McClung called up (Merged)

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Starkmadfan » Sun Jul 30, 2006 9:57 pm

From Rotowire:

McClung, who is being converted to a closer at Triple-A Durham, could be called up "relatively soon," the Tampa Tribune reports. So far in 15.1 innings at Durham, McClung has four saves, a 2.35 ERA and a whopping 25:2 K:BB ratio.


Of course, who knows what "relatively soon" means.........

McClung might not close over Brian Meadows right away, but manager Joe Maddon has said he intends to plug him into that role at some point. He's worth picking up in all formats.

McClung has a 100+ MPH fastball, 3 other MLB worthy pitches, a K man, experience, and no other true options in the pen to contend with.

Carmona has none of those things.

Experience all right...experience at stinking it up. 100mph fastball? I'd like to see it. He looks good in AAA right now, but the big boys arent going to swing at bad pitches out of the zone

He also has dyslexia and a fear for mean people that bash him on the internet according to this article.

I hope he succeeds, just dont want to see a bunch of people hype him up for no reason and get all dissapointed when he turns out turnbow quality appearances
