Beachy, Pineda come to mind.


Agreed.

So I got burned by Hudson and Luebke each needing another TJ surgery but I'm ready to roll the dice again. Who should I be looking at?

This may seem idiotic, but look at the last post. Beachy and Pineda still come to mind.

I drafted Beachy last year and I've got my eye on Pineda. It's pitchers that won't be back until well into the season, like Chad Billingsley, that I'm referring to.

Derek Holland is a good one, IMO. Still has upside from where he's been the last few years but will miss a couple months or so, so he's pretty cheap. Also it's a knee injury so IMO there's less performance risk once he's right than if he hurt his arm.

Gavin Floyd should be worth a gamble, moving to a much better park for pitchers. Dylan Bundy might now be easier to acquire but his prospect ratings seem to have only gone down slightly.

What's up with Danny Duffy? He was a target of mine last year...

I drafted him for $1 and it looks like he'll start the year in the KC rotation. It's the 2014 version of Beachy and Duffy that I'm looking for now.

I don't think they've got a 5th starter decided yet...could easily be Ventura at #5 and they put Duffy down in the minors to continue to work on his shaky command.

Has his velocity returned? Personally I'm hoping he starts the year in the minors so i can sneak him in the reserve rounds of my al-only dynasty league.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
