    Of all the guys on the staff right now.. This is a question for everyone.. Who's the least likely to help this year?
    To me, after thinking about it.. It's probably DeLeon. If Bedrosian continues to struggle a few more weeks, I might change my answer to him.
    Because of this, I think I am changing my answer on who should be sent down. Earlier I said Romano. Now I would rather have DeLeon sent down.

    Re: The Rotation

    Have they made the roster move to activate Sonny yet?

    I'm thinking there's a high probability he passes through waivers.

    You could feel that Bedrosian move coming while watching him pitch last night. There was just nothing there.

    Re: The Rotation

    Bedrosian’s fastball was at around 91-93 last night. Most of his career, he was at 94-96. I’m guessing that was the problem, and unless he gets his velocity back up, it’s hard to see him succeed in the majors.

    I think his velocity is fine overall. He averaged 92.8 this season (he has hovered around 93 since 2018). He's had some crummy HR luck after some extreme luck last season. Bottom line is you can't average 9.5 BB/9 and keep a job

    Yeah, the command isn’t there either. But he’s been dropping in velocity for the past few years. A bad combination and maybe connnected.

    Fangraphs has it a bit different

    His velocity is down from his peak but was back up this year.

    It certainly looks like 2016 was an outlier for him but was remarkably consistent during the dip. That's why I'm not automatically pointing to that as the issue but I'm sure it's a contributing factor
