Read a scouting report on him from 2007. FB sits 93-94 and can touch 97. Good changeup...curveball was fringe so he started throwing a cutter.

Maybe he can be something....but it's off to Vegas for now.

Come on coaches. Turn him into a stud and make us look like geniuses.

Depth can't hurt.

That scouting report would be when he was 21, so at only 26, if he can still hit 97 with a great change up [I say great only because since that report he's had 5 years to work on good to great] screams of relief guy! You just never know!

But agree its Vegas for now! If he can make it there he can make it anywhere! :)
