    I think it is more about conditioning. When he is a fat slob he can't repeat. When he is slimmer. He performs better.

    His shoulder was probably a result of Seattle messing with his delivery to help his control.

    Maybe that is mallex. I don't think so.
    Rays aren't exactly batting 1000 on trades lately either

    Go hard is younger than Newcombe and shown improvement in his walk rate.
    Totes new nickname.

Couple that with his AFL performance, which showed even more control improvement, you have a pretty good prospect.
    It's quite probable the Braves saw a guy about to break out and become an elite pitching prospect, so they pounced. Time will tell.

    Mallex could turn into Bourjos and Go Hard could turn into Lester. Unlikely, but the Braces would look like geniuses.

    Not sure the Braves medical team giving him the seal of approval inspires me with the utmost confidence though.

    Sounds like there are some concerns about De Leon's shoulder as well via mlbtraderumors: "De Leon’s shoulder has been a source of concern for some, but the right-hander denies that there’s any cause for concern and said his arm is healthy."

    Likely not a big deal, but sounds just as vague as Gohara

    I'm guessing that's why the Twins wouldn't take him straight up for Dozier.

    Pitcher and shoulder in the same sentence should always be a big deal. It might be nothing, but it would scare me if I was a GM.
