Blake Snell: Crystal Ball

New, 5 comments

By reader request, here is a Crystal Ball for Tampa Bay Rays rookie Blake Snell.

Keep in mind that this is not an official prediction. This is intended to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.

It is not just thrown together; I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground.

What do you think of this one?
