was wondering if anyone knew of any other pitchers that Mario Soto is working with? I know he worked with Cueto, Volquez, Ramirez and Del Rosario, anybody else?

Montano is another one of his protégés.

I'm trying to get Homer straightened out but it's not going well, I can't reach him. ;)

I think you can add the recently-suspended Junior Martinez to the list. He's one of those guys that supposedly has great stuff but just can't quite put it all together due to lack of command. I wouldn't be surprised if he's booted from the team soon following his suspension a la Angel Cabrera.

I think any pitcher that Mario has his hands on should be moved up on the Reds prospect list only because the changeups they are throwing at this point seem to be a pitch that can get major league hitters out IMO.

Sounds like Micah Owings could use some help with his change-up and adding a decent one could move him up a notch from swing man to dependable back of the rotation guy. I think he should be one of Soto's main pupils next spring.

Mario seems to have done a pretty good job with Ramon Ramirez.
