  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Returns to action

    Fairchild entered Tuesday's game in the ninth inning as the left fielder and went 0-for-1 in a 7-0 loss to Minnesota.

    Fairchild made his first appearance since coming off the COVID-19-related injured list. Given the large deficit, Reds manager David Bell inserted several bench players during the latter innings, one of which was Fairchild who got himself acclimated to game conditions in a low-pressure setting.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Back from COVID-19 IL

    Fairchild (illness) was activated from the COVID-19-related injured list Monday.

    Fairchild was away from the Reds for a little over a week but is ready to roll now following a short rehab assignment. With Hunter Renfroe designated for assignment and Harrison Bader (groin) on the 10-day injured list, Fairchild should see regular playing time versus left-handed pitching down the stretch.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: On rehab assignment

    Fairchild (COVID-19) has begun a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Fairchild landed on the COVID-19 injured list last weekend but is now feeling well enough to ramp things back up. He's eligible to return Saturday, but the Reds might wait until early next week when they return home to activate him.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    The Reds placed Fairchild on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

    The Reds' COVID-19 outbreak has primarily affected the team's pitchers up to this point, but now Fairchild will miss time as he fights off infection. Alejo Lopez was brought up from Triple-A Louisville as a replacement player for Fairchild.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Swipes bag in win

    Fairchild entered as a pinch runner, stole a base and scored a run in a 3-2 win over the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He went 0-for-2 as the starting left fielder in the matinee.

    Fairchild was part of Cincinnati's two-run ninth inning during the nightcap, which allowed the Reds to avoid a sweep. He ran for Christian Encarnacion-Strand then stole second base, putting him in position to score the winning run on Noelvi Marte's walkoff single. The steal was the 10th for Fairchild, who recently returned from the concussion list. He'll continue to operate as a depth outfielder.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Starting in return

    Fairchild (concussion) was activated from the 7-day injured list and is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Fairchild spent the past week on the concussion list after a collision with the outfield wall, but he is ready to return and will immediately claim a spot in the starting nine. He will start in right field and hit seventh for the Reds on Monday night.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Takes seat Tuesday

    Fairchild is not in the lineup Tuesday at San Francisco.

    Fairchild just returned Monday from a 7-day stint on the concussion injured list and will likely continue to be eased back into action. Will Benson, TJ Friedl and Nick Senzel are starting across the outfield for the Reds on Tuesday against the Giants.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Draws walk in return

    Fairchild (concussion) went 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Giants.

    Fairchild played six innings in right field in his return from a one-week absence. He was replaced by pinch hitter Nick Martini in the seventh inning in a likely tactical move. It'll likely be a short-side platoon role for Fairchild the rest of the way, with Will Benson and Martini handling right field against right-handed pitchers until Jake Fraley (toe) comes back. Fairchild is slashing just .228/.325/.386 over 237 plate appearances this season, though he's added nine stolen bases and five home runs.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Begins rehab assignment

    Fairchild (concussion) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

    A collision with the outfield wall Sunday against Toronto forced Fairchild onto the 7-day concussion IL on Monday. He'll play a couple of games in Triple-A before likely returning from the injured list when eligible Monday.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Lands on concussion list

    Fairchild was placed on the 7-day concussion list Monday, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Fairchild entered concussion protocol after banging into the outfield wall during Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays, and after further evaluation, he's been moved to the concussion list. The Reds will promote Mike Siani from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Enters concussion protocol

    Fairchild was removed in the top of the third inning of Sunday's game against the Blue Jays and entered the concussion protocol, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He grounded out in his lone at-bat before exiting the contest.

    Fairchild collided with the outfield wall in the top of the second while attempting to rob a home run, and though he stayed in the game until the Reds recorded the final out of the frame, he was replaced in the field by TJ Hopkins in the next inning. Since he's still being checked out for a concussion at this stage and hasn't been diagnosed with a brain injury, Fairchild may not immediately land on the 7-day injured list until the Reds complete their evaluation. The 27-year-old has been handling a near-everyday role in the outfield of late since Jake Fraley (toe) landed on the injured list earlier this month.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Goes yard in win

    Fairchild went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Guardians.

