I do remember that it wasn't a big deal and he definitely has impressed this spring. I definitely expect that Pfeif will get key innings this year. He's got a closer's mentality and a starter's stuff, so he could fit in a lot of places. I expect a breakout year. Rav and Nev are tougher to predict. Corbin tends not to put pitchers out there that he can't depend on to not be ineffectively wild. Up until now, neither Rav or Nev have been pinpoint or effectively wild, so unless things click, don't expect huge inning numbers, despite their tremendous potential.

You don't have to be Greg Maddux to be a great pitcher... you can miss your spots, but you can't either lose the zone temporarily or miss in the middle of the plate. I think both are a bit more pronounced than, say, Ziomek is during his typical one bad inning per game... but that's a good comparison. Both have golden arms though.As for Pfeif, I think he's a bit more spitfire than Sonny... but both are darn competitive. I think Pfeif's mound presence reminds me most of DP in some ways. He self-motivates through strikeouts, as an example.
