Regarding Travieso, I don't think the scouts are downgrading him because they don't like his stuff. They just haven't been able to grade him at all yet, because they have not gotten a good look at his stuff yet. It is hard to rank a guy too highly when you have not seen him pitch in real games where he was using his full repertoire. The few times that Travieso has pitched in public he was in instructional mode and was not in full competition mode. We won't know what we really have in Travieso until the games start this season. All we know is he has a big arm and has had very little experience and had hardly received any coaching until he reported to the Reds. The scouts don't dislike his stuff, they just haven't seen his true stuff yet, so they are not going to give him a high grade until they get a good look at him first.
Here is a scouting report and video of Travieso from just before he was drafted by the Reds: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...t-and-analysis
