I would have to say that Hermida will have a starting job in 2006. Just because the person he is loosing time to now is Jeff Conine and considering the Juan Encarnacion is in the final year of a two year contract I say the Marlin will be starting Hermida come next spring.
Other guys I think will be starting. Matt Cain... The Giants have been looking for a starter to replace Brett Tomko and Cain even as a rookie will be much better than a Brett Tomko.
Marte.... he is a question mark... He might start and he might not depending on if Chipper moves back out to the outfield or if Marte makes the switch. He is ready for the Majors and has nothing left to prove in the minors.
Delmon Young and BJ Upton.... Devil Rays management has said both of these guys will start next year in Triple-A. Which is a shock to me. Upton is starting to look like a position switch is in order and Young is ready now but I think the Devil Rays want to give him more seasoning at Triple-A.
Francisco Liriano - This guy was amazing this season and a lot of people feel he was the best pitcher in the minor this season. He should be starting for the Twinkies next spring.
Couple of other guys that could start next season...
