Raburn and fellow NRI-teammate Desmond Jennings have reasonably good odds to make the Reds' Opening Day roster out of spring training.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds are lacking other veteran alternatives to win bench roles, and they hope to have Jesse Winker begin 2017 back in Triple-A Louisville. Moreover, their starting outfield of Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton and especially Scott Schebler are somewhat vulnerable to losing playing time.

Raburn signed a minor league deal with the Reds on Friday that includes an invite to major league spring training, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder will head to Reds camp with an outside shot at making the Opening Day roster following Friday's deal. He struggled across the board with the Rockies in 2016, slashing .220/.309/.404 over 223 at-bats. However, Raburn is just one season removed from a productive campaign with the Indians when he notably hit .325 with a 1.004 OPS against left-handed pitching.

Raburn (foot) is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, batting fifth and playing left field, Jack Magruder of Fanrag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn had been limited to occasional pinch hit appearances over the past week, but it seems that his foot is fully healed. He'll slot into the Colorado outfield in place of rookie David Dahl in order to face Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray.

Raburn (foot) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn has been on the shelf since Monday due to a foot contusion, and he'll miss at least one more game Thursday. With Gerardo Parra (hamstring) also ailing, the Rockies are relatively thin in the corner outfield spots behind Carlos Gonzalez and Thursday's starting left fielder David Dahl.

Raburn (knee), who doubled in a pinch-hit opportunity Saturday, is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn was scheduled to start the second game of the series Friday, but had to be scratched due to a knee contusion. He was back in action Saturday to suggest he's healthy, but with the Rockies facing tough right-hander Noah Syndergaard on Sunday, Raburn will get the day off. The Rockies aren't expected to face a southpaw until next Thursday (Scott Kazmir), so it wouldn't be too surprising to see Raburn held out until then, as the team seems comfortable giving the young David Dahl regular starts in left. That being said, he should remain available as a bench option.

Raburn was scratched from Friday's lineup with a left knee contusion, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn will miss out on the Rockies' first game against a lefty since July 19 due the knee issue. The Rockies are saying it's just a bruise, which would suggest Raburn's safe from the DL, but his availability for the rest of the weekend is uncertain. David Dahl is now slated to man left field and bat seventh.

Raburn hit a grand slam as a pinch hitter Friday at the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn's eighth blast of the year came in the ninth inning to give the Rockies an 11-2 lead in a blowout victory. He came into this game with only one hit in his last 15 at-bats, and he's now slashing .234/.307/.469 in 146 at-bats on the year.

Raburn (illness) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scratched from Tuesday's lineup, Raburn ended up sitting Wednesday and Friday as well although the team did not say explicitly that his last two absences were due to the illness. Regardless, Raburn is back batting fifth against lefty Scott Kazmir on Saturday. Raburn is batting .257/.309/.473 against left-handed pitching this season.

Raburn (illness) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Raburn was scratched from Tuesday's lineup, sat Wednesday, and apparently is still not ready to go following Thursday's team off day. That said, Raburn starts primarily against lefties and the Dodgers are starting a right-hander in Bud Norris, so it's not entirely clear whether his absence is indeed related to the illness. His presence or lack thereof in Saturday's lineup against lefty Scott Kazmir will be telling.
