Harvard? I went to Lail
He's had a very steady climb up the organizational ladder, piling up some very nice numbers along the way. Last year, he threw 148 innings across three levels, going 10-6 with a 2.91 ERA. This year, he's pitching well once again, and is now in AAA, where he is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA in 4 starts.
He doesn't strike out a lot of guys, but still finds a way to get them out with good command. It'll be interesting to see if he gets a spot start at some point, although there are a few guys lined up ahead of right now. Ideally he'll pitch the rest of the year in AAA and be given the chance to win a rotation spot next spring.
I was excited to see he was included in Bowman this year and was given an autograph. I haven't been able to get him TTM, so a certified auto will have to do.
