Eh, he just likes Golden. There's tools, but Shawon Dunston Jr. also has tools.
To be honest, I'm mildly surprised (well, with a lot of things) but with the Loux votes here. I like Loux, am happy we got a guy with a better chance to be a starter than Brigham (IMO). But ... baseballamerica had this to say in their trade central
"Loux reached Double-A in 2012 and made all his starts without incident, showing a simple, repeatable delivery and an idea of how to pitch. He works downhill, sits 90-92 mph and commands his fastball to both sides of the plate, though neither his velocity nor his secondary pitches separate him from the pack. His average slider and curveball blend together, but most scouts like his changeup best and think he knows how and when to use it. He profiles as an innings-eating No. 5 type on a good team."
You know who that sounds like? Nick Struck. There's some slight differences here and there - Loux is taller and gets a few more groundballs, Struck has probably a tick better velocity, and well, he's 6 months younger. He's also had some success in AAA. The profile of their stuff is fairly similar, and no one has beat down the door to get Struck even on the list to discuss (to be honest, been thinking he should probably become a voting consideration soon because he is a close to ready arm in the upper levels with a solid performance track record).
I voted for Loux, but also agree that Struck is similar. I guess I don't value far away potential in pitching as much as I value Loux neared term promise. While I'm not a scout I did read Sickels on Minor League Ball (I think) put Loux at 20. Plus I am an Aggie alum so that may have colored my pick here I suppose.
