Reds place top prospect Robert Stephenson on DL

(6/14/2013) The Reds have placed top prospect Robert Stephenson on the minor-league disabled list, MiLB.com reports.
Stephenson injured his hamstring while running between starts. His stock has only risen this season -- he owns a 2.97 ERA with a brilliant 85 strikeouts against 17 walks over 66 2/3 innings at Double-A Dayton. Baseball America ranked him behind just Billy Hamilton among Reds' prospects before the season, saying he "has all the ingredients to become a frontline starter."
It's unclear how long Stephenson will be out, but the injury was diagnosed as a "strain" and is not expected to be serious.
