2015 Reds, 1990 Score style: J.J. Hoover @JJ_Hoover

009 JJ Hoover

I had high hopes for J.J. Hoover entering the 2014 season. In his first two big league seasons, he pitched marvelously, appearing in 97 games and posting a 2.61 ERA. But in 2014, it seemed as though Hoover couldn’t catch a break, and ended up with a 4.88 ERA to go along with a 1-10 record in relief. He was not the only pitcher to struggle out of the bullpen, but there are plenty of other young arms that could take his place if he doesn’t turn it around. Hopefully he lives up to the promise of those first two seasons and helps the Reds’ relief corps return to form in 2015.
