Any love for Kris Medlen?

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:16 pm

Guy doesn't seem to be getting a whole lot of hype, but he's quietly putting together quite a nice season. 6-1, 3.16 ERA, 1.15 WHIP. What do you guys think? Can he keep it up for the 2nd half?

I think so. The thing that worries me about him is that his innings will probably be limited in the 2nd half, a la Phil Hughes.

He came in relief the other night. Is his rotation spot even secure anymore with Jurrjens back now?

Yes, it is. They moved Kawakami to the pen when Jurjens came back.

I think the only reason Medlan came out of the pen this weekend is because he won't pitch this week because of the all star break.

That was my guess also but just wanted to be clear before I started pimping him. :-)

Love his K/BB ratio of 65/17... his Babip and Strand are a little lucky but not out of line. He will be quite good the rest of the year... only a potential innings limit may hamper his production.
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

Jason Grey has been pimping him out all season, and rightfully so. His minor league track record is excellent, and as was mentioned earlier, he hasn't been overly lucky thus far. While I can see a late season innings reduction, he's been a great #4 for me, and I'll be targeting him heavily next season as well.
