In other words, actually lesser stuff than Medlock, who had a low-90s fastball and above-average MLB changeup.
Anyone remember anything more specific?
He's definitely not overpowering, Doc. He has upper-80s fastball, best I remember, but as Brother Serafini said, a screwball is the gimmick pitch that he's been baffling hitters with through the minors.
