Some folks don't put relievers on the top prospects lists, but with Pelland, Roenicke, Viola and Guevera at AAA or AA, the Reds may be near some bullpen help from inside the system.
Pelland had 10.27 Ks per 9 innings at Louisville, even higher than his 9.68 at AA. Walks plague him, but at AAA his walk rate per 9 went down to 2.66, which isn't bad at all.
Roenicke had a 13.34 K/9 at High A. Then, at Louisville, his strikeouts tailed off at the end, but it was still 7.11. And his WHIP at AAA was 0.95. 24 saves at the two levels.
Viola flew through the system this year and wound up at AA with numbers similar to Roenicke. 8.05 Ks per 9, with a 0.95 WHIP. Only 55 hits allowed in 82.1 innings for the full year.
Guevara was at AA all year, 62 innings, 12.63 Ks per 9, 1.19 WHIP, 2.32 ERA. Don't know why he didn't get a call to AAA.
Several of these guys are going to the Arizona Fall League, which, in this case, could mean the Reds are trying to get them ready for prime time (or showing them for a trade). But with the Reds' current bullpen, you would think they will soon be giving these guys a shot.
