    What a pick by the front office in the past draft. This kid has the tools to be top of the rotation type guy years down the road

    Wow, 97 with 2482 spin is pretty elite stuff, especially from a teenager.

    If he was old enough to shave he could be in the Stros bullpen this year.

    I've seen enough. Bring him in tomorrow. I believe there was a 15 year old that pitched in the mlb a couple of years back.

    I really have the feeling that soon, people all over will be saying "how the hell did he fall all the way to our pick?" Of course signability was a big reason why (strong commitment to Maryland), but still. Looks like a 1st round talent.

    Fangraphs has him at 89-93 so I’m guessing his stuff has gotten much better since they evaluated him.
