Video: Hunter Greene training with Trevor Bauer
A couple of top pitchers in the Cincinnati Reds organization are working with each other.
Hunter Greene, who was the No. 2 overall pick by the Reds in the 2017 MLB Draft, shared a video on Twitter Saturday that showed him working with Trevor Bauer, whom the Reds acquired in a trade last year.
Very productive last 2 days w/ @BauerOutage trying to perfect these secondary pitches. Blessed to be able to use this time to learn from a great player and a great person. We are both itching to get back to competing on the mound! Check out the movement below pic.twitter.com/cKQZqHHr26

Greene is from Los Angeles and went to high school in Sherman Oaks, not too far from where Bauer grew up and played high school ball. Bauer was the No. 3 pick in the 2011 draft.
Bauer is known for his creative, outside-the-box type of training methods that are now becoming more widespread throughout baseball.
In addition to this showing Greene working on improving his craft, the video is a good sign of the youngster’s rehab progress. Greene missed all of last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and is working his way back. The 20-year-old pitcher is known for a blazing fastball that can reach 102 mph.
