Flaherty vs “create a player”

I like our chances.

Looks like they have Flaherty setup well the rest of the season with the option for him to pitch the last game against the Cubs if needed on regular rest.

Here is a little info on James Marvel, who is making his Major League debut today:

-He was never thought of as much of a prospect but has burst onto the scene with a tremendous season.
-Wasn't even on 40 man roster until today and was not even invited to Spring Training
-36th Round Pick in 2015.
-He is 13-1 in his last 20 starts in the minors
-His stuff is not overpowering. Location and mixing pitches is important for him.

-He has gotten better at EVERY SINGLE level:
A-: 4.43 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 65.0 innings
A: 3.99 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 94.2 innings
A+: 3.35 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 158.1 innings
AA: 3.07 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 134.2 innings
AAA: 2.67 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 60.2 innings

Not sure I have ever seen a player steadily improve like that while moving up the minor league ladder.
