Interesting that Gaby's name is being thrown around to win the 5th spot in the rotation. I know its unlikely but it will be interesting to see what happens.

On the move: Most likely, Gaby Hernandez will open the year in Double-A. But the 20-year-old right-hander conceivably could win a rotation spot coming out of Spring Training. Even if he doesn't, it will just be a matter of time before he makes his Major League debut

Not if he keeps playing the way he did yesterday.
Well, its still early. He could be dominant (I know unlikely) from now on, you never know. We will just have to wait and see what happens with Gaby!

Possibly, hey maybe the Rays will be receiving Nolasco soon.
I think you may be right...It appears the D-Rays are ready to play "Let's make a deal" then just their regular posturing , also Elsbury may have become despensable by the Red Sox.

Nolasco and Mitre may become Red Soxs or D-Rays very soon

He won't get a shot ahead of Mitre, Garcia, and Petit

edit: and we know how frugal the team is, not like they want to start up Gaby's "clock"

There's no way in hell Ellsbury is traded for Nolasco.

Just throwing this out there: but does anyone else get the feeling that the Marlins organization is hyping Gaby big time? Almost like they want to use him as a/the chip to get that CFer.

The Sox don't have a big need for starting pitching the way the D-Rays do.

Frisaro wrote the statment-but just look what he says-He will open in AA, but he could win a spot in the rotation, but he might not win a spot and if he doesn't win a spot he eventually will win a spot.

It is a bunch of wild double speak

I think you may have hit the nail on the head

Well, he does say "Most likely" but there is a shot of him making the rotation.

There's no way in hell the Rays would accept that. Nolasco for Dukes is more likely.

Our SP candidates with Johnson out and possibly Nolasco traded would be....


Here are their stats this spring (counting the Hurricanes game)


S. Mitre (injured)

Jose Garcia 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K - 0.00 ERA

Yusmeiro Petit 2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 1 K - 13.50 ERA

Gaby Hernandez 2.2 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 3 K - 16.36 ERA

Chris George 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K - 0.00 ERA

Wes Obermueller 2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K - 9.00 ERA

Paul Mildren 1.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 1 K - 40.91 ERA



Narrowing it down.....Obermuller is not the answer and has never been good. Petit could be a total bust. I haven't counted him out yet but everything I've read said his stuff is VERY AVERAGE and he'll be lucky to be a spot starter in the majors. Fredi Gonzalez doesn't see Mitre as a starter and most Marlin fans agree with him. Paul Mildren is completely blowing his chance. Gaby could get major leaguers out now but the Fish won't rush him.

That leaves Chris George....an average pitcher at best who has some upside. It also leaves Jose Garcia who if he continues to pitch well this spring should get our #5 SP role!

I wish Rick Vanden Hurk was here because he would look awesome in our rotation!
