  • Nick Lodolo To See Specialist On Monday

    Headshot for Nick Lodolo

    Cincinnati Reds left-hander Nick Lodolo (leg) is throwing a side bullpen session in camp on Sunday and will see a specialist for his left tibia to undergo tests on Monday. The outcome of those tests will likely determine whether he can be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season or soon thereafter. A stress reaction in Lodolo's left tibia limited him to just seven starts in 2023, but the 26-year-old southpaw is still feeling something in his leg this spring, prompting the Reds to send him for further testing. Even if the tests come back positive on his leg on Monday, fantasy managers shouldn't expect Lodolo to be in the team's Opening Day starting rotation. Still, given his high strikeout upside, Lodolo is worthy of stashing in deep-mixed leagues for rotation depth as long as his tests don't reveal something really bad.

  • Nick Lodolo To Have His Leg Re-Scanned

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that left-hander Nick Lodolo's (leg) recovery after throwing in camp on Thursday was "not perfect" and that he "still feels it." Lodolo is to be re-evaluated and have his leg "re-scanned," but Bell doesn't consider it a "major concern." If everything comes back OK, Lodolo could still start the 2024 regular season on time, but he would need to get into a Cactus League game by the end of next week. The 26-year-old southpaw missed most of last year due to a stress reaction in his left tibia and still isn't quite over the hump this spring. It's not what fantasy managers that were considering taking him late in drafts for rotation depth wanted to hear, but it doesn't take away from the fact that Lodolo is still a high-upside arm due to his swing-and-miss stuff when he's healthy.

  • Nick Lodolo Throwing Live Batting Practice Thursday

    Cincinnati Reds left-hander Nick Lodolo (leg) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session in camp on Thursday, which could be an important step as he tries to get ready for Opening Day in late March. "If today goes well, he's going to be in good shape. More importantly, if he wakes up tomorrow and feels good. Tomorrow might be a better day to talk about it," manager David Bell said. The 26-year-old southpaw is behind the other pitchers this spring after missing most of 2023 due to a stress reaction in his left tibia, but he's making progress and is worth a late-round flier in mixed fantasy leagues for his strikeout upside. The former seventh overall pick in 2019 out of TCU struggled in his seven starts last year before being shut down, allowing 24 earned runs in 34 1/3 innings, but he did strike out 47 hitters.

  • Graham Ashcraft, Nick Lodolo Nearing Spring Debuts

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Graham Ashcraft (toe) is to be scheduled for his first Cactus League start "within the next week," according to manager David Bell. Meanwhile, left-hander Nick Lodolo's (leg) spring training debut would be a bit behind Ashcraft's. The 26-year-old Ashcraft is returning from surgery on his right big toe last September and is being slow-played in spring training. He has already faced hitters in camp, though, and barring a setback with his toe once he starts pitching in Cactus League games, he should open the 2024 season in the Reds' starting rotation. However, his lack of strikeout upside is a hindrance to his fantasy relevance in mixed leagues. Lodolo, who made only seven starts in 2023 due to a stress reaction in his tibia, has much more fantasy appeal for his high-strikeout upside, but he's also more of an injury risk.

  • Nick Lodolo "Feeling Great"

    Headshot for Nick Lodolo

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said that left-hander Nick Lodolo's (leg) next step at spring training is to throw a live batting practice session. "He's feeling great," Bell said. Lodolo made just seven starts in 2023 due to a stress reaction in his left tibia, which is why the Reds are slow-playing him in spring training. But the 26-year-old is now pain-free and is slowly progressing. Barring a setback, he is expected to be part of the team's starting rotation on Opening Day late in March. Before his injury last year, Lodolo was hurt by the long ball. The former seventh overall pick had a strikeout rate close to 30 percent, though, and there's still a lot to like about him in the long term. However, coming off his lost season, fantasy managers should consider him nothing more than rotation depth in deep-mixed leagues in 2024.

  • Emilio Pagan, Nick Lodolo Throw Bullpens

    Headshot for Nick Lodolo

    Cincinnati Reds pitchers Emilio Pagan (sports hernia surgery) and Nick Lodolo (tibia) are both throwing bullpens as Spring Training gets underway, manager David Bell told the media on Saturday. Pagan pitched great as a Minnesota Twin last year, posting a 3.27 FIP, 8.44 K/9, 2.73 BB/9, and 0.65 HR/9. He was also a source of reliability in the Twins' bullpen, tossing 69.1 innings over 66 games, which was just one appearance shy of his career high. Bell did note that Pagan won't be ready for the Reds' opening Spring Training games, but it sounds like he continues to trend in the direction with 26-man roster decisions still more than one month away. Lodolo is also making significant progress, with Bell noting that his bullpen session on Saturday "will shape [the] next steps" in his rehab process. The former first-round pick managed to make just seven starts amidst injuries last year, posting a 5.79 FIP but maintaining a promising 12.32 K/9 and 2.62 BB/9. Assuming he doesn't face any setbacks over the next couple of weeks, Lodolo figures to be ready for Opening Day, too.
