Something wrong with him? With him pitching like this, I think the Reds might be stuck with Belise for awhile.
After one bad start we're asking if something is wrong with him? The 4/25 and 5/5 starts were not that bad, with a K per inning each game. 3 BB's per game is obviously not desirable, but happens quite often, and to top ranked big league pitchers. IMO he pitched well enough to win both of those games, which is what you look for out of your starter. And those games were separated by an excellent outing on April 30, with 10 K and 2 BB. And regardless, its not like Belisle is putting up anything that resembles MLB numbers. The guy is a scrub. I reiterate, an encouraging sign from Bailey is his much improved control and higher K rate, striking out 41 versus 14 BB's.
