Re: Please help me understand
Some things you need to know:
1) Billings, as a Pioneer League member, doesn't begin play until halfway through the summer.
2) Typically, the Reds tend to baby high profile, high pedigree arms.
3) High schoolers tend to have poor mechanics that need to be "fixed". Travieso is one of those arms.
4) The Pioneer League and Arizona Fall Leagues are typically filled with teenagers, while the Pioneer League is usually filled with guys that tend to be a bit older.
5) Players can be taken off the Pioneer League rosters (or put on) pretty much at will.
6) Garrett is older than Travieso by 18 months.
