I noticed that Hoover has a 1.44 ground ball to fly ball ratio at AAA. Small sample, only 20.2 innings, but it looks to me like he is working on avoiding his fly ball tendencies.

Otherwise his stats are stellar with a 12.19 K rate and very few hits allowed.

I have no doubt he will get a September call up, but it looks like he could help the Reds sooner than that.

Has anyone seen him pitch and notice any change? Are they working with him on getting more grounders?

Guy certainly has ability, he seems to miss a lot of bats.
