Left-handed finesse pitcher who threw a no-hitter during his 2001 rookie time of year as an associate from the St. Louis Cardinals. He went to St. John Bosco SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL in California. He was 4th in the First year of the entire year voting in 2001, but after an unhealthy 2002 time of year, he was repaid towards the minors rather than returned towards the big leagues. He was created in Torrance, California. Platinum Glove catcher Mike Matheny was his teammate within the Cardinals.
