I also loved the Jesse Winker and Tanner Rahier picks.
I'm not sure what to think of Jeff Gelalich. I'll have to do some more reading on him.
Dude has tree trunks as thighs. His build reminds me a lot of Matt Cain. In just watching the video it almost seems as if he is throwing 100% all the time. I am encouraged that he can touch 99 at times but sits within the 92ish range. Its always nice to have a pitcher who is able to dial it up but doesn't pitch the entire time like that.
