2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rockies are dead last in QS with only 36 in 106 GP. The only pitchers who have given them a 50% or better shot at a quality start are Chad Bettis (8/13 - hurt) and Chris Rusin (7/12 - free agent). Jon Gray looks like Eddie Butler 2.0. Other recent top picks Kyle Freeland and Tyler Anderson can't stay healthy. Please give me some reason to hope that the Rockies pitching won't be as terrible next season.
(matzabal from Denver)
Man, I dunno if I can do that. I wouldn't be so quick to give up on Gray just yet (or Butler, for that matter). Even with diminished stuff since his college days I think Gray can still be a solid enough Major League starter, at least in a neutral context. Butler's shoulder issues seem uncomfortably Bedardian, and I think they have contributed a good bit to his stalled development. Always going to be awfully tough for them to lure FA hurlers there, and their best arm in the minors right now is either a recently drafted high schooler or Antonio Senzatela, who's 20 with a very good fastball but lagging secondaries. (Wilson Karaman)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What type of fantasy impact can Chris Rusin have next year? What type of career do you see him having? The Cubs seem to like him...can he pitch in a rotation over time?
(Bryant from Dearborn, MI)
Very little. It's more of a middle relief profile for me long-term for me. (Bret Sayre)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)By this time in 2014, Chris Rusin is: a) In Chicago's rotation? b) a mop-up guy in the bullpen? c) In Iowa? Is there any reason to think Rusin can continue to get major league hitters out missing as few bats as he does?
(sitrick2 from Minneapolis, MN)
Guys like Rusin make me nervous. I'd like to see how his cutter plays out of the bullpen, but I really feel like he's a sixth/seventh starter type. Iowa or Chicago depends on the health of other people, in that case. (Harry Pavlidis)
