El novato

Awesome arm, no control.  Eventually will probably get his act together, but with the Royals having more pitching than most teams he’s not a good bet to surface this year, or to succeed if he does.  My own guess is that he’ll eventually be a bullpen closer, but whatever his role is to be, he hasn’t found it yet.
