Cincinnati Reds Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Schebler went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's win over Cleveland.
Impact: It was the third straight game with a home run for Schebler, and the 26-year-old outfielder is now up to 13 homers, 27 RBI, three stolen bases, 20 runs and a .255/.324/.556 slash line for the year. While his early-season success is likely unsustainable, Schebler is locked into the middle of the Cincinnati order and has posted excellent power numbers in the minors.
News: Feldman (3-4) allowed just a single run on four hits and two walks while striking out a season-high nine batters through six innings during Monday's win over Cleveland.
Impact: The veteran has been hit or miss this season, as he's allowed 16 earned runs through 11.2 innings over just three starts but only nine runs in his other seven outings. As a result, his 3.99 ERA and 1.28 WHIP are a little misleading. Feldman has pitched reasonably well and is providing serviceable numbers for deeper settings. He projects to face the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in his next start this weekend.
News: Cozart (wrist) is back in the lineup Monday against the Indians, batting second and playing shortstop.
Impact: Although Cozart's absence from Sunday's contest was a scheduled maintenance day, he apparently has been dealing with a sore wrist for some time. However, it doesn't seem like it's too serious, although it may mean that he'll get days off periodically in order to keep his wrist healthy. In the meantime, however, feel free to slot him into the lineup as he carries his .351 batting average into a matchup with Cleveland right-hander Josh Tomlin.
News: Mesoraco is not in the lineup Monday against the Indians, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Mesoraco has been raking since getting healthy, but he'll head to the bench for a night off on the heels of his second straight two-hit showing. Tucker Barnhart will assume catching duties for the night.
News: Finnegan (shoulder) will begin throwing off a mound Tuesday, John Fay of WCPO Cincinnati reports.
Impact: This is a step in the right direction for the left-hander, who also commented that he's feeling great at the moment. Manager Bryan Price projects that Finnegan will still be able to return to the rotation in mid-June, which suggests that he's still following his original timetable. A more specific return date should come forth once he progresses further in his recovery.
News: Hamilton went 0-for-5, but still stole two bases and scored a run during Sunday's loss to Colorado.
Impact: Hamilton is now up to 23 steals and 31 runs for the season, and with a .310/.363/.464 slash line in May, he's providing excellent fantasy results of late. His current .258 batting average isn't crippling, and Hamilton has raised his on-base percentage 83 points this month. Elite production in steals and runs appears to be a lock at this stage of the game.
News: Votto went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI during Sunday's loss to Colorado.
Impact: Sunday was just business as usual for the slugger, as Votto has registered seven multi-hit games in May and sports a .349/.512/.619 slash line for the month. Considering the veteran first baseman has typically been a better second-half producer, his excellent start to 2017 is laying the groundwork for his first 30-homer season since his MVP campaign in 2010.
News: Arroyo (3-4) gave up six runs over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies. He allowed nine hits, including four homers, while walking two, hitting one and striking out four.
Impact: Despite Arroyo's ERA climbing to 6.75 with the outing, Reds manager Bryan Price doesn't intend to remove him from the starting rotation soon, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "Certainly, he's a veteran pitcher. He's a quality human being and he's a big part of the culture here in our clubhouse," Price said. "It's a challenging game. It's unforgiving. It doesn't even respect the best of people or the best of pitchers and players. I just have a lot of optimism with him because he knows how to pitch and he's been a winner." We'll see how the plans are altered once some of the Reds' injured starters (Homer Bailey, Anthony DeSclafani and Brandon Finnegan) begin to return.

Impact: Schebler homered for the third straight game and is 6 for 13 with six RBIs over his last four.
