I agree which is why I was puzzled that the Reds sent him out at the All star break saying that they wanted him to get his work in and not miss any time.
What's wrong with giving the kid a mid season break? I think he needs it more than the veterans. I'm glad he's getting it now but the Reds reasoning for sending him out before the break was a head scratcher for me.
