Jesse Winker
Improving footwork
OFCincinnati Reds
July 10, 2020
Winker spent much of the shutdown in Cincinnati working on improving his footwork, in the hopes of bettering his defensive skills, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I was taking fly balls from DB and I just ran a ton," Winker said. "I think that was the best way to stay in shape for me, personally. Everything else -- throwing and hitting -- I've always trusted that would be there when it's time to go do that. Keeping my body in shape throughout this quarantine was my No. 1 priority."

Nick Castellanos
Prefers not to DH
OFCincinnati Reds
July 7, 2020
Though Castellanos is presumably a good fit to DH for the Reds, he'd prefer to play in the field instead, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I don't want to DH. I chose to come to the Reds -- first and foremost, I believe they can win," Castellanos said on Tuesday. "But also, I like being in the National League where I get to play defense every day. A goal of mine is to become a better and better defender every year that I play -- every game that I play is probably a more appropriate answer."

Shogo Akiyama
Playing corner outfield spots
OFCincinnati Reds
July 5, 2020
Akiyama will play in the corner outfield spots primarily to allow Nick Senzel to focus on center field, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Speaking about the setup, manager David Bell said, "We really believe in his ability to adapt to any outfield position. That makes it nice. It gives more of the luxury of allowing Nick to settle into center field -- not that Shogo won't play center field. He will."

Trevor Bauer
Four-man rotation possible
PCincinnati Reds
July 4, 2020
Bauer would prefer to pitch in a four-man rotation, or at least pitch every four days, and that's an option on the table for the Reds, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I've got that as being 100 percent on the table, especially in the shortened season," pitching coach Derek Johnson said. "That's something he really wants to do, and he thinks he would thrive in that environment. I know there's questions behind that. At the same time, I think we're in the situation to do it. I trust Trevor. I trust what kind of work he puts in, invests in himself, and I think if he feels he can do it, I think he can."

Hendrick was not included on the Reds' 60-man player pool for the 2020 season and wasn't really under consideration, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. "Austin is more of a ways away, obviously a high school kid who hasn't even started a season yet," general manager Nick Krall said. "He's got to get back into baseball shape before you even think of something like that. That wasn't a consideration."
