With Spring Training just around the corner, season preview season is upon us. We will be saturated with player previews, team previews, division previews, league previews, fantasy previews, sneak previews, geek previews, bleak previews, rosy previews, cozy previews, uncomfortable previews, convertible previews, inflatable previews, debatable previews, and just about any other kind of preview you can imagine over the next month or so. Just yesterday, Cliff Corcoran at SI.com released his preview of the NL Central for the upcoming season. It's a good refresher to get you up to date with the goings on around the division, but the most interesting part to me was that he named Daniel Corcino "The Big Prospect" to watch for the Reds:
A small, righthanded starter, the 21-year-old Corcino isn't the Reds' best prospect, but the men above him on the list are either too far away to get invites to major league camp or have already made their major league debuts. Corcino cracked 100 innings for the first time last year while posting a 4.59 K/BB ratio in A-ball, a product of excellent control as well as the ability to miss bats. Corcino gets his fastball into the mid-90s, but not without considerable effort, given his 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame, which makes some wonder if he'll end up in the bullpen, as his ability to hold up under a starter's workload with that approach is in doubt.
