  • TJ Friedl Needs More Time Before Ramping Up

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds center fielder TJ Friedl (wrist) underwent an MRI on Thursday and was determined to need another seven-to-ten days of lighter activity before ramping up his rehab process. The hope was that Friedl's injury would be a little more cleared up at this point and the delay is a bit of a setback for the 28-year-old. The lefty had a solid year in 2023, slashing .279/.352/.467, and was looking to catapult a young Reds roster into playoff contention before injuring his wrist a month ago in spring training. Will Benson has taken over center field responsibilities in Friedl's absence, hitting .213 with 2 HR on the short season. Friedl should be expected to take over as the starter once he returns, but without a clear timetable for him to come back fantasy managers in deeper leagues may want to keep Benson on their radar.

  • TJ Friedl Will Be Re-Evaluated This Week

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said on Tuesday that outfielder TJ Friedl (wrist) has a check-in MRI this week. Friedl fractured his right wrist on March 16 during a spring training game and was expected to miss six to eight weeks, but he was able to avoid the 60-day injured list to begin the season. The 28-year-old center fielder should be able to rejoin the Reds in early May if all goes well in his recovery, and his progress is something to monitor for those opting not to stash him. Friedl broke out for Cincy last year, slashing a prolific .279/.352/.467 with 18 home runs, 66 RBI, 73 runs scored, and 27 stolen bases across 556 plate appearances. Will Benson is handling the majority of the reps in center for the time being, slashing .209/.277/.512 with eight extra-base hits, four RBI, and two stolen bags over 43 at-bats and carries a decent combination of power and speed for fantasy managers in NL-only and deep mixed leagues.

  • TJ Friedl Hits 10-Day Injured List

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    The Cincinnati Reds placed outfielder TJ Friedl (wrist) on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. While the move is a procedural measure, it's worth noting that Friedl avoided the 60-day IL in the face of a recovery timetable of six to eight weeks due to his fractured wrist. The Reds must believe the 28-year-old center fielder has a chance to return before the end of May, meaning fantasy managers shouldn't forget about him if choosing to leave Friedl on waiver wires instead of stashing him to start the year in shallow leagues. Friedl flourished during his first full year in the major leagues, slashing a potent .279/.352/.467 with 18 home runs, 66 RBI, 73 runs scored, and 27 stolen bases across 556 plate appearances. Will Benson is a name to watch during the early stages of the 2024 campaign after hitting .275 with an .863 OPS, 11 homers, and 19 swipes over 287 at-bats for Cincy a year ago.

  • TJ Friedl Could Avoid 60-Day Injured List

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder TJ Friedl (wrist) can return from his broken wrist ahead of the two months he'd have to miss if he were on the 60-day injured list. The 28-year-old will start the season on the injured list after fracturing his wrist while diving for a ball in last Saturday's spring game against the Mariners. He is Cincinnati's starting centerfielder after slashing .279/.352/.467 with 18 home runs, 66 RBI, 73 runs, and 27 stolen bases over 556 plate appearances in 2023. Barring a setback, Friedl will likely make his season debut in May. The Reds are deciding on the final roster spot between Bubba Thompson and Jacob Hurtubise. Neither Thompson nor Hurtubise hold any fantasy value. Jacob Fraley and Will Benson should also see an uptick in at-bats with Friedl sidelined.

  • TJ Friedl Out At Least 3-4 Weeks With Fractured Wrist

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder TJ Friedl (wrist) will be re-assessed in three to four weeks after fracturing his wrist while diving for a ball on Saturday. Friedl will need some time off to allow the bone to heal, and then the team will see where he's at. At minimum, he will miss most of the season's opening month. While this is tough news for Friedl and his fantasy owners, his injury does help clear up a muddy outfield picture in Cincy. Both Will Benson and Jake Fraley should benefit and can be considered sleepers in fantasy drafts now.

  • TJ Friedl Sprains Wrist In Saturday's Game

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds' outfielder TJ Friedl (wrist) suffered a sprained wrist in the second inning of Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The injury happened as the 28-year-old dove for a ball and appeared to roll up on his wrist. There is no current timeline for Friedl's recovery, which jeopardizes his status for Opening Day. Though Friedl had not performed well in spring training, hitting .185 over 12 games. The 28-year-old is still expected to be a productive member of the Reds in 2024. ATC projects Friedl with a .255/.330/.418 projected slash line, 15 HR, and 58 RBI. Fantasy managers should not know that Friedl's current ADP of 165 could likely be affected if he is expected to miss any significant amount of time.

    The Reds almost made the playoffs last year as they promoted several exciting prospects and seemed to firmly end their rebuilding period.

  • TJ Friedl Collects Three Hits, Off To A Solid Start This Spring

    Headshot for TJ Friedl

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder TJ Friedl went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's 7-3 spring loss to the Kansas City Royals. He doubled twice and increased his spring batting average to .333 after the three-hit performance. The 28-year-old is slashing .333/.429/.500 with two runs scored over five games. He will hit leadoff against right-handers, where he posted a .336 on-base percentage against them in 2023. Overall, Friedl slashed .279/.352/.467 with 18 home runs, 66 RBI, 73 runs, and 27 stolen bases over 556 plate appearances. While he finished with solid overall numbers last season, his 3.2% barrel percentage was in the seventh percentile, while his 27.6% hard-hit percentage was in the fifth percentile. Despite ranking in the bottom in hard-hit percentage, Friedl should lead off most games in a loaded Reds lineup and is a solid pick at his current NFBC ADP of 151.
