Terrible stat line, but I saw a lot of positives. He sure brings the heat. If he can get his control down and work up his slider, he could be deadly. Reminds me of Motte a few years ago, but with more heat.
The thing that most impressed me, though, was how he responded to giving up back-to-back HRs. It's his MLB debut, it started about as terribly as possible topped off by b2b HRs, and he responds by retiring 5 in a row. I mean, you can't call it a good outing, but there's something to build on for sure. Not surprisingly, though, he is not big league ready.
