C Trent talks with Mike Leake
More at the link, but two quotes here.

On the transition to wood bats: “I’m kind of a wood-bat pitcher because I like to work in and break bats. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but it will be fun to throw some wood in the fire.”

Does he expect the Reds to shut him down because he already has 120 innings this season (and counting): “I’ll be able to pitch, I think I’m in pretty good shape. I don’t think I’m worn down too much.”

Great control, above average stuff.

He is a shorter guy at 6? “0 tall, but he throws lots of strikes and has an 88-94 MPH fastball with an above average slider, above average change up and an in progress curve. He is a guy who could move very fast through the system.
