All-Star beginning pitcher who debuted within the majors using the Baltimore Orioles in ’09 2009. He performed basketball and soccer at Fountain Valley SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, in Fountain Valley, California. While he broke in to the MLB using the Orioles, he was originally drafted with the Seattle Mariners in the next round from the 2006 MLB Draft. He received interest from scouts as soon as age 15, therefore his mom Kathy consulted an consultant to be sure she could provide him the very best information. In 2014, he wedded Christina Hellman. He and catcher Matt Wieters both became a member of the Baltimore Orioles in ’09 2009.
