He has a ways to go, but even if he tops at 89-90, that's about where he was at before being injured anyway.
That was my point I don't think he's near that. The last time he pitched against live hitters was in April against AAers and got rocked. He threw a simulated game at the end of last month and they said his velocity was slightly better but that he still needed to work on arm strength. And he had a horrible year last season (mostly injured), and in the years before 04 he wasn't very good.
Edit: He threw on July 3rd also, but still my main point is that he is still a long way off, and even healthy how much will he help us? I like maybe using him out of the pen if he's ever healthy.
