He'll never be a big "stuff" guy, but he's a good kid and a very good athlete that knows how to pitch. He gets a high percentage of ground balls, so maybe his route is a middle reliever, situational guy, I don't know. He's more than willing to do whatever it is the Reds, or another team, ask of him.
I'm proud of him no matter what, that's for sure.
I think he could have a good future in relief, especially if he stays with the Reds. That groundball rate is getting it done and in the bullpen he could probably add a tick or two on his FB.
