(BG from Sea)
|The Reds ace is a bit of a personal favorite, so I'm going to try to restrain myself. I think his stuff is electric and this season has been a huge positive development. It's possible new Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson has helped him find a consistent approach that will eliminate some of the inconsistencies that tripped him up for stretches of previous seasons.
That said, he's still very reliant on that changeup and on getting hitters to swing at things they absolutely shouldn't. Perhaps a cop-out, but I'll say he's an ace (a top 15-20 starter in the game) in several seasons, but maybe not locked into that status. (Zach Crizer)
