    When you throw 101 mph, your secondary stuff doesn't need to be pristine to be an effective pen arm.

    That said.... he did snap some nice sliders, but clearly needs work for consistency

    His change didn't have have much depth or fade, and they never mentioned how much separation not had from his fastball velo, but needs work for consistency.

    Think I saw 1 curveball there too, but it was way outside so that's probably just a show-me pitch right now.

    There was 0 hard contact... just slappy attempts to get a bat on it and really weak contact. That's nice to see. It's SS A ball, but that's what his results should be down there

    Leblebijian has tailed off for sure but Roemon Fields has hit enough (.309/.366/.379 albeit with a huge BABIP spike) to maybe be interesting as a bench player with his ++ speed.

    It would be sick if Fields could be Dyson 2.0.

    I wouldn't be so matter of fact from a single appearance. Stuff is inconsistent from one appearance to the next.

    Seems pretty whippey and not very effortless to me. He's already had TJ also.

    I admit though that any left handed throwing looks like it's more fucked up than right hand throwing to me.
