Reds' Robert Stephenson: Competing for rotation spot in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson will compete for the final spot in the Reds' rotation this spring, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

With Anthony DeSclafani, Homer Bailey and Brandon Finnegan entering spring at full strength following injury-plagued seasons and Luis Castillo reprising his role atop the team's rotation, it appears the Reds only have one starting spot to fill this spring. Along with Stephenson, the likes of Sal Romano, Amir Garrett, Tyler Mahle, Michael Lorenzen and Jackson Stephens should also get a look during camp. The 24-year-old appears to be one of the favorites to win the role after compiling a 4.68 ERA and 86 strikeouts in 84.2 innings last season, which included a 5-2 record and 2.74 ERA across his final eight starts.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Fires another strong outing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson allowed two runs (one earned) on four his and two walks through five innings during Friday's loss to the Cubs. He didn't factor into the decision.

Stephenson entered the contest with a 2.87 ERA and 10.8 K/9 through his previous seven starts, so while he failed to strike out a batter and didn't take the win Friday, this was another solid showing. His strong finish was an encouraging development down the stretch for the Reds, and the 24-year-old righty projects to receive some positive fantasy ink leading into the 2018 season.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Takes loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson (5-6) was charged with four runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings in a losing effort against the Red Sox on Saturday. He struck out four and issued two walks.

His own error led to one of the two unearned runs, and he benefitted somewhat from shadows on the field which made it tough on opposing hitters, but this was an encouraging outing nonetheless. The 24-year-old was able to limit the free passes, continuing a trend of improved control in recent starts. Stephenson has allowed five hits or fewer in each of his last five starts, with four of those coming at home. He lines up to face the Cubs at Wrigley Field in his final start of 2017.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Fans eight in win over Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson (5-5) pitched six scoreless innings with eight strikeouts during Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

Stephenson entered with an impressive 3.51 ERA and 11.6 K/9 through his previous five starts, so this was another strong outing from the surging righty. Don't be fooled by his year-long 5.01 ERA and 1.64 WHIP, Stephenson is a player on the rise. Unfortunately, a home start against the Red Sox and a road game against the Cubs are his projected matchups to finish the season. Stephenson is likely best viewed as a risky option for both starts.

Reds' Robert Stephenson: Struggles in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson (4-5) was saddled with the loss Tuesday in St. Louis after allowing six runs (four earned) on five hits with three walks and five strikeouts over three innings.

A lack of command was Stephenson's downfall as usual, with this effort raising his BB/9 to an astronomical 6.1. The constant free passes have limited the 24-year-old righty's ability to work deep into games, as he's lasted just 41 innings in his eight starts this season. Even with a favorable home matchup against the Pirates on tap, Stephenson makes for a risky play in his next start Sunday.
