Keith Law piles on...

I was also asked about Brad Pea**** (Washington), who has posted outstanding numbers as a starter in Double-A this year after looking more like a one-pitch reliever in the Fall League last year. Pea**** was 91-94 with an average curveball (he calls it a knuckle-curve, which isn't great news since so few pitchers can command that pitch) at 73-76 with break somewhere between 12/6 and 11/5. He threw one changeup at 81 mph, running it in to a right-handed hitter. He's a smaller guy with a lot of effort who really has to work to repeat his delivery at all and probably projects as a pen guy despite the knockout performance in the Eastern League.
