Re: Nick Travieso to make first pro start Sunday, July 22nd
Lotzkar isn't close to being ready and Sulbaran should move to the pen. The main 2 Reds pitching prospects are Cingrani and Corcino who both have questions and may end up as pen arms. Lotzkar is the only guy that has the complete tools to be a starter right now. But with his past injury history and struggles in AA, he is a 2 years off at least.
The next best pitching prospect who profiles as a starter is Mr.Stephenson down in rookie ball. Explains why the Reds drafted another arm.
