  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Lit up for seven runs

    Ashcraft (5-6) took the loss Wednesday, allowing seven runs on four hits and five walks over 5.1 innings against the Cubs. He struck out four.

    After beginning the game with a 1-2-3 first inning, Ashcraft ran into trouble in the second, allowing three consecutive batters to reach base before giving up a three-run homer to David Bote. The right-hander mostly cruised through the next three innings before allowing four of the first five batters to reach base in the sixth and eventually being charged with four more runs. Ashcraft allowed four or more runs in each of his final three starts to go along with seven walks and seven strikeouts.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Tagged with six runs

    Ashcraft (5-5) allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks over 2.2 innings Friday, striking out one and taking a loss against the Cubs.

    Ashcraft was charged with three runs in each of the second and third innings during Friday's brutal outing. It was his shortest start since June 30 when he coughed up seven runs in just 2.1 frames. Over his last four starts, Ashcraft has posted an unsightly 6.86 ERA, raising his season number to 4.52 across 18 starts. The 24-year-old righty is expected to face the Cubs at home next week to finish off his rookie campaign.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Allows four runs in loss

    Ashcraft (5-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits over four innings against the Brewers. He struck out two.

    Ashcraft was able to keep the Brewers off the board for the first three innings before running into trouble in the fourth. After Rowdy Tellez reached on a one-out single, Hunter Renfroe crushed a hanging slider over the wall in left field to put the Reds down 2-1. The right-hander then proceeded to hit Luis Urias with a pitch two batters later before giving up back-to-back singles and allowing two more runs to cross the plate. Ashcraft looked a bit rusty in his return from the injured list and will seek better results in his next start, which should come next week against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Activated prior to start

    Ashcraft (biceps) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list prior to Saturday's start against the Brewers.

    Ashcraft was on the injured list for just over a month due to biceps soreness, but he recently completed a rehab assignment in which he allowed 10 runs (eight earned) on 15 hits and a walk while striking out 11 in 5.2 innings over two appearances. He'll have the chance to make a few more starts for the Reds down the stretch as long as he can remain healthy.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Set to return Saturday

    Ashcraft (biceps) is scheduled to start Saturday against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Ashcraft has missed a month of action with his injury, but his absence is expected to last only a few more days. He will be looking to pick up where he left off, having posted a 2.67 ERA over the five starts he made before landing on the injured list.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Next rehab outing set

    Ashcraft (biceps) allowed two runs on four hits with six strikeouts and a walk over three innings Thursday for Double-A Chattanooga, and he's scheduled to continue his rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Louisville, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 24-year-old threw 53 pitches in his first rehab start Thursday, and he apparently came out of the outing okay since his next start is already on the calendar. It was Ashcraft's first game action in nearly a month due to the biceps soreness, and he should continue building up his workload Monday.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Begins rehab assignment

    Ashcraft (biceps) was sent on a rehab assignment to Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday.

    He has been sidelined for four weeks with biceps soreness, but he seems on track to rejoin the big-league rotation before the end of the season. Ashcraft had a 2.67 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB in 33.2 innings over his last five starts before landing on the IL. He'll likely toss around 45-to-50 pitches Wednesday before making another rehab start at Triple-A Louisville early next week.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Close to rehab assignment

    Ashcraft (biceps) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Ashcraft has been on the injured list since Aug. 23 due to biceps soreness, but he threw a bullpen session Tuesday and tossed live batting practice Friday. Assuming he feels good after facing hitters, the right-hander will likely join a minor-league affiliate next week and should be in the mix to return from the IL for the final few weeks of the regular season.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Bullpen session on tap

    Ashcraft (biceps) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 24-year-old resumed a throwing program last week after he landed on the injured list with biceps soreness Aug. 23, and he's now progressed to mound work. Assuming all goes well Tuesday, Ashcraft is tentatively slated to throw live batting practice Friday.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Throwing again

    Ashcraft (biceps) was spotted playing catch on the field Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The activity is a sign that Ashcraft isn't being shut down entirely after landing on the 15-day injured list just under a week ago, but he'll still need to advance to mound work and facing hitters in live batting practice before a potential return date will come into focus. Ashcraft is one of five starting pitchers currently residing on the IL, with Hunter Greene (shoulder), Robert Dugger (shoulder), T.J. Zeuch (back) and Connor Overton (back) also on the mend from injuries.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Sidelined with biceps soreness

    The Reds placed Ashcraft on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right biceps soreness.

    Ashcraft had been confirmed to start Wednesday's game in Philadelphia, so the biceps soreness may have cropped up in his most recent bullpen session following his last outing Friday in Pittsburgh. Right-hander T.J. Zeuch was one of three players called up from Triple-A Louisville, and he could enter the rotation Wednesday if he isn't needed out of the bullpen Tuesday. Ashcraft had gotten off to a nice start to the second half, having posted a 3.29 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 32:11 K:BB across 38.1 innings coming out of the All-Star break. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Ashcraft is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, but since the rookie right-hander isn't dealing with any elbow pain, the Reds are hopeful he'll pitch again in 2022, according to manager David Bell.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Punches out eight

    Ashcraft yielded three runs on nine hits and a walk over 6.2 frames Friday against Pittsburgh. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Strikes out four in loss

    Ashcraft threw 65 of 102 pitches for strikes in Saturday's contest, and he struggled to keep runners of the basepaths, resulting in three earned runs across 6.1 frames. The righty has allowed four or more hits in all but one of his 15 games this season, resulting in 92 hits across 86.1 innings to go along with 56 strikeouts. Despite the three-run outing, Ashcraft picked up a quality start, his second of the month and his eighth of the season. He will take a 3.96 ERA into his next outing.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Allows one run in no-decision

    Ashcraft did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over 5.2 innings in a 4-2 win over the Brewers. He struck out three.

    It took the Reds' rookie 102 pitches to get through 5.2 innings, but he emerged relatively unscathed as he surrendered just one run, on a home run off the bat of Willy Adames. Ashcfraft struggled in June with three starts in which he allowed more than three earned runs, but he has bounced back, allowing more than three runs in just one out of six starts since the beginning of July. He'll look to keep the momentum going against the Cubs next week.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Falls just short of complete game

    Ashcraft (5-2) picked up the win in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Marlins, allowing one unearned run on five hits over 8.1 innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    A Kyle Farmer error in the sixth inning led to the only damage against Ashcraft, and the rookie hurler got a chance to go for his first career complete game before getting lifted after 107 pitches (75 strikes) following a one-out double by Jesus Aguilar in the ninth. It was Ashcraft's second straight quality start and seventh of the year, and he'll carry a 4.12 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 49:17 K:BB through 74.1 innings into his next outing.

    Ashcraft allowed four earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out eight across 4.2 innings Friday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.

Ashcraft owns a 4.70 ERA and a 40:15 K:BB across 59.1 innings on the season.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Reds-Cardinals postponed Sunday

    Ashcraft and the Reds won't face the Cardinals on Sunday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in St. Louis, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

The rookie, who has gone 4-2 with a 4.45 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 54.2 innings in the big leagues this season, is expected to be part of a six-man rotation coming out of the break with Tyler Mahle (shoulder) trending toward a return from the injured list for the Reds' first series of the second half.
