I keep seeing his name as a possible sleeper pick. Can anyone give me some info on him and his possible stats for this coming season. I have him currently on my minor league roster and was curious to his value!

thanks ;-D

7-11 4.30 ERA, 150Ks

He'll definitely get there, but he is real young, if anything i see him doing better than those stats,but not by much, hang on caus eyou have a keeper

Highly touted prospect. Struggled at times in AAA last year posting an ERA over 4. I wouldnt draft him this season in a standard league. Keeper league i like him.

13-10, 3.85 ERA, 1.24 WHIPP, 128 K's

Some would see it as optimistic but I think he's ready for the majors. He was awesome in the minors and doesn't rely on overpowering hitters, which is what a lot of young pitchers struggle with in their rookie year. His long-term potential is better than that though; needless to say don't let him go cheap.
