Keith Law on Mike Minor

I actually got a question through in Keith Law's chat Wednesday, and got an encouraging answer. Hope this  trend continues and our often-panned 1st round pick of a "low ceiling guy" ends up better most people thought.

John (Atlanta)
Mike Minor is striking guys out like crazy, at 13.1 per 9 innings. Is he doing
anything differently, or is it more a function of being more polished
than the guys he's facing? Was he ever supposed to be a big K guy?
Klaw  (1:20 PM)
Throwing harder - a good 2-3 mph harder - with the accompanying drop in command.
The questions are: Can he improve his command without giving up the
newfound velo? And can he maintain the velo for a full season? If the
answers to both are "yes," his ceiling would jump to that of a #2
starter.
