hypothetical question

Postby aethomp1 » Sun Aug 19, 2012 10:38 am

If Kris Medlen holds a rotation spot the rest of the year, which I think he will, and goes through the off season and into next year as a starter, what would his rank look like for 2013?

I just picked him up in a keeper league and ran across this recent article on fangraphs.


"For the future, I believe the Braves will look to make Medlen a permanent rotation member. This gives Medlen some value in keeper and dynasty leagues, if that is made certain. Of course, most keeper and dynasty leagues allow for the selections to be made close to the start of next year, so a more clear picture will be painted of his role by then. But if the trade deadline has not been reached in your league, taking a risk on buying Medlen as a future starter looks like a good one to me. He is not a top tier starter by any means, but he combines extremely good command of three pitches with the ability to get both lefties and righties out. The Braves do not have much in terms of right-handed relievers or relief prospects, but their future rotation also looks a lot different now than it did earlier in the season. If he finishes off the year well, I expect Medlen to start next year in the rotation as well with an extended innings limit."

That's along the lines of what I was thinking. Speaking as a Braves fan, and not in terms of fantasy though he has been good in that department as well, I love watching this guy pitch. He has no fear whatsoever of anyone in the box. Instead of nibbling, he pounds the zone and makes the hitter beat him. I'm glad he finally got back into the rotation

Yeah, he's been impressive and he has that bulldog attitude you like to see in young pitchers. It'll be interesting to see what the Braves do with all of these arms, but I certainly hope he's not put back in the bullpen the rest of the year. I'm not sure Hudson is really healthy though.

Is he someone worth grabbing for the rest of the season? Maybe swing a trade.

I think so. He has been dominant as a starter.
