    Price calls prospect Corcino a bright spot early in camp

    "It was a step back last year for Daniel Corcino," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "But I don't think he was ever right. He turned it around in the second half a bit. When he was with us [last spring], his arm slot was low. His stuff was flat. His velocity on both his fastball and slider dropped down. His command kind of fell by the wayside."

    During the early days of camp, Price has seen marked improvement. Corcino's velocity, command and confidence seem to have returned.

    "This spring, he has been one of the many bright spots," Price said. "He would be that comeback player of the year if he throws like he is now. He would have a dynamite year. He's going to be a guy that would quickly put himself into position to be toward the top of the list of guys that could help us this year."

    Thank God. Corcino practically fell off my radar last year. With the lack of depth this season and all the contracts expiring in the near future, Corcino getting back on track would be huge.

    He's still pretty young. I think we may have wrote him off a little too early last year despite the poor season.

    If Corcino comes back that would be huge for this organization.

    Corcino is one of three that I'm hoping to see have big bounce-back/breakout seasons:


    1. Dan Corcino
    2. Yorman Rodriguez
    3. Dan Langfield

    Still no word about whether Corcino will start or relieve this year. If the Reds think he can possibly start in the majors and he is legitimately looking better, I would hope that the Reds give him a rotation spot in Louisville.

    Corcino, Holmberg and Stephenson are three that I think could push the Reds to deal an arm for a bat come the trade deadline (Leake?).

    One thing that amazes me is how rarely it's brought up that the Reds asked Corcino to do changes to his mechanics last year. It should've been expected he would be inconsistent. Hopefully the added time with his adjustments are paying off and getting him back to where he left off.

    He pitched out of the bullpen at the end of last year in Louisville and all of Winter Ball.

    With Wang, Francis, Marshall, Rogers, Holmberg and Corcino all slated for Louisville, things will get interesting if Francis and/or Wang do not opt out.

    Didn't even realize that. If Bryan Price is raving about him in spring training though, I'd imagine Corcino has the upper hand over about anyone on that list.

    It's spring training--we could see players being revered and then released a few weeks later. I wouldn't put too much stock in what coaches are saying to the media right now.

    In his first outing today, Corcino was the 2013 version. 1 inning 4 runs, hits 2 walks, 43.20 ERA. Don't know if he's going out for another inning.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    There is some good news from today.... He hit 95 MPH. I didn't see that, or much close to it all of 2013. The control.... yeah, that still needs fixing.

    Don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but this was his 2nd outing of the spring. The first was 2/3 ip, 4 runs, 3 walks. Guillon I think gave up 3 of his runs on the GS.
