Cincinnati Reds Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Suarez went 3-for-5 with two solo homers in the a 12-8 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Impact: Suarez blasted his fourth and fifth homers of the campaign, but it wasn't enough to lift his team to a victory. In addition to his fast start with his power stroke, he's also hitting .367, and it's entirely possible that the 25-year-old is ready to reward fantasy owners with a breakout season.
News: Votto went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, two runs and five RBI in Saturday's loss to the Cubs
Impact: Votto launched his sixth homer of the season off Jake Arrieta, but despite a big day at the plate, he wasn't able to lead his team to a victory. Although he's hitting just .239 in April, his fantasy owners will certainly be happy with his homer total, and there's little worry that the lefty will let down fantasy owners by the time the season ends.
News: Reed (0-1) allowed seven runs on four hits and five walks while striking out three across two innings to take the loss Saturday against the Cubs.
Impact: Reed made the start as the Reds are dealing with multiple injuries to their starting rotation, and he gave up a three-run homer to Anthony Rizzo and a grand slam to Wilson Contreras in the first two innings to put a quick end to his day. Before this outing, he had been impressive as a reliever, and although it's possible he gets another shot in the rotation, he also could find himself back in the bullpen. For now, his next start has yet to be determined.
News: Stephenson is off to a decent start at Low-A Dayton, hitting .265/.357/.449 with two homers and 14 RBI in 56 plate appearances.
Impact: The important part is that Stephenson, the Reds' first-round pick in the 2015 draft, has stayed healthy so far after only playing 39 games at Dayton last year. He's still just 20 years old, so there's plenty of time for him to develop.
News: Davis (forearm) could start Wednesday's game against the Brewers if deemed healthy, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Manager Bryan Price said Tim Adleman is still the tentative starter, but the team is clearly optimistic about Davis' recovery. The young right-hander has been out since Apr. 11, when he was struck by a pitch on his throwing arm. Look for a firmer decision to come down within the next few days.
News: Schebler is batting sixth and starting in center field for Saturday's game against the Cubs.
Impact: It marks the first time this season that Schebler has played any position other than right field, as he takes over for a resting Billy Hamilton. Scooter Gennett, meanwhile, will man right field. It's been a rough start for Schebler, as evidenced by his .164 average, but the Reds have been rather limited in alternative options at this point.
News: Peraza is starting at second base and hitting leadoff for Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jamie Ramsey of Better Off Red reports.
Impact: Billy Hamilton is getting the day off, allowing Peraza to take over as the No. 1 hitter for the first time this season. The 22-year-old has demonstrated his talent on the basepaths this year, swiping six bags over 16 games, but has been struggling mightily from the dish, recording just two hits in his last 20 at-bats.
News: Hamilton is not in the lineup for Saturday's matinee against the Cubs, Jamie Ramsey of Better Off Red reports.
Impact: It will mark Hamilton's first day off since Apr. 8 and comes in the midst of an 0-for-12 slump over the last three games. The switch-hitter is hitting just .224 on the season, but does lead the league in steals with seven. Scott Schebler moves over to center field and Scooter Gennett slots in as the right fielder.
News: Reed gave up seven runs on four hits and five walks in just two innings of the Reds' 12-8 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Impact: Reed has moved into the Cubs' injury-depleted rotation, and this was not a good first impression.
News: Suarez went 3 for 5 with a pair of homers in the Reds' 12-8 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Impact: Suarez has been outstanding so far this season, hitting .367 with a .441 on-base percentage.
News: Votto went 3 for 5 with a three-run homer and five RBIs in the Reds' 12-8 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
Impact: Votto is hitting just .239 but he now has six home runs.
