2010 Mock Draft Selections (picking for Rays)
We've always known about him. It's just that no one thought much of him as a starter, so there was no reason to LOVE him as a reliever before he had made an appearance. That said, I did predict here that he'd have early success in the big leagues.

He's sure been a nice find. Maybe I missed it but I never remembered even hearing his name mentioned around here before his callup
Kudos to the Reds front office for recognizing this kid had the stuff to play in the majors and was willing to move him up from AA. He was rarely mentioned as major league material around here
He does have some wicked sink on some of his pitches. Having seen Marmol last week and Smith as well, i thought there was some comparison on their breaking pitches. Not going too far with that comparison, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
