Posted a 3.99 era with a 3:1 strikeout to walk ratio and almost a strikeout per inning with a whip of 1.27 in 18 starts and 6 appearances out of the pen. Not too shabby for a rookie who started the previous season in Class A and finished in AA.
I would hold on to him if I were you. I like his makeup. He takes the mound and is not intimidated. He has great mechanics and I can see him in the future being a legitimate #3 starter, maybe even better.
