  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Retreats to bench Wednesday

    Stephenson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Stephenson will give way to Luke Maile behind the plate after catching in both of the first two games of the series with Milwaukee. Through 10 games this season, Stephenson is hitting a respectable .259 but has yet to provide a home run and has been limited to three RBI and three runs.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: On bench Monday

    Stephenson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.

    Stephenson and Luke Maile have now made two starts apiece at catcher through the Reds' first two games, but the former still appears to be viewed as the team's No. 1 option behind the dish.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Out of lineup Saturday

    Stephenson isn't in the Reds' lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

    Stephenson went 1-for-4 with an RBI to begin the season Thursday, and he'll take a seat Saturday to give Luke Maile his first start of the year. The 27-year-old Stephenson still projects to start behind the dish most days for the Reds in 2024.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Preparing as primary backstop

    Stephenson is preparing to be the Reds' primary catcher in 2024, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    That's essentially what Stephenson was in 2023, but a series of injuries in 2022 limited him to 50 games that season and had a cascading effect the following year. The most serious injury was to his collarbone, which may have contributed to Stephenson losing 150 points of OPS. The injuries also caused lost time behind the plate that he could have used to gain game-calling experience. That lost experience led to more starts during the Reds' postseason push for Luke Maile in 2023. The plan for 2024 is different than last spring, when manager David Bell tried creating a rotation of three catchers that had Stephenson working as a designated hitter -- he started 42 games at DH. The trick for the 27-year-old Stephenson is to maintain a middle-of-the-order bat while improving behind the plate and working with pitchers.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Avoids arbitration

    Stephenson agreed to a one-year, $2.525 million deal with the Reds on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Stephenson avoided concussions in 2023 en route to a career-high 517 plate appearances -- the first time he's topped 402 plate appearances in a season. He slashed .243/.317/.378 with 13 home runs in 142 games, but given the Reds' improved depth, he will likely see significantly fewer starts at designated hitter (43 games in 2023) in 2024.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Blasts 13th homer

    Stephenson went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run in Friday's 19-2 win over St. Louis.

    Stephenson's 13th home run of the season was the Reds' third of the fourth inning and sixth and final long ball of the night, leaving the team one shy of matching a single-game franchise record. Though the Reds are one of the few teams in baseball still competing for a playoff spot in the final series of the regular season, Stephenson isn't necessarily a lock to start behind the dish Saturday and Sunday. He and Luke Maile have been splitting work at catcher of late, with the latter starting four games to Stephenson's three over the past seven contests.

  • Reds' Tyler Stephenson: Goes deep Saturday

    Stephenson went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk and three total RBI in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

    Stephenson was part of an early offensive outburst by the Reds, hitting a solo homer in the first inning and adding a two-run double in the second. He had been struggling coming into the contest, going 4-for-34 over his previous 10 contests. Despite the recent struggles, Stephenson has recorded career-best marks with 12 homers and 53 RBI over 137 games this season.
