John Ely Impressing

John Ely Impressing | FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball:

"True to the scouting reports, Ely isn’t lighting up radar guns — his fastball is averaging 87.9 MPH. However, he’s not using the pitch much (about 32 percent), and when he does, he gets strikes (70.1 percent, 64.4% MLB average). Ely’s bread-and-butter is his changeup. According to Pitch F/X data from, he has pulled the string about 41 percent of the time."

FWIW, Ely was ranked in the 8-11 range as a White Sox prospect.
