King Felix is the #5 guy in rotation

Rototimes(1/27) has a blurb from the M's that he's #5 in rotation so they can watch his innings. How does this affect his value? Drop in the draft? Or do you take a chance and wait to see if they let him pitch more.

I don't think it affects to much. About the only thing it would effect is if they skip him a start or two in the beginning of the season and probably keep his pitch count low to start. Other then that it's something they should watch with a young arm like that. He has shown last year he can get quite a few GB's and K's to keep his pitch count down if needed to pitch deeper in games.

Could improve his wins being the #5 starter, going against some weaker starters... but then sometimes he might have to go against a #1... so maybe not...

Don't take too much stock in this.

So what UR saying is that he really IS the #1 guy...just AFTER the 1st time thru the rotation!!! So...15 wins, 190 innings?

That's not true. A lot of times the 5th guy is skipped. I doubt the M's will skip Felix too much though being that he is their most talented pitcher.

On the other hand they may do it to keep his innings down.

I think they have said that he won't go past 200 innings, so I would expect him to be skipped a few times, but nothing that would lower his value much.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

I was thinking the same thing when I first read this. If anything, it should help his value a little bit. Going up against other teams #5's might net a few more wins. Anywhere that he is in the rotation, I would expect the M's to be watching his innings so this shouldn't make too big a difference. I think everyone learned from the Cub's mistakes.

I think it'll help him some. Like Jon Garland last year feeding off of the other #5 starters, I think Felix going against the other teams' worst starter is a good thing for Felix. Up his wins a little.

Being a #5 hurts fantasy value everytime. You lose starts every time the team gets a day off, skipping the 5 hole. And after the 1st 2 weeks of the season, the spot in order has little relevance on who you might face, as every teams rotation schedule has been altered by week 3, due to off days. Fantasy wise, it's a negative.
