Having seen all of his starts, 2 in person, and 1 of which I was 3 rows from the field behind the edge of the left net behind the plate I feel like I have pretty good standing to be giving an opinion on Healthy Wang...
Good stuff with a fastball that gets the job done but doesn't blow anyone away (93 consistently).
Slightly herky jerky with his hesitation delivery at the top of his delivery that seems to disrupt some batters' rhythm allowing him to sneak his fastball by them.
He has tremendous command and doesn't walk many.
Poised and confident beyond his age and doesn't get rattled.
Movement on most pitches.
His fastball gets a nice fat portion of the plate more often than I like to see and can sometimes be real straight and for batters who are looking for it and don't get thrown off on his hesitation, he will get taken deep quite a bit...
His biggest asset in my mind is his ability to completely disregard what happens to him and focus on the task at hand. It seems like if he gives up a bomb or someone really drives one off him he just doesn't care. He's the opposite of RJ in that way.
I think he is a strong option for mixed league formats but be aware that he will eventually have some outings where he gets hit up if teams properly scout his fastball and delivery because he tends to be fat on the plate too often...
I'd start him confidently against teams with few veteran and "professional" hitters but beware of starting him against teams that have real smart guys in their lineup because they may figure him out and be able to get on that fastball.
