Is There Any Hope For: Ryan Wagner?

Ryan Wagner

A new experimental feature today: "Is There Any Hope For?"

Today's victim: Ryan Wagner of the Cincinnati Reds. Is there any hope for him?

I thought he'd be racking up 30-save seasons by now, but command problems and injuries have held him back. I'd like to think he will overcome these issues and turn into the dominant closer that I expected. But he's starting to remind me more and more of Matt Anderson, another college-trained pitcher who also has awesome stuff but never found consistent command.

I'd like to solicit the opinions of Reds fans and others about Wagner. Can he recover? Please contribute in the comments.
