lol, no. He's got a long way to go to build up arm strength and stamina. He's also going to be limited on innings this season and next season, so I wouldn't expect him to get much past 120 innings this season. And also, the competition is going to get a lot better between Low and Double A. 2021 might be optimistic for anything other than a spot start. 2022 and 2023 are far more realistic. Particularly if you factor in a TJS at some point.

120.this year, 150 next year, 180 in 2021. Theres no reason he cant be stretched out and ready for an MLB workload in 2021. I dont know if the consistency in his stuff will be there, but he should be fine as far as workload goes.
