  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Unveils two new pitches

    Greene allowed one hit and two walks while striking out four over 1.2 innings in a spring start Sunday against the Angels.

    Greene busted out a curveball and split-finger fastball during the outing, adding two new offerings he worked on during the offseason to an arsenal that includes a four-seam fastball, slider and a rarely used changeup, per Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. "I tried to keep it simple," Greene said. "I feel like I had a good feel for everything. Curveball was a little iffy, but as far as spring I will continue to work on it." The right-hander was exuberant about the state of the new split and will continue to hone it for Opening Day and beyond. He had been scheduled to pitch two innings but reached his pitch limit thanks to a long first inning that included two walks and three strikeouts.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Working on curve

    Greene worked on adding a curveball to his repertoire during the offseason, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Greene thew mostly his fastball (54.4 percent) and slider (40.3 percent) last season while occasionally mixing in a changeup (5.3 percent). The numbers were similar to 2022. "It's exciting," Greene said Sunday about the new pitch. "(I'll) continue to refine it and work on it, but looking forward to being able to have a good offering this season." Cincinnati pitching coach Derek Johnson said Greene needed a slower pitch, which will make his fastball play better. How much Greene throws the curve, which is in the low-80s this spring, will depend on how it looks against live batters during Cactus League games. The 24-year-old right-hander, who is expected to lead the Reds' rotation, has not thrown more than 125.2 innings in either of his first two seasons in the majors.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Allows four runs in loss

    Greene (4-7) surrendered four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Cardinals.

    The Cardinals tagged him for one run in the second inning and three more in the third, and that was enough for Greene to take the loss. The right-hander allowed 16 runs (15 earned) over 26.2 innings across his last five starts of the campaign. He finished the year with a 4.82 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 152:48 K:BB through 112 innings across 22 starts. It's a small step back from his 4.44 ERA in 125.2 innings in 2022. The hard-throwing 24-year-old is still likely to feature in the Reds' rotation in 2024, but he could benefit from further development of his changeup to improve his arsenal -- opposing hitters slugged .500 against that pitch and .515 on his fastball in 2023.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Hammered by Guardians

    Greene escaped with a no-decision Tuesday in the Reds' 11-7 win over the Guardians, surrendering seven runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over three-plus innings. He struck out three.

    After a scoreless first frame, the wheels came off for Greene as he served up a three-run blast to Bo Naylor in the second inning before Kole Calhoun and Andres Gimenez took him deep in the third. After the right-hander put the first two batters he faced in the fourth inning aboard, he left the mound having tossed 70 pitches (47 strikes), but Cincinnati got Greene off the hook for his seventh loss of the season by taking the lead in the top of the fifth. The awful outing snapped a string of three impressive starts for the 24-year-old, who now has a 4.57 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 32:7 K:BB through 21.2 innings in September. If he stays on turn, Greene lines up to start the Reds' final game of the regular season Oct. 1 in St. Louis, with a potential wild-card spot on the line -- the team heads into play Wednesday 1.5 games back of the Cubs for the final playoff berth in the NL.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: Racks up career-high 14 strikeouts

    Greene did not factor into the decision Wednesday against Minnesota, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over seven innings while striking out 14.

    Greene dominated the Twins over his seven innings of work, fanning four of the first six batters he faced en route to posting a career-high 14 strikeouts on the afternoon. It marked the right-hander's fourth consecutive start in which he allowed three or fewer runs and the first time he's gone at least seven innings since May 21. It was also Greene's fifth start this season with 10 or more strikeouts.

  • Reds' Hunter Greene: One out shy of quality start

    Greene did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk over 5.2 innings against the Mets. He struck out six.

    Greene was well on his way to finishing six scoreless innings in line for the win, but a two-out three-run home run by Pete Alonso tied the game for the Mets and sent Greene to the showers. Prior to Alonso's homer, Greene had gone 17 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run, and his six strikeouts lifted his total to 129 in 97 innings for a K:9 of 12.0. His next start is tentatively scheduled to take place at home against the Twins.
