Mike Leake SP CIN Jul 07 '78
Mike Leake told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that he realizes he is on the bubble for the playoff roster.
Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo, and Homer Bailey are all ahead of Leake on the depth chart, the decision will come down to whether the Reds want to carry him as a reliever. "I really don't know yet. They haven't said anything," said Leake. "I can make assumptions, but they wouldn't be 100 percent accurate. I know I haven't deserved a spot to be one of the four [starters], but I feel I can still help." Leake has a 4.73 ERA and 113/38 K/BB ratio in 173 innings over 29 starts this season.
