If the topic is prospects for this year, then Taillon is out. Matt Moore is a great K prospect but I feel that Alex Torres is more MLB ready for the Rays. I think that Danny Duffy is the "hottest" prospect or the next prospect of value to be called up. There are 3 guys I'm really watching for late year callups. Drew Pomeranz, Matt Harvey, and Rubby De La Rosa. De La Rosa may be up mid-summer, he's just filthy!!

Pomeranz, Harvey anbd Rubby would all merit a top WW pick up imo... i dont think either makes it but out of the group i like Pomeranz the most

Doesn't really matter how good the prospect is I'm not using my top waiver wire pick on a pitcher. They universally will be shut down before the end of the season or moved to the bullpen. I guess the one exception is a guy like Storen who was the closer of the future and could actually finish the season. I much prefer to use my waivers on vets or hitters.

It would give them the Royals the opportunity to bring up a Duffy or Montgomery and use them in the bullpen and keep their innings down. Crow didn't blow away minor league hitters but has been dominating so far against the majors. He looked great the other night even the second time through the lineup.


Where are you getting your information regarding the Royals? You have gone from Hosmer getting a call this year as "unlikely" and now this. You need to try to find another source. Duffy will not be going to the pen. He will be here in June for those of you trying to make roster decisions (starting).

While a couple of months is a ton of time in baseball terms and a lot can happen between now and then, I would be interested in hearing how you expect it to play out for both Duffy and Montgomery to be up within weeks like you claimed in the Hosmer thread. With one open spot on the 40 man roster after the Blanco trade and the time bomb that is Kyle Davies I can certainly see room for one promotion assuming they aren't trying to keep the roster spot open for Kendall's return.

From the looks of things Teaford is being used more as a bullpen guy now so that leaves Pucetas as the only viable starter left on the 40 to be called up. And I wouldn't think Suppan would get the nod before either prospect so the pecking order looks great for them to get here. What isn't clear at all is what role they will take when they are here. Chen should be back in the rotation by June, Tejada should be back in the bullpen before that. So in order to get Duffy and Montgomery into the rotation in weeks will mean that the Royals have to clear one spot on the 40 and three spots in the current rotation (2 for the prospects and 1 for Chen).

Any inside information from your sources?

I'll agree with a couple of the previous opinions i.e. Duffy will be next and is just around the corner (should be June) sometime. And Moore is a year away. Tampa never rushes their kids although I could see him promoted to Durham for the second half of the season.
