Sure, I'll buy that in theory, but the numbers don't particularly play it out- he wasn't Mr. Control before surgery, either. His career professional mark before 2006 is 4.43 walks per nine innings. He served up like 5.6 per nine in 118 FSL innings, plus 3.5 per nine in the Sally League before that.Originally Posted by dougdirt
If he's still pitching well in AAA, I give him a September look-see. If I need a LOOGY, there's Mike Venafro and Brian Shackleford sitting right there. I don't think Dumatrait is needed (nor is he fit) for situational duty.
