He had a very good rookie season andĀ IIRC was highly consistent, a good sign in itself. If he keeps progressing and reaches a solid #3 tossing 200 innings or so, that’ll be an awesome rotation if the front guys develop.

Nothing to be concerned about at this point in his development.

That said, his command is great. I see him as a younger version of Kyle McPherson.
