Is Votto baseball's best contact hitter?

He's clearly baseball's most disciplined hitter, but is Joey Votto also the best when it comes to making hard contact? As for speed, Reds teammate Billy Hamilton is the clear No. 1 in that department, Keith Law writes. Best hitting/speed tools in MLB (Insider)

Reds' best pitcher is ... Tyler Holt?

At least that was the case on Monday. Called on to pitch the ninth with the Dodgers up 18-8 at the time, Holt, usually an outfielder, became the first Reds pitcher in the game to enjoy a scoreless outing.

Baseball is awesome. The Dodgers score 18 runs off the Reds' actual pitchers, then go 1-2-3 against OF Tyler Holt. Of course they did!

Duvall has skill with the glove, too

In addition to breaking out in the power department this season, Adam Duvall has been a revelation in left field. With 14 runs saved, Duvall ranks second at the position behind only Starling Marte, who won a Gold Glove last year. Breakout defenders (Insider)

Finnegan in rare form vs. Dodgers

Brandon Finnegan pitched seven shutout innings of one-hit ball against L.A. on Saturday. The last Reds pitcher younger than Finnegan (23 years, 128 days old as of Saturday) to throw at least seven scoreless innings in a game while allowing no more than one hit was Don Gullett on Oct. 1, 1972, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Lorenzen's homer a rarity for a reliever

Michael Lorenzen hit a three-run blast in the Reds' win over the Dodgers. Lorenzen was only the second reliever to hit a three-run home run or grand slam this century after Mark Worrell accomplished the feat for the Cardinals in 2008, notes the Elias Sports Bureau.

Reds going with unconventional bullpen

Reds manager Bryan Price indicated that he'll mix-and-match in the closer role and use certain relievers for multiple innings the remainder of the season. "We're also trying to get away from getting too cliché with the bullpen and saying we're going to limit guys to an inning and get specialized," Price said. Cincinnati.com
