Drafted by Cleveland in the 7th round of the 2010 Draft from Suffern HS (Suffern, NY).
He signed, and almost immediately had TJ surgery. Since coming back he has slowly moved up the organizations ladder, and in 2014 is having his best season to date. I saw him pitch twice while in Cleveland, and he was easily the best pitcher on the staff, but the lack of run support has kept him from getting some deserved wins. While his numbers deserve it, he might not get a promotion to Carolina until next season.
