Badenhop won't likely be the Reds' set-up man, even though he's got a decent track record and is pitching well this spring, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "I think he's that situational guy when you need that ground ball because he's so good and adept at that situation," manager Bryan Price said.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Badenhop made a career-high 70 appearances for Boston in 2014, posting the best ERA of any Red Sox reliever who pitched at least 30 innings. He's a sinkerball pitcher that doesn't generate a lot of strikeouts and won't be used in high-leverage situations, but he's been a quality arm out of the bullpen and he induces a ton of groundballs. He became a free agent in the offseason and will certainly draw attention. The Red Sox are interested in bringing him back and the feeling is mutual. His two best years have come when pitching for teams in the murderous AL East, indicating something about the right-hander's makeup. Regardless of where he ends up pitching this season, he'll be counted on to work out of jams with runners on base in the late innings, but Badenhop is a long shot to earn anything more than the occasional save.

2014

Badenhopís last two seasons were nearly carbon copies, but they were also the best two of his career. Badenhop doesnít possess the stuff to be a dominant late-inning pitcher, but he does a good job keeping the ball in the park, with a career rate of 0.7 HR/9. Badenhop has become a reliable middle reliever, and he will fill that role with his new team after being acquired from the Brewers during the offseason.

2013

Acquired in a minor offseason trade from the Marlins, Badenhop proved to be a valuable addition to the Rays' bullpen. He used his sinking pitches to induce groundballs at a 1.17 GB/FB rate. He was quite the workhorse in 2012, appearing in 66 games and finishing with a career-low ERA of 3.03. The Brewers acquired Badenhop in December, and the 6-foot-5 righty will likely retain a similar role with his new team in 2013, working as part of the bridge to closer John Axford.

2012

Badenhop once again bounced back and forth between a major league long-relief job with the Marlins and Triple-A in 2011. Thanks to his extreme groundball tendencies, Badenhop can mitigate the effects of free passes (3.39 BB/9IP), while providing a viable late-inning option when a double play is needed. Dealt cross-state to the Rays, he and his sinker could find things tougher going in the AL East, so don't expect him to be much more than a depth arm for the Tampa Bay bullpen.

2011

A rough May aside, Badenhop had another solid season in the Marlins' middle relief corps. The key number for him is 2.05, his GB/FB ratio. As long as his sinker his sinking he can be effective, and the departure of Dan Uggla's mediocre defense at second base could even be a slight boon for him.

2010

Badenhop rode his sinker to some major league success last season, bumping up his K/9IP rate and reducing his BB/9IP rate while still posting a solid G/F ratio of 1.93. He could get a shot at a rotation job in the spring, but more likely the Marlins will bring him back to soak up innings as a long reliever. And if Dan Uggla's cast-iron glove at second base gets upgraded behind him, so much the better for his numbers.

2009

The Marlins pressed Badenhop and his sinker into service out of desperation in the first half of the season, but his inability to control it led to some ugly outings before a bulging disc in his neck put him out of his misery. With Florida's rotation now healthier and the next wave of prospects hitting the big leagues, Badenhop's window to prove himself as a big league starter has probably closed, but a potential groundball machine like him will always get another shot in the bullpen.
