His whole ascension to the top of the draft board, when he suddenly could not only hold his fastball velocity late into games but improve it, was already in need of an explanation. Now we have a potential explanation that seems pretty plausible to me.
That's the way I'm leaning, unless they may think he will be allowed to "treat his ailment" as a pro.
Still though, if they were drafting 3rd maybe it makes sense to take the guy but when you have the option of one of the other two among the big three, I see no reason to risk it.
