If not he will be 22 and in the MLB. Nothing wrong with that. If he dominates he could be ready by early 2016. He will be right with or slightly behind Holmes and Glasnow and right behind kingham in development who obviously is behind Taillon then Cole. I think they have it paced out nice. Hopefully another kid in the draft or two, or some of the foreign prospects can step up behind him and keep the chain going. – frederick langford

He’s still a child. Compare his numbers and the amount of work he’s put in the last two years. Then, compare that to the average workload of a player in his junior and senior year of high school.

Only threw 66 innings last year and still has not hit 100 for his career. 18 until August. I figure he’ll get around 16-17 starts and throw around 80ip this summer and hopefully some playoff innings as WVa seems to be putting it together slowly with a young team that is adjusting. Then we can hopefully start him in the warm weather of Bradenton next season at 19 years old. He will be ready for 100+ innings next season.
