We talked recently about the sentiment that Brad Boxberger may be in the mix for the Opening Day bullpen. Thanks to our friends over at Redlegs Review, I see that ESPN’s Keith Law is on the same page:
“I expect to see Cincinnati Reds right-hander Brad Boxberger in their big league pen in 2012; he was 90-94 with a hard curveball at 81-84. Right-handed hitters will have a hard time picking up the ball because he comes slightly across his body. I’d like to see even a show-me change-up just so left-handers, who hit him better than righties did this year but still didn’t hit him well, don’t take too much advantage of his delivery.”
I really look forward to seeing this kid.
