Where does he project...as a closer or setup man?
Stewart posted a 1.62 ERA and 11 BB/23 K ratio in 16.2 innings in High-A Sarasota. I'd actually be surprised if he started anywhere lower than Double-A. As for his future role, he's got the stuff to be a closer but with Cordero locked up for three more years his initial role may be as a setup man or middle reliever.
I miss Adam Dunn.
