Eligible RP's that will be starters?

Postby Redlegs » Sun Mar 15, 2009 7:24 pm

I'm looking to get some RP eligible pitchers that will actually start so I can be more versatile with my roster.

I currently have Masterson and am looking for another.

Please post any of these pitchers that may be worth a pick up.

Thanks in advance and I'll post some when I come across them.

Another is S.Marshall of ChC, but he was drafted by another team.

Out of genie's list, these look the most promising;

Joba
Anthony Reyes
Sean Marshall
Dallas Braden
Bradon Morrow (If he's actually healthy)
Kuo

Keep an eye out for rookies that are promoted and started off slow. Chris Carpenter may see some bullpen work, along with Scherzer, Price (when he's first brought up).
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I doubt Masterson will start either. He has proven he can pitch in relief. Although he is having a good spring, my hunch is that the Sox would prefer Buchholz (who's also having a strong spring) to start if Penny isn't ready.

J.A. Happ is pitching very well this spring and looks to lock down the 5th spot in the rotation over Chan Ho Park (another SP/RP btw) as Kendrick and Carrasco have both struggled through the spring.

Nate Robertson

Have watched this bulldog alot over the last few years, when he is on he is pretty good, problem is he hasn't been on that much over the last couple of years.

Looks like he'll open up in the pen and more than likely get long relief or situational outs....but he still has an outside shot at Starting...either way I expect him to make the club and may be a deep, deep flier.

Nate Robertson. He turned in his strongest outing of the exhibition season. He replaced Willis and went three shutout innings. He allowed one hit and got the win.

"I tried to focus on ... starting the pitch down the middle and let the action of the pitch do what it's supposed to," Robertson said.

Robertson is competing for the fifth spot with Willis, Zach Miner and Rick Porcello. Porcello's next start, scheduled for today, was pushed back a few days Saturday because he suffered a cut finger in a fielding drill.
