Sickels Scouting Report of Mike Montgomery

Saw him pitch recently and gave us this Royal review.

Schaum's Edwin Carl Interview

What's interesting is it sounds like Carl's got a major league repertoire. Fastball 91-94 and can touch 95. Change-up and curveball that he can throw for strikes. He says it's all just coming together for him now. I'd like to hear what a scout says about his stuff, but superficially, it seems he's the real deal. Now he just needs to earn his promotions quickly due to his age. Regardless, I'll be keeping an eye on this intriguing pitcher.

Not saying the Royals could have been serious bidders here, but might this be a cautionary tale? Many have panned this offseason's FA starting pitching, but can the Royals afford to wait to make a splash?
