Runvelys Hernandez, worth taking?

Postby Mills13 » Sat Mar 05, 2005 5:54 pm

Sporting news just said he has made a great comeback and his fast ball is at 93, what do you all think?

He should be worth a flier, since he has regained the velocity he had during his early 2003 dominance.

yea he may be worth a very late draft pick, but it almost always takes pitchers at least one full season to fully recover from tommy-john surgery.

While Runelvys is a decent prospect, he hasn't shown a great K/BB ratio yet and he's not going to get a lot of help from a bad KC team, either in run support or defense.

He has decent upside, but I don't see him as a potential superstar. Even if he reaches his upside, the Royals will hold him back and he'll just be mediocre. There are better guys to take fliers on.

I agree that he does have some potential to pitch decently but that he's not really worth a roster spot just yet. Maybe keeping an eye on or something in case Elvis has waved his magic wand on the Royals but I don't see KC as having a very productive team.

it would all depend on who youd have to drop to pick him up or how it would effect your waiver position.
