The King wears smaller clothes.

For anyone who's a Mariner fan or just a fan of top prospects living up to their potential, behold, the new Felix.

Not only does he look like he's in much better shape, he also looks much more physically mature. Those before pictures to the left speak volumes to how young Felix still is.

...and to preemptively address some of the almost certain backlash, yes, this doesn't mean Felix will be the best pitcher in baseball, or that he's a sure-fire HOF or that he'll stay healthy, etc. etc.--but it's very encouraging nevertheless.

The kid who posted the fourth best xFIP in the MLB last year is becoming a man.
