Analysis: Funkhouser has been worse than Schreiber in nearly every way, but he avoids a failing grade because bad batted-ball luck has inflated his ERA. On the plus side, Funkhouser’s stuff looks very good at times. He’s hit the upper-90s with a lively fastball , and he can occasionally unleash a plus slider. There’s late-inning potential here, but Funkhouser still needs to take big steps in terms of developing better control and consistency.
