Wondering if he projects as a starter or to the pen, and how long it will take him to reach the higher levels of the system.
Petricka supposedly has a very good fastball and can pump it up near 100. He also has a decent curve and a serviceable change. He's somewhat inconsistent and doesn't repeat his mechanics though. The aforementioned reasons are why some think he's destined for the pen. He's still very projectable, and KG falls in love with guys like that. With the lack of decent SP prospects, I'd imagine he keeps starting for the immediate future.
