    Stephenson promoted to Pensacola

    According to a tweet he just sent out. Reds must really want him here soon.

    Depending on how well he finishes the year there, I could see him going into 2014 as a top 10 prospect.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    His last start he was outstanding, fastball had zip like Cingrani's, his slider was low away and on the corner, threw one changeup on 3-2 pitch that made the hitter look goofy. One inning he threw about a half dozen changeups in a row and then threw a 97 mph fastball that just wasnt legal IMO. He's nasty.

    As long as he doesn't get blown up, I don't think it's a question he will be in the top 15. He is dominating, it will be interesting to see how he handles AA.
    Just a dude who loves the reds, and some new sneakers.

    Doubtful, but he'll be gone next winter. Which is when Stephenson should be ready.

    Wow, this caught me off guard.

    I'm of the mindset that once you get to AA, things can really move quickly based on what happens up at the big league level.

    My quick reaction on this one is I think the odds favor him making a cameo in Cincinnati next season. Assuming his stuff sticks at the next 2 levels like I think it will.

    The Reds could trade Bailey this winter. 2015 may seem to make more sense and coincides with Stephenson's arrival better but it would have to be a deadline trade and might not bring as much as a trade this winter would, more time = more value. Whichever - Stephenson is being pushed but at least it is a level at a time and allowing him to succeed if briefly, before bumping him up. I like it - let him rise until he is challenged.

    Homer could fetch a few top level prospects, which is exactly what Cinci needs.
