Attn Cubs Fans...Who's Pignatiello? Possible Sleeper?

Postby Magnus_CA » Mon Mar 31, 2008 12:46 pm

He beat out Sean Marshall and per Yahoo! Sports had a nice Spring...

Mar 30 LHP Carmen Pignatiello made the Opening Day roster ahead of Sean Marshall. Both had been vying to be the lone lefty out of the bullpen in the absence of Scott Eyre, who is on the disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Pignatiello had an 0.87 ERA in 11 spring games. He pitched in four big-league games last year. Marshall was optioned to Class AAA Iowa, where he will start.


Who's seen this guy pitch? Possibly a good source of holds?

He beat him out for a spot in the bullpen, not the rotation. He wont' get holds or saves so I don't see him having a ton of value unless he pitches his way into a bigger role.

I don't know anything about him so cannot comment on how good he is.

He's just another run-of-the-mill middle reliever. Don't waste a roster spot on him.
