The 2022 season has been forgettable for the Cincinnati Reds.

They are 56-86, 30 games under the .500 mark and with no hope of making the playoffs.

However, they have given their young players a platform to showcase their talent and audition for a long-term role at the club.

One of those young players is Nick Lodolo.

The young left-handed pitcher continues to show why the Reds had to pick him in the top ten in the 2019 MLB Draft in order to get his services.

“Nick Lodolo is the first Red and fourth LZ in the MLB since 1901 with 11+ strikeouts and 0 walks in consecutive starts. (h/t @jluckhaupt),” the team tweeted Wednesday afternoon after kickoff.

Lodolo has turned the second half around for the rojillos

Lodolo allowed three runs and struck out 11 in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The most impressive part of his outing is that his stuff generated a whopping 16 swings and misses.

Having two straight walkless starts and 11 strikeouts is pretty impressive, particularly for a rookie.

Pundits say a pitcher’s BB/K ratio is perhaps the best indicator of future success.

If a pitcher is able to limit self-inflicted damage through walks and get out of trouble with a lot of strikeouts, he’ll be well positioned to have a good career.

Since the second half began, the freshman southpaw has a 2.95 ERA and a 75/18 K/BB ratio in 61 innings.

The Boston Red Sox are next on the schedule for him as he tries to improve on his already impressive 3.78 ERA.

Lodolo is a big part of the Reds’ future in the rotation, and he’s proven in 81 innings that he belongs.
