Kid was a dynamic power hitter in college and has obviously not been able to produce as a pitcher. Isn't it time to move him back to 1st base in Winston-Salem or Kannapolis and get him regular at bats and see how he does?

He just isn't going to make it at this level as a pitcher.

I thought he had some sort of injury that hindered him from swinging a bat like he used to. Not sure how that worked when he was up with the Pirates.
