Reds' Jake Fraley: Starting Monday
Fraley (leg) will start in right field and bat fifth in Monday's Cactus League game against the Angels.
Fraley left early in Sunday's game against the Brewers after fouling a ball off his leg, but his entry into the Reds' spring lineup one day later implies that his removal was likely precautionary. The 27-year-old has turned in a monstrous .986 OPS to go with four stolen bases through 13 games this spring and should be in strong position to enter the regular season with a strong-side platoon role either in the corner outfield or at designated hitter....

Reds' Jake Fraley: Expected to be fine
Manager David Bell said Sunday that Fraley (leg) should be fine after exiting Sunday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fraley was removed from Sunday's matchup in the fourth inning after fouling a pitch off his leg, but the ball missed his knee. It's possible the Reds exercise caution since Opening Day is a week and a half away, but it seems unlikely that Fraley's regular-season availability is in jeopardy.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Fraley: Exits game Sunday
Fraley fouled a pitch off his leg and exited Sunday's spring game against the Brewers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fraley fouled the pitch off his leg during the fourth inning and was unable to finish the plate appearance. The specifics of the issue are unclear, and the 27-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Fraley: Homers against lefty
Fraley homered against Rangers lefty Cole Ragans in Saturday's spring training game, and he's hitting .375/.464/.667 in 28 Cactus League plate appearances. Fraley also drew compliments from manager David Bell regarding his baserunning and defense, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fraley has been batting third in the order in his most recent spring training starts against right-handed pitchers, perhaps indicating his likely regular season spot. The homer against a lefty on Saturday is noteworthy -- he hit just .143/.226/.250 against them last season and rarely saw action when a southpaw was on the mound.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Fraley: Recaptures playing time
Fraley will start in left field and bat cleanup in Monday's game against the Cubs.
Though Aristides Aquino is in the lineup as the Reds' right fielder, Fraley appears to have unseated him as Cincinnati's preferred option at the position heading into the final week of the season. Stuart Fairchild will head to the bench Monday to clear a spot for Aquino, who had sat out against each of the last three right-handed pitchers that the Reds faced. Fraley, meanwhile, started in four of the past five games while going 6-for-15 with a pair of solo home runs, two walks and a stolen base.... See More ... See Less

Fraley went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Cubs.
Fraley tallied three of the Reds' four hits Friday and accounted for the team's only run with a second-inning home run. Since returning from the injured list in July, the 27-year-old outfielder is hitting .297 with 11 homers and 25 RBI through 48 games. He's now gone deep in back-to-back games after a 12-game homerless drought.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Jake Fraley: Steals fourth base
Fraley went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in a 4-1 loss Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
Fraley singled and stole second base in the fifth inning. He has four stolen bases in five attempts with three of those stolen bases coming since Aug. 21. Tuesday was his first start since Thursday, as the Reds went with other options over the last four games. The 27-year-old has performed well since returning from the injured list at the end of July, posting a .287/.370/.513 line in 173 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Fraley: Fades into reserve role
Fraley is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.
The lefty-hitting Fraley is on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Roansy Contreras) for the third straight game and appears to have moved into a full-time bench role. Stuart Fairchild looks to have taken over as the Reds' new primary center fielder at the expense of Fraley, who has posted a .564 OPS and 30.6 percent strikeout rate over his past nine games....
