Alright, we're nearly a quarter of the way throught the season, and for the most part Joba's pitched at a level we all expected him to out of the pen, thus far......G
- 2Hits -
- 1.04Hlds -
- .250BB/PA -
While also having a FB%
of nearly 35% and and incredibly low LD%
of nearly 16%
Obviously this season, he's remained incredibly impressive......and although not being on par across the board with last year's incredible debut.........he's proving last season was obviously no fluke, and that he's the real deal. (as if we didn't know)
Pre season we all had long in depth discussion's about Joba's progression as a pitcher and what we saw his 2008 season turning out like..........
My question now is, with a 1/4 of the season almost done........and the time of him heading to the minors to stretch him arm out, and inevitably entering the rotation, probably not that far off........I'm curious to hear from my cafe mates, as to what they currently think he'll be like once he hits the rotation, and if anything you've seen from him thus far, gives you any extra insight, into how that transition, might go.
Interested in hearing everyone's thoughs.........and if possible some final season projections.
