Rockies sign Oswalt

Postby Millhouse » Thu May 02, 2013 6:26 pm

Acc'd to Rotoworld, elsewhere. He didn't fare too well in Texas, so moving to another hitter's park with another half-year of tread on his arm is probably an "avoid at all costs" kind of situation.

But thoughts on this?

The WW is so thin on pitchers with any promise right now that I may grab him just because.

Don't. I was fooled last year and it did not turn out well.

His peripherals were good last year, and even though Coors isn't inspiring, he could at least be useful in divisional road games. At least worth monitoring for now.

Oswalt hasn't been on my radar with how he pitched last year, but I was surprised to hear he was sitting at 92 and topped out at 95 on Sunday. Thoughts on his value at Colorado?

As opposed to what Lincecum and Haren have been doing thus far?

I'll take a chance...

I think there should be low expectations.

while his numbers right now in AAA look nice (2.16 ERA/ 0.93 WHIP), I imagine he has also been lucky. his BABIP this season with those numbers in AAA is .218 BABIP with 87.5 LOB%.
even in the minors, he's not getting many K's. 6.75 K/9.
if you're in a really deep league maybe you can take a chance. but in a standard league I wouldn't touch him. if you're planning on using Oswalt in road games and/or based on match ups, I think you could do just as well streaming a specific pitcher.
