YearComment
2005 We're a long way from the flukish 2.70 ERA he posted in 2002. Riedling's inability to miss bats came home to roost last year, as his already suspect home-run, hit and walk rates all soared, resulting in an ugly season. It's a testament to the Reds' woeful pitching that they kept trotting him out there to get torched, to the tune of 70 appearances. Briefly touted as a possible closer candidate to replace Danny Graves, one look at his peripherals should have dispelled that notion right quick. There are dozens of better bullpen options out there for a similar price.
2003 Itís odd that teams go to great lengths to find lefty getters for their bullpen, but most donít perform similar due diligence to identify righty killers even though right-handed hitters collect 60% of all at-bats. While weíre not pushing for more specialization, Riedling could become a card-carrying member of the Steve Reed Society. Righties have yet to take him deep in the major leagues, compiling a three-year line of .168/.275/.207. He should inherit much of the setup work Scott Williamson leaves behind.
2002 After minor shoulder surgery, Riedling is expected to be ready to return to the majors by May at the latest, and possibly as early as March. However, when the doctors opened him up, they discovered that the damage was more severe than initially expected. When healthy, Riedling can flash dominant breaking stuff and good heat, although he falls in love with his curve. His condition in the spring could affect whether the Reds trade Danny Graves.
2001 John Riedling is a hard thrower who, converted to relief, had the first extended success of his career. If Scott Williamson ends up in the rotation--or Oakland--Reidling would be in line to get his innings. A name to remember.
