Okay you minor league experts - tell me about Slegers.  Is he real?  Can he be MLB?  I just love the idea of a tiny Berrios followed by a giant Sleger to really give different looks to opposing lineups, but that is my fantasy and I wonder how real his stuff is.  

 

I read these reports and he sure sounds good. 

He's my Adopt-A-Prospect, and to summarize what I wrote up there, I'm no pro scout but when I watched him this past March he was throwing 94, and more importantly the hitters didn't seem to be getting a good read on him. Bottom line, he's got a chance.

I'm as honest as the day is long; the longer the daylight, the less I do wrong!

I would say that health was a part of it, for sure...
