“Hunter Greene has the potential to be up there with the best pitchers of all time” – Twitter reacts to Cincinnati Reds rookie sensation rolling over the Arizona Diamondbacks lineup

Starting pitcher Hunter Greene is a bright light on a dismal Cincinnati Reds team. Althought they’ve been turning it around lately, the Reds are still one of the league’s worst teams. They own an 18-35 record.

Greene’s statistics aren’t pretty, but his potential is. The 22-year-old out of Los Angeles, California, has been touted as one of MLB’s future stars since he was playing in high school. He touches triple-digit velocity on a regular basis and has a wicked slider with a high put-away rate.

Tonight, he’s pitching against the Arizona Diamondbacks. At the time of writing, Greene’s thrown five innings of one-hit baseball with seven strikeouts. Twitter is buzzing as Greene is displaying dominance that could become consistent in the future. Here are some of the best reactions.

Greene’s got velocity and movement. This user broke it down a bit.

Hunter Greene stuff is so nasty. Idk if anyone was watching this game. His pitches are all ++ stuff. Elite movement on the slider. It totally disappears at about 15’ from the plate. If he can limit walks for his career, he will be lethal and a top 10 pitcher in #MLB #Reds

Greene’s biggest problem is one he shares with many other young pitchers — he lacks consistency. If he can get it under control, he will become elite.

Every start from Hunter Greene is either a shutdown or meltdown and there is zero middle ground in those outcomes.
