Bender was selected in the 27th round of the 2010 draft by the Reds. Bender, a Cincinnati native, made it as high as four games in Triple-A at the end of the 2015 season. However, he started the season on the Double-A 60-day DL. Bender ended the 2015 season strong, with four appearances with Triple-A Louisville. In those, he posted a 0.87 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP. Louisville was the third level that Bender touched in the season, but even with the success, he needed much more seasoning in Double-A. This is why he was set to begin the season there. Bender works in the low-90s with the fastball and has a solid curve to compliment it.
