As a starter who has averaged better than a strikeout per inning, that uptick in isn't what's most impressive. That he only walked two in those two outings could be the sign of improvement and making adjustments. The one small knock against last year's No. 2 overall pick had been about his command. He's walked 4.4 per nine innings to date, so the drastic drop in walks last week could be a harbinger of good things on the horizon.
