Which injury prone SP is the best sleeper?

Postby jerkfries2000 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 10:25 pm

Who would you pick up and why?

Brad Penny
Anibal Sanchez
Justin Duchscherer

I have one open spot in my rotation and I think all are good sleeper candidates only on waivers because they are injury prone.

Thanks.

You won't be able to use Duchscherer for at least 3 months.

Do you rank Boston's #5 or (#5a if you flip Wakefield in as a spot starter) over Florida's #4?

I wouldn't be able to ignore Sanchez raw talent.

Anibal and Penny aren't worth owning even if they're healthy. Duke is a legitimate Cy Young candidate.

I had a similar situation and went with Anibal.

He says he feels much better this year so I think he makes a good sleeper option.

And? I'd rather have 3 months of Duke than a single day with Anibal or Penny.

Shawn Hill - now pitching in Petco for the Pads - is deep sleeper. Always had talent, never stayed healthy. And that park always helps.

Not sold yet on Duke... If he is so Mr. Cy Young, its odd that it took him 5 years in Oakland to crack the starting rotation. I'm not saying last year was a fluke, but it was a weird year with Duke, Gavin Floyd, and Cliff Lee all exploding out of nowhere.

I'm interested in why Anibal isn't worth owning if healthy. He had excellent MiLB numbers (his K and BB rates were borderline elite) and decent 1/2 season in 2006 (ERA good, K and BB rates bad). And then he underwent TJ surgery and came back posing strong K rates last season while typically control is the last thing that returns after TJ.

He's one of my top SP sleepers this year.
