(Festivus313 from Nick)
|I think he certainly can be. He's one of the more pleasant surprises of the Kansas City system this year. He pounds the zone with all of his pitches, and two of those pitches (fastball and curve) flash plus. There's not a ton of upside, but he has as high of floor as any pitcher in the system.

|2015-05-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Tell me more about some Wilmington guys: Cody Reed, Jake Junis, and Skoglund. Meanwhile, Dom Taylor doesn't seem to have tools, but he's had results. 4th OF profile?|
(Doug from Dallas)
|I've seen Reed and want to see him again. Power LHP with some backend potential but think he will end up in the bullpen due to delivery, command and secondary potential. Junis is an org. arm, who mixes it up and around a bit. Skoglund is a huge lefty with below avg. stuff and I think I would be more excited about him if he was 19 year old HS arm in his 2nd year in pro. ball. Skinny hips and shoulders and I just don't think he'll really add strength. (CJ Wittmann)|
