Cincinnati Reds top prospect Hunter Greene, billed as a two-way player when the club originally drafted him, feels more comfortable on the mound than he does in the field or at the plate, according to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The Reds notably selected Greene with the second overall pick of the 2017 MLB June Amateur Draft. “There’s a different type of confidence when I’m at the mound, different than at the plate or shortstop,” said Greene. “Getting on the mound is a lot easier for me. I think getting on the mound is a lot more natural, too.” Greene also feels that it’s a grind to play in the field everyday, and the fact that he is roommates with shortstop Jeter Downs helps him see that more clearly.
