Make your predictions: Marc Rzepczynski

Another lefty that got his first taste of major league action last year. Scrabble had a pretty amazing year, he started the season in New Hampshire, playing Double-A after spending all of 2008 in A-ball Lansing. He made 14 starts there, before moving up to Las Vegas, two starts later he was called up to Toronto. He's made a very quick climb through our system after being drafted in the 5th round of the 2007 draft out of the University of California, Riverside, the first from that round to make the majors. 

In his 16 minor league starts he had a 2.66 ERA, with 40 walks and 104 strikeouts in 88 innings. His major league line looked like this:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Marc Rzepczynski 2-4 11 11 0 0 0 0 61.1 51 27 25 7 30 60 3.67 1.32

So between the two he pitched 149.1 innings.

CHONE predicts Marc will be 5-4 in 18 starts, 98 innings, 48 BB, 95 K.

Bill James didn't rate him. Likely couldn't fit Scrabble's name into his database.

I'll admit I was very impressed with Marc, a 23 year old who can strikeout a guy an inning in his first year above A-ball. 

So give us your guess on 2010 win-loss, starts, innings, ERA and anything else you might like to add.
