Greg Reynolds Possibly Getting Called Up

Postby acsguitar » Wed May 07, 2008 7:10 pm

Manager Clint Hurdle banished pitcher Mark Redman to the bullpen today, increasing the likliehood that either prized prospect Greg Reynolds or an acquired pitcher, such as Josh Fogg, will replace him in the rotation Sunday at San Diego.

Redman struggled in Tuesday night's loss to the Cardinals at Coors Field. Hurdle hopes that Redman can rekindle last year's success in the bullpen. However, there remains a possibility he could get cut.

Reynolds started in Triple-A game today for Colorado Springs but went only two innings. He was removed on a short pitch count in order to leave him available for this Sunday's Rockies game. Reynolds is the highest draft pick in Rockies history, in 2006, and has shown much improvement recently with his sinkerball command.


I think he'll get Pwned but some people might care

What are people's thoughts on this guy - worth picking up in an NL only league?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that any pitching prospect with any kind of potential is worth picking up in NL only's...

Haha, well at least we know people won't be rushing to snag him with their waiver priorities with those kind of minor league numbers. I think this guy is worth a shot especially for people w/ shallow rotations, there's really nothing to lose.

You've been busy with Rockies threads today acs. ;-)

Reynolds really got hit around at the start of the season, but has settled down recently and done much better lately. I think he has a lot of potential - probably not an ace, but a solid middle of the rotation guy.

If he did get the start on Sunday, it would be in the best pitcher's park in baseball, Petco Park. I don't think I'd take a chance on him fantasy wise, but as a Rockies fan, I'd be eager to see what he can do. I don't think he can be any worse than Mark Redman at least.

Not a great outing but he looked OK today. He still has top of rotation talent and all Keeper/Dynasty teams need to add him ASAP.

Greg Reynolds took a loss after giving up four runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Padres in his major league debut.
Reynolds struck out one and walked two. Three of the four runs came on homers by Scott Hairston and Khalil Greene. Reynolds will remain in the rotation for the foreseeable future, but he's not a fantasy option.


Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Greg Reynolds from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Reynolds is making his major league debut Sunday against the Padres.


The Rockies will call up Greg Reynolds to make his major league debut in Mark Redman's old rotation spot Sunday.
Reynolds was 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA, 45 H and 16/9 K/BB in 33 1/3 IP for Triple-A Colorado Springs. Those numbers shouldn't inspire much confidence, and while Reynolds is polished enough to potentially hold his own in the majors, he's not likely to be more than an adequate fifth starter this year.

Yea he did a decent job. Basically 1 bad pitch to a slumping Greene. Still 4 runs in Petco is a lot. I like him better then Redman though !+)

once again...Yahoo doesn't add a top-level prospect after pitching a MLB game.
