Garza called up!

Twins purchased the contract of RHP Matt Garza from Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins didn't say when Garza would debut, but Friday seems like a good guess. After Brad Radke tonight, the Twins have Johan Santana and Carlos Silva scheduled for the following two days. Garza, who was 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA and 33 strikeouts in five starts for Rochester, is worth using in AL-only leagues right away. He'd be worth grabbing in mixed leagues if he gets off to a good start.

Man, am I glad I still have a high waiver spot in my AL-only league after losing out on Carlos Lee and Bobby Abreu... :-/ Garza is gonna go Anthony Reyes on all of us, you watch.

I'd rather he go King Felix '05 ;-)

Either way, I'm excited.

How good is he? Who is he on par with, as far as young guys who have pitched in the bigs this year?

Where does he fall in this group of young pitchers?

Francisco Liriano
Justin Verlander
Jered Weaver
Cole Hamels
Jon Lester
Jeremy Sowers
Matt Cain
Zach Miner
Chuck James
Chad Billingsley
Anthony Reyes

The tiers aren't really ranked in any particular order, but is a good idea of where I have them with their piers.

**Not really a right now ranking more of a "what will they be in a year or two" type of ranking

Liriano
Verlander

Cain
Billingsley
Hamels

Lester
Reyes
Garza

Sowers
James
Miner
