    Daniel Renken

    3.31 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 10.3 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, 75 k/19 bb, 65 IP

    What's up with this guy?

    I haven't heard anything about him. He's only 21 and really doing well in Dayton. 25th rounder last year.

    BA America has his fast ball in the 88-91 range with good secondary pitches, good command, and a funky delivery (not violent, just unusual). IMO he should be the leading candidate for promotion to A+, even before Corcino and Smith. He is an experienced college starter from a good program who gets a lot of ground balls and seems to be improving as the season progresses. The K's are surprising. I am curious about whether the Reds have made any changes that have increased his velocity.

    Velocity is about what you have there. I would think Smith goes up no later than the all-star break and Renken either at the same time or shortly thereafter. That is just a guess. Lotzkar takes a spot in Dayton. Rogers could become a starter if they want to go that route. Not sure exactly how far away Jacob Johnson is but I don't think he is real close.

    reminds me of Leake, can make his fastball move pretty good

    72, do you the issue with Johnson?

    Bump

    After being sidetracked in the pitching Siberia of Bakersfield for a year +, he has resumed posting good numbers. H/9 and K/9 both are 7.4 this year. Can anyone who has seen him this year comment on what he is throwing? Is he a fly ball pitcher (Bakersfield stats)? Is he a legit candidate for a back end of the rotation starter down the line?

    havent seen him in a few years but what I saw was very much like Leake, he has all the off speed stuff and his fastball moves like crazy

    I still think he winds up a reliever. Has enough pitches and on a real bad team he would probably make it as a #5 starter, but the Reds have a lot of big arms that put him pretty far down the depth chart. He leans toward a fly ball guy, but it isn't extreme.

    Thanks, all. I was hoping he had picked up a little speed, but good movement at 89-90 is not bad. It just leaves less margin for error in location.
