I thought Levinski was in AA ball.Ramp how you feel about Snare,Baker and Bumb?Can any of them be call up this year or have a realistic shot at starting rotation next season ?I'm guessing Levinski and Hutchinson won't ready until late in 2004.

6. Don Levinski, rhp

Age: 20. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-4. Wt.: 200. Drafted: HS?Weimar, Texas, 2001 (2nd round). Signed by: Dennis Cardoza (Expos).

Background: Levinski came south from Montreal along with Justin Wayne in the Cliff Floyd trade. In his final start with the Expos, Levinski?s velocity dropped into the mid-80s and an MRI later revealed a slight rotator-cuff tear. The Marlins opted to keep him in the deal and subsequent tests showed a strain rather than a tear.

Strengths: After being shut down for the final month of 2002, Levinski threw a handful of bullpens at instructional league and was healthy. His heavy sinker arrives at 88-93 mph with hard, late life. When he?s in a groove, he can almost get by with his fastball alone. He also features a power curve and a solid changeup. He has a sound delivery that he repeats with ease. He has a quiet personality but is competitive and confident.

Weaknesses: Walks have been a concern as Levinski learns to command his darting arsenal. After last year?s health scare, he?ll need to prove he can stay in the rotation for a full season. He also must use his changeup more often.

The Future: Having dominated the Midwest League for four months, Levinski will probably open 2003 at Jupiter. His maturity and repertoire make him a candidate to move quickly.

Ramp, didnt Henkel get traded to the Tigers in that Redman deal, or am I delusional?

I like Levinski and Snare. Also, I read that Hutchinson is more suited for baseball than his brother (I think I read that in the Herald or Sun-Sentinel). It seems at the A level, we got some hopefuls - but it is a long way til the show.

I thought Bump would have been a more conservative move over Willis. Bump could get the job done in the Bigs, but obviously the Marlins went for the bigger prospect and more buzz with Willis. I hope this doesnt come back to bite us in the... :mischief2

I think you're right - he was sent to Detroit (along with Nate Robertson and Gary Knotts, if memory serves me correctly). I hope Nate Bump gets his chance - he's definately earned it over the past couple years, not months...

I hope Bump gets a chance. He's worked hard to come back from his surgery and has done well since then.
Does anyone know how Tejera is after his fall?
