The 13Ks, for me were a very good sign. I've seen a couple of his starts this year and for me one of the most frustrating things was his inability to put guys away. It seemed like he would have guys down 0-2 or 1-2, they would foul a bunch of pitches off and he would end up walking guys after an 8 pitch AB. Its one of the big reasons he was at 100 pitches after 5 innings.
Hopefully its the start of big things for him.
