2013 Ondrusek is a physically large man but not an overpowering pitcher. He lives on the margins with walk and strikeout totals that tarnish the shiny ERAs of his first three seasons. He is durable, having appeared in 60 games or more in each of those seasons, although he faded after the All-Star break for the second straight year. Considering his hard sinker, cutter, and curve, it seems like Ondrusek should be better than he is. The ability to soak innings in middle relief has value, but his continued inability to miss bats is cause for concern.
2012 Baker likes using this hulking righty in tandem with Bray in the seventh and eighth innings, but, as with the southpaw, it isn't strictly situational. He used both every other day last year until August, when Ondrusek landed on the DL with a strained forearm after appearing in 56 of the Reds' first 114 games; he wasn't as effective after he was reactivated at the end of the month. As with Masset's second-half breakdown, you can wonder how much of it was a product of asking too much, because what doesn't get reflected in a simple appearances count is the number of times a guy warms up and sits back down, used or unused. If he's healthy, he should be able to build on last year's four-month run of effectiveness.
2011 On the surface, Ondrusek’s rookie season looked like a rousing success punctuated by a 22-inning scoreless streak, but storm clouds could be seen gathering on the horizon. The towering righty put himself on the prospect map with a BABIP-aided 2009, and his luck held upon earning a major-league gig. The Texan relies on a low-90s sinker-cutter combo which garners a healthy helping of grounders, but doesn’t miss many bats. If Ondrusek possesses any intrinsic ability to prevent hits on balls in play, he didn’t begin to tap into it until his fifth professional season, but in some cases, a few fortunate and well-timed bounces are all it takes to carve out a major-league career.
2010 A mid-round pick in 2005, this tall, hard-throwing Texan didn’t appear to be anything special in his first four pro seasons, which he spent bouncing between the starting and relief work. Then last year he dominated out of the gate in his third go-round in High-A, and was nearly as good in Double-A, where he took over the closer’s job in June. Ondrusek didn’t allow a home run in 51 2/3 innings between those two levels, and though he did finally give up a lone dinger after being promoted to Triple-A—where he continued to close—he compensated by walking just two men in 20 2/3 innings. Altogether, he posted a 1.50 ERA in 72 minor-league innings. As great as his season was, there was clearly a lot of luck involved, and while there’s some projection in his big frame, deceptive delivery, and hard cutter, he was pitching way above his abilities in 2009—perhaps more than just fatigue was at work in his ugly showing in the Arizona Fall League. Still, he could contribute to the major-league pen yet, albeit further down the depth chart. The size of the correction he experiences this year will tell us a lot.

2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneLogan Ondrusek is from Shiner, Texas, where they make a delicious cheap beer. Connected to his throwing error? You decide. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableVote for the best commentary today: Reds radio announcer Chris Welsh made a comment regarding Reds rookie RHP Logan Ondrusek. Welsh commented that part of what makes Ondrusek so effective is that he has an incredible stride towards home plate. Ondrusek, who is about 6'8" has a huge stride towards the plate, thereby increasing his perceived velocity from 96 mph to close to 99 mph. Very reminiscent of the research shown by Eric Seidman last season.

And people said that Sabermetrics would never catch on. Hey wait a minute, has anyone ever seen Eric and Chris Welsh in the same room? (Russell A. Carleton)
