Who said he doesn't have the arm to succeed?
All I said was if he continues with his current K rate, it may be a bit concerning.
There were some questions around whether the Reds overdrafted Travieso when they selected him 14th overall in 2012. In his (admittedly very) brief professional career, he has done nothing to dispel those suspicions [much like fellow 2012 draftee Jeff Gelalich and 2011 draftee Gabriel Rosa].
If and/or when Travieso begins to strike people out, that could all change on a dime.
