He’s at 4 walks, no HRs, and 23 hits allowed in 30+ innings this year and 44 Ks. That suggests some development in the command area to me. There’s some shades of Hatch in that he missed 2017 to a non-surgery elbow injury, maybe you saw rust? I don’t necessarily see a guy with outright poor or nonexistent fastball command, though yeah nothing jumps out enough where my initial impression high ceiling ML SP or first rounder. I like the overall package of frame, very athletic delivery, quick arm, multiple spins, velocity, willingness to pitch guys inside, mostly quality or better performances...
Matthew Lugo looks interesting, like the universe blended Almora and Jordan Groshans into a SS prospect. I think there may be enough there to end up going in the first, and IIRC he may have been one of the HS bats hyped by pubs initially. In general the HS bats situation seems quiet but there’s definitely serious candidates to blow up over the next three months
