Hoffman was comeing off an extended DL stint last year as he was kind of rusty to start off the year, but didnt show any signs of lingering injury or reason that he would hit the DL again to me. I wouldnt bank on any Padre reliever haveing extended value on account of Hoffman gettting hurt, hence vulture saves, if I were you guys.
D. Davis seems to be the steal of the draft out of the pitchers mentioned reading this. 2004 stats : 207.1INN, 34GS, 12W, 12L, 3.39 ERA, 1.307WHIP, 166K's, and 24QS ( QS - Quality Start = at least 6INN with 3ER or less allowed ) which was tied with 3 other pitchers for 4th among all pitchers in MLB last year.
All the SP mentioned except maybe Jerome Williams will probably go before him on account of name recognition in most drafts makeing him a great steal if he lasts until the 14/15th round or later. Credit wkelly91

, for enlightening me to him as he really should have been on my radar sooner.
