Bailey will only succeed in the majors if he's a high K pitcher and today's 10 K effort in 7 IP is very encouraging. It's the kind of pitcher he needs to be -- not try to be, just be.
I think maybe not trying to strikeout everyone however could have helped him hone his stuff to the point where he can now actually do it.
