Re: Hardballtimes on Zach Stewart
Stewart was certainly dominant in Dayton this season and when he was able to command his slider, the hitters had no chance. I remember his first night with the team, he was consistently hitting 95 and topping out at 96. He lost a couple of miles an hour as the month wore on, but still looked very good. I felt he was the second best prospect on the Dayton team behind Soto. Big thing he has to be able to do is just become a little more consistent in terms of hitting his spots. There were nights when he would struggle a little with command and he was able to get away with it in the Midwest League but he would have gotten hit on those nights in the Southern League. Overall, a very bright light for the Reds in terms of potential.
