Re: Pitching so far AA and below...
My early calls:
1.Sam Lecure: While his ERA doesn't look good now, his K numbers and control tell me better things are in store for him in the future as he adjusts.
2.Bailey: I already have made my case for him in other posts.
3.Travis Wood: solid start, though I think he will improve when he is allowed to drive foward on the mound later in the season.
4.C.Fisher: older pitcher with some pop on his fastball, has a Brad Penny type of look, needs to get promoted by Summer.
5.Ward: Big disappointment, not impressed with Ward at all. He doesn't throw a power sinker and his secondary pitches have been average.
6.C.Vasquez: Nice start for him as he has regained his pop on the fastball now that it has been 2 years since TJ surgury.
7.Cueto: Raw power guy that will live up in the zone. Has gotten smacked somewhat, but also giving his own smacks in forms of K's.
8.T.Pelland: Holding his own in AA after getting overpromoted, hopefully he can adjust to put in a solid season.
9.T.Chick: Decent start for the highly debated pitcher. Hopefully he turns it on and developes that raw talent.
10.Che(Carlos)Guevara: dominant start
Some others to keep a eye on: Young,Val,Shafer and Medlock
