Kiko Calero

Postby NY Yankees Fan 2004 » Fri Apr 29, 2005 2:31 am

I had him on my team earlier and dropped him cause of the injury.

The latest update on him:

Apr 28 Updating previous items, Mychael Urban, of Athletics.MLB.com, reports X-rays previously taken on Oakland Athletics RP Kiko Calero (elbow) revealed a bone spur in Calero's elbow. However, trainer Larry Davis indicated Calero has had the bone spur since 2001, and the team still expects Calero to be able to pitch over the coming weekend.


what do you guys think of him for the rest of the year? Can he be a reliable guy to Lower ERA+WHIP, and pick up some Wins and K's?

If he's healthy, he can. He's probalby pitching a little over his head -- as are most of the A's pitchers right now -- but if he gets 60-70 IP, a line something like:

70K/2.80ERA/<1.00WHIP

wouldn't surprise me at all with a few vulture wins thrown in and the occasional save. ;-D

Dotel will be moved come the trade deadline.

Calero should be next in line for saves.

Make sure you consider that information when evaluating him.

I'd have to question whether Calero would be next in line if Dotel were to get traded. The A's drafted Street to close, and if they're in a position where trading Dotel for some down the road help is a consideration, I would think Street gets the first call.

They drafted street for a dominate bullpen arm. A bullpen "ace" if you will. not to 'close"

Street should/could eventually close for the A's, but its highly doubtful at 21, especially with the depth in the A's bullpen, and the lack of major league experience. He's still highly erratic, and shouldnt be pitching in high leverage situations untill he accumulates more performance data at the major league level.

Uh... how do you figure most of the A's pitchers are pitching over their head right now? And even if they were pitching good, why would it surprise anyone? If it's one thing the A's are known for, it's pitching.

Having the second best ERA, third best BAA, fourth best K/9, and fourth best WHIP in the AL while being one of the youngest staffs in the league, qualifies as possibly pitching over their heads, but that's just me. I'm not saying it surprises me, just that I don't continue them to keep it up all year since they are all so young.
