His first 2 innings he pitched weren't to good as he didn't have his control. However, I still mostly blame the first 2 hits, and only run, at the beginning of the game due to bad pitch calling. From then on, 3rd to the 5th, he settled down a lot and looked good. You could tell he was nervous out there and admitted it after the game.
Also I wouldn't be surprised if he is called up to long after the all star break. He just needs to get his control down and he will be solid. Not to mention Tracy is one of his biggest fans, and if Jackson puts together some solid starts Tracy could look his way. This outing should only help his confidence when he gets back to Triple A.
Yup! There's a reason why this guy is touted as one of the most valuable prospects in baseball. I just hope they don't rush him out there. Give him time to develop, give him the confidence he needs to become an elite pitcher in the coming years. I like how the Dodgers are handling him. He's obviously got the talent, now they just need to create the mental stability that a pitcher needs in the big leagues. Watch out, this guy is gonna be a stud in the coming years.
