Thoughts on Slowey?

Postby kcs261 » Sat May 31, 2008 6:26 pm

He seems to be pitching pretty well right now. He seems like a guy to keep an eye on. Any insight?

Slowey was a very deep sleeper coming into 2008.

In 2007, as a rookie with eleven starts, he held the following line:
66.2 IP: 4-1, 47 K, 11 BB, 4.72 ERA, 1.40 WHIP

If you consider that four of those eleven walks came in one game (Jun 17 vs. Mil), and five of those eleven starts were of good quality, Slowey looked pretty good in his first year.

This year, if you throw out his single April start, his May stat line is as follows:
31.1 IP: 2-3, 22 K, 6 BB, 2.87 ERA, 1.02 WHIP

That's pretty dirty, IMHO. In May he has a K:BB of around 4:1 (which coincides with 2007), allowing no more than three runs in a start. I wouldn't count on 15 wins, but good ratios and some Ks to boot, with about 10-13 wins is reachable. I just added him in a couple of leagues and am confident with him here on out.

I'm also thinking about picking up Slowey. He's not quite as sexy of a pickup as Kershaw and some of the other young guns, but you cant argue with results.
