now that he has signed with the Mariners.

Talent level?

Timeframe?

Can throw in the high 90s, and has the potential to be a quality closer. I'd probably liken him to a smaller Chris Perez with better control. Both guys are right about the same range to me as far as prospect go.

I read that the Mariners are considering starting him at AA, so if he does well there, he could be closing for them by the end of the season and possibly mid-season. It's not like they have anyone else to pitch the ninth, right?

If all goes well, he'll be closing for the Mariners this season and for many years thereafter.

attend uga now as a grad student, have been here for about 5 years now counting my undergrad. I've seen fields pitch plenty of times while he was here. Really good control with upper 90's fastball. has some filthy off speed stuff. did have some issues a couple of times with overthrowing his fastball and leaving it up, but it was rare. kid is legit.
