Based on the scouting reports I've read, he can run his two-seamer up to 94. He generally sits comfortably in the 92 range, which is more than enough to get MLB hitters out. What has scouts excited are his command of the fastball and the movement it has.
I really like him and expect him to shoot up our prospect rankings this season.
hes on the smaller side but his delivery is effortless which bodes well for him remaining a starter long term
if he was more of a max effort guy, id agree w/ you but in some ways his easy delivery would suggest that he may have the best chance of remaining a starter out of anyone in our minor league system not named wheeler or syndergaard

he already largely has
his change up and slider both project as above average pitches and has excellent control of both...
"He is on the small side, which may ultimately lead him into a bullpen role."
You know, to me, that statement is one of the biggest mistakes that organizations make. If a pitcher is a starter and has great stuff, why change them? Let them start and if they turn out to be great starters for only 7/10 years, so be it.
That is still better than bringing them in for an inning at the time for 12 years.
If he can go 219-100, with 2.93 over 18 seasons who cares?
