    A hard thrower like him just trying to rehab does not sound promising at all
    I'm fairly certain he heard a "pop" and was immediately sick to his stomach.

    Just to put a mildly positive spin on this, Greene turns 19 on Monday. Even if this goes to worst-case scenario and he needs surgery, he'll still be young on the other side of it.

    I shudder to think about what kind of pitcher he would be without off the charts velocity. He is already extremely hittable as is.

    Less hits than innings pitched and over 11 strikeouts per 9 is “extremely hittable?”

    I don't care how highly regarded the guy is, it's never a good idea to draft a high school pitcher that high. Even if he stays healthy, the odds are stacked against him. And serious injury is so common. In Greene's case, you also have to add in the fact that he had been treated with kid gloves. This isn't hindsight -- it was all true at the time of the draft.

    So where's the cutoff in the first round on where it's a good idea and where it's not a good idea to draft a high school pitcher?

    Well at least we wern't going to be counting on him helping the big league team any time soon. Hopefully he learns how to get hitters out without having to rare back for 102.

    Re: Hunter Greene

    Not a single post yet suggesting to move him to shortstop...it's like I hardly know Redszone anymore

    Hunter Greene should be groomed as Joey Votto's backup.

    How's that?

    Sucks. He’s so young still. Hope to see him shining for the Reds in 2022

    India and Trammel should be fearing for their lives. And maybe Santillian.

    Long will be fine, he's a second baseman.
