What SP is next?

Postby yanks924 » Sat May 31, 2008 12:54 am

I am looking to add pitching to my team but do not want to take chances on guys on FA in my league. Who is the next SP to come up that could make an impact??

I actually just wrote some updates on AAA prospects. I don't believe that a high impact pitcher will be coming soon, unless Tampa feels like they have no other choice but to call up Price.

price won't be up this year ^^^. tampa doesn't bring up young pitchers unless they have thrown a minimum of 100 innings in the minors first which price has a long way to go considering he has only made 2 starts. also he isn't the first on the rays list of pitching call-ups. both wade davis and jake mcgee are more ready and will be called up before price.

Charlie Morton (Atl-P) 2.14 ERA, 48 K’s in 59 IP for AAA Richmond. Morton continues to shine, and he has been on a hot streak since last year's fall league. He has held opposing hitters to a paltry .198 batting average. Don't be surprised to see Atlanta bring Morton up for a few spot starts, as he has been a favorite of Bobby Cox

Ryan Feierabend (Sea-P) 2.15 ERA, 33 K’s in 46 IP for AAA Tacoma. Feierabend still continues to impress in Tacoma. He has limited batters to a .233 average. Feierabend doesn't wow with his K/9IP ratio, but he is managing to find a way to get hitters out in AAA. The Mariners are struggling in last, so they may take a shot with the young hurler if the season becomes a wash.

Tyler Clippard (Was-P) 3.93 ERA, 53 K’s in 52.2 IP for AAA Columbus. There was a time where Clippard was considered a potential face in the Yankees' rotation for years to come. He has now resurfaced for the Nats in AAA, where Clippard is striking out 9.06 batters per 9 innings. At this time, Clippard will most likely get the call up to the Nats over fellow teammate Collin Balester

Daryl Thompson (Cin-P) 0.00 ERA, 6 K’s in 7 IP for AAA Louisville. Thompson breezed through AA Chattanooga with a 1.76 ERA and 8.22 K/9IP ratio, which warranted him a callup to AAA. In his first start with Louisville, Thompson did not disappoint. With the overload of young starters in Cincinatti, Thompson most likely will finish out the season in AAA. If he continues to impress, though, then the Reds may take a shot at placing him in the 5th spot.

hopefully this will help you out!
good-luck

I disagree. I think there will be a few high level pitching prospects coming up fairly soon in Carrasco (I honestly think he could be an ace), Chris Volstad, Gio Gonzalez, Eric Hurley, Chris Tillman, Michael Bowden, Adam Miller (if he can get off the DL with blisters), Jake McGee maybe, possibly Jamie Garcia.

Homer Bailey will be called up this week.

Carrasco does have the stuff, but he hasn't shown control yet. Volstad hasn't really shown any domination in the minors, and the Marlins have several other more deserving pitchers to call up before him. I like Gio a lot, and he could get the call, but will Oakland really put him in the rotation? They already bumped one starter who was holding his own, so wouldn't he get first crack if a spot opened up again? Hurley and Tillman still have to prove that they are worthy of being a high level pitcher. I like Bowden, but same as Gio, where do you put him? Miller may get a call up, but who knows in Cleveland (Sowers is sitting in AAA with great #s). McGee is supposedly being groomed for the pen, and Garcia is too young for a call this year.
