What's the word on this guy. How's he doing in AAA this year? Is there a chance he'll be called up? Could he make a contribution this year?

They have turned him into a reliever for this year and he is doing well. They still proclaim his future is still as a starter but there are concerns about his stamina. He might get Sept call up but it will be as reliever.

Texas moved him to the pen to fastrack his call up to the majors. I think he could see a call up for a cup of coffee this year, but likely wont have much value in the pen. He has been called a future closer as well as a future ace. He would have more value to the Rangers in a starting role, but with his control issues, they may prefer him in a relief role (as his control has sharpened a bit in the pen). With that said, I could see them pulling a joba, having him pitch in relief for awhile, then stretching him out. His fastball is electric, lets just hope his results are better than Holland.

I'd be suprised if he really realizes his full potential as a starter...he could still be quite a dominant closer though, IMHO.
