Essentially 18 starts as the other five were bulk outings piggybacking another starter. I could be wrong but I think he’s moved to a 4 seam fastball ~93-94. Showed a really nice change-up last night.
I'm glad that he's continued to battle, and earned his way up. The AA numbers, hit per IP, a bit more than a K per IP are encouraging a bit. The 10 homers allowed not so much.
Know when he was drafted, he was compared to Erickson as someone that could possibly eat innings, and get a lot of grounders with the 2 seamer.
Where is his velocity currently? Is it sustained?
He's started 13 games this year (18 appearances).
I'd imagine his future is as a reliever right? If everything plays up and he can be a groundball machine, I'd be excited there.
Another J.Johnson would be awesome.
But yeah I think he is ultimately a reliever.
