Re: Corcino no hitter thru 6
I know that Corcino has always been compared to Cueto.
Cueto was 22.2 (22 and 2 months) when he came up with the Reds (Opening Day 2008).
Corcino is now 21.10. Just to give a perspective on age.
Cueto with 348.2 IP in MiL: 43 IP (rookie), 76.1 IP (A), 146 IP (A+), 61 IP (AA), 22 IP (AAA).
Corcino with 342.2 IP: 34 IP (Dominican Rookie), 68 IP (rookie), 170.2 IP (A), 0 IP (A+), 70 IP (AA).
Cueto had better numbers (most notably BB/9) but the numbers are comparable and this gives you an idea how close Corcino could be if he follows a similar path as Cueto. Interesting that Cueto pretty much skipped AAA (22 IP before he was called up for good).
