Insight: Opening Day isn't for another four weeks so the Reds can afford to ease Leake back into action. Though he isn't a big strikeout guy, it's tough to ignore the impressive ERA Leake posted in 2013 (3.37 in 192 1/3 innings).

Description: Reds starter Mike Leake finished the month with a 1.76 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP over 41 innings.
Insight: It was his second straight month with an ERA below 2.00. Cincinnati stuck with Leake in the rotation instead of rookie sensation Tony Cingrani when Johnny Cueto returned from his first disabled list stint, and it has paid off big time. The 2008 eighth overall pick is finally living up to his potential.

Description: Reds righthander Mike Leake was this close to his eighth victory of the season. Instead, his closer Aroldis Chapman let him down by blowing the save in the ninth inning Saturday against Arizona.
