Gustafson said Chacin has thrown 143 1/3 innings and might be kept on restricted innings for the rest of this season. . . . good idea

The kid will fly through the system next year like Morales last year. I can't wait to see him :-)

Gamel and Laporta, Wieters are unavailable but once they play in a game I can pick them up off waivers. I dont really need any of them but it's nice to add extra depth. I'm just wondering who the more informed people believe will get called up. I'm afraid i might waste my waiver priority on someone and see laporta/Wieters get called up afterwards and miss out on them because i was impatient.


In a dynasty league I would save it for Price (likely) or Wieters (unlikely). They are, by far, the highest rated players in the minors right now, and will be the most valuable to you long term. Price could be a top 5 pitcher within a short period of time, and Wieters may well be the top fantasy catcher in short order. As good as LaPorta/Gamel can be, there will still be a dozen guys at 1B/3B/DH who can do what they can do, I don't see the same thing with Price or Wieters.

What about Adam Miller? I would be amazed if Cleveland didn't give him a handful of starts to see what he has.

I believe he just started throwing again and if successful I wouldn't be surprised if he did get a look late especially if they can waiver-trade Paul Byrd as many think they will.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Gio Gonzalez is "a strong candidate" to be called up from Triple-A to start Thursday.
It would be the 22-year-old southpaw's major league debut. The A's had been planning on Dan Meyer making the start, but he threw four innings out of the bullpen Monday, leaving Lenny DiNardo as the only other candidate on the roster. Acquired from the White Sox in the Nick Swisher deal, Gonzalez is one of the game's better left-handed pitching prospects and has 128 strikeouts in 123 innings at Triple-A, but his 68 walks make it unlikely that he's ready to thrive in the majors yet.

I really like Gio but I doubt he will contribute this year. He's been so spotty with his control all season.

I'd also expect Scherzer to have a pretty significant role as well. Perhaps as a starter or the main set up guy.
