This guys minor league numbers are just as good if not better than some of the young phenoms that have just been called up.


MINOR LEAGUE PITCHING STATS
Year Team W L ERA G GS CG SHO SV INN H R ER HR HBP BB SO
2003 R-Danville 2 1 1.25 11 11 0 0 0 50.1 26 9 7 1 0 19 68
2004 A-Rome 10 5 2.25 26 22 1 0 0 132.0 92 41 33 6 7 48 156
2005 AA-Mississippi 9 1 2.09 16 16 0 0 0 86.0 62 25 20 4 2 18 104
2005 A-Myrtle Bch 3 3 1.08 7 7 0 0 0 41.2 20 6 5 1 0 8 59
2005 AAA-Richmond 1 3 3.48 6 6 0 0 0 33.2 21 13 13 4 1 10 30



PRESEASON FANTASY OUTLOOK

The 24-year-old James had an impressive minor-league season, going a combined 13-7 with a 2.12 ERA and 193 strikeouts in 161 1/3 innings over 29 starts in the minors. The top pitching prospect could be a solid keeper, but he is not in line to be in the rotation any sooner than a possible midseason call-up when injuries hit -- a la Kyle Davies. Consider the lefty James a decent minor-league keeper option on Draft Day. (Updated 2/6/06)




I can't wait to see what he can do.

His minor league numbers are better than any pitching prospect up this year, but the scouts and experts say he doesn't have enough stuff to compete at the big league level. I guess we'll see who is right here, the stat guys or the scouting guys.

Get ready for an interesting trip.

Very, very solid outing for James today. So what's the deal here? Does he stick in the rotation or just get sent back to the minors after Thomson returns? I'd love to change my smack to "I'm Chuck James b*tch!!" :-b

He'll stick. Who cares if he was only facing the DRays. Cormier will be the one to leave the rotation I would think

Smoltz
Hudson
Ramirez
Thomson
James

Obvioulsy Thomson is on the DL with the blister thing, but Smoltz is a little banged up right now too, so he should have plenty of opportunities to pitch...at least until Davies comes back in August...I hope both the youngsters can find a spot in the rotation personally

Smoltz

Ramirez
Davies
