Whenis his ETA?

He is dominating the PCL in a similar fashion as Lincecum, but the Brewers rotation has been very good this season and it would seem as though it would take a serious slump from Vargas or an injury to the top 4 in order for him to get the call up, unless he goes to the pen.

Anybody have any insider information on him?

I wish I knew. I am extremely high on him. I know I'm in the minority, but I like him more than Lincecum or Hughes. He seems to fly under the radar more than the high profile prospects.

As to his ETA, I would imagine that you're right about a callup not being likely unless there's an injury or a major slump...

I think with Sheets in the rotation an injury isn't a question of if, but when.

I still think they give Villanueva a shot before Gallardo this early in the year.

From Rotoworld.com

Ben Sheets-S- Brewers
Ben Sheets appears to be questionable to make his next start after straining his right groin Wednesday.

Sheets was hurt on his final pitch of the third inning and didn't come back out for the fourth. "It wasn't that it was excruciating, by any means," Sheets said. "There was really no sense in pushing through it and taking that chance right now, especially with the weather the way it was." The Brewers will have a better idea tomorrow when Sheets will pitch next. It's possible we could see Yovani Gallardo if Sheets goes on the DL. If he misses just one start, Carlos Villanueva could receive the assignment.

If a Sheets DL trip happens (I hear an MRI is taking place today), what is the chance Gallardo gets the call? Or will Yost go with Villanueva?

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

You should make a new one this time. Posting your entire team in the middle of a thread really doesn't help it. :-[

Anyways, I'd like to know more about this guy. What kind of pitcher is he? I'll keep my eye on him.

I saw him pitch last year in A ball for the Brevard Manatees. Nasty breaking stuff (iirc, it's a slider primarily), but he was facing the Daytona Cubs, who had next to nobody on their roster. He was very impressive though. I'm definitely going to grab him if he comes up for any amount of time.
