A young pitcher like this with shoulder trouble I would not worry about him pitching again this year.
Right-hander Daryl Thompson is on the DL at Triple-A Louisville with a shoulder strain.
"We don't think it's too serious," said Terry Reynolds, the Reds director of player development. "We think with rest and rehab he'll be able to pitch again this year."
A shoulder problem with any pitcher has to be a reason for concern, particularly one like Thompson who has has shoulder surgery two years ago.
Thompson, 22, hasn't pitched since his July 13 start. He's 5-0 with a 2.95 ERA at Louisville. He started the year at Double-A Chattanooga was went 3-2 with a 1.76 ERA.
