Justin Duchscherer worth a look?

Postby kcs261 » Mon Aug 25, 2003 10:27 pm

Rotoworld says he could come up from AAA and start Thursday. Anybody think this is a guy to jump on? Rotoworld says AL-only, but I would think the kid would have some mixed league potential as well.

Justin Duchscherer - R - Oakland Athletics Aug 25

Manager Ken Macha said he still hasn't determined his starter for Thursday's game against Baltimore, though the team is leaning toward calling up Justin Duchscherer from Triple-A Sacramento.
Duchscherer improved to 13-2 Saturday and would be on turn to pitch Thursday. He'd be worth a pickup in AL-only leagues and could have a rotation spot the rest of the way if he impresses.

I think you should take a flyer on him just because when I read his name I read it as "Doosh-sharer". That guy must be quite a pimp. LOL.

Im sorry, I really don't have any relevant information for you, I have never heard of this kid, I just wanted to share the brief smile that crossed my face when I read that name.
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.

He may not be receiving Harden-esque hype, but Duchscherer has good stuff and a very high ceiling. He's a gamble for this season who could provide nice dividends no matter what your league format is, but also carries a high risk. Don't expect too much just yet, but he's definitely worth a look in keeper leagues.
