Reds right-handed pitching prospect Carlos Contreras went three strong innings in his 2014 debut.

Contreras pitched three shutout innings, allowing two hits and striking out six in relief of rehabbing starter Mat Latos, who pitched the first four innings. He had a breakout 2013, putting up a 3.47 ERA with 8.3 K/9 across 132 1/3 innings in High-A and Double-A. This is likely the way he will remain on schedule to start again on the correct day, but monitor this situation as Contreras could make an appearance in 2014.
