    Take Dedunos stats in July and August, yes he was injured later and suffered statistically but in July and August he was our best pitcher

    keep your stats, keep your pitchers, but we will be laughing stock of league again, if Deduno is in Rotation, we will have a chance to win every time he pitches, is there a stat for that?

    Dominate?

    Lets look at 2012:

    WHIP = 1.544
    SO/9 = 6.5
    BB/9 = 6.0

    Man, we need 4 more just like him!

    DOMINICAN WINTER LEAGUE

    Player of the Week – Samuel Deduno, RHP



    Deduno made one start this week. The right-hander threw six shutout innings. He gave up just four hits, walked one and struckout nine. In 20.2 innings so far in the DWL, he has given up no runs on 13 hits. He’s walked nine, but he has struckout 26.

    yes he had an eye problem and hid it, if you havent seen how well he is doing in WInter ball, what sources are you searching, try Seth Stohs

    I'm a total strikeout rube, and he has strikeout material, but you'll notice by his meager 6.5 K/9 last year that he didn't get nearly enough of them. That's because he's so "ineffectively wild" the batters don't have to take the bat off their shoulders. When your control is so bad that every batter can be Mauer-like selective, you have to go back to the drawing board.

    Deduno's last three major league starts. Don't read about him tearing up winterball either.

    ;but lets hear from the guy who knows the most about his pitching...his catcher

    Doumit “He fits the mold of an effectively wild pitcher,” continued Doumit. “He’s always going to be like that.“He’s always going to be a high-walk, high-strikeout kind of guy, but if he can harness it, you don’t see too many pitchers with natural movement like that, and it’s a testament to him.”

    the problem is, he is virtually uncatchable, but if Im the twins, I find a way to solve those problems,

    Yeah, he did clear waivers. How did that happen? Could've been grabbed in the Rule 5. Was free to find a job with any other team (Florida, Houston).

    Evidently we were watching a different guy.

    He's great that's why he cleared waivers and signed a minor league deal.

    Liriano can dominate at times and has phenomenal stuff as well. He even had a no-hitter in the ML level, that would prove he could be virtually unhittable sometimes. Deduno still needs to prove himself. I like Deduno, but he still needs to be consistent and be able to find the strikezone in order to have any success in the ML.

    Ninth year will be the charm?
    He has been working on pitching for 9 years between the majors and the minors.

    Don't see any of that with Plouffe.
    The thing I saw right away in Valencia when he came up, he was blaming everybody else for his lack of talent, I remember him standing at the plate looking at the sky, like he was saying, how could these umps be so stupid? When in truth he was struck out by a good pitch.
