According to reports from Sarasota. Says Adam Dunn: “He looks really good. Really, really good. I told him that. I don’t know how hard he’s throwing. I can’t gauge that yet. But his ball is moving everywhere.”

If Homer Bailey is sent to AAA, I wouldn’t mind seeing Paul Wilson earn the 5th spot in the rotation. During his time with the Reds, Wilson has basically been a league-average pitcher (or slightly below). And he’s a good guy.

That said, I don’t expect him to win that spot, and I don’t expect that he’s the most talented pitcher that is competing. I still think Kirk Saarloos has the early edge, and rightly so.
