Today’s Dayton Daily News had a couple of interesting notes on Reds pitching.
Luke Hudson claims he’s had no pain for the last few days and expects to be throwing again in two or three days.
Also, Alonzo Powell made the following comments on some of his staff for the upcoming season with the Dayton Dragons:
Manager Alonzo Powell is excited about the prospects of his pitching staff at Class A Dayton this year.
The Dragons will have right-hander Homer Bailey, the Reds’ No. 1 draft pick last June, and right-hander Chris Gruler, the team’s No. 1 draft pick in 2002, who was limited to 11 starts last season due to shoulder problems.
“Gruler has looked good down here,” Powell said, “but remember the name Rafael Gonzalez, our fourth-round pick last year out of the Bronx. He may be more polished than Bailey right now.”
