Who is this guy? I've just heard of him. Anyone know anything about him or where he is?

He's a big tall lefty who throws hard and has gotten killed this year. The minor league guys will provide more info. I just saw him in ST.

I saw Wes play quite a few times in the last year or so between the AFL(Scottsdale Stadium is just a hop skip and a jump from my place) and ST. He actually didnt throw that hard from the times I saw him, more like 87-92 most of the time. He came in rather raw as a pitcher, as he was also a pretty good OF prospect out of college, and was trying to throw too many pitches, rather than refine certain ones that suited his delivery. Last year he started to eliminate that problem, and had a pretty good year, this year he took a big step back as far as numbers are concerned. I didnt see any of him in the regular season, so I don't really know what plagued him, perhaps concentrating a couple pitches trying to round himself out, or it could have been just a bad season.
