Scouting Report on Cincinnati Reds Ps, Cs Heading into Spring Training

Homer Bailey, along with the other Cincinnati starters, will be expected to build on a brilliant 2012 campaign.

The pitching staff was the strength of the 2012 Cincinnati Reds, and they only got stronger as they prepare for next season.

Spring Training is a mere 14 days away. Pitchers and catchers are getting ready to report, so it's time to see what's in store for the upcoming season.

Great starting pitching was the key to last year's division title, but the "Nasty Boys 2.0" helped close the door in relief. Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Homer Bailey are all coming off the best seasons of their young careers.

Aroldis Chapman will grab the headlines as he tries to become a starter, but the rest of the staff should not be overlooked.

With the way the offense struggled to consistently put up big numbers, the Reds will need the starters to repeat their 2012 performance.

Now that it's a more experienced team in 2013, the pitchers and catchers are looking to continue to be among the league's best.
