I'm not sure that Maloney is not a major leaguer, but I do think his max is as a fringe guy to provide innings at the back of a rotation when necessary. I see him having a career along the lines of Dustin Mosely. 6 or 7 years ago that would have made him the Red's ace, but now there are plenty of better internal options and younger guys who probably pass him by before the end of the year. He may still be a token arm to throw into a deal for something. I hope he gets in a groove at AAA and is pitching well as the dealine approaches.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
