Robert Stephenson – RHP

Stephenson was the 27th pick in the first round by the Reds out of high school and has developed into the top prospect in the organization since. He has the ability to hit the mid-90s consistently with the fastball as a starter and has really polished his stuff at the upper levels. Stephenson also works with a strong curve and is developing a changeup that has become serviceable. Command has never really been an issue for Stephenson, as you see with some young hard throwers. Stephenson just turned 23 in February and certainly has time on his side. Each level has come with a slight adjustment period for Stephenson, so being eased into the big leagues in 2016 could aid him.
