Have to like the year-to-year progression.
Obviously walks have increased vs the absurdity he posted in the Sally League 2 years ago, but not bad by any means. Still getting some k's, less than a hit per ip. Clearly has an understanding of what he's trying to do. Seems like a guy with high pitchability.
He also seems like a guy who is what he is.
He has thrown a lot of innings and has pitched well at all levels.
I don’t know that I buy into him being a good ML starter or not but I do buy into the idea that he is as ready as he likely ever will be.
I don’t think he needs to go to AAA to prove anything there but they could move him there any time if they want.
