Due to the timing of his injury, he was just beggining to throw at full speed last September. Look for Hernandez to win a rotation spot, defy uninformed critics and show up on everyone's radar by the 2005 All-Star break.
When I followed Runelvys Hernandez during his first stint in the big leagues (2002), I recall thinking he and Oliver Perez were some of the better young, rising arms in baseball. Hernandez had a 8.23 K/9 ratio in the minors compared to Oliver Perez's 9.97.
Of course Hernandez is not the next Oliver Perez, as he is older and less proven. And I know that one slight similarity from the minor leagues does not mean a ton. But if Runelvys Hernandez is worth keeping an eye on.

Rich Harden - 4.5 era or so and walks to many to be a stud yet
Bonderman - will destroy your team era, and whip, wont get many wins on Detroit. Everyones happy with his 2nd half stats last year?
5-7 record doesnt do it for me
Greinke - out of these 3 the best control and will have a better era and whip. Problem is the wins category in KC
Oh yeah not a sleeper but could step back up to bigtime status

Also, Victor Zambrano has also shown flashes of brilliance, surrounded by a fair share of forgettable outings... if somehow he could pull it altogether he might be a bargain this year...
