I realize he won't help as much in the K area, but he has excellent control, and (I think) is an extreme groundball pitcher. Could be Brandon Webb II.

When does he get called up? Is he the first to get called up if Byrd and Jason Johnson continue to suck up the place?

I think Sowers is the call up once the Indians realize that Byrd and/or Johnson just can't get it done. I saw him pitch several times last year, and even though his stuff is not dominant, his location is pretty much dominant. He basically threw 4 pitches and had very good control over all 4 pitches. He will never be a huge K guy, but he will pitch deep into games for his team and keep them in the game as well. I would label him a mix between Buerhle and Glavine a bit.

Mis other minor league numbers looked good but this year if I'm reading this right he has 67ip, 52h, 11r, 7er, 1hr, 18bb, 37k

For AAA a 2-1 k/bb ratio and a 4.97 k/9 ratio is very disappointing. Even if he is a ground ball pitcher those ratios would not cut it. Given his much better numbers in the past though this season's lower k's and higher walks may just be an aberration.

His WHIP is up from years before (1.11) in the minors, as it was 1.08 before that :-b I wouldn't be too concerned but Sowers isn't one of those power pitchers you would be hoping that come out of the minors (Liriano, Verlander, Hamels)
