Re: Sean Watson mention in Baseball Prospectus this morning
My personal opinion on why the Reds are giving him a shot at starting.
1. He has two plus pitches(fastball and curve) and one potential above average pitch(Change). This would project him as a major league starter.
2. Has a body of a workhorse. 6' 1"- 6'3" depending on who you ask, 210 pounds, thick legs. He has the body to log 200 plus innings year after year.
3. Not positive on this, but I bet he has a pretty smooth delivery. That is the reason why Wagner could never be a starter. I bet his delivery also makes the Reds feel comfortable about him increasing his pitch count.
Just my thoughts.
