I don't know a ton about him. He's a 24yo lefty out of Florida State (I was thinking Arkansas for some reason). This year he has 8.1K/9 which is pretty good and a 2.69 K/BB ratio, and it looks like he has allowed 5ER in his last 9.2IP (his only 5ER of the year).
I've heard a lot of people apply the typical Cardinal injury formula to this and speculate it's TJ surgery, but I don't think that's going to be it for some reason. I should know better than to trust Mozeliak on on injury, but he said that it's early in the year and we have lots of depth to reward somebody for a good start to the season. That actually makes sense to me. It's mid-May and we have a couple of pitchers tearing it up in AAA. So, I could see this being a 3-4 start thing.
