What is his FB velocity and does it have movement?
He will be packaged in a trade in the offseason
I think that Drew Cisco could be the next Chad Rogers/Sam LeCure.
Yeah, I wasn't comparing him directly to Tony...not the same kind of pitcher at all. I was more comparing the splash he might make but Leake as a rookie would have been a better comp and they are more comparable as pitchers. Rogers needs a good changeup and maybe a wrinkle on his fastball or a slider. He has 2 quality pitches and 1 he's working on right now. IMO, it's how well that third pitch becomes as to his starting or relieving.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
