Young Arms to Target LATE

Postby GreatestShowOnEarth » Fri Feb 27, 2009 9:25 pm

My keeper draft is winding down and i was trying to think of some young arms that may have or be competing for a rotation spot this spring. Here are a few that i came up with.

Nick Adenhart - bad show performance last year but there is no doubt about what hes capable of.
Gio Gonzalez - Tim Lincecum lite anyone?
David Purcey
Adam Miller - sounds like he has a rotation spot. should improve on last years numbers

this may not relate to this year but would Madison Bumgarner probably be looking at 2010/2011?

Kyle Davies, seems strange to still think of him as "young" but he finished last season looking like he could actually live up to some of his promise. He has locked a spot in the Royals rotation.

I like Anthony Reyes from CLE, but you need to be AL-Only or a really deep league to draft him....could suprise though, was good after being traded last year.

Wait did you just compare Gio Gonzales to Tim Lincecum?

Guys I will be looking at in the "late rounds" (taken from pick 210+ in my CBS money draft)

Manny Parra
Oliver Perez
Wandy
J Sanchez
Buchholz


A lot of the names mentioned here were not even drafted and this went about 280 deep.

Guys I like after that are:

Purcey
De La Rosa
H Bailey (yes, I still have faith, why? I have no clue)
D Holland (Apparently his FB touched 99 last year, out of no where. Has another plus pitch as well.)

Pelfrey, Hughes, Parra, Reyes, Buchholz, Anibal Sanchez are the guys that come to mind. Marshall could be decent if he gets a chance in OAK.

As far as rookies go, keep a close eye on Hanson and Feliz.
