Nice write up on Logan Ondrusek from Mark Sheldon:
Reliever Logan Ondrusek came into Reds Spring Training expecting a sample-sized first taste of big league camp followed by a perfunctory meeting in the manager’s office to be sent down.
However, Ondrusek’s time has been super-sized to a level befitting of his 6-foot-8 body. And that meeting with manager Dusty Baker and pitching coach Bryan Price to get his Minor League papers? It has yet to happen.
That’s because with 7 1/3 scoreless innings over five games this spring, the 25-year-old Ondrusek’s chances of making the 25-man roster remain very much alive.
“He’s definitely wedged himself into our consciousness, that’s for sure,” Price said. “He’s had a terrific spring.”
“He’s pitching with as much confidence as anybody of the young guys in camp,” Price said. “It’s not just the stuff, it’s the confidence, the repetition of quality pitches. He holds runners well and he’s very athletic for a 6-8 guy. He gets around the mound well and fields well.”
Nice article on Logan…so, what do you think? Can he force his way into the Opening Day bullpen or is he destined for Louisville to start the season?
