What's the word on this recent Phillies call up? I'm a casual Phillies fan, and have to admit I don't know much about him. However, he's pitching a decent game so far, giving up 4 hits, 2 runs in 5 innings striking out 6.

Evidently you're a casual fan, period. No problem there. Here's the skinny on Telemaco. Pitched in the bigs from '96-01, bouncing back and forth from AAA to the show. Sometime starter, more long reliever. Career #'s are 22-28, 5.13, monstrous WHIP, around 6 K's per 9 IP on average. Has always had decent stuff, but when he blows up, it's REAL ugly.

Blew out his arm in '01, and has now battled back after a hot run in the minors recently. But the track record is crystal clear, so don't get too excited about tonight's fine performance.

Telemaco was back the Phillies dugout yesterday and was probably the most thankful person in the Vet. He hasn't been in that dugout since 2001 and the Phillies have him slated for Sunday night's televised start against the Cardinals. Telemaco's last season was very special, 10-9 record, 3.24ERA, and 0.95WHIP (125H, 22BB in 155 1/3IP). He is certainly worth a gamble in keeper leagues, especially NL-only.

Telemaco, a 29 year old right hander, was called up to replace the deposed Brandon Duckworth and will get the start Sunday against the Cardinals. At AAA-Scranton, Telemaco has been very effective: 10-9 with a 3.24 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP. "He's always thrown strikes," Bowa said. "When you throw strikes you have a chance to make a play." Telemaco has been around awhile, having last pitched in the majors in 2001 for the Phillies, going 5-5 with a 5.54 ERA. He had surgery in 2001, and was hasn’t recovered fully until this season. Amaury’s AAA numbers are impressive. If you need an arm, he could be worth a gamble.
