The Call-Up: Amir Garrett

3

Jeffrey Paternostro and Eric Roseberry

From the Red Storm to the Red Legs.

The Situation: The Reds found themselves without Homer Bailey and Anthony Desclafani, the former due to bone chips, the latter to an elbow sprain. Cincinnati decided to press some of their young prospect arms into service, and Amir Garrett—their top pitching prospect—will get the ball every fifth day at the back of the Redlegs rotation.

The Background: The Reds drafted Garrett in the 22nd round of the 2011 draft, but gave him a cool million bucks as part of a two-sport deal that also allowed him to play basketball at St. John’s. As you’d expect, he moved rather slowly through the Cincinnati system, not getting an extended full-season ball assignment until 2014, while playing 20+ minutes a game as a swingman for the Red Storm in the offseason. Since he started focusing fully on baseball, Garrett’s stuff and performance ticked up and posted sub-3.00 ERAs the last two years, striking out nearly a batter an inning. He will turn 25 in a month, but there may be more improvements yet to come considering how late he came to baseball full-time.

Late last May, Zach Vincej’s career was on life support. He’d turned 25 years old a few weeks earlier and was playing for the Reds’ Double-A affiliate in Pensacola—or, worse and more accurately, not playing for them.

Rubbing Mud: Dan Straily's Maybe Changing Two-Seamer

1

Matthew Trueblood

Traded from the Reds to the Marlins, Dan Straily is an example of how new pitching data can help change a repertoire.

For nerdy baseball fans, the worst trade of the offseason was the Reds’ swap of Dan Straily to the Marlins. That’s not because there was an especially egregious mismatch in value in the deal; it was because the move separated Straily from the Reds’ beat reporters.

Just before being dealt, Straily spent almost an hour on a podcast with Zach Buchanan, one of the Reds writers for the Cincinnati Enquirer (and author of the Reds chapter in this year's Baseball Prospectus Annual). It was a delightful listening experience: wide-ranging but detailed, relaxed, smart. They talked about hunting and (ironically) what it’s like to be blindsided by a trade. My favorite discussion centered on the trip to Driveline Baseball from which Straily had returned just before the interview.

Hal Steinbrenner asked a question without really wanting to know the answer.

I made a mistake: I thought about this from the player’s perspective. I thought about the player. Or perhaps, I thought about it as mostly mattering with respect to individual players, as mostly serving to modify their behavior. On Thursday, Hal Steinbrenner reminded me of my error.

The Reds' relievers set a record, the Giants' blow another late lead, and two starters elsewhere don't let their teammates get anywhere near the mound.

The Monday Takeaway

The Reds came into their series opener against the Cubs having allowed 239 home runs on the season, two shy of the dubious major-league record held by the 1996 Tigers. To avoid breaking it, the team that had surrendered 1.6 long balls per game would need to keep the opposition to two, total, over the next 13.
