Interesting that they’re keeping Jurrigans in the minors for so long. He’s not my favorite. AAA “phenom” Julio Teheran would probably perform about as well as Delgado or Minor has…his Gwinnett record hasn’t been great.
Not sure those big money free agent pitchers the Angels and Marlins signed have pitched that much better. Look at the Yankees rotation,,.they’ve spent a lot more than any other team, and they’re a mess. Same deal with the Red Sox. I see where one of the Phillies big guns is hurting…there are few guarantees with pitching. We’ll see how long the Nationals staff holds up. The Mets signed Santana, and he was hurt for several years. Their ace is a knuckleballer they signed off the minor league scrap heap.
If the Braves tried to trade Minor, Jurrigans, or Delgado, teams would line up to take them. There’s really not anything a team could offer that would make the trade worthwhile. Players as good as Diaz or Hinske…nothing much better.
