Reds' Jake Fraley: Avoids arbitration at $2.15 million
The Reds and Fraley avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.15 million contract Thursday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
It's Fraley's first year of arbitration eligibility and he'll get a nice raise after posting a .783 OPS with 15 homers and 21 steals over 111 games for Cincinnati in 2023. The 28-year-old remains injury prone and can't hit lefties, but he should be an asset again for the Reds against righties this season. Fraley had toe surgery in October but is expected to be ready to roll for spring training.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Jake Fraley: On bench against lefty
Fraley will sit against lefty Bailey Falter and the Pirates on Saturday.
Fraley made just four starts against southpaws in the first half and has made none since the break. Given that he's a lifetime .149/.266/.216 hitter in 148 career plate appearances against lefties, he's unlikely to advance beyond a platoon role any time soon. Christian Encarnacion-Strand will get the start at designated hitter in Fraley's absence.... See More ... See Less

Reds' Jake Fraley: Not in Sunday's lineup
Fraley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
The 28-year-old started in two of three games since being activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, and he's gone 5-for-9 with three doubles and a run. Fraley will eventually require surgery to address the stress fracture in his fourth toe that sidelined him for most of August, and he may receive a few more off days than usual down the stretch as he plays through the injury.

Reds' Jake Fraley: Appears in both games Friday
Fraley served as the designated hitter and went 3-for-4 with a run scored in a 3-2 win over the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in the matinee.
Fraley was activated off the injured list where he'd been rehabbing a fractured toe that will eventually require surgery. Per usual, he was in the lineup against a right-hander but was on the bench in the opener against a lefty. The Reds have a healthy supply of outfielders, so they can let Fraley operate as a DH only to minimize impact on the toe.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Fraley: Makes return from IL
Fraley (toe) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fraley is eventually going to require surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left fourth toe, but he will delay it until the offseason as he tries to help the Reds' playoff push. He will mostly be limited to designated hitter duty for now, per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer, as Fraley doesn't feel pain while hitting but does in the field. The 28-year-old is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader versus the Cubs but will likely be in there for the nightcap.... See More ... See Less
