He's definitely a pitcher to watch next spring and might make his way up to Chicago sometime next season if all goes well.
Agreed. It's pretty common to see a drop in game velocity when you first come back from pretty much any kind of arm surgery. Luckily enough he still has a pretty high ceiling even if he doesn't quite pump 102 anymore.
