MK April 10, 2019 Wondering about Michael Beltre and Chad Tromp as well. Doug Gray April 10, 2019 I know a lot of things about him. Still with the Reds. Dinged up. MK April 10, 2019 Should have mentioned it yesterday but didn’t. Is Michael Byrne another example of the Reds trying to make a college reliever into a starter? That has worked so wonderfully in the past with Cingrani, Johnson, Lorenzen, etc. Matthew O'Neal April 10, 2019 Not to mention Brandon Finnegan. RobL April 10, 2019 Finnegan was a starter in college. RobL April 10, 2019 Byrne was going to be a starter this year at Florida. In order to sign him, they had to agree to let him start. He gets to start until he fails. And the Reds get an arm that had a lot of success in the SEC.
