Professional baseball pitcher who was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2007, then traded to the Texas Rangers in 2015.
Because his high school was too small for a baseball team, he focused in golf. He didn't gain attention from college teams and MLB until attending a junior college baseball showcase in 2007.
He earned a degree in business administration from Cloud County Community College.
His mother, Billie, died just a few months before he was drafted to the Philadelphia Phillies. He has described his father, Paul, as his best friend.
He became teammates with Yu Darvish on the Texas Rangers.
