shot, then scored again on a Jonathan India homer in the ninth. Friedl now has six homers on the season and three this month, matching his total from last month. The outfielder has been hot in his last eight games, going 12-for-33 (.364) with four homers, four RBI and eight runs scored. During that span, Friedl has improved his batting average from .252 to .276.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: On bench vs. lefty

    Friedl is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Not in Friday's lineup

    Friedl will not start Friday against the Rockies.

    Friedl has hit .386/.440/.727 with three homers in 15 games since returning to the major in mid-August. That hasn't convinced the Reds to start him against lefties like Friday's starter Kyle Freeland, however, so it will be Stuart Fairchild who gets the nod in left field.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Friedl isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Logs big offensive effort

    Friedl went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Saturday.

    Friedl had the game's biggest hit, smacking a three-run homer in the sixth inning to snap a 1-1 tie. It was just his second long ball of the campaign over 40 contests with the Reds, though he did go deep eight times across 64 games with Triple-A Louisville. He isn't highly regarded for his power, but of Friedl's last six hits, four have gone for extra bases (two doubles, one triple, one homer).

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Remains on bench Wednesday

    Friedl isn't starting Wednesday against Philadelphia.

    The Reds are facing a left-handed pitcher (Cristopher Sanchez) for a second consecutive game Wednesday, so Friedl will remain out of the lineup. Stuart Fairchild is starting in left field and batting sixth.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sits against lefty

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

    With lefty Ranger Suarez taking the hill for Philadelphia, the lefty-hitting Friedl will take a seat for the first time since Aug. 17. Stuart Fairchild will get a look in the corner outfield in place of Friedl, who went 3-for-13 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two additional runs while starting in each of the previous four games.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Picking up steady playing time

    Friedl will start in left field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Friedl will draw his third consecutive start and his fourth in five games in left field after going 5-for-12 with a home run, two RBI and two additional runs over his prior four contests. At least against right-handed pitching, the lefty-hitting Friedl appears to have supplanted the righty-hitting Aristides Aquino as a regular in the Cincinnati outfield.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Joins big-league club

    The Reds recalled Friedl from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. He'll start in left field and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

    Before being optioned to the minors June 19, Friedl hit .200 with six extra-base hits in 29 games for the Reds. The outfielder will likely return to Louisville once Donovan Solano (personal) returns from his brief stint on the paternity list.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Sent packing to minors

    The Reds optioned Friedl to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    Friedl's demotion leaves Matt Reynolds and Max Schrock as the Reds' backup outfielders behind everyday starters Nick Senzel, Tommy Pham and Albert Almora. During his latest stint in the big leagues, Friedl appeared in nine games and went 6-for-23 with two extra-base hits, three RBI, three runs and a stolen base.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Swipes fifth bag

    Friedl went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Friedl drew his second consecutive start in the absence of Nick Senzel (back), and he led off on both occasions. His time in the majors could be short-lived -- Friedl was called up when Mike Moustakas hit COVID-19 injured list -- though that could depend on whether Senzel or Albert Almora (shoulder) requires their own stint on the shelf. Friedl is hitting only .197 across 85 plate appearances on the season, though he has five stolen bases without being caught and has also tallied 11 runs.

  • Reds' TJ Friedl: Recalled from minors

    Friedl was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Friedl has bounced on and off the roster throughout the season, as this will be his fourth separate stint with the big-league squad already this year. He's done very little with his sporadic opportunities, hitting .179/.237/.254 in 20 games, though he does have four steals. He doesn't seem to have a path to regular at-bats this time around, either, as it was infielder Mike Moustakas (undisclosed) who hit the injured list in a corresponding move.
