There wasn't much Hoop'la in here when he got called up...
could have been last years struggles but apparently everybody is still getting over their Riley hangover
Agreed. Looking at his minor league stats this year, he is either lights out or rocked. That says when he's on he is unhittable. I like that coming from a young pitcher like him.... he will refine his mechanics and only improve.
He's said to have gone back to his original college delivery this year after experimenting with new delivery last year and failed miserably. That alone is worth a dime, cant argue with the stats... He's K/BB ratio isnt exactly great but that should improve.
