    Re: Hunter Greene

    I suspect the Reds are considering him working out of the bullpen in a Cincinnati this year, if they are still in the race.

    Re: Hunter Greene

    If the Reds move Greene up to the bigs this season, I’d rather have him start games and work 3-5 innings on full rest. I’m suspicious of the impact of putting Greene in the bullpen.

    I guess it doesn’t matter if he’s used very sparingly. But in the heat of battle, I’d rather avoid the frequent warm ups and game appearances.

    I suspect the Reds are keeping that as an option in the back of their mind, but that they would prefer not go there. And I suspect they probably won't need to. Santillan is part of the equation based on how he looks during his stay. Hopefully Antone is there as hammer, and hopefully Lorenzen, they can add Lodolo.

    I just think they save Hunter for 2022 if they can.

    counterpoint: a lot of pitchers who end up being great starters cut their teeth as relievers when they're rookies. david price is one example (not that he's great any longer, but he once was). he debuted with the rays as a rookie as a reliever, the first year they went to the world series. now, i don't think price had gone almost 3 years without pitching in a real game prior to that season (in fact I know he hadn't) but there are other examples as well. i think greene would be a good fit in the pen if the starters stay healthy. i like our starting rotation, especially now that vlad has replaced jeff hoffman who has no business on being on a MLB roster.

    Its not really the same though, because big league hitters make you throw so many more of them and punish a lot of the ones lesser guys look silly against. Long innings with high stress is where injuries come from. I'd be fine with Greene starting in AAA until around August 1 and then he can come up and help the Reds bullpen. Compete for a rotation spot next year, but he should start spring training on the outside looking in. There should be 6 or 7 guys ahead of him going into Spring Training next year .

    Re: Hunter Greene

    Babying power pitchers is becoming an antiquated philosophy. ItÂ’s pretty much a given most will have multiple injuries throughout their career. If a guy can average 100mph and proves he can locate then you canÂ’t waste those innings between injuries in the minors. Hopefully his first few starts in AAA are very successful and he gives them no choice about a call up.

    Next year he will absolutely be in the rotation baring anything horrible happening.

    If he does well in AAA I see no reason why you wouldn’t let him pitch 20 innings of so out of the bullpen at the end of whatever his innings limit is.

    Yep, similar to how Tampa used David Price

    Yeah I would imagine his innings cap is pretty low after not pitching in a game in two years. I don’t see why you wouldn’t bring him up and pitch him out of the pen as he approaches it, assuming you’re in the race.

    Re: Hunter Greene

    I wonder why Greene and not Lodolo? Both are pitching extremely well, but Lodolo is a little older.

    This? This was my 20,000th post?

    I may as well have been posting about mayonnaise.

    Re: Hunter Greene

    Anyone know if Hunter will rock 44 for the Bats, and if that is his (eventual) preferred number for Cincy?

    I for one hope so.
    Go BLUE!!!
