After the Cincinnati Reds fell out of contention in late August, many fans wanted to see what the team’s September call-ups could do. However, the call-ups have had very few chances to show what they can do early in the final month.

The way that it works in baseball is that managers are supposed to run out their starters against playoff contenders out of respect to the game. Given that the Reds’ September schedule has been loaded with games against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, manager Bryan Price hasn’t had many chances to put his call-ups into games.

Cincinnati called up a fairly large group of players when rosters expanded, but the pitchers are about the only ones who have gotten a chance to play on a somewhat consistent basis.

Although it has been a small sample size, there have been a few things that fans have learned about the team’s call-ups.
