As posted over the weekend, we were able to narrow down the pool for Starting Pitcher candidates, including those with fewer innings (Adrian Houser) and those coming off the DL (Vincent Velasquez), etc. Now that the field has been narrowed, we are going to vote for our third Starting Pitcher (the fourth & fifth will also be coming from this list).
This is not an easy vote. Cosart and Houser probably have the best stuff of all of these guys, but Cosart has three years on Houser. Clemens and Oberholtzer are probably ready to go today while Nick Tropeano, Kyle Hallock and Luis Ordosgoitti have me excited for what may come. Ross Seaton is a workhorse and is only 22 at Corpus so look for improvement this season. And what will a healthy Velasquez be capable of?
With all that said, here are the 2011 stats for the players. Look them over and vote.
