Former New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia had some high praise for former LSU pitcher Paul Skenes.

Skenes has gotten off to a great start in the MLB. The 22-year-old flamethrower has a 4-0 record in seven starts with a 2.29 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Sabathia spoke on the Pat McAfee show about what he thinks of the rising rookie.

“Paul Skenes is the real deal and he’s gonna be a bonafide ace for a very long time,” Sabathia said. “He’s been electric and I wanna see him in the All-Star Game.”

Skenes has helped the Pirates to a 35-38 record this season which puts them firmly in the wild card race. The MLB All-Star Game will be on July 16, and it remains to be seen if Skenes will be able to do enough to make the team.
