He was one of the best relievers last year, and he has been impressive so far this year in spring training. If there really are 13 pitchers to break camp, there is no reason why he should not go north ahead of the rest of the competition.
The competition to make the bullpen will be awfully intense and it is possible he could start the year in Louisville.He has done very well against major league competition, so I expect he would make it back to Cincinnati a lot sooner than midseason.
