Has to be one of the most underrated SP this season. No one talks about his season and he was even snubbed from the ASG. He also pitched well over 147 innings last season and 2014 looked like a breakout season yet it seems everyone outside of Cleveland ignores the guy.
Was he highly rated as a prospect? I thought I remember him being a C+/B- type guy, but I'm not sure.
He came out of nowhere almost, 29th prospect of the Padres in 2007 then 26th for the Indians in 2010. Average at best stats in the minors, he kinda found his way in the minors in 2012(ranked 12th best prospect in the International League) and then what we saw last year with the Indians in the majors.
a 4th rounder who was never a top 100 spec with a career 4.42 minor league ERA
He started throwing a 2-seamer in 2012 and his career really took off from there. He's always had a great arsenal of pitches and gets above average swing and miss rates on everything he throws now. But his 4-seamer would get pounded.
