[H]is stuff is legit. A 96 MPH fastball that comes from the side similar to Thornton’s so it’s tailing hard in on righties and hard away on lefties. Great starting pitch, going to be hard to hit. Sale snapped off a changeup in this game that had real good movement, and that curveball from his windup is the pitch we always dreamed Thornton would develop; sharp break, but you can’t pick it up from his windup. He keeps that arm healthy and this kid has few limits.
