whats the story on him?

Will he be called up this yr around September, sonner?
I know he got called up late last year...

I have heard he could be a 2 or 3 pitcher, is that consistent with what people generally think about him.

Also anyone have info on what kind of pitcher he is, I would assume being drafted that high he has pretty good stuff and can wing the fastball with decent velocity, but has anyone watched him pitch?


thanks in advance

I think he'll be up sooner maybe by the ASB if he progesses as expected.
He' s a tall LHP with a plus fastball and curve.

Yeah, I think he'll be up when he gets hits his stride this year. ASB sounds about right and all he has to do it outperform any of these guys...Odalis Perez (L), Jason Bergmann (R), Tim Redding (R), John Lannan (L), Matt Chico (L)...which doesn't seem that hard.

He'll probably go the way the Nationals team is going. If they're scoring runs and winning games then he could be fantasy worthy but if they're not, then he'd only be slightly better than average and he'd really only be worthy of pith or ditch. He's worth it in dynasty or keeper leagues though probably.

I have him on 2 dynasty teams, so I hope he turns out
