Jason Standridge is a right-handed reliever for the Reds. He’s a big guy at 6’4″ and throws kinda hard. He began his tenure with the 2006 team in the middle of June when the Reds bought his contract to replace that of Rick White.
Here’s his requisite stuff I’m copying from his profile on Reds.com to fill space until I do the research appropriately:
- Made a career-high 34 apps for the Rangers and Reds
- was a non-roster invitee to Rangers spring training
- began the regular season at Class AAA Oklahoma and made 15 apps there before his contract was purchased by Tex on 6/17
- made a pair of relief apps for the Rangers, on 6/19 vs Was (0.2ip, 4h, 3er, 1ibb, 0k) and on 6/20 at LAA (1.2ip, 3h, 0r, 0bb, 2k, 1wp), before he was designated for assignment on 6/24
- on 6/30 refused an outright assignment to the minor leagues and became a free agent
- the next day was signed by the Reds to a minor league contract
- made 2 apps for Class AAA Louisville, on 7/2 and 7/3 vs Indianapolis, before he was promoted to the Reds on 7/5
- finished the season in Cin
- posted a 0.53era in his first 15 apps for the Reds through 8/13, then in 8g from 8/14-8/31 posted a 13.50era before finishing the season with a 2.70era in 9 apps in September/October
- from 7/16-8/13 did not allow a run in 14 consecutive apps (16ip)
- the 14-game and 16-inning scoreless streaks both were the longest by any Reds pitcher in 2005
- earned his first Major League victories on 7/16 vs Col (7-6 win) and 7/27 at LA (7-6 win)
- suffered his 2 losses in consecutive apps on 8/16 vs SF (10-8 loss) and 8/20 vs Ari (6-2 loss).
