What the flip? On the GCL roster he is listed as a pitcher. Did we just give up on his 'raw talent' and decide to make him throw it? LOL probs just an error.

I have heard he throws in low-90s. No word on movement or other pitches

That's awesome. Hopefully it works out. Is he a starter or a reliever?

This appears to be a last ditch attempt to somehow salvage a disastrous pick and wasted bonus money, similar to what happened with Ryan DeLaughter.

Any truth to the rumor he's related to Robert Englund?

most HS players taken in the early rounds aren't worth squat.

That is one thing that Bowden did that I didn't like. I much prefer Rizzo's method of drafting more proven, college players.
