2013 Stinson capped a rather somnambulant campaign in the Huntsville rotation with a surprise September call-up, even earning a start against the Padres on the last day of the season. It may be his last big-league start, however, as the low-90s fastball and flat slider he delivers from a low-three-quarters slot doesn’t fool that many Double-A batters, let alone the world's best. It will take a whole lot of Lake Louie Milk Stout to drown the sorrows of Brewers fans if Stinson ever wins a rotation job, but there’s an outside chance he could carve out a niche as a ROOGY.
2012 It was a strange 2011 campaign for Stinson, who was awful as a starter at Triple-A, found some success out of the bullpen following a demotion, and suddenly found himself in the majors by September. He's a classic fastball/slider type who sits in the low-90s and tends to keep the ball on the ground, but he's never figured out how to miss bats, with a career minor-league rate of just six per nine, with it dropping a bit at every level. He was certainly better as a starter than as a reliever, but it's probably not good enough.
