Pretty much every writeup of Lowther has him as an MLB quality pitcher. I guess you know better from your random dismissal of him. Wells isn't a rock star but he's a guy who will likely find his way into a decent MLB career as a back of the rotation starter or mid-relief guy.

'Decent' is a low bar. So maybe you should just choose your words more carefully.

Also, isn't Keegan Akin a decent prospect? Backend starter type? Struggling a bit in AAA right now, but had a good year last year.

I know just what I read.  Which seems to be bad, Decent means someone who can contribute consistently at major league level. Like Givens.

Again, pretty much every single writeup on Lowther disputes what you're saying. Are you a troll or what? 

I think you hit that one square on the head.

From MLB.com

"Lowther's best pitch is a fastball that sits at 87-90 mph "

"His control is average, with room for improvement, "

Scouting grades:  Overall 45.

Also this year he has walked 15 guys in 22 innings.  So a slow tosser with no control. I wonder what happens to guys like that in the big leagues?

I wouldn’t get too worked up about the walks just yet.   He averaged 2.5 per 9 over a full season last year.   Unless his high walk rate continues for another couple months, I’d assume it’s a SSS blip.

Long and short, nobody’s going to win this argument right now.   Let’s just see if he has success in AA this year.    It’s been a mixed bag so far but he’s had his good outings and his ERA is solid right now.   Too soon in the season to draw any conclusions.

Sedlock pitched a 6-inning shutout tonight - rain in the 7th, I assume.

He's 2-0 now with an ERA around 2 - maybe he can pitch most of the season at Bowie.
