My changeup could be a big difference-maker for me. I think I have a great fastball-curveball combination that’s pretty rare, but there are a lot of guys out there who have good fastballs and curveballs. To be able to give the hitter a different look, with a changeup, is huge.


Good stuff. Can't wait to see him in Spring Training next year. With all of the young arms we currently have, I hope they are patient with him.

For a 20 year old he sure has an advanced understanding of pitching.

In terms of pitching prospects, this is as close to a sure thing as you can get. I expect him to be the best starter we've had since at least Drabek.

I'm not familiar with the term 12-6. What is that?

12 to 6 as in positions of the hour hand on a clock. A curveball that breaks straight downward.
