I think, barring a terrible spring, Kyle is pretty much a sure thing for the rotation. He might not have impressed Scott Carson but he looked pretty decent to me in his three starts last year, considering he was just 22.
|2010 - Kyle Drabek||0-3||3||3||0||0||0||0||17.0||18||9||9||2||5||12||4.76||1.35|
His FIP (4.08) and xFIP (3.59) were much lower than his ERA but then it was a very small sample size.
He was terrific in New Hampshire, going 14-9 with a 2.94 ERA, in 27 starts, 162 innings. He had 132 strikeouts and 68 walks.
Kyle is young for the majors and I'm sure will have some growing pains. Toronto is in a tough division for a young pitcher. My guess? 30 starts, 4.40 ERA, 11-11, 190 innings, 150 k and 78 walks.
Give us your guesses.
