Anyone heard of this kid with Florida? His stats look OK but not great. He has wins over the Yanks, Nats, and Astros and gave up no runs in any of those games ;-D . But bombed in a game against Boston and Washington :-P . (The Boston game was a game that Moehler left in the first hurt.) Minor league stats show about 7 k/9 and a whip of 1.20. I know rookie pitchers are a dime a dozen but could he be worth a flyer in a 12 team h2h league? :-?

I'm seriously considering grabbing him for a 2-start week next week. It's hard to ignore 0 runs and 3 hits in his past 14 innings, but the 2 shellings before that kind of make you scratch your head. :-?

Think he would be a better bet for a 2-start next week than Jeff Francis?

Francis - St. Louis and San Diego, both at home.

Sanchez - @Atlanta, @Philly

Im not too sure against Atlanta but Philly definetely. Atlanta has actually been hot of late with double digit runs in the past couple of games. Could it be the start of a streak ..... :-? ?

According to ESPN, the Braves have a minor leaguer set to pitch that game by the name of Shiell.

I don't think I would really risk it at this point. I would grab him though if he can hold steady after his two starts next week.

ive been keeping a very close eye on him lately. if you look at his game log he either pitches a gem or gets shelled. pick him up if your desperate but he could be a good sleeper pick for next year as he gets some more confidence, experience, and consistency.

I would take a flier on him. In the Washington game, he gave up 5er in the first before really settling down. He didn't even start the Boston one. Other than those 2 outings, he's been really good. You know hes for real too, because he was the key player outside of Hanley back in the Josh Beckett deal.

This kdi has good stuff, a breaking ball he can throw over for K's and a mid 90's fastball. He's still pretty raw though and had an easy time with weak lineups like Hou and Was. He's gold in a keeper/dynasty league but i wouldnt risk starting him against the top teams just yet.

The last time I checked the Yankees do not have a weak lineup

And the Boston game should be counted out because he didn't even start that game

You may have a point, but it wasnt nearly at it's full potential that day. It was the second half of a double header so some injury-replacement starters were sitting. Not to mention the Yankees always have trouble against pitchers they see for the first time. Dotn get me wrong im as high on this kid as anybody can be, i just think you should tread cautiously w/ rookie pitchers.
