Drabek! Pick up now? WHIR

Postby Hopscotch Assasin » Mon Apr 30, 2012 8:51 pm

Dude is killing the Rangers. Is he a immediate pitcher pick up or what?

He may have only allowed two runs, but he left a lot of guys on base. Plus - he was pitching against a Hamilton-less lineup, which makes a big difference.

He has looked much better this season. He isn't a must add though. Depends on league size, who you have, and who else is on the wire.

His walk rate is still worrisome... Expect regression...I would not say that he is a must pick-up considering his tough division...

He has become a nice streaming option / spot starter when good matchups present themselves though

I would tend to agree with this assessment. I have him in my 20 team league and he's certainly relevant in a league that size but I will spot start him based on match up. He isn't really relevant to an owner like the original poster, considering what his staff looks like (Halladay, Hamels, Greinke, Santana, CJ Wilson, etc.).

Agreed. It's a tough division and I'm not sure how many wins he'll get when playing in league. I like the spot start assessment. If it's a deep league and you absolutely need him, I'd maybe grab him. But if you have some solid starters, maybe not. Again, i think it's the amount of desperation you're looking at.

Help?
