Cactus: Samardzija's rotation hopes with Cubs dwindle


Recommended Posts

Monday's Cactus League roundup: Bill Hall hit a three-run homer off Samardzija, who gave up five runs in the first inning after getting the first two outs, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Chicago 9-6.

Good - he has potential to be a very solid arm. Kick him down to the minors and let him work on a couple of pitches other than his fastball and slider. It would be a nice luxury to keep him out of the bigs and let him develop at a slower pace.

I never thought he was all that great a prospect to begin with, nice fastball with very little secondary offerings and mediocre (at best) control. More lucky then good last year with his 1.41 WHIP.

Yup, I don't think he's going to be a good starter, doesn't have the secondary stuff that say, Joba Chamberlain has. Bullpen is probably a better option for him.
