Looking back at the first start for RHP Keyvius Sampson

On Sunday afternoon the Cincinnati Reds sent right handed pitcher Keyvius Sampson to the mound to make his first big league start and only his second big league appearance overall. He had thrown an inning out of the bullpen a few days earlier, but seeing a lineup a few times through is a very different task. The start against the Pirates produced this line: 5IP, 3H, 3ER, 1BB, 6K...

The (Almost) Forgotten Men

At first glance it might not look like Keyvius Sampson and Rymer Liriano have much in common. A right handed pitcher and right fielder, respectively, their tracks up the prospect ranks would not normally be compared and their eventual promotion to the major league level would not seem to coincide.
