Look no further than Johnny Cueto, who most prospect hounds had as a MOR starter at best, power reliever at worst. Johnny just kept going out there and proving them wrong.
Seems extra silly in Stephenson's case. I can see where Cueto may not have looked like an ace coming up, but Stephenson has an arm that rivals just about anyone in the game today. He obviously 'could' be an ace, and I'd say the same for Travieso at this point.
