His innings increased has been ideal, providing consideration for a long-healthy career. He's had a solid K/9 rate, averaging about 1k per through the minors and with 80ks in 100 innings in the majors last year. He's what, 25?
And as a nice aside for us fantasy gamers, he is about the 5th best SP on the Twins at this point so he'll be pithcing against alot of other 4/5 pitchers. And that should bode well for his win total.
Actually he's their 3rd starter at this point.
Sorry to hijack the thread, but just wanted to clear this up.
Twins signed RHP Sidney Ponson to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Ponson will get a one-year, $1 million contract if he makes the team and could earn an additional $2 million in incentives. The 30-year-old will battle Matt Garza, Scott Baker and Glen Perkins for two rotation spots behind Johan Santana, Carlos Silva and Boof Bonser. Maybe he can be an adequate fifth starter, but it seems doubtful that he'll be of any use in AL-only leagues.
