There is an old scouting thing I have begun to believe more in than ever before.... don't trust the numbers on a guy who has a very good change up until he reaches AA. Not saying they can't continue it, but it seems that a really good change up with mediocre other stuff gets you a lot further in the low minors than a mediocre FB and a really good breaking ball will in terms of your numbers.
