Het, the Dodgers signed this guy to an NRI for ST. Anyone heard of him before? Could he be a sleeper?

He has a career minor league K/9 of 10.1 so he's gotta be good.

Yes, Riley may be one of the top ten best Baseball Leftover threads ever, but there's no doubt the 3 HR one is in the top 3, IMO.

What's odd is I hardly participated in either!

I'm still waiting for the day Aubrey Huff hits 3 ding-dongs off Matt Riley.

No.

Baltimore wrecked him by making him pitch 188 innings at age 19.

He had a 6.53 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP last year in AAA at age 27. It doesn't matter what your K/9 is if you get smashed everywhere. If you can't do well in AAA by age 27, you should give up. ;-)

I heard the Cubs were interested.

P.S. The 3 HR thread is THE greatest fantasy baseball thread of all time.
