  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Inks one-year deal

    Dunn and the Reds agreed on a one-year, $900,000 contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The right-hander started seven games with Cincinnati in 2022, producing an inflated 6.10 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 21 punchouts over 31 innings. Due to the lack of proven arms on the Reds, Dunn will likely earn a spot in the starting rotation to open 2023.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Sharp in rehab start

    Dunn (shoulder) struck out four over three scoreless innings in his rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Louisville. He allowed no hits and issued two walks in the 46-pitch outing.

    According to, Reds manager David Bell relayed that Dunn said he felt the best he has at any point this season following Tuesday's rehab appearance, suggesting the right-hander is no longer experiencing any discomfort in his right shoulder. Cincinnati has already set its rotation for the remaining six games of the season, so Dunn will work out of the bullpen once activated from the 15-day injured list. Bell said that Dunn is expected to rejoin the Reds in Chicago over the weekend, so he could be activated at some point during the team's series with the Cubs.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Cleared for rehab start

    Dunn (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dunn looked like a potential shutdown candidate when he landed on the 15-day injured list Sept. 15 with right shoulder tightness, but his latest shoulder issue apparently isn't severe as the one that kept him shelved for the first three months of the 2022 campaign. According to Nightengale, Dunn is expected to toss around 50-to-55 pitches Tuesday, with that sort of workload implying that the Reds intend to bring him back as a starter once he's activated from the IL. If all goes well Tuesday, Dunn could be a candidate to take over Chase Anderson's spot in the Cincinnati rotation Sunday in Chicago against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Lands on injured list

    Dunn was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder tightness Thursday, retroactive to Sept. 12.

    Dunn was slated to start Friday's game against the Cardinals, but he's apparently dealing with a shoulder injury that will keep him out until at least late September. The Reds haven't announced who will take Dunn's place in the rotation, but they'll get a boost this weekend since Hunter Greene (shoulder) is on track to return Saturday. While Dunn will be eligible to return Sept. 27, it's possible that the Reds elect to keep him out for the remainder of the season since the team isn't in postseason contention.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Activated Wednesday

    Dunn was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

    He only spent two days on the IL after dealing with an illness. Dunn has a 6.10 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through seven appearances (31 innings), so with Hunter Greene and Graham Ashcraft nearing returns, Dunn could be shifted to a long-relief role before the end of the season. He last pitched Sunday, so he will be available as a starter this weekend in St. Louis.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Goes on COVID-19 IL

    The Reds placed Dunn on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

    Officially, Dunn is on the IL without a designation, but Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer notes that the right-hander dealt with an illness before exiting Sunday's loss to the Brewers after pitching three innings. With that in mind, Dunn's absence is presumably related to a positive COVID-19 test, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the Reds as soon as he clears the necessary protocols. After yielding six runs in the loss to Milwaukee, Dunn now sits on a 6.10 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over 31 innings with Cincinnati on the season.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Hit hard in loss

    Dunn (1-3) took the loss Sunday, allowing six runs on six hits and three walks over three innings in a 7-6 loss against the Brewers. He struck out one.

    The Brewers had little trouble against Dunn on Sunday, as he surrendered three homers on the day, including back-to-back jacks to Willy Adames and Rowdy Tellez in the second inning. Sunday marked Dunn's second straight outing with more walks than strikeouts, displaying yet again his lack of command. He will take a 6.10 ERA into his next start.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Pulled after 4.2 innings Tuesday

    Dunn allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out one in 4.2 innings in a 9-3 loss Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

    Tuesday's start highlighted two of Dunn's weaknesses: control and keeping the ball in the park. The 26-year-old threw just 45 of his 81 pitches for strikes, allowed a solo homer to Ian Happ in the first and a two-run shot to Seiya Suzuki in the fifth. Dunn had been dealing with shoulder tightness since his last start but was cleared to pitch Tuesday. In 28 innings for Cincinnati, he's allowed nine homers and has a 20:14 K:BB. The righty has exceeded five innings in just one of his six starts.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Cleared to pitch Tuesday

    Dunn (shoulder) is listed as the Reds' starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

    Manager David Bell acknowledged that Dunn experienced tightness in his right shoulder coming out of the Reds' 5-1 win over the Cardinals a week ago, but the 26-year-old was apparently able to complete a bullpen session over the weekend without incident. Dunn will be back on the mound Tuesday on six days' rest, looking to build on what's been a promising run of starts as the season winds down. Over his last three starts, Dunn has turned in a 2.40 ERA and 1.07 WHIP while striking out 13 over 15 innings.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Dealing with shoulder tightness

    Dunn experienced shoulder tightness during his start in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Cardinals, but Reds manager David Bell expects the right-hander to make his next turn through the rotation Sept. 6 against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of reports.

