What is his ETA for the majors? What should be expected of him this season? Long term?

Come on, there's positive feedback up for grabs!

I'm looking at you Rump. :-)

He should be up in the summer and who knows about this season but long term, his average stuff won't be as noticeable once he reaches Pecota, where he should be able to shine anyway thanks to his extreme groundball tendencies.

When should we expect him up? What should we expect this year? What should we expect longer term?

One of the worse deals by the BrewCrew in recent memory. This guy is going to be good, possibly as early as '09. He's got top of the rotation type stuff, but I don't think he pitches much, or at least effectively, in '08. He's only 20 I believe.

Inman is 20 now, will be 21 before the season. He shouldn't help much from a fantasy perspective in '08. He has the command and intangibles a top of the rotation pitcher needs. Inman seems to be a flyball pitcher, but that shouldn't be too much of a dilema in spacious Petco. Long term I say he's a #2 starter as long as he stays healthy.

Inman hit a bit of a wall in AA. He was still "okay" by the time the season shook out, but to me his prospect star fell a bit. I used to rank him and Gallardo kinda 1a and 1b in the Brewers system, but YoGa never had a season with an ERA above 2.90, which occurred in AAA. Inman was sporting a 5.45/1.36 prior to being traded, and then improved a bit in the SD system where he went 4.17/1.27. From the reports I've read, his stuff is really just average, and he projects more to being a bottom of the rotation type guy. My concern while following him is the change in his K/BB rate once he hit AA. But, he will only be 21 this year, he's got time to improve.

Inman has very good control. He doesn't have the best stuff and probably fits in best as a #3, but could pass as a #2 given the right outfield or be a very good #4. I think he needs to work on pitching to contact a little more as he realizes he can't fool as many hitters as he could at lower levels.

Inman could potentially emerge as a starter by season's beginning, if the Padres don't opt to sign someone off the market.

I really think that's optimistic given his struggles in Double-A. He's not ready for a Major League workload to begin with, and he's not ready to be a Major League pitcher. He'll get there, but he needs his time in the minors. He'll be 21 on opening day, no need to push him.
