CINCINNATI -- Daniel Corcino sat on the bench in the Reds' dugout listening to Johnny Cueto. One Dominican pitcher who is getting his first taste of the big leagues was just trying to soak in what his elder countryman, who is having as dominant a season as any Cincinnati pitcher in half a century, had to say.
Corcino is like so many other young players for the Reds this September...

The Milwaukee Brewers were a first-place club for 150 days, and sizable NL Central lead at the beginning of July seemed as if it would be plenty for them to at least get into the playoffs after a two-year absence.
Now, they'll need what amounts to a September miracle.

Last night Daniel Corcino stepped in to make a spot start for Mat Latos (bone bruise) on short notice. The 23-year-old right hande needed just 79 pitches to get through 6.0 innings before exiting the game. He allowed two runs on two hits, a walk and he struck out four Brewers.
The start came a full week after his last appearance on September 5th, so he had plenty of rest to work...
CINCINNATI -- It was spring training of 2010 and Cincinnati Reds legendary pitcher Mario Soto, now a special assistant to the general manager, was seated on a black leather couch in the middle of clubhouse.
Seated next to Soto was a young kid wearing a Reds uniform. A bat boy? A ball boy?
Soto called a writer over to the couch and said, "I'd like you to meet Daniel Corcino...

Now we see a trend starting to develop with another pitcher at four: Daniel Corcino. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound, right hander was signed as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2008. In 2011, he jumped onto the scene pitching for Dayton and...
Daniel Corcino came into the 2012 season as arguably the Reds top pitching prospect after a strong 2011 year with Dayton. The Reds pushed him aggressively and skipped him over High-A Bakersfield and straight to Double-A Pensacola where he spent his entire season as an anchor in the Blue Wahoos rotation.
April didn’t start off particularly strong as Corcino allowed 3 runs in just...
