Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Moves to IL
The Reds placed Gutierrez (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
The move is simply a procedural one to clear a 40-man roster spot, as Gutierrez underwent Tommy John surgery last July and will miss most, if not all, of 2023. If he does return, it would likely be for just a couple of appearances in September.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Gutierrez (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez officially underwent surgery to correct the first-degree UCL strain he suffered in June and will now set his sights on potentially returning late next season. The right-hander will finish his 2022 campaign with a 7.61 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 29 strikeouts over 36.2 innings in 10 appearances, including eight starts.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Tommy John surgery on tap
Gutierrez (elbow) is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery later this month, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez, the Reds and the team's medical staff made the collective decision to have the right-hander go under the knife after he suffered a setback with his strained elbow during a live batting practice session Tuesday. Based on the timing of his upcoming surgery, Gutierrez will miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign and likely the majority of the 2023 season while recovering from the procedure. He'll become the third Reds pitcher to require Tommy John in the last calendar year, joining Tejay Antone and Justin Wilson.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Tosses live bullpen session
Gutierrez (elbow) completed a live batting practice session Tuesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Before he was placed on the 15-day injured list just over a month ago with a first-degree right elbow strain, Gutierrez had been working out of the bullpen. The Reds aren't yet decided on what kind of role Gutierrez will handle once he's back to full strength, as the team will have him build up to three innings in his throwing progression before determining whether he'll return from the IL as a reliever or starter. Since he still has yet to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment, Gutierrez isn't on track to return until after the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Headed to 60-day IL
Reds manager David Bell said Gutierrez (elbow) suffered a setback during the final pitch of his live batting practice session Tuesday and will be transferred from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The transaction will open up a spot on the 40-man roster, which the Reds will likely use when they presumably call up another pitcher from the minors for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Pirates. As a result of the move, Gutierrez won't be eligible for activation until the first week of August, though it's unclear if he'll be ready to go by then.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Slated to throw live BP
Gutierrez (elbow) will throw live batting practice Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez progressed to mound work last week, and he's now been cleared to face live hitters. After being shut down with a first-degree UCL strain in his right elbow earlier in June, the 26-year-old has recently made encouraging progress in his recovery.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Nearing bullpen session
Gutierrez (elbow) will throw a bullpen session this week, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez was shut down for two weeks in early June after being diagnosed with a first-degree UCL strain in his right elbow. That time period has now expired, and it looks like he's ready for the next step, more or less on schedule.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Avoids worst-case outcome
Gutierrez will be shut down for two weeks with a first-degree UCL strain but has avoided a more serious injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez hit the injured list Sunday with what was originally called right forearm soreness. Any time a UCL is involved, things seldom look particularly good, but it at least seems as though Tommy John surgery is off the table at this time. Given that he won't be throwing for two weeks, however, it will be quite a while before he's back in action at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Out with forearm soreness
Gutierrez was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right forearm soreness.
The news comes after Gutierrez had moved back into a bullpen role earlier this week, so there isn't much fantasy fallout. Jared Solomon was recalled from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Nabs first win
Gutierrez (1-6) earned the win Saturday versus the Giants. He allowed a run on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts in five innings.
The only run against Gutierrez came on a Joc Pederson double in the third inning. It's been a brutal start to the season for Gutierrez, who had given up multiple runs in each of his first seven starts without completing five innings in any of them prior to Saturday's step in the right direction. He owns an ugly 7.71 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 28:22 K:BB across 35 innings this year. The 26-year-old projects to make his next start versus the lowly Nationals next week.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Handed another loss
Gutierrez (0-6) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Cubs.
