Since I've been hammered by pitching injuries and haven't had spare roster space, I missed stashing Lincecum (and now Gallardo), I'm going to go ahead an pick this kid up. Who's with me? Anyone?

Count me in. ERA and WHIP are down the tube this week, so all I'm interested in is sheer volume of Ks and Ws. Slowey has a good chance of a W with the Twins in hot mode, so he starts for me.

Kevin Slowey, SP, MIN – It's Slowey Time, as today's his Major League debut against the A's. Slowey is a guy you can look to for some help in WHIP in most leagues. He's got elite command of his fastball, not unlike former Twin Brad Radke. He won't give you strikeouts and should allow home runs, so there is some risk here. He could have a Jeremy Sowers debut, where the hits just don't drop in despite a low strikeout rate. Or he could pull a Scott Baker, where pinpoint command leads to a hit parade. Slowey to me looks like one of those guys whose ERA won't match his WHIP, like Dave Bush or Javier Vazquez. AL: $10, Mixed: $1.

Pretty good outing I think going 6 IP and only giving up 1 ER and having 3 K's, I think he will stick around. He was in trouble early but got out of it.
