When I saw him in Dayton a few years ago, he wasn't throwing much over 91-92, but was really relying on a big breaking curveball. Maybe it's a Donnie Joseph situation where he's somewhat hittable if batters can lay of his breaking stuff?
It would go further than just the HR's. The air is considerably thinner in a lot of the parks than most of the minor leagues.
