Also, I do not like the Boxberger in relief ordeal. He was looking pretty good as a starter. Why change that??
At a minimum, it's to keep his innings down. From the get-go, it has been speculated he was slated for relief duty down the line anyway (I think it was Baseball America that dubbed him as the Reds' future closer), but if he has a third pitch that can develop into something more than average, I bet you'll see him stick as a starter.
