During my travels over the past 10 months, I have seen a lot of young pitchers. Christian Friedrich and Hellickson really stand out to me. They will be future stars IMO and both have a 50/50 shot at a call sooner rather than later.
Thanks to a sub par draft performance, I am looking at 4 question marks and need a lottery ticket to pay off.
So, the question, in a deep league and guys like Ian Snell, Braden and Mike Leake sucked up, who should I gamble on, Hellickson, Friedrich, or other?
I hate holding on to a minor leaguer but we do have 7 reserve spots. All I would have to do is drop Joba.
Can look at Hellickson if you like but you're not going to get anything substantial from him for a while.
