Not a pounding. He gave up 4 hits but all 6 outs he induced were GBs. Sometimes the hit % just goes against a pitcher. If he continues to induce ground balls at such a high rate AND gets his K/9 around 9 or so, he could be an elite reliever.

Yeah very very few relievers generate a 50% GB rate like he can.
The majority of the best, 9 K/9 relievers are flyball leaning.
