Has everyone forgotten he was a starter growing up? It's not like this was a radical change, he just hasn't gotten the opportunity in MLB-level.
You're right. Cuba is the majors. They have millions of dollars invested in video and scouting. I don't doubt that he can pitch in the rotation, I'm just tired of everyone saying we just put Verlander in the bullpen talk.
