Combine that high expectation with recovering from a major injury, and there you have Tim. As I said in my first half review of the starters, Tim started the season very strong and looked like he had turned a major corner. As April ran into May however, his off speed stuff seemed to lose some of its movement, and he quickly became very hittable.
Great news is that Tim just turned 21 before the season started and he now has more than 225 professional innings under his belt. Still a long way to go, but the potential is there.
One of the biggest hurdles for any pitcher is learning how to keep your team in the game when you don't have your best stuff. Hopefully, he will make these adjustments and take the next step.
