Felix Jorge Update With the minor league season coming to an end, I thought a quick update on my “adopt-a-prospect” would be good.

Much attention has been given to the differences in his 1st and 2nd half, so I'd like to take a look and see what version of Kyle Gibson we will get in 2018 or if it is somewhere in between. I don't just want to throw a bunch of statistics at you as that...
