March 2013 - Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is congratulated after hitting a spring training home run.
The Reds’ new manager, Bryan Price, says he plans to move Bruce into the cleanup spot, at least against right-handed starters. The old manager, Dusty Baker, had been reluctant to bat Votto and Bruce back to back because they’re both lefties.
March 2012 - Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco in a spring training game.
Mesoraco, nicknamed “Groundhog” by his teammates because he hails from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, is likely to get a lot more playing time in 2014. Ryan Hanigan, who had been sharing the starting catcher job with Mesoraco, has been traded to the Rays.
