Re: Hardballtimes on Zach Stewart
I think Stewart is gonna turn out to be a major steal in the third round. At one point he was viewed as a late first round pick but Texas Tech moved him to the rotation in the middle of the season and hurt his stock. As a starter his slider began to get loopy or slurvy and his control suffered. His stuff is better suited for the bullpen. Everyone who saw him pitch after he signed had nothing but great things to say about him. I expect Stewart to start the 2009 season with Double-A Carolina and I wouldn't be surprised if he's with the Reds by the end of the summer. Stewart, Fisher, Roenicke, Burton, and Cordero will give the Reds some serious flame throwers from the right side.
I miss Adam Dunn.
