Its true he hasn't pitched a full season yet but every great pitcher was in that situation once. I am not just handing him the greatness title but the talent is quite high with kid and he has shown in his 118 IP just how incredibly dominating he can be. Pitching for the yanks helps too, as although they weren't great last season, he is going to win a lot of the games he pitches if he continues only giving up 1 or 2 runs every 6 innings.....
I'm more worried about his shoulder injury TBH.
Do you think that shoulder injury was primarily caused by the Yankees jerking him back and forth between the bullpen and rotation, preventing him from building the appropriate arm strength to avoid pitching related injuries unless he's just a Ben Sheets or Rich Harden type, or not?
