The latest in a long line of fat righthanded relievers who allow far too many baserunners. Lots of hits, pedestrian strikeout numbers in the minors. Home run rate is pretty good. He’s essentially Gryboski with better control. Big whoop. Went to UMass, drafted by the Orioles in the eighth round, kept getting promoted less because he was doing anything particularly well but because there wasn’t any point in not promoting him. Eventually made it to the majors, pitching mediocre baseball for the Orioles and Indians, spent 2004 with the Cardinals organization and began 2005 with the Brewers, who dumped him even though he was actually pitching rather well by his standards, then Richmond in the second half. Doesn’t really belong in the majors, doesn’t really not belong.
