Maloney is not a power pitcher. Instead he thrives on a 87-91 mph sinker, a plus changeup and pitchability to spare. Look for him in the Cincinnati rotation before season's end.

I'd love to see a sinkerballer in the Reds rotation and I'm befuddled as to why we don't already have one. Seems to me sinkerball pitchers would do better in GABP than power pitchers and we sure can use a LH sinkerballer in this rotation now to go with four RHs including three power pitchers. The Cardinals have made a point of seeking out sinkerballers and I don't know why the Reds haven't done the same
