Thanks for the link. Nice to see some progress. The question that arises then is he able to repeat it consistently? Thats the issue with pitchers 6'9. The stuff is there. If he gets delivery consistent, I think he'll move fast from there.

It looked pretty consistent last night.  He's more athletic than most guys that big. This isn't a Daniel Cabrera collection of random long limbs that approximate a human form.  I'm still not seeing the precision necessary to keep pitch counts down enough to start with hitters who aren't chasing left and right, but he's got 3 more levels of minors to get there. 

Like I said, there's no reason he should still be in Fredericksburg.  Innings are innings and he'll at least learn more higher up.  There's still time to get him 2 turns in A+ if they want, and Wilmington's at home for the last week of the season.
