Dewey's Sleeper Arms for '09

First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone and your loved ones!

 

Here are 3 sleeper pitching prospects worth keeping an eye on in 2009.

 

For those of you in deep keeper/dynasty leagues, take notice!

 

RHP Jordan Lyles (Born: October 19, 1990 - 6'4", 185 lbs)

2008 Stats (Appy/NYP):

4.23 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 55.1 IP, 68 Ks, 17 BBs, 1.04 GO/AO, .235 avg

-Clean effortless delivery

-Possesses low 90s fastball with added velocity expected

-Good command of FB, CB, CH

-Big strong athletic kid was 3 sport star in high school

 

RHP Randall Delgado (Born: February 9, 1990 - 6'3", 165 lbs)

2008 Stats (Appy):

3.13 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 69 IP, 81 Ks, 30 BBs, 1.57 GO/AO, .249 avg

-Has a loose and live arm with potential for more velocity

-Low 90s fastball, can touch mid 90s on occasion

-Needs to really  improve offspeed stuff and control

-Strong groundball tendancies

 

RHP Jason Knapp (Born: August 31, 1990 - 6'5", 215 lbs)

2008 Stats (GCL):

2.61 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 31 IP, 38 Ks, 12 BBs, 0.82 GO/AO, .228 avg

-Clean mechanics

-Fastball sits in the 94-97 mph range

-Throws downhill, very heavy

-Secondary stuff needs work, must decide between CB or SL

 

In my opinion, there is a lot of potential in these arms.
