  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Moves to leadoff

    Fairchild batted leadoff and went 1-for-4 in Monday's 7-0 loss to Philadelphia.

    Fairchild hit atop the order for the second time this season. That job normally belongs to Jonathan India, but he's missed the last two games due to an illness. Fairchild is typically in the lineup against left-handers, against whom he has an .890 OPS. Against righties, he's 1-for-18 (.056).

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Steals bag in win

    Fairchild went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-0 win over the White Sox.

    Fairchild stole his fifth base in five attempts in what has been a part-time role to start the season. He should continue to be a lineup regular against left-handers until TJ Friedl (wrist) is ready to play. Friedl recently had a checkup and needs another week to 10 days of being limited to light activity, pushing his return into the first half of May.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Logs fourth steal

    Fairchild started in right field and went 0-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 10-8 win over Milwaukee.

    Fairchild was originally scheduled to start in center field and bat fifth, but he was moved to right field and leadoff following a pregame injury to Jonathan India (leg), the Reds' normal leadoff hitter. The injury to India is not believed to be significant, so the leadoff role may be short-lived. Fairchild is 6-for-19 with three walks and four steals over seven games. He'll continue to see enhanced opportunities while TJ Friedl (wrist) remains idle.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: RBI, steal in comeback win

    Fairchild went 2-for-2 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Mets.

    Pinch hitting for designated hitter Nick Martini, Fairchild singled in a run, then stole second base as part of a double steal. He remained in the game at DH and later had a bunt single and scored on a sacrifice fly as part of the Reds' five-run eighth inning that erased New York's lead. The righty-swinging Fairchild, who is 5-for-13 with three steals through five games, will likely be part of Sunday's starting lineup against southpaw Sean Manaea.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Steals two bases

    Fairchild went 1-for-3 with a run and two stolen bases in Monday's victory over the Phillies.

    Fairchild drew the start Monday against the left-handed Cristopher Sanchez as he's the weak side of a platoon with Jake Fraley currently. The 28-year-old managed to steal 10 bases over 244 plate appearances in 2023, so he is a speed threat whenever he plays. However, playing time could be difficult to come by in the Reds lineup due to the emergence of Will Benson and Nick Martini in the early going.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Starts in center field

    Fairchild started in center field and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 7-6 loss to Washington.

    Fairchild got his first start of the season with a left-hander throwing for the Nationals. With TJ Friedl (wrist) opening the season on the injured list, center field becomes a rotation of Fairchild and Will Benson, who started in center for Thursday's opener against a right-hander.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Starts in center field Monday

    Fairchild started in center field and went 0-for-3 in Monday's spring game against the Giants.

    Fairchild will help fill the void in center field created Saturday when TJ Friedl sustained a fractured wrist. The injury is expected keep him sidelined through the end of April. The right-handed hitting Fairchild and lefty Will Benson will be the primary fill-ins at the position, although it's not yet known if there will be a strict platoon. Benson started in center field Sunday against righty Shane Bieber, while Fairchild got his start against lefty Kyle Harrison. Fairchild has impressed thus far in spring training, batting .360 (9-for-25) with five extra-base hits and six RBI.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Part of center field mix

    Fairchild will share the center field duties with Will Benson while TJ Friedl (wrist) is out, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Fairchild entered spring training having to win a roster spot, but Friedl's injury likely clinches that. Fairchild appeared to be in position to win a spot anyhow.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Launches third spring homer

    Fairchild went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Giants.

    Fairchild continued a strong spring, belting a two-run homer in the fourth inning. It was the third long ball in 19 at-bats for Fairchild. He's not been known for power during his time in the majors; however, the outfielder's hit 10 round-trippers over 331 career MLB at-bats, which roughly translates to a respectable 15 over a season of 500 at-bats. It'll be a challenge for him to see that amount of playing time, as Fairchild is expected to be the Reds' fifth outfielder.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Battling for roster spot

    Fairchild is one of four Reds players battling for a likely last roster spot for Opening Day, along with Jose Barrero, Josh Harrison and Tony Kemp, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    As Rosecrans elaborates, the Reds have significant infield depth, so Fairchild isn't hurt by his OF-only status. Moreover, he has a slight advantage by virtue of hitting right-handed, as TJ Friedl, Jake Fraley and Will Benson are lefty hitters.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Swipes bag in win

    Fairchild entered as a pinch runner, stole a base and scored a run in a 3-2 win over the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He went 0-for-2 as the starting left fielder in the matinee.

    Fairchild was part of Cincinnati's two-run ninth inning during the nightcap, which allowed the Reds to avoid a sweep. He ran for Christian Encarnacion-Strand then stole second base, putting him in position to score the winning run on Noelvi Marte's walkoff single. The steal was the 10th for Fairchild, who recently returned from the concussion list. He'll continue to operate as a depth outfielder.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Draws walk in return

    Fairchild (concussion) went 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Giants.

    Fairchild played six innings in right field in his return from a one-week absence. He was replaced by pinch hitter Nick Martini in the seventh inning in a likely tactical move. It'll likely be a short-side platoon role for Fairchild the rest of the way, with Will Benson and Martini handling right field against right-handed pitchers until Jake Fraley (toe) comes back. Fairchild is slashing just .228/.325/.386 over 237 plate appearances this season, though he's added nine stolen bases and five home runs.
