    Brandon Finnegan

    I did not see a thread in this forum to discuss Brandon.

    After sporting a 3.26 FIP and 2.87 xFIP in his first 10 appearances (13 IP) back, I believe he warrants some conversation. I have a few questions that interest me in regards to Brandon's future.

    Since Chattanooga's season is winding down and Louisville and Chattanooga out of the playoff hunt, could we see Brandon go down a level or two to pick up more innings at an affiliate that is in the playoff hunt? Could we see him on the AFL team? Can he be sent to the minors after Spring Training next year without clearing waivers?

    It would be great to see Brandon back in the bigs and contributing in a future Reds' bullpen.

    They need to decide whether they want to add him to the 40 man roster this off season. If they don't then he's exposed to the Rule 5 draft. If they do that they can option him out in 2020. I'd suggest they bring him up sometime in Sept. We're so devoid of LHPs we need to give him one more chance

    If the 40-man news is correct, I am pretty sure I would rather have him than Peralta or Stephens. Given the significant steps back Mella and Siri have taken this year, I also think I would rather have Finnegan have those 40-man spots, as well.

    Especially since Stevens and Mella although that option to the end of the year I would put Romano in that group too it's time to cut bait on some of these guys

    I'd like to see him throw some clean innings down in AA, I think he has 2 in 13 so far.

    The only Reds affiliate on track to make the playoffs is RK Billings. I'd send him to the AFL.

    Stephens, Peralta, and Romano should be let go before Finnegan.

    Agree on the first two, not on Romano. Getting lit up once doesn't mean the guy can't pitch. 10.1 K per 9 at L'ville, 3 to 1 K to W. Way too early, IMHO, to give up on Romano.
