I could turn that around and ask you why you would rely on such a small sample size for a pitcher that isn't exactly young to be a prospect?
Part of it is I just don't believe that he can do it...my eyes again...crazy...There is that HR% (he was on Milton pace for HR's allowed) and if I'm reading the stats correctly (quickly) the GB% vs. FB% in Great America Ballpark is going to be a problem. Flyball pitchers go there to die.
It's my opinion, I'm not going to change my mind based on 40 IP for a pitching "prospect" that will be 26 years old on opening day. Shouldn't a 25 year-old be good at AAA even if he just has marginal talent and is facing inferior hitters in his 3rd season pitching in the league? I mean, I never said he wasn't smart.
