  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Forgettable outing Saturday

    Ashcraft (3-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing 10 runs on nine hits and four walks over four innings in a 10-8 loss against the Brewers. He struck out two.

    Ashcraft allowed a season-high 10 earned runs, marking the fourth time over his past six outings that he's given up at least seven. He's also surrendered eight home runs during that span. It's certainly been a disappointing stretch for the right-hander, who posted a 2.00 ERA and 1.17 over his first six starts (36 innings), but he's not in danger of being demoted anytime soon, especially while the Reds deal with a couple injuries in their rotation. However, things don't get any easier for Ashcraft, who's scheduled to pitch next during the finale of a three-game set versus the Dodgers.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Back in win column versus Cubs

    Ashcraft (3-3) earned the win over the Cubs on Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings.

    Ashcraft picked up his first win since April 15 after needing 92 pitches to grind through five innings while receiving plenty of run support from his teammates. His only troublesome inning was the second. He issued a walk and allowed a base hit before surrendering a three-run blast to Patrick Wisdom to put the Cubs ahead 3-2. It wasn't a dominant outing by any means, but it was a step in the right direction for Ashcraft. He racked up six strikeouts for the first time since April 10, allowed less than six hits for the first time since April 26 and gave up just three runs after being pummeled for 14 runs over his last 10 innings. The 25-year-old now sits at a 5.55 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 47:24 K:BB over 58.1 innings and lines up to face the Brewers next weekend.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Collapses against Cards

    Ashcraft (2-3) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs on 10 hits over five innings as the Reds fell 8-5 to the Cardinals. He struck out five.

    The second-year right-hander was taken deep twice by Paul Goldschmidt as part of the St. Louis barrage. Ashcraft has been tagged for at least seven runs in three of his last four starts, serving up five homers in 17.1 innings over that stretch and sending his ERA soaring from 2.00 to 5.57 during his disastrous May. He'll try to regain his footing in his next outing, likely to come on the road this weekend against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Strikes out three in no-decision

    Ashcraft did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings during a 7-4 win over the Marlins. He struck out three.

    Ashcraft tossed three scoreless innings to start the game but allowed at least one run in each of his final three frames and was pulled in the sixth after allowing back-to-back two-out hits, including a solo home run to Peyton Burdick. It was a solid bounce-back outing for Ashcraft, who gave up eight runs in his previous start and was forced to leave the game in the second inning after being struck in the leg by a comebacker. Despite the terrible performance versus the White Sox, Ashcraft still boasts modest numbers (3.95 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 33:20 K:BB) across his first eight starts (43.1 innings).

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Ready to make start Friday

    Ashcraft (leg) is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Marlins in Miami, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Ashcraft's most recent start Sunday against the White Sox came to an end in the second inning when he was struck in the leg by a comebacker, but he didn't suffer any sort of injury that will cause him to miss a turn through the rotation. The second-year righty had maintained a tidy 2.00 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through his first six starts of the season before he recorded just five outs against the White Sox while allowing eight earned runs on six hits and two walks.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Exits after being hit by comebacker

    Ashcraft was removed during the second inning of Sunday's game against the White Sox after being struck in the leg by a comebacker, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was headed for an early exit regardless of the injury, as he ended up being charged with eight runs while he recorded just five outs. It was Ashcraft's worst start of the year by a wide margin, as he had given up just eight runs combined in his first six outings. The 25-year-old's status will likely be updated following Sunday's contest, but for now he should be considered day-to-day.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Sharp in no-decision

    Ashcraft allowed a run on six hits and a walk while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Tuesday.

    In his first start after a stint on the bereavement list, Ashcraft turned in a positive outing. It was his fifth quality start through six appearances this season. The 25-year-old was also able to limit an opponent to one walk for just the second time this year. He's pitched to a 2.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 27:16 K:BB through 36 innings. Ashcraft still needs to display stronger control, but he's been effective so far. His next start is projected to be at home versus the Mets next week.

    Ashcraft allowed two runs on three hits and four walks over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Rangers. He struck out three.

While an 11.3% walk rate and .235 BABIP against would indicate that Ashcraft is due for some regression, he's been able to limit hard contact thus far. He's tentatively lined up to face the Padres on the road in his next outing.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Settles for no-decision Friday
