6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, Win
Season Stats: 2-1, 3.12 ERA, 26 IP, 21 H, 9 ER, 8 BB, 41 K in 5 starts 
  • After earning a UTR-Pitcher of the Day on April 23rd, where he turned in a career-high 11 K’s, Moss follows up with another strong start. Moss was a 4th round selection out of baseball power University of Florida in 2016. He’s an enigma, being a high draft pick in that only pitched 23 collegiate innings. He hit the Reds radar after throwing six shutout innings against LSU during the SEC Tourney. The 6′ 5″- 215 lb. lefty possesses raw tools highlighted by a 95 mph fastball.

Sodders has 19 strikeouts in 11 innings over his last two starts. He doesn’t overpower hitters with swing-and-miss stuff, but with pin-point control of a 88-92 mph fastball and developing changeup.