    After two straight solid starts, Dunn was on his way to another quality outing Tuesday before he was pulled after four innings, when he began to show a dip in velocity. He was still able to escape the start relatively unscathed, taking a no-decision and striking out four while allowing one run on three hits and no walks. Though it's somewhat concerning that Dunn's shoulder is acting up again after it kept him on the 60-day injured list through the All-Star break, the Reds seemingly have confidence that he'll be ready to go after a few days of rest. His status for the series opener with the Cubs should be solidified based on how his shoulder responds to a throwing session over the weekend.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Lasts four innings in no-decision

    Dunn allowed a run on three hits and a hit batsman while striking out four in four innings of a 5-1 win Tuesday against St. Louis. He did not factor into the decision.

    Dunn was effective Tuesday, allowing a solo shot to Tommy Edman but otherwise navigating the Cardinals' lineup favorably. He was removed after four innings despite having thrown 63 pitches and the bottom third of the lineup due to bat. The 26-year-old had walked at least two batters in each of his previous four starts with Cincinnati and also walked at least two in each of his last six starts for Triple-A Louisville, continuing the trend of spotty command and control we've seen throughout his professional career. Dunn's next start will likely be early next week against the Cubs in Chicago.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: First quality start of 2022

    Dunn (1-2) took the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over six innings against Philadelphia. He struck out five.

    Dunn surrendered a solo home run from outfielder Kyle Schwarber in the third to give the Phillies the game's first run. This was the fourth start of 2022 for the righty, and it was the first time he pitched more than five innings. The 26-year-old has allowed three hits or more and two walks or more in each of his four outings.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Earns first win of season

    Dunn (1-1) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and four walks over five innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out four.

    Dunn surrendered a first-inning double to Tucupita Marcano and a solo home run from second baseman Rodolfo Castro with one out in the fourth. Due to a shoulder injury, the righty has only had two other outings this season, giving up a combined eight runs in 8.1 innings in those games. The 26-year-old's numbers were a bit more serviceable during his previous two seasons with the Mariners, recording a 3.75 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 11 starts in 2021 and a 4.34 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 10 starts in 2020.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Tagged with five runs

    Dunn allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings in Sunday's win over the Cubs. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Dunn served up three home runs in the rough outing, including a two-run shot to Patrick Wisdom in the second inning and another two-run homer in the fourth to Yan Gomes. The 26-year-old righty has given up four home runs through two starts (8.1 innings) at the big-league level this season. His 6.92 ERA with Triple-A Louisville won't inspire much confidence, either. Assuming Dunn gets another turn in the rotation -- mostly due to Cincinnati's injury situation -- he's expected to start in Pittsburgh next weekend.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Will remain in rotation

    The Reds list Dunn as their scheduled starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Cubs at Great American Ball Park.

    After getting a call-up from Triple-A Louisville on Monday, Dunn will wind up with a two-start week while the Reds are short on healthy rotation opens with Hunter Greene (shoulder) and Robert Dugger (shoulder) both going on the injured list in recent days. Dunn was dealt the loss in his Reds debut Monday against the Mets, covering 4.2 innings and striking out two while allowing three earned runs on five hits and two walks.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Stuck with loss in Cincy debut

    Dunn (0-1) took the loss Monday, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings as the Reds fell 5-1 to the Mets. He struck out two.

    The former Mariner didn't pitch poorly in his Reds debut, settling down after a first-inning homer by Starling Marte to last 70 pitches (44 strikes), but he got little help from his offense. Dunn began the season on the 60-day IL due to shoulder trouble and posted a rough 6.92 ERA in seven Triple-A starts prior to his promotion, but he'll likely have a long leash on a patchwork Reds staff that still has double-digit arms on the injured list, including Hunter Greene (shoulder).
