Or, could I say it, he could be Chris Shelton.
He very well could...but you got him for nothing, you can drop him for nothing... right now, you can't go wrong with picking him up.
He's a sick stud. He was #1 overall as a hitter but could have easily went #1 overall as a pitcher as well. Threw upper 90's in high school with like 100ks in 45 innings.
When he was at the Winning Innings training facility in Florida last summer raking the infield for free batting cage practice and grilled cheese a college team was there and he talked the pitchers into letting him throw a few while in his custodian uniform. They were in shock with what they saw.
If you can come back from smoking 3 million in crack you can hit 300/30. He'll swipe bags too.
