Reds' Kyle Farmer: Falls short of cycle Monday

Farmer went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and five RBI in Monday's 11-1 win over the Phillies. His two-run shot in the third inning blew the game open and spurred Farmer to a career-best five-RBI day. The 30-year-old infielder snapped an 0-for-14 mini-slump with the performance, but on the season he's hitting only .215 with four homers, 13 runs and 17 RBI through 50 games.

Reds' Kyle Farmer: Blasts second homer Saturday

Farmer went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Rockies. Farmer tallied his second three-hit game this week. His home run came in the 11th inning off Ben Bowden to give the Reds a two-run lead. The 30-year-old isn't hitting very well on a day-to-day basis, but he is receiving more playing time due to Joey Votto (thumb) being on the 10-day injured list. Farmer is slashing .241/.337/.337 with two home runs, nine RBI and 11 runs in 95 plate appearances.

Reds' Kyle Farmer: Settling in as regular shortstop

Farmer will start at shortstop and bat eighth Tuesday against the Pirates. Joey Votto's (thumb) recent move to the injured list has indirectly opened up an everyday role at shortstop for Farmer. With Mike Moustakas moving across the diamond to cover first base while Votto is out, Eugenio Suarez has shifted over to third base to allow Farmer to step in at shortstop. Farmer will be making his fourth straight start at the position Tuesday, but he shouldn't attract much interest outside of NL-only formats. Farmer is hitting .210/.329/.290 on the season and will likely regularly fill a bottom-third spot in the batting order.

Kyle Farmer sitting on Sunday for Reds

Cincinnati Reds catcher Kyle Farmer is not in the lineup Sunday in the team's game against the Chicago Cubs. Farmer is being replaced at second base by Nick Senzel against Cubs starter Trevor Williams. In 56 plate appearances this season, Farmer has a .188 batting average with a .595 OPS,...

Reds' Kyle Farmer: Moves to bench

Farmer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs. With Mike Moustakas recently missing time due to an illness and with Jonathan India (undisclosed) having been moved to the 10-day injured list earlier this weekend, Farmer has benefited from an uptick in work. He drew starts in the infield in four of the past five games, going 4-for-12 while reaching base at a .429 clip over that span. Though Farmer looks like the Reds' top utility infielder, he may not get the chance to play regularly at the keystone while India remains out. Nick Senzel will pick up his second start of the season at second base, and he could eventually settle in as the Reds' primary option at the position if manager David Bell wants to trot out his most potent lineup.
