I had my weekly radio segment with David Todd today, which actually extended into a second segment this week. We had a lot of prospects to discuss, including Steven Brault, Kevin Kramer, Jameson Taillon, Alen Hanson, Mitch Keller, Luis Heredia, Yeudy Garcia, Brandon Waddell, and Edgar Santana. You can check out the podcast below, which is separated into two different sections. The second section has talk about Heredia, Garcia, Waddell, and Santana, and the first section has everyone else.

    • He has two Double-A starts, so it’s tough to assume he will be MLB ready around mid-season next year, but if all goes well (which goes for anyone with potential really), 20 Double-A starts and 12-14 in Triple-A should be enough to have someone ready for the majors. So yes it is possible, but he still needs to prove he can handle the top two levels of the minors

      • He seems, from what I read anyway, to be the type of guy that doesn’t need to work on much. Seems to be the type of player that just needs to get his time in and prove his stuff can play at the higher levels vs. refining a change up, keeping the walks down, etc. Is there anything that he needs to sharpen other than having some proven success against the higher levels?

        • Put it this way, he does a lot of things right, but there is always some improving he could do since he doesn’t have plus pitches. He has command of five average pitches, so that plays well when a certain pitch might not be on, he can just drop it for that game and still have four pitches to go to. Gives him some leeway, but he can still make those pitches more consistent so if his command isn’t perfect, he can still have a good game.

          He is a polished pitcher for his age, so experience against top level hitters is the big key towards his future. He will hit some bumps, scouting reports will get out, then you need to see how he handles/adjusts to that.
