What they are saying: “I’m one of those guys who thinks size does not matter when it comes to left-handers. He pitches off the fastball which is 87 MPH and has a plus, plus change up. Have seen him get his own guys out (intra-squad), have seen him get pro hitters out and have seen him get major leaguers out” _ Veteran scout.
