    The Diamond Jaxx (6-10) struck for a two-run first inning against Carolina starter Daryl Thompson (L, 0-4). Guillermo Quiroz hit a two-run homer against Thompson. Thompson, making his second start off of the disabled list, left the game in the second inning due to an illness. The game started with a heat index of 98 degrees. Lee Tabor pitched the next 3 1/3 innings in long relief to preserve the Carolina (8-8) bullpen

    We might see Chapman in the Reds pen this year, but the Reds can't keep him at the major league level for four years in the pen, developing him into a starter. The difference between Chapman and Santana is about 28 million dollars, that makes developing him in the pen long term a non starter. It would be a 30M investment to drive up his value for another team to get him in FA.

    Say the Reds did this, and he played his entire contract for the Reds, 6 years. He develops into a TOR starter in year 4, still cheap for the Reds, but unlikely to that point that he's truly earned his contract. Years 5 & 6 see sub 3.25 ERA's and 15+ W's (nebulous stats, but you get the idea of the production). Now he's 28 and probably the top pitcher on the FA market. I don't think the Reds can be the team that develops Chapman for the Yankees. He should be starting.
