First off, Bronson isnt my boy. Secondly, the large difference between Bailey and Dumatrait, you know aside from age, stuff, upside and all of that.... when Bailey throws strikes, people swing and miss a lot more often than they do when Dumatrait throws strikes.
Dumatrait against righties this year:
Entire Season ERA IP H R ER HR BB SO GO/AO AVG
vs Right 3.53 86.2 78 39 34 7 37 47 0.87 .239
Check out that walk to strikeout ratio. That does not bode well at all for current of future success. He is 26 years old, so improvement isn't likely to all of a sudden come along.
He is striking out 1 more batter per 9 innings than he is walking against righties.
I just don't have enough faith in him to throw enough strikes at the major league level to be successful. Honestly, I would rather see Cueto or Fisher called up from AA before Dumatrait because I just think they would have more success.
