Stephenson has lowered his ERA to 2.97 to go along with a 85:17 K:BB over 66.2 innings at Low-A Dayton. "I think Robert Stephenson is going to be right up there with the top Minor League arms at the end of the year," Reds director of player development Jeff Graupe told MLB.com. "He's been 96-100 [mph] all spring with two secondary offerings, and he's been striking out guys at an impressive clip without walking anybody, so he's doing a good job of being efficient in the zone with power stuff."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

2013

The Reds' first-round pick in 2011, Stephenson made his professional debut last season and impressed at two levels, striking out a combined 72 batters in 65 innings. The Reds will probably take a deliberate approach with Stephenson, though they're faced with the conundrum of going from an extreme pitcher's park at Low-A Dayton to a hitter's park at High-A Bakersfield. The Reds avoided that with Daniel Corcino, skipping him right from Dayton to Double-A Pensacola, so we'll see if they take that approach here as well.

2012

Stephenson was the Reds' first-round pick in the 2011 June draft. A high school pitcher from California, Stephenson signed late and will make his professional debut in 2012. He's a big right-hander who throws in the mid-90s. The Reds tend to move their high school draftees along slowly, so Stephenson may not even make it to Low-A Dayton this season, barring a stretch of dominance in rookie ball.
