Deep Sleeper Starting Pitchers?

Postby Phatferd » Mon Mar 29, 2010 7:21 pm

I have a couple of SP on the Dl for the first month (Dice K and Webb) and need to pick up a SP or two and was wondering who some of you Cafe people think are some guys who will be in the rotation to begin the season with a lot of upside. I know these guys will be a stretch, but I just need someone for the next month and if they breakout then great!

I can grab Saunders or Marquis, but I am looking for someone who has some upside be it a young guy or a pitcher who hasn't reached their potential...

Homer Bailey, Justin Masterson, Fausto Carmona, Daniel McCutchen, Luke Hochevar deep enough? Travis Wood could be a good sleeper also if he wins the #5 job.

Not sure how much of a sleeper he is, but I am rolling the dice on Ian Kennedy this year. By no means is he in my starting rotation, but rather he is my seventh arm that I hope will develop into a nice 4/5 when match-ups are right. I think he should do well pitching against the mediocre NL West and think he is worth a look depending on league depth and starting requirements. -Good luck

Bud Norris, Marc Rzepczynski, Ian Kennedy, Shaun Marcum. Zito was also sneaky good in the second half of '09, with 2.83/1.29 ratios and 74 K in 86 IP for his last 15 starts.

Felipe Paulino, Homer Bailey, Sean Gallagher, and even Trevor Cahill (if he earns the final rotation spot in Oakland).
