He struggles with his command at times and is still learning to mix his pitches and set up hitters. The running movement on his pitches makes life tougher on lefties than righties.
Defense & Hitting
Traynor is a reliable fielder who doesn't get rattled on defensive plays and is rarely out of fielding position. Basestealers have succeeded against Traynor because his pickoff move is weak for a lefthander. Traynor is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Traynor has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Traynor as a pinch-runner on occasion.
Traynor 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 Traynor.
