…a big breakout year for him, so he’s a good guy to cover. Very impressive command, approach, and composure, all those little things the scouts love that tend to project favorably. The stuff was also impressive on one look despite a smallish frame, with a 91-93 mph fastball, flashing an above-average to plus breaking ball and good feel for a change that flashed above-average. He’s the real deal and I’m glad I’m seeing him now since he shouldn’t be in the FSL very long.
