Jose Acevedo a Sleeper?

Postby Lime » Sat Feb 26, 2005 5:23 pm

This guy has stunk big time as a starter, but when you look at his splits from last year, can he be considered a sleeper as a reliever?

17.0 IP, 7 H, 1 BB, 10 K, 0.00 ERA

It's kind of a small sample, but what do you think?

Acevedo's got good stuff, and he probably won't hurt you too badly as a reliever. I don't see him near the back end of the bullpen, though, with Graves, Weathers, Mercker, Weber, and perhaps Ryan Wagner on the staff. Watch announcements out of spring training, but I see Acevedo as a spot starter/long reliever.

I got burnt last year with so I am staying far away on draft day. He will go undrafted in most leagues so I will see how he does and then pick him in FAgency

Some interesting stats on Acevedo: gave up a .318 avg on balls hit into play. That's unusually unlucky I'd expect that to come down. The other thing is his homer rate which is a pretty pitiful 1.7 per 9 and needs to come down. I think he's got too much talent not to be able to improve, so I say he is a viable WW pickup after month 1 of the season as a potential Scott Shields type.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
