Brian Hunter – RHP

The Reds originally drafted Hunter in the ninth round of the 2014 draft out of Hartford. After two consecutive strong seasons out of the bullpen, Hunter started the 2016 season on the DL with Low-A Dayton, where he was returning for his second season at the level. In college, Hunter started as a catcher, but he was utilized mainly as a starter after becoming a pitcher, but transitioned to a reliever at the pro level. Hunter has seen spells where his command has left him, but overall not terrible. With that, he is a high strikeout arm, picking up 10.1 and 11.3 K/9 in 2014 and ’15. Hunter works with a low-90s sinker and slider combination.
