“There is a hardness in him”, reds said manager David Bell. “Where it’s like she knows who he is. He knows what to do, he doesn’t let it affect his confidence too much.”
He reds they have claimed two of the first three games and Steer, called up in 2022 after being acquired from Minnesota in the Tyler Mahle trade, has been at the center of both victories. He reds are looking for their first win of a four-game series against St. Louis since June 2021, when they swept four games in St. Louis
Steer has become a consistent force as Cincinnati’s No. 3 hitter while maintaining his first base duties with a team-leading six home runs.
“I started out as a ‘put the ball in play’ guy,” Steer said. “With the Twins, I made a big adjustment to my swing to hit with more power. I hit with more power, but I struck out more. I’m still in that transition of putting the two back together and finding the best of both worlds to put the ball in play and also produce some power. I’ve come full circle.”

“We were in a rut where everything that could go wrong did go wrong,” cardinals general manager Mike Girsch said before Wednesday’s game at Cincinnati. “Every day we were waiting for the black jack to come out or whatever. Once things started to get better, the attitude and expectations that we can do this (created) a more positive direction and we started to play the way we we expected”. play all year.
