Cincinnati Reds: Hunter Greene’s next Dayton Dragons start is being skipped


Cincinnati Reds fans wanting to see Hunter Greene pitch in Dayton again are going to have to wait an extra few days. 

The Dragons announced Monday afternoon the 2017 first-round pick’s next scheduled will be May 12. 

His scheduled Tuesday night start will be skipped, “for the purpose of keeping his total number of pitches for the season below a desired number.”

The 18-year-old was on a 65-pitch limit in his last home start, an April 28 outing in which he allowed four runs and six hits in two innings. He walked two and struck out five while throwing 60 pitches that afternoon. 

His most-recent start was May 3 at Burlington, where he was pulled after 1.2 innings and 55 pitches. Greene gave up two runs on three hits in that game but walked four and struck out only one. 

On the season, he has pitched 9.2 innings in five starts, strikeout out 18 with 10 walks. His ERA is 13.97. 

Greene has allowed two runs or more in four of his five starts as the Reds slowly bring him along in his first full season of pro ball.

In his first two starts, Greene allowed two runs, walked one and struck out 11 in 5.1 innings. 

Since then, the California native has allowed 13 runs in 4.1 innings while walking nine and striking out seven in three starts. 

Austin Orewiler will start in Greene’s place on Tuesday night at Fifth Third Field against Cedar Rapids.
