(Pat from Indiana)
|Purely a stat play. I saw one of his outing last year with the Jays, and can't tell you much from a scouting perspective. He's put up some terrific K/BB numbers in the minors, though, and his career minor-league performance marks him as someone who can contribute.
I think pitchers with great K/BB are my version of scouts' love of guys who can run. (Joe Sheehan)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
