Yes, the season is still young and a lot can change.
But, Jose Berrios’ first three starts this season have been the type of thing legends are made from.
Look at his stat line:
- K:BB – 24:1
- 10.45 K/9
- WHIP – 0.63
- OPP – .187
- 1 CGSO
- Plus he devoured the soul of Jose Fernandez
Just take at this video of all his Ks against the Chicago White Sox. I mean, his “rising” fastball is just stupid — you simply cannot make contact with it. His curve might be one of the scariest in the game, too.
Look for yourself:
Is it too early to make the argument that Berrios is a favorite to win the Cy Young?
