Callup: Adenhart Debuts Tonight!

Postby Havok1517 » Thu May 01, 2008 12:43 pm

The Los Angeles Times reports that Nick Adenhart will be called up from Triple-A to make his major league debut Thursday night against the A's.

A 21-year-old former first-round pick who is 4-0 with a 0.87 ERA at Triple-A, Adenhart will be working on just three days rest after tossing 98 pitches over eight innings of one-run ball Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday that Adenhart will likely make three starts, filling a rotation spot until John Lackey returns from the disabled list. He's one of the better right-handed pitching prospects around and is worth grabbing in AL-only leagues.

Add him to the list of guys that will need to be added to Yahoo. With Masterson and Arredondo being the others (still waiting).

I'm very curious as to whether or not he can keep his walks down...

That dropped flyball by Cust was a little league play. I can't believe a professional baseball player could actually have the ball touch every part of the pocket and have it pop out like that.

That's what happens when you have 4 DHs. :-D
Don't see me complaining, they are scoring lots of runs. :-D B-)

Well, at least the owners who lost out on Cueto and Scherzer due to lack of No. 1 waiver will have a shot at this kid ... from anywhere in the waiver priority spectrum, most likely. :-°
