Guess who??? If you guessed Roy Halladay your right. Not at all saying he is the next Doc but there are a lot of fantasy relevant pitchers and some aces who had bad minor league stats. Sometimes it just clicks for guys at the right time.
BTW- Those terrible stats were good enough to earn him 2011 aaa pitcher of the year! ITS PCL! Very hard for a pitcher to excel, its where hitters absolutely tear the cover off the ball.
You are looking at the wrong things here is all I'm going to say. When you evaluate a pitcher without a track record the first thing you want to do is throw ERA out the window. Those stats for Halladay show a ton more promise than the ones for Mendoza. Especially for fantasy purposes though, if Mendoza only manages 81 K in 144 IP in AAA he is going to find it hard to be worth owning in most fantasy leagues this year when that rate goes down with the jump to the majors.
