YearComment
2004 Here's a scary thought: D'Amico's 1751/3 innings in 2003 were a career high. It's hard to sell yourself as an innings sponge when you don't pick up enough innings. D'Amico also posted a career-low strikeout rate, and fought the same battles with nagging injuries he does every season. The memory of 2000 (2.66 ERA in 1621/3 IP) will get him more opportunities, but he's basically Jeff Suppan without the durability. For the Tribe, he's this year's veteran stopgap until the kids are ready.
2003 On the one hand, he was only brought in as the teamís fifth starter, but despite his track record for repeated breakdowns, Phillips noted how special heíd been in 2000, as if that was likely to happen again. After running off quality starts in eight of his first 10 games, it even began to seem like a reasonable proposition. Then came the little breakdowns, the declining endurance, and heightened frustration as the team didnít contend. One of baseballís most massive pitchers wonít be back with the Mets, but the Pirates are willing to take their chances.
2002 How much sunshine are you expecting to find in this space? DíAmico had arm problems in high school and has had them in every year since, heís a really oversized human being, and heís coming off of a shoulder surgery that only Orel Hershiser has ever been able to survive professionally. DíAmico is an awful lot of fun to watch when heís on a roll, but the likelihood that heíll enjoy another roll like 2001 is remote.
2001 Brewers pitchers have a long history of major arm injuries, but none ever did what Jeff DíAmico has done: come all the way back and pitch even better than before. If you didnít see him last year, he really was as good as his numbers, living on the black and changing speeds like a veteran. He wasnít overworked, and thereís little reason to expect another breakdown.
2000 Shoulder surgery has held him back for the last two years. During his rehab outings at Beloit in 1999, his fastball was around 89 mph, which is reportedly as good as itís going to get. An enormous human being, his conditioning and mechanics have always been major issues, and most of his 1999 rehab efforts were cut short by shoulder tightness. Heís not a great bet to come back.
1998 A mountain of flesh on the mound. From anywhere in the ballpark, DíAmico looks like the largest human being Iíve ever seen play baseball. Yes, Randy Johnson is taller. So is Mark Acre. DíAmico is just bigger. The battles with weight are the only thing that can keep him from being outstanding; Garner has been very careful about watching his pitch counts, so if that continues, he may avoid serious injury.
1997 Young flamethrower with great control and great stuff. Heís 21 years old, and being handed over to the man who made Cal Eldred a Jello-armed retread. Cal Eldred may come back, if he can hang around the majors for a few years and his arm heals. I hope he and DíAmico have had many long talks. If youíve got him in a perpetual league and he gets hot, see if you can trade him for comparable prospects that donít work as pitchers.
