Reds' Stephenson feels good after live batting practice Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds pitching prospect Robert Stephenson threw 30 pitches in live batting practice Monday and 25 more in the bullpen and reported no issues with his shoulder, MLB.com reports.

"It felt good," Stephenson said.

Stephenson was held back a few days at the start of camp to protect the shoulder, which has been sore at times throughout his minor-league career. He was named the No. 23 overall prospect by Baseball America this offseason a year after ranking 19th.

Stephenson went 7-10 with a 4.75 ERA and 140:74 K:BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings with Double-A Pensacola in 2014.

Reds' Stephenson hoping to make an impact this season
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Reds pitcher Robert Stephenson is hoping to make an impact in the majors this season, according to MLB.com.

Stephenson may not open the year in the majors, but is hoping he arrives sooner rather than later. "My goal by the end of the year is to be in Cincinnati," Stephenson said. "It's your dream growing up as a kid. It would be awesome to be there but at the same time, I want to get to a point where I deserve to be there and belong there."

Stephenson is considered the team's top prospect. He dealt with shoulder issues earlier in camp, but is cleared for action now. 

Manager Bryan Price said Stephenson has a few things to work on, but seemed optimistic about his long-term outlook. With Robert, it's command -- not necessarily throwing strikes, but the quality of the strikes," Price said.

The 22-year-old should start the year in the minors, but could earn a promotion based on how well he pitches.

Reds' Robert Stephenson to be held back a few days
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Reds pitcher Robert Stephenson will be held back a few days, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

The team is holding Stephenson back for precautionary reasons. Robertson has had bouts of shoulder soreness throughout his minor-league career, so the team wants to be sure his shoulder is strong before pushing him. Stephenson is considered the team's top prospect, and should break into the club's rotation at some point this season.
