Pedro

Postby bologna_sandwich » Sun Mar 25, 2007 8:20 pm

I've been reading from Rotoworld that Pedro is making good progress.....he may pitch immediately following the All-Star game and yesterday he threw 125 pitches from 75 feet. And is said to be looking good.

Is he worth a late round(20th-21st) round draft pick??
My league has a DL spot and I wouldnt mind stashing him for the 2nd half of the year.

He's definately worth a DL spot IMO. I drafted him in the 21st (out of 23 rounds) in my league. But then again my league has 3 DL spots so it makes much more sense from my standpoint. Still it is a very good investment for the 2nd half of the season. ;-D

Hey, I've been wondering something about Pedro and would love anyone familiar with the injury to post an update here...

There are people saying he may not be back this year and even the optimists are saying August. At the same time Pedro is out there throwing from 125 feet in MARCH. Something here doesn't add up for me but it may just be that I need more details on the rehab process for the surgery that he had. Seems to me a guy that can long-toss from 125 feet shouldn't be more than a month or two away but no one - even the most optimistic people - are saying anything better than 4+ months.

omar minaya doesnt want any pressure on him to come back too early. thats why they are talking around august. minaya said that people shouldnt expect anything from him this year, that next year is when he should be 100% for the whole season. they are walking on eggshells with him because they dont really know how hard he'll be able to throw until he gets on a mound. the other aspect is his control from not throwing for all these months. honestly fellas, no one will be able to tell you anything until some time passes. youre gonna hear some people say he'll be fine and others that say wait and see. realistically the mets probably wont have to rush him back if maine, perez, and pelfrey hold up the back end of the rotation. plus remember, he is going to need a full "spring training" when he does get back into the swing of things. expect a month in the minors.

That makes a bit more sense. From what you're saying he could toe the rubber and pitch in a month or two (maybe sooner) but the velocity might not be back yet, the command could be sketchy...we just don't know. He could be back much earlier or never depending on how his arm reacts to the surgery and that's something we won't know until it unfolds. Toss in NY spin control and you've got a situation where reality might not match the spin on a fairly regular basis.

I drafted him in my CBS league and am encouraged by the latest news on him. However, our league, with 2 DL spots, only allows players on the DL as MLB lists them, for me to place him there. Just wonder why the Mets haven't designated him there just yet? Hopefully that designation will come upon the finalization of their opening day roster.
