2014-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Multi part question...It may be too early to tell, but the Indians seemed to have gotten burned by selecting Mitch Brown and Kieran Lovegrove with high picks in the 2012 draft. What did you think of these two at the time they were drafted, and do you like the combo of Hockin and Sheffield better? Do you think either of these recent 2014 draftees can become a higher end MOR starter?
(username49 from Ohio)
Brown has a solid delivery and had a deep repertoire when drafted, but his lack of a plus-plus offering limited his ceiling until he honed the secondaries, which just hasn't happened thus far (particularly in the command department). Lovegrove relies on a hip-whip strategy for torque that can be difficult to repeat, timing-wise, and his stat line is feeling the burn of an inconsistent delivery. Hockin has a solid frame and a very stable delivery that is a bit light on power. He is another example of a pitcher whose secondaries will determine his ultimate utility at the highest level.
