What to expect from Tony Santillan in his Reds debut on Sunday

Tony Santillan will be taking the mound on Sunday for the Cincinnati Reds. The 2015 2nd round draft pick will be making his Major League debut against the Colorado Rockies as he steps into the rotation to fill the spot vacated by right-handed starter Sonny Gray as he recovers from a right groin strain.

After pitching at the alternate site in 2020, the Reds promoted Tony Santillan to Triple-A Louisville this year when the minor league season began on May 4th. The recently turned 24-year-old came out of the gate with 4.0 innings of 1-unearned run baseball, no walks, and he struck out seven batters against Columbus.
