Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 6/7/12

0

Paul Sporer

Hughes, Hutchison, and Leake bring the VP jelly to BP this week.

With a big wave of interleague on the horizon, pitcher values vary in a way we haven’t seen yet this year as they face new teams in new venues.  For example, the Angels and Athletics have featured some useful starting pitchers this year, the former more so than the latter, but as they each head into Coors Field to face the Rockies over the next week, there could be some trouble on the horizon.  This could be especially problemsome for Ervin Santana, Bartolo Colon, and Tom Milone given their home run rates.

Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 5/17/12

Friedrich and Milone headline this week's VP list

Pitchers are starting to drop to like flies, making Value Picks even more important as they move from luxuries to necessities as replacements.  Cory Luebke has a partially torn UCL, Jeff Niemann suffered a broken leg and hit the 60-day disabled list, Danny Duffy is likely set for Tommy John surgery, Vance Worley joined the DL ranks with elbow inflammation, and Joe Wieland (hardly a mixed league stalwart five minutes into his career), went down earlier this month with an elbow injury of his own.

Ten Prospects on the Bubble, Part Two

12

Bradley Ankrom

Profiling five more former top prospects, this time from the NL, who have to make a move this season or risk being labeled busts.

Introduction and Part I

Christian Friedrich, LHP, Colorado Rockies (24)
With Brian Matusz off the board, Colorado grabbed arguably the second-best college left-hander in the 2008 draft when it snapped up Friedrich with the 25th pick. He signed quickly and was able to make 11 starts in the Northwest and South Atlantic Leagues, striking out 65 batters over 48 innings.

Future Shock: Future Top Dogs, NL

23

Kevin Goldstein

A look back and a look ahead to who could the top prosects in the senior circuit next year.

One of the most frequent questions I get, be it via e-mail, chats, or the comment sections in the articles, is which player on (insert team here) has the best shot at moving into the Top 101. That's a much different question from who is the best prospect not in the Top 101, as the focus need to move solely to growth potential. Building on last year's "Future Top Dogs" series, let's keep that category in this year's version, while also taking an honest look at last year's prognostications.
