The Cincinnati Reds' bullpen has overcome injuries to earn a grade of B- early in the 2014 season, thanks mainly to the timely return of current closer Jonathan Broxton. The bullpen has been solid overall in the absence of established closer Aroldis Chapman and lefty specialist Sean Marshall, but poor showings by J.J. Hoover and Trevor Bell have cost the Reds games.
Fresh into his six-year, 5 million extension, Cincinnati Reds homegrown starter Homer Bailey has been awful enough in 2014 to earn a flat-out grade of F.
With a 2.60 ERA after his first three starts this year, Cincinnati Reds' southpaw Tony Cingrani has picked up where he left off last year and earns a grade of A for his efforts so far in 2014.
Scrappy Mike Leake has battled his way to two wins in his first three starts of 2014 and has posted a 2.95 ERA in just over 21 innings to earn his grade of A.
Alfredo Simon has been spectacular replacing injured starter Mat Latos. He has surrendered just two earned runs in 21 innings and won two of his three starts to earn an absolute A+.
Cincinnati Reds' ace Johnny Cueto hurled a shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his fourth start of the year and has produced a sparkling 1.50 ERA in 30 innings for his grade of A+.
