That's not saying much though honestly. Can you even name another pitching prospect that has been called up (and stayed)?
As you can tell I don't really like him as a starter. I think he can be a pretty good RP, but he doesn't have what it takes to be a starter. His era wasn't very good, his walk rate was also really bad in Triple A. He really only has one plus pitch which is a very good slider, but that's really it. To me he just isn't that good a starter (no off speed pitch) and will be much better in a relief role.
