He had a little slump but is back on track. He is making the low A to high A jump look easy. His plate discipline hopefully will get him at least 2-3 weeks at Altoona this summer.

He has been very efficient this year with his pitches, getting quick outs with groundballs as opposed to trying to strike people out. That’s what the Pirates want their pitchers to try to do, although ideally you want someone who has a go to pitch when they are in a jam and could use the strikeout. What he has done this year is impressive, especially considering he wasn’t a starter until this time last year

He is building his pitch count up. Started Thursday down in Extended Spring Training, but wasn’t at his full pitch count yet going into the game
