Dude didn't have an ounce of control, though.
He had that freakish no-no going one time with like 7 walks and 125 pitches through 7 innings or something. He had a nasty curve or slider that would simply buckle guys when it was on and he could hit 96 on the gun.

I only recall seeing him pitch a few times before the injury, but I thought he was a can't miss pitcher at one point.
