Article: Kepler, Bullpen Push E-Twins to Championship Game

Berrios on the bump with a league title on the line... that couldn't have worked out much better.
I just hope the kid can handle the pressure of a big game like a title game. Possibly a sign of future greatness how he pitches. Either way, this kid is the one of the top pitchers in this weak organization.
Is 2015 the right time for a debut or could he make it sooner?

He's definitely advanced for his age, but at this point with pitchers I'm less about projecting "when" and more about "praying they don't get hurt".
I'd gladly take putting up with Steven Strasburg-type-debate: "Should-we-shut-him-down-or-not?"- in 2015 if this kid pans out anywhere close to Strasburg's numbers.

He is looking really, really good but I'm going to wait to get really excited until he spends a year in full season ball.
