With some good lefty's in AAA and AA, I think the pressure's really on him to have a big spring next season.
vL .231/.388/.277 (.665 OPS)
vR .264/.353/.425 (.778 OPS)
He's got some real control problems across the board, particularly versus lefties, but they simply didn't hit him with any power. Definitely could be a small sample issue, but encouraging.
When you have as many strikeouts as hits, and both are less than the number of IP, you have something there. He'll never amount to a hill of beans if he keeps walking 6/9IP, but the stuff seems to be there.
