Reds’ Nick Lodolo Set to Return for Start vs. Rockies

The Cincinnati Reds are set to welcome back an essential part of their rotation as left- hander Nick Lodolo( 8- 3,2.96 ERA) returns from the injured list. Lodolo, who has been sidelined for 15 days due to a blister on his left hand, will take the mound on Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies in the second game of their four- game series.

Lodolo’s Recent Performance

In his latest start on June 23 against the Boston Red Sox, Lodolo had his five- start winning streak snapped. He allowed four runs( three earned) on five hits over42/3 innings, marking his shortest outing of the season. Despite this setback, Lodolo has been a formidable presence on the mound for Cincinnati.

Previous Encounter with Rockies

Lodolo will be making just his second career start against the Rockies. In their previous encounter on September 4, 2022, he delivered an impressive performance, allowing just two hits over six shutout innings while striking out nine and walking one in a no- decision.

Reds’ Recent Palm

The Reds are looking to build off a commanding 6- 0 win on Monday, a game that showcased the talents of first- time All- Star selection Elly De La Cruz. The Cincinnati shortstop had a stellar game, singling, doubling home a run, walking, scoring twice, and stealing two bases. This victory snapped a three- game skid and improved the Reds’ record to 1- 3 on their current 10- game homestand.

Reds manager David Bell praised De La Cruz’s all-around performance:

“Elly did it all (Monday), he’s had a lot of good (games) this year. That was at the top of what we’ve seen from him all year, just in all areas of the game. Even defensively, some routine plays but they were nice plays, and just had all kinds of energy and he’s just doing everything in his power to get us off to a good start. He kind of set the tone for the game.”

Rockies’ Sloppy Start

With two errors in their loss to the Reds, the Rockies started their seven-game road trip poorly. When Colorado starter Ryan Feltner mishandled a soft toss from catcher Elias Diaz back to the mound in the fourth inning, Cincinnati’s Jeimer Candelario was able to run home and take a 2-0 lead. This was one of the more embarrassing moments. Diaz was charged with the error.

Bud Black, Rockies manager, voiced his displeasure: That was disappointing. catching ball on which Feltner displayed a little lack of enthusiasm. We discussed it in the tunnel below. One run can make or break a game like that.

Cal Quantrill on the Hill

The Rockies will send right-hander Cal Quantrill (6-6, 3.77 Period) to the hill on Tuesday. Quantrill pitched five innings in his most recent start, a no-decision against the Milwaukee Brewers, who were visiting. He gave up two runs on five hits and four walks. He became the 16th major leaguer born in Canada to achieve this feat during that outing, joining his father, Paul Quantrill, on the list. He recorded his 500th strikeout of his career during that outing.

Since the beginning of May, Cal Quantrill has made 12 starts and gone 6-3 with a 3.03 earned run average. In his career, he has faced the Reds four times (two starts), going 0-1 with a 3.38 earned run average.


Nick Lodolo’s return to the mound is a significant boost for the Reds as they attempt to maintain their momentum and rise in the standings. Cincinnati’s success this season is largely due to his strong performances. In the meantime, the Rockies will rely on Cal Quantrill to perform well and assist them in recovering from their most recent mistakes. As both teams attempt to regain their spark and win this crucial series, the matchup promises to be exciting.
