Relief innings aren't necessarily comparable to starter innings, but I definitely agree we can pretty much write off the idea of him starting a game in a Reds uniform. It's an even riskier transition at this point in the contract. If they haven't given him a chance by now, there's no way it's happening next year IMO.
