Sleeper Pitchers??????

Postby bronxxbomber » Fri May 28, 2004 12:14 pm

Are they any that come to mind. All the sleepers are gone in my 14 team mixed league (Greinke was waivered). Are there any dark horse who can produce as starter or reliever. I need pitching a bit and I'm looking to grab either Juan Cruz or B Kim(boston).

Really depends who's out there. Kim is in Korea now and has injuries up the wazoo, but if he looks like he might return with his old velocity he is a great pickup. Don't see that happening in the near future though. Cruz could be pretty good but I'd check the wire for better relievers. Look for Gregg in Anaheim and Madson in Philly if they're available.
Oliver Perez watch

3-3, 3.74 ERA, 1.15 WHIP in 10 starts

23 BB, 8 HR and 72 K in 65 IP (9.97 K/9)

2 complete games, 1 shutout

This may be a reach, but Brandon Claussen (Reds AAA). Though he will have to pitch in a hitter's park, he has nasty stuff, and was the top prospect in the Yanks system prior to the Boone deal. It appears your league is pretty tough, so off the top of my head, he's the best "sleeper" I can think of. I believe he will be called up sometime before the trade deadline. His ERA and HR allowed may not end up what you are looking for, but he will definitely rack up the K's.

Another sleeper that may be available is Edwin Jackson, Dodgers AAA.

Seconded, I have my eyes on Claussen already.

Madson may end up in the rotation in the not too distant future.

Hampton had a really strong second half last year so I think he's worth stashing on your bench to see if he really is heating up . . .as much as I hate to say it, cuz he had been AWFUL until last week
