    Horst, not Muhlmann

    In an April when none of the Reds' touted bullpen prospects has been lights out (and some have been poor -- Fisher, Watson, Viola), Dayton's lefthander Jeremy Horst has put up great numbers. In his last 11.1 innings he's given up 2 hits, walked 1 and struck out 17. Opponents are hitting .128 on the season against him. Last year out of the Billings pen he K'd 51 in 39 innings and opponents hit .234 (pretty good for the Pioneer League). Right now he looks like the best arm out of the 07 draft behind Lotzkar.

    His last couple outings they've stretched him to 3 innings -- I wonder if they're trying to move him into the rotation.

    Wow. Those are some numbers. I've never heard of this guy -- what's his story? I see he's a 21st Rd pick from 2007 and a lefty to boot.

    He had a less than stellar final year in college, at Armstrong Atlantic State University, putting up a 5.88 ERA -- though his K/9 was a not too shabby 11.2.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I know nothing about him but those numbers are terrific. A power arm just puting command together maybe? Anyone know his repertoire and any reports?

    Jeff Jeffords is another guy dominating hitters in the Midwest League. He's allowed only one run on six hits in 10 innings with a 4 BB/18 K ratio. It's nice to see the Reds starting to collect some power arms in the bullpen. Tyler Pelland, Josh Roenicke, Pedro Viola, Carlos Fisher, and Derrik Lutz are all guys who could possibly help the Reds within the next two years.

    Good old Horst....blew a 1972 game against LA Rams by missing FG off less than 25 yards (3 of them) and another game against BAL that year or else the bengals go 10-4.

    Made a lot of FG but also missed his share. He was better then Dave Green though and Chris Bahr.....boy did i dislike Chris Bahr.

    Yeah, and its very nice to hear new names cropping up like Horst and Jeffords, too, means the pipeline is filling up with depth to push everyone.

    Yep. Other guys like Ramon Geronimo and Lee Tabor are pitching well in Sarasota after solid seasons in Dayton last year. Jordan Smith is currently starting in Sarasota he probably profiles as a setup man with his stuff (mid 90's fastball, slider, splitter).

    I think the Reds lost the World Series to the As on the same day.

    Re: Horst, not Muhlmann

    You are correct.......the Reds were expected to win that series...the Bengals were not really taken seriously until after 1973 season....then they go and trade Bill Bergey and they had no run defense. Bergey had the gall to want more money...and he was not going to get it from Paul Brown. Thanks WFL!

    I know it's a reds ML thread but does anything ever really change with the bengals org?

    Re: Horst, not Muhlmann

    Horst was named the Midwest League pitcher of the week.

    Midwest League
    Jeremy Horst, Dayton
    0-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 G, 0 GS, 6.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 11 SO
    Relievers get love, too. While Horst was honored for his two dominant outings this week, his last four appearances have all been noteworthy. In 11 1/3 innings, he's allowed just two hits and one walk while collecting 17 strikeouts. Horst has been successful no matter the situation, and it's reasonable to expect his recent dominance to yield save opportunities soon. On April 16, Horst earned a hold with three scoreless innings, following a good start from Luis Montano. On Sunday, he was called upon to stop the bleeding after the Dragons fell into a 9-0 hole. Right-handed hitters can't be pleased when they see Horst on the mound; he has limited them to a paltry .105 so far this year.

    Re: Horst, not Muhlmann

    Horst is a left-hander I like a lot. Although he's in the bullpen, he's been averaging over two innings per appearance ever sine being drafted, so the Reds obviously like what they're seeing. He's a big left-hander, so maybe he's a future LOOGY, or maybe he has the potential to be more once he gets better control. Unfortunately, he has 30 BBs in 56.1 IP. The 73 Ks offset that a bit, though.

    Does anyone know, though - is the guy all fastball or does he have secondary pitches and how do they grade?
