No. It's not too early for me to offer my opinion. I didn't like the pick because I felt he had a limited ceiling. He's not going to add any MPH to his fastball, any more sink to his sinker or cut to his slider. He throws a lot of pitches but none of them are devastating. He does not miss bats. He's a decent major league pitcher but nothing special and never will be. Spending a #8 overall pick(I can't remember exactly where we took him) on a guy who, as drafted, was basically as good as he was ever going to be, is a mistake.
