I know he is still young, but he had a bad year. Is he still a top prospect for the Mets? I am not sure what to make of a guy who even as a youngster his top pitch is a change-up. Thanks!

He's with the Twins now, but I would say that he is no longer a top prospect. It will be interesting to hear the scouting reports, but the whispers that I heard had his fastball was <90mph this season. The one reason for optimism (very little optimism here) is that the Twins were working on his mechanics this season. And he might not have found a comfortable motion which could have limited his speed and control this season.

Personally I can't see him being a MiLB keeper unless your league is 200 MiLB'ers deep.

Agreed he is not much of a prospect right now. But if there is a Team that can get the most out of him, it's the Twins. They usually do a pretty good job with young SP.

I agree. He might end up in middle relief, but that's probably it.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.
