Whelan has some serious potential. He's been pretty dominant in the minors thus far and the converted catcher may be seeing AA by the all-star break. There is some thought that Zumaya may be ultimately groomed as the team's closer, but they should really give Whelan a look. This guy has some nasty stuff.
I don't know much about the former Jairo Garcia really except that he can throw really hard. Maybe someone else know something?
