DateQuestionAnswer
2012-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)For as highly regarded as he apparently is, I haven't heard a lot about Lance McCullers. Can you give a general idea on his ceiling? Sticks in the rotation or future closer?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
There's more optimism for him sticking in the rotation than there was entering the spring. Houston is going to develop him as a starter and see where things go. He has a mid-90s fastball and a plus breaking ball, so the question of whether his upside is a #1 or #2/#3 will come down to how well he's able to develop a third pitch and command his arsenal. (Bradley Ankrom)
