"Pearson projects to be among the most watchable pitchers in the game. We’ve lost some of that in recent years of course, between the use of openers and the diminished workloads of even the game’s best starters. Pearson, though, can be in that latter category, can be Chris Sale or Max Scherzer, who even in their developmental years could make you stop what you were doing and just stare in awe. Pearson has that kind of stuff, so whatever the stat lines are between now and October, he’ll be at the top of any 'What I’m Watching' list every five or six days."
