That write up was prior to TJ surgery in July 2012, looks like he tried to come back in the 2nd half of this year but didn't go well. The evaluation in Baseball America says he has a Dynamic curveball, a 2 seam fastball with late life (Prior to TJS) that brushed 90mph. Solid change and flashed a cutter as well. Supposed to have great mound presence and good control.....he was rated as the 25th best prospect going into 2013 (because of the TJS).
Solid pick up for nothing....
