YearComment
2006 Douglass always seemed to post good numbers while in the Orioles` system, but that never translated to the majors. Last season it seemed as if it was all coming together, but then it turned. Douglass went from a 3.32 ERA in his first seven starts to a 7.52 in the rest of the season. He denies any injury, so perhaps advance scouting caught up to him. Waived by the Tigers and claimed by the Indians, the Hiroshima Carp of the Japanese Central League hooked him for $500,000.
2003 After four starts in Rochester, Douglass was called up when Jason Johnson broke his finger. After three bad starts, the Orioles hit a stretch where, due to schedule and rainouts, they didnít need a fifth starter for three weeks, so Douglass only pitched once. The rest didnít help, as he continued to pitch poorly, from the rotation and the pen, in Baltimore and Rochester. Since he doesnít have any one outstanding pitch, heís going to have to rely on his balance of mediocrity to fool hitters.
2002 Douglass owns one of the most consistent performance records you'll see from any pitcher, with some improvements added in 2001 courtesy of an improved curve. There's no flash, no ten-strikeout games, no low-hitters, just a steady string of sinkers pounded into the dirt, six or seven innings at a time, with three or four runs allowed. Douglass is a big guy who could turn into an innings-eater in the majors, a fourth-starter type. He's a better bet to work out than Josh Towers or Willis Roberts.
