There is a difference between voting for a relief pitching prospect and a solid reliever. Right now, Hayes seems to have strike-out stuff, but struggles with throwing strikes. I know he has had a good spring, but he is still not a for sure reliever. Kivel may not be likely to pitch in the major leagues, but if he does, he could be a solid starting pitcher. I am not too worried about ACL issues. If he did not have that injury, the Reds would not have been able to take him in the 10th round.
