Clayton Mortensen SP STL

Postby AussieDodger » Wed Apr 16, 2008 8:15 am

I just drafted Clayton Mortensen in a dynasty league (we had a special draft for the 2007 draftees).
Is he as good as his numbers suggest?
The only thing I can find about him is a rumour of a "power sinker" and that's it.

Well he was 22 in A ball last year so he was a little old. And he's had 1 solid start and 1 crappy start in AA this year as a 23 year old. He wasn't electric in college either...solid but not electric. Not sure I'd get overly excited about him.

I like Mortensen. Depending on where you drafted him, Mortensen is definitely worth taking a flyer on and storing on your minor league roster. With St. Louis' aging staff, he Mortensen definitely will be seriously considered as a starter in the bigs.

as far as i know he is a groundball pitcher who can get the K every once in a while. I like him to be a decent 3-4 starter, maybe like an Aaron Cook with more K's and a better ERA
