I'm curious to see how Lorenzen performs in the Fall League this year. He is polarizing. I understand there are Reds scouts who see him as the #2 prospect to Stephenson. Usually when pitching prospects have that much potential (i) they throw strikes and (ii) they aren't put in the bullpen for their first 22 minor league appearances.
He was a closer in college last season, so they're probably looking to stretch him out gradually. Though if the plan is to keep him as a closer, he didn't exactly set off a Ryan Wagner type of bang (not that a stellar debut guarantees anything).
