BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Graham Godfrey was competing for a rotation spot out of spring training last year, but he has since been passed on the depth chart by a half-dozen starters, and the missed opportunity could seal his fate as a Triple-A mainstay who shuttles to Boston as the need arises.
2012 27-year-old back-of-the-rotation pitcher, Graham Godfrey commands a deep arsenal of average offerings.

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat as I'm ready to get amped up for the 2012 season. Rotation Q's for a deeper league: Do Tyson Ross and Kris Medlen have chances of carving out rolls with those rotations currently influx?
(Bringon2012 from Kansas)
Absolutely not to Medlen. Hes good, but hell need to prove hes recovered from TJ, and the Braves just have soooooo many options merely vying for the fifth spot (Minor, Teheran, Delgado, Vizcaino, etc.), most of which are now younger and more talented than Medlen. Medlen's probably 10th on their SP depth chart. Not a bad problem to have for a team, but for a Medlen owner it is. Ross has a slightly higher a chance, but the As also brought in quite the haul of starter candidates this winter between Jarrod Parker, Brad Peacock, and Tom Milone, plus mainstays (while healthy) of Brett Anderson, Dallas Braden, Brandon McCarthy, and (to a lesser extent) Guillermo Moscoso. Then you have the usual Ross-esque fill-ins like Graham Godfrey and Josh Outman, so itll be tough. (Derek Carty)
