Jonathan Meloan and other relievers

Postby bigwords » Tue Dec 05, 2006 6:25 pm

My league places incredible value on middle relievers who can strike out a ton and I'm looking for next year's version of Jonathan Broxton or Pat Neshek.

Anyone know how close to the majors Meloan is?
Macay McBride?
Juan Salas going to stick?
Anyone else?

If he stays in the pen Jonathan Sanchez could rack up a lot of K's. Also Tankersley is a great sleeper closer for next year. I doubt he is still around in your league though.

I don't think you'll see Jonathan Sanchez coming out of the bullpen.

Does anyone else have any information on relief pitchers. I have Meloan in may league and a another future closer may be J. Brent Cox who is expected to take over from Rivera for the Yankee's. Any other ideas? What do people think of Leonel Rosales?

Just out of curiosity, why is Meloan so considered to be relief pitcher? In other words, why do the Dodgers think he'd be unsuccesful as a starter?

He threw short outings regularly this season because of issues with a sore elbow (might have been shoulder) but should be starting next season. He definitely has the potential to be a starting pitcher with a 93-95 fb w/good movement and an incredible plus curveball. With the results he had there's no doubt in my mind the Dodgers will want him ito try starting in 2007. The issue though is whether or not he'll be able to throw enough innings.

I said McBride by the way when I meant to say Marcus McBeth.

I need an 8th inning setup man.... for holds. Is McBeth worth a shot?
Do you think they will throw him in ASAP?



"McBeth joins a bullpen that has been a big factor in Cincinnati's 15-24 start. The Reds are in last place in the NL Central, have lost four straight games on their West Coast trip and nine of their last 11 overall.

ADVERTISEMENT
The Reds got McBeth from Oakland as part of a deal on April 25 for outfielder Chris Denorfia. The right-hander had nine saves in 10 chances for Triple-A Sacramento and Louisville, compiling a 1.50 earned run average in 16 appearances.

The Reds have been looking for someone to fill a set-up role in the bullpen. Left-hander Mike Stanton and right-hander Todd Coffey have struggled. "