    Fairchild's two-run shot in the fourth inning turned out to be the game-winning hit for the Reds, who stumbled through the first half of the month with an inconsistent offense that's missing Jake Fraley (toe) and Jonathan India (foot). Those two injuries have led to a spike in Fairchild's playing time during this most recent stint in the majors. His window could close soon, pending the results of Fraley's upcoming MRI (Friday) to determine the progress of his stress fracture.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Becoming fixture in lineup

    Fairchild will start in center field and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Guardians.

    Fairchild has largely served as a short-side platoon bat during his multiple stints with the big club this season, but he seems to have moved into more of a full-time role in August while the Reds have been down Jake Fraley (toe) and Jonathan India (foot). He'll be included in the lineup for the seventh time in eight games, replacing the lefty-hitting TJ Friedl in center field while southpaw Logan Allen takes the hill for Cleveland. Fairchild should occupy a corner-outfield spot when the Reds oppose right-handed pitching.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Triples, scores in loss

    Fairchild started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a triple and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Miami.

    To those watching the game, it looked like Fairchild had hit an inside-the-park home run -- he donned the celebratory Viking helmet in the dugout -- but the play was officially ruled a triple with a throwing error that allowed him to score. This was his sixth start in nine games since being recalled from Triple-A Louisville, and the outfielder is 4-for-21 with an RBI and six strikeouts. The Reds are coping with injuries to Jonathan India (foot) and Jake Fraley (toe), leading to Fairchild's recent spate of plate appearances.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Back in big leagues

    Fairchild was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    The 27-year-old was sent to Louisville in early July but will rejoin the big club Sunday with Jonathan India (foot) landing on the injured list. Fairchild has a .237/.339/.404 slash line in 66 games this season, and he's unlikely to see significant playing time since Cincinnati's outfield group is currently in good health.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Optioned to Triple-A

    Fairchild was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Fairchild had just been recalled Sunday but now finds himself back in the minors. The 27-year-old is clearing out to make room on the roster for Tuesday's starter, Brett Kennedy.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Draws key walk in return

    Fairchild served as a pinch hitter, walked and scored a run in Sunday's 4-3 win over San Diego.

    Fairchild hit for the lefty-batting Jake Fraley against Padres lefty Tom Cosgrove and worked a seven-pitch walk in the bottom of the eighth inning. It turned out to be a key plate appearance, as Tyler Stephenson followed with a pinch-hit, two-run home run to give Cincinnati a lead it did not relinquish. Fairchild, who spent the first two-and-a-half months of the season in the majors, was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday after spending the last 10 days in the minors. He'll reprise a role as the Reds' fifth outfielder.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Makes return to parent club

    The Reds recalled Fairchild from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    Fairchild will rejoin the parent club following a week-and-a-half-long stay in the minors during which he went 6-for-25 with three home runs and a triple across five games. The 27-year-old will likely serve as a short-side platoon outfielder while he's up with the parent club.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Sent to Triple-A

    Fairchild was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

    Fairchild will head to Louisville after spending the entirety of the 2023 campaign to this point with the Reds, producing a .237 average with four homers, 22 RBI, 25 runs and six stolen bases over 156 at-bats in 64 games. With Cincinnati's roster returning to full health recently, Fairchild slid out of the starting lineup and he'll now look to get more consistent reps in Triple-A.

  • Reds' Stuart Fairchild: Ready to go Monday

    Fairchild (neck) is starting in center field and batting ninth Monday versus the Rockies.

    Fairchild will return to the lineup after missing the last couple contests with neck stiffness. The outfielder is batting .200 with three homers, a double, seven RBI, eight runs scored and two stolen bases over 40 at-bats in 14 games this month. With both Nick Senzel, Jake Fraley and Joey Votto (shoulder/biceps) returning to the lineup in the past week, Fairchild could soon find it hard to crack the Reds' lineup on a consistent basis.
