2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amy MiLB pitchers you've circled to help in the coming months? Pitching arms have blown up, on my team at least, and I need more upside than the MLB waiver wire flotsam.
(Sir Nerdlington from Colorado)
Brent Honeywell is the obvious name. He struggled in his last start in Durham, but I think he's going to get a taste of major-league competition this summer. Nobody has more confidence than him. I'm going to throw out a weird name. Nik Turley. He was just promoted to Triple-A. The Twins bullpen is a mess & he's been transitioned to a left-handed Devenski-type multi-inning role in relief. I think he's a weird, but potentially useful guy in a crazy deep league. (George Bissell)
