  • Reds' Will Benson: Goes deep Saturday

    Benson started in left field and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's spring game against Cleveland. While there will be competition for outfield spots this season, Benson appears to have an inside track. That's a marked difference from last spring when he had to play his way onto the roster. The lefty batter then went 1-for-20 with 12 strikeouts over his first eight games and was back in the minors by mid-April. He returned to the majors a month later, and Benson batted .292 with 11 homers, 31 RBI and a .915 OPS over his final 100 games. He told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com the end result from last season gave him more confidence entering 2024. Benson is part of the outfield mix that includes Jake Fraley, TJ Friedl and Spencer Steer.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Has three-hit day in win

    Benson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

The 25-year-old has put together a nice season during his first year in Cincinnati, slashing .273/.369/.502 with 10 homers, 27 RBI, 45 runs and a 37:89 BB:K in 287 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Nursing back stiffness

    Benson is not in the Reds' lineup Wednesday due to back stiffness, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. It explains why he's not playing for a second straight day and this time against a right-hander. Benson is expected to be fine, so there would seem to be a good chance he's ready to roll for the weekend series in Pittsburgh following Thursday's off day.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Gets Sunday off

    Benson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Benson will take a seat for the first time since July 9, breaking a streak of nine consecutive starts.

Since June 1, Benson owns a 179 wRC+, placing him sixth among all hitters in the majors with at least 100 plate appearances during that time.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Involved in win

    Benson went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 5-1 win over San Francisco. The outfielder drew a walk ahead of Luke Maile's two-run home run in the third frame, then doubled in a run and scored an inning later. Benson's sixth-inning stolen base did not impact the game, but it was his ninth of the season and fifth in the last 17 games. He has been productive in the last three contests, going 4-for-10 with two doubles, two home runs and six RBI.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Sitting out against lefty

    Benson isn't in the Reds' lineup Saturday against Atlanta. Southpaw Jared Shuster will start on the mound Saturday for Atlanta, meaning the left-handed bat of Benson will remain in the dugout. Benson -- along with many other Reds players -- is swinging a hot bat currently, so it's still possible he comes off the bench for a pinch-hit opportunity once Atlanta turns to its bullpen.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Homers, scores twice in win

    Benson went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies. Benson provided the Reds with some insurance, sending a solo blast to center to make it an 8-2 ballgame in the sixth. The 25-year-old continues to improve at the plate. In his first stint with the Reds this year, he hit .040 with a .117 OPS and a 1:14 BB:K in 10 games. Since returning to the majors May 26, Benson is slashing .373/.492/.588 with two homers, five RBI, 12 runs, four steals and an eye-popping 12:7 BB:K in 63 plate appearances. He's been a massive part of the Reds' recent surge but has essentially been restricted to hitting against righties only, as he has just five plate appearances against lefties all year.

  • Reds' Will Benson: Reaches safely five times in win

    Benson went 3-for-3 with two walks, one triple, two RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Astros. Benson notched his third three-hit effort and second multi-walk game of the season. He's slashing .264/.354/.375 with one home run and four RBI across 27 games, and the athletic prospect continues to see regular playing time with Wil Myers (shoulder) and Jake Fraley (wrist) on the injured list and Stuart Fairchild battling neck stiffness. However, Fraley and Myers could be returning soon, so despite his prolific outing Saturday, Benson may be soon headed back to Triple-A.
