That's why I don't understand why some on here claim he will only be a good arm out of the bullpen for the Reds. I have not seen him pitch personally but his stats are much better than any other Reds pitching prospect in many years including Homer Bailey and no one thought he'd only be a decent bullpen guy. I see the guy getting a taste sometime next year and hopefully being a fixture in the rotation starting in 2009...
