rookie/young pitchers

Postby pat1999 » Fri Jul 28, 2006 10:14 am

all liriano owners are loving what they see from young francisco right now...but he has only 130 career ip and a long road to go towards stardom.

can anyone remember some rookie pitchers who bursted onto the scene but faded away soon after?

Lirano should not follow the path of duke or oliver perez. Liriano is a power pitcher with control, while perez is power pitcher but very wild. Duke isnt a power pitcher, hes more finess and his best pitch is his curveball i believe.

why wouldnt lirano fade (atleast as far as the rest of this year is concerned)? young power pitcher, wouldnt it be safe to assume he will tire as the months drag on and with that his control will fade?

thanks for the replies. i think too many people around the fantasy world are automatically assuming that liriano will definetly be a top 5 pitcher next season.

Liriano did pitch 190 innings last year between AA, AAA, and the majors. Since he has pitched that amount of innings so far, and he has only pitched 109 innings this year, I think you could assume that he should be OK this year as well.
