Is Tate, who turns 23 in May, on his way to becoming a big bust?
Scouts do get turned off seeing a young arm go from throwing in the high-90s to the low 90s.
"I saw him at Santa Barbara," Law said. "He was 94-98 as a starter and holding it with a pretty good slider. And I saw him last spring with Texas, and the first time out he was bumping 95 and they cleaned up the delivery.
"He hurt his hamstring in April, and after he came back and all the way through Fall League when I saw him yet again, his fastball was just not there. He's pitching with an average fastball now, even in shorter stints in relief."
