Fausto Carmona has been a nightmare for the past 1.5 seasons. How could someone who looked like one of the better young arms in baseball during 2007, become so craptastic? Was 2007 a straight up fluke? I remember Torii Hunter saying that hitting his sinker was like hitting a bowling ball. These days, its apparenlty more like tennis balls.
Anyways, do you think he can turn his career around and possibly recapture some of his 2007 success? He was sent down to the minors to work on a few things, and so far the results have been very promising. His stats are:
3 Starts: 0.98 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, 18.1 IP, 11 Hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 17 K, 1.71 GO/FO
Very encouraging signs.
What are your thoughts on Fausto?
