Reds RHP prospect Nick Travieso spun five hitless innings Tuesday in a win for High-A Daytona.
It was only Travieso's second start since coming off the disabled list. He struck out four while allowing just two walks. Travieso doesn't have enough innings to qualify, but if he did, his 2.82 ERA would be seventh-lowest in the Florida State League. Tuesday marked Travieso's first victory since May 29.

Reds right-handed pitching prospect Nick Travieso struck out four batters over six shutout innings for Low-A Dayton on Friday.

Travieso only allowed one hit (a single), but he walked five batters in the outing. He induced three double plays, which allowed for the scoreless outing. Travieso is known for his above-average command, and he did not have his best stuff on Friday night. His average pitches and above-average command give him the potential to be a solid innings-eating No. 4 pitcher, and he could be up as soon as late-2016.

Reds right-handed pitching prospect Nick Travieso threw six shutout innings for Low-A Dayton on Wednesday, scattering three hits and two walks while fanning five.

With the exception of two complete clunkers, Travieso has pitched very well in the Midwest League in 2014. He employs his above-average command and average pitch arsenal to stay ahead of batters, but his worst outings tend to come when he is struggling to throw strikes. Travieso projects as a back of the rotation innings-eater, and could be in the major leagues in late-2016.

Reds right-handed pitching prospect Nick Travieso allowed seven hits over 6 1/3 innings, walking one batter and striking out two for Low-A Dayton.

Travieso is having a solid, but not spectacular season in the Midwest League, using his low-90s fastball, average curve ball, and spotty change up to put up a 3.17 ERA and a 1.006 WHIP over 11 starts. Opposing batters are hitting just .220/.266/.300 against him. Travieso has above-average command but lacks an out pitch, and is a back of the rotation option.

The Reds have reached a contract agreement with first-round pick RHP Nick Travieso.

Travieso gets a signing bonus of $2 million, which is actually south of the recommended slot value for the 14th overall pick. The 18-year-old right-hander should get his professional career underway later this summer in some form of rookie ball.

MLB's Jonathan Mayo reports that the Reds will officially sign first-round pick Nick Travieso on Wednesday.

Travieso, a hard-throwing high school pitcher out of Miami, will receive a $2 million bonus, which is a bit under the recommended slot value of $2.375 million for the 14th overall pick. The Reds have also agreed to terms with second-round pick Tanner Rahier, a shortstop out of Southern California. He's set to receive a $649,700 bonus.
Tue, Jun 12, 2012 04:10:00 PM's Mark Sheldon reports that the Reds are "pretty close" to an agreement with Nick Travieso.

Travieso was selected 14th overall in last week's MLB Amateur Draft. The 18-year-old right-hander from Florida will fly to Cincy at some point soon for a physical. "I think we’re just trying to finish up a couple things, hopefully sometime this week," said Reds GM Walt Jocketty.

The Reds selected high-school RHP Nick Travieso with the No. 14 pick in the 2012 draft.

Some might consider this a reach, but the Reds clearly love talented, power arms and that's precisely what Travieso is. The prep from Florida's favorite player is Roger Clemens and the youngster flings heat like his idol. Travieso can reach the high-90's and has the potential to develop two plus secondary pitches. But therein lies the rub: Travieso will have to develop a pair of complements to his nasty fastball or iron out his control, or he'll be destined for the bullpen. If he can't do either, he's going to wash out.
