His name is Jharel Cotton and if you don’t know him yet you likely will soon.  He had a brief stint in the majors last year after being traded from the Dodgers (my team) to the A’s.  He pitched 29 innings last year and had a 0.88 WHIP. But the thing that really stands out is his changeup. Rumored to be the best in all of baseball. The pitch already has a near 15 mph velocity dip from his fastball, that is right 15mph (you know that will confuse batters) and the movement it showed was downright nasty.  This is a deep sleeper in fantasy, no one is talking about him or even thinking about him.   Not a bad idea to take a stab on someone who might end up being a SP2 or SP3 on your team for basically no investment whatsoever.
