On top of that, not that another teams manager/coach would allow it, but the pitching coach on his team is a Reds employee. He didn't go over what they had planned for him on that day.
Looks like he had 45 pitches. Are they considering making him a starter? I am ignorant to the relief pitcher pitch counts, but that seems kind of high.
According to the box score he had 20 strikes in 45 pitches - ouch. Hopefully that is just first game jitters or something.
