Here’s what they have to say on Stephen Sauer:
What he needs to improve: Sauer is a polished prospect. He already has fantastic control of a low 90’s sinking fastball, he keeps the ball on the ground, doesn’t give up home runs and strikes out a fair number of batters. He will need to continue working on his changeup, however, to help combat left-handed hitters, who hit .321 against him last year (vs. .271 AVG for right handers). …

We’ll have to see what Griffith’s curve and changeup look like post-surgery, but it is very unfortunate to have to lose the slider.
