Quick Pick: Zach Wheeler or Shelby Miller?

Postby chargerss24 » Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:47 pm

If you had one minor league slot open for one of these two pitchers. Who would you choose?

For the record, I'd consider it a toss up, though I may lean toward Miller considering he's RP eligible in my league and could have SP/RP eligibility in the near future. WHIR as always! ;-D

I would go with Miller. It is pretty close, but Miller looks to contribute this year and he's on a stronger team than Wheeler will be whenever he shows up.

If you're wanting immediate returns, I think you're right on Miller. In the long run, I think Wheeler has a bit more upside. The difference is very slight though, so I would go with the SP on the better team as well. Depending on your league cats, if Win % is in any way involved, I'd have to go with the guy who's going to get better run support/defense.
