|Bryan Price impressed with two young pitchers |

(2/21/14) Bryan Price has given glowing reports of the early spring training performances of Reds top pitching prospects Robert Stephenson and Michael Lorenzen.
"It was the first time in person (I saw Stephenson) since he first signed in 2011," Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It was terrific. A lot of times with hard throwers, you expect a lot more physical effort in the delivery. ... Their deliveries are easy. It didn't look like they were putting a ton of effort into throwing the ball and it was jumping out of their hand, exploding at the plate. I was really excited about that."
Stephenson and Lorenzen are both non-roster invitees. Neither has pitched above the Double-A level.
