Great to hear. Kind of surprised they started him in single A ball.

If his arm can hold up, that nasty curve of his can take him a long way.

I thought college pitchers were supposed to be a more finished product, able to jump right into Double A?

I was told quite a few years ago that a good D1 college pitcher should still start at single-A, but move up quickly. Things have changed rapidly the last few years as MLB teams' minor league systems have fewer teams. Today, college pitchers picked high are expected to contribute at the MLB level within 2 years, often much sooner.

Brandon Finnegan went straight from TCU and the CWS to KC and the World Series in the same year.

Which ended up ruining his career.
