So, it does not appear that Robert Stephenson will pitch on Thursday, May 23 as I originally hoped, but it does appear that Drew Cisco will pitch that day.
As we all know by reading through this thread, Cisco received supplemental first round kind of money as a sixth rounder and then had TJ surgery.
Updates since this last thread is that he started 15 games in Billings last year and did a fantastic job of limiting walks (only 1.08/9 innings) and therefore had a stellar 6.42 K:BB last year. In his first 8 starts of 2013, Cisco has done an even better job of limiting walks (0.72 BB/9 innings) and has an even better K:BB ratio of 10.75. His ERA in those first 8 starts is 2.88 and his FIP of 2.76 backs it up.
Can any one give me a scouting report on his 2013 repertoire? Did we underrate him as our #25 prospect? Does he have the upside of being a major league starter?
