Daniel Corcino: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Corcino is one of the Reds' top-three pitching prospects (the others being Tony Cingrani and Robert Stephenson), with perhaps the highest ceiling. He drew comparisons to Johnny Cueto in spring training based on his pitching style and birthplace. Corcino skipped High-A last year, going straight to Double-A at age 21, and posted a 3.01 ERA with a 126:65 K:BB over 143.1 innings. The Reds are unlikely to get 30 starts from each of their five starters again in 2013, and if Corcino holds his own at Triple-A, he could be the first to get a look in the event of an injury.
Corcino dominated at Low-A Dayton in 2011, striking out 156 batters in 139.1 innings with his three-pitch repertoire (92-94 mph fastball, slider and change-up). A 21-year-old out of the Dominican, Corcino is probably the Reds' best starting pitching prospect that hasn't yet tasted the major leagues, aside from maybe last year's first-round draft pick Robert Stephenson. If he can survive pitching in the offensive-fueled environment of the High-A California League, the Reds may have another find on their hands.
