The similarities are certainly there for these two pitchers, although if Carley wants to play for the Yankees he's going to have to do some grooming first.
Or maybe he has, per John Torres of Florida Today:
"I was just getting shaped up for Saturday night's graduation/draft party," he said. "It's funny that I was getting my hair cut because the Yankees are known for having strict rules about being clean-cut and all that."
Carley was drafted in the 14th round as the 422nd overall pick.