Gutierrez took the mound for the first time since May 11 and tossed three scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fourth. He gave up an RBI double to Ian Happ followed by Patrick Wisdom's two-run blast. Gutierrez is now 0-6 with an ugly 8.70 ERA through seven starts this season. He was removed from the rotation earlier this month but never made an appearance out of the bullpen. The 26-year-old is currently lined up to face the Giants at home this weekend but it's unclear if he'll get another start.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Set to start Monday
Gutierrez is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez hasn't made an appearance since being shifted to the bullpen May 13, but he'll rejoin the rotation, at least for one start, for Monday's series opener versus Chicago. The 26-year-old has a 8.65 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 19:19 K:BB across 26 innings (six starts) this season.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Moving to bullpen
Gutierrez will shift to a bullpen role, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez's first six appearances of the season came as a starter, but he posted an 8.65 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in 26 innings while posting an 0-5 record. The right-hander will presumably serve as a middle reliever out of the bullpen, while Connor Overton will remain in the rotation. Gutierrez will be an option to serve as a spot starter at some point if needed.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Still looking for first win
Gutierrez didn't factor in the decision during Wednesday's 14-11 win over the Brewers after giving up four runs on six hits over 4.2 innings. He had six strikeouts and two walks.
The 26-year-old was staked to a 7-0 lead of the first two innings but was unable to last the necessary five frames in order to qualify for his first win of the year. The no-decision was still progress for Gutierrez, as he took the loss in each of his previous five starts. The right-hander has an 8.65 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 19:15 K:BB across 26 innings and lines up to pitch during the two-game set in Cleveland next week.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Torched by Brewers
Gutierrez (0-5) took the loss in Wednesday's 18-4 defeat at the hands of the Brewers, surrendering seven runs on eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4.1 innings.
Gutierrez got shelled in this one, giving up two homers, including a Rowdy Tellez grand slam in the bottom of the third inning. He has now allowed 13 runs over his last two starts, helping lead to an inflated 8.86 ERA and 2.02 WHIP with 13 strikeouts over 21.1 innings in five starts. Given his struggles thus far, the Reds may well explore other starting options before Gutierrez's next turn comes up.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Misses out on two-start week
Gutierrez is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Brewers in Milwaukee, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez was initially lined up to start the series opener in Milwaukee on Tuesday, but an off day Monday allowed the Reds to reorder their pitching schedule. As a result, Tyler Mahle will move to the front of the order and start Tuesday, setting him up to make a second turn Sunday against Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Gutierrez will be limited to the one start Wednesday for this week, making him an unpalatable fantasy option in the majority of leagues.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Struggles over four
Gutierrez (0-4) got the loss Wednesday after he pitched four innings, giving up six runs on five hits and six walks while striking out two against the Padres.
Gutierrez struggled to command the strike zone in this one, throwing 46 of his 88 pitches for strikes while walking a season-high six batters. The 26-year-old made it through the first inning unscathed but surrendered a run in the second inning on a Luis Campusano sacrifice fly. The wheels fell off in the third frame where he gave up another four runs, topped off by a three-run homer by Jurickson Profar. The sixth and final run against him came after he had exited the contest in the top of the fifth. Gutierrez's season numbers now sit at a 7.41 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 17.0 innings.... See More ...

Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Walks four in loss
Gutierrez (0-3) allowed three earned runs on two hits and four walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Padres.
Gutierrez worked three scoreless innings to begin the start, but he surrendered a two-run home run in the fourth inning. That accounted for the majority of the damage against him, though he also allowed a third run in the fifth frame on an RBI double by Trent Grisham. Gutierrez was particularly wild Wednesday, as he hit two batters in addition to the four free passes he surrendered. Through 13 innings this season, Gutierrez has a 5.54 ERA, and his 9:9 K:BB is among the indicators that his lack of success is largely of his own doing.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Takes second loss
Gutierrez (0-2) took the loss in Friday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in four innings.
After a clean first inning, Gutierrez surrendered one run apiece in the second, third and fifth innings to fall in line for the loss. That's now consecutive losses for the 26-year-old, who has gone fewer than five innings and thrown under 80 pitches in each start. He's tentatively lined up to face off against the Padres on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
