Walter on Fleming
"Will was a stand-out high school basketball player and has high upside on the mound. Right now he is a 90 mph arm with good sink and an improving slider. As he matures and adds strength in the weight room this velocity will tick up, and so will his role with our club. One day soon he'll pitch leverage innings for us but it may not be this season."
