Matt Garza

Postby sixer03fan » Thu Mar 22, 2007 1:03 am

Is he in the rotation or not? I've heard that he might start the season as the odd man out. Is this true?

and also, who's a better sleeper to keep at the bottom of my staff..

Garza or Gorzellany?

The pitching stats are: wins, k's, k/9, whip, saves

Ponson is still the favourite to claim the final position despite Garza's solid spring. It appears that the Twins want Garza to get a few more innings at Triple-A. They will likely start with Ponson knowing that if he struggles (or drops a box of donuts on his foot and ends up on the DL), they could recall Garza at any time. Garza is apparently not quite ready to stretch beyond 5 innings anyways. Given his assortment of pitches however, it seems likely that in the not to distant future, Garza will be the no. 2 starter in Minnesota after Santana.

Gorzelanny is a fine young pitcher, but I'm siding with Garza regarding the keeper question. He appears to have all the tools to be very good.

I'd say by june garza is in that rotation for good. I can't believe they actually are willing to trot guys like ponson/silva out every 5th day over him.

Yeah, it'll be Silva that he replaces. Gardy has him on a short leash and is vocally frustrated with him. I wouldn't doubt if Silva doesn't show anything in the next spring game that Garza gets the job out of camp. That's pure speculation, but Gardenhire's not happy with Silva.

yeah, its like the Mets. they will continue to trot out scrubs to be their 5th starter just so they can keep heilman buried in the bullpen. both those young pitchers have good potential but i will side with garza mainly because the twins are a better squad.

Garza will be in the rotation sooner rather than later. One of the Silva-Ponson duo is bound to fail, if not both. When that happens, Garza will be up for good.

Sorry to add a question on top of this, but it's kind of related. What about Slowey? I heard he's got a very high ceiling, any chance he gets a rotation spot before Garza?
