This is the guy I've been following out of his senior year with Oregon State. I was very glad that the Brave's drafted him so I could continue to follow him. I watched him in a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game in 2007 and he is a great reliever with closer caliber stuff. He was even kind enough to give me an autograph.
Right now he is 1-1 with an ERA of 1.63 and 25k's in 27.2 innings pitched in AA Mississippi. Since he is 24 years old, I think the Brave's should finally give him a shot and call him up to help fix a few problems with the current bullpen.
What are your guys thoughts on Kevin? Should he stay and develop a little longer or is he ready to go and contribute to the Atlanta in the Big Show?
