Starting Pitcher | Retired or Inactive Players
Maurin can get into trouble with walks, and there's concern about him being able to maintain his stuff over the whole season. His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. His composure needs work. When Maurin starts getting hit, he gets mad and loses concentration. The running movement on his pitches makes life tougher on lefties than righties.
Defense & Hitting
For a lefty, his move to first base is average at best, and he has a tendency to forget about runners at second, thereby creating opportunities to swipe third. Maurin is nothing special in the field. Maurin is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Maurin has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Maurin as a pinch-runner on occasion.
Maurin flat-out isn't ready for this level of competition. Expect the Retired or Inactive Players to send him down promptly. But if you ask me, I'll pass on Maurin.
