Reds' Robert Stephenson: Strong Triple-A outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson was fantastic Wednesday for Triple-A Louisville, allowing two runs over 7.2 innings, striking out eight while not allowing a walk, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Zach Buchanan reports.

Stephenson had struggled some with his control with Louisville prior to this outing, having allowed 12 walks over 18.2 innings. The Reds passed him and Cody Reed over when they called up Luis Castillo in part because of their respective control issues. There's a reasonable chance he'll be back up with the Reds, as a starter even, later on this season with continued progress.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Stephenson will head back to Louisville after compiling an 8.03 ERA and 27:16 K:BB over 24.2 innings of relief with the big club. The former first-round pick worked primarily as a starter before this season, so it's possible that he will be stretched back out as a starter with Louisville.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Return to starting still possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson might get sent down to Triple-A Louisville later this season to get stretched out as a starter, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon speculates.

This doesn't appear to be imminent, and in fact Sheldon's comment was spurred by a reader question. But this isn't a surprise, given Stephenson's draft pedigree and usage in the minors. He's coming off of a rough relief outing in Milwaukee, having given up five runs (four earned) over two-thirds of an inning Tuesday.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Strong relief performance Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson pitched three innings in relief of Brandon Finnegan on Saturday, allowing just one run on a Eric Thames homer. He struck out five, walked one and allowed three hits.

Stephenson came up big after Finnegan pitched just one inning Saturday. Right now there's no talk of moving Stephenson back to the rotation after Finnegan hit the DL, but Stephenson had two good outings this week after a bumpy debut. The Reds would prefer for him to continue his development in this fashion if possible.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Struggles with control
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson made his 2017 debut Saturday against the Cardinals and allowed four runs on a whopping six walks (one intentional) over 1.2 innings. Reds manager Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Stephenson's control problems were due to a return of bad habits with his delivery.

About the only good that came out of Stephenson's outing was that four outs were recorded via strikeouts, indicating that he has good stuff. But he threw 33 balls as opposed to 26 strikes. The Reds will continue to keep him in low leverage situations until he can considerably improve his command.
