Stalking the DL for Pitchers - Who to grab?

Postby dannyjunior » Sun Apr 13, 2008 7:06 pm

I'm thinking of stashing a pitcher in a DL spot, just for the upside. If he's a bust, no real loss. Do you think any of these guys will help me out later in the year, and if so, who's best?

Matt Clement
Mark Mulder
Mark Prior

Mulder might be back soon, he just pitched in A ball and only allowed one baserunner in 5+. I'm also a long-time Prior fan, but just don't know if he'll ever get it together. I don't know if Clement has anything anymore. Thoughts? Guys I'm missing out on?

Depending what happens to Soriano, Mike Gonzalez might be worth checking out.

Last I read he was throwing some bp & may be ready some time in May.

Prior - expected back in June, been throwing the ball pretty well

Gonzalez - could take the closer's job in ATL, wouldn't really count on Soriano staying healthy

Carpenter - could be a real gem for Aug/Sept

I think Mulder and Clement have very little upside so would avoid

Absolutely grab Pedro...he'll be back in another 4-6 weeks or so. Prior is another good option since he's been throwing the ball well. Not sure about Carpenter. If they're out of contention then they may not be in a hurry to get him bacvk.

Obviously Pedro and Randy Johnson (coming off DL today). I would add Slowey and Duchscherer.
