(I think it was 7 years at $126 mil) fell off the face of the earth.

My youngest caught him in a bullpen session at UCLA (HC Savage was his former coach). Low key guy who pulled my son over to explain what his curveballs looked like. They threw a few of each off the mound. When he got on the mound my son said he had never seen curveballs like the ones he threw. He threw three different curveballs from different release points, at different speeds. The other pitchers just stood and watched. He talked/coached off-speed pitching with their staff for 40 minutes. My son said it was the closest thing he'd ever seen to a guy throwing whiffle ball pitches off a mound. UNREAL rotation on his pitches.
