|Profile: There is not much to see from a fantasy perspective for Nefi Ogando. He was waived by the Marlins this winter and acquired by the Reds, but even with the questions the Reds have in the bullpen he is not an option for late innings. Ogando simply does not have the pitching ability to be a late inning reliever, as his strikeout rate is very low and his walk rate rather high. He throws somewhat hard with a 95 mile per hour fastball, but he will need to develop a lot more at age 27 to become a reliable reliever. (Ben Duronio)|
The Quick Opinion: It is difficult to imagine a scenario where Ogando is being picked up by fantasy owners.
