Am I the only Pressly hater?  What has he done?  8.44 ERA?  Relievers are not even charged with inherited runners.  Whip 1.31 what is to like about that?  Batting .286 against  him.  

MLB Career Stats 14 14 3.67 179 0 1 213.1 157 1.33 - replacement level. 

 

This is a 6th inning reliever, not a stud. Its time to test some minor league arms.

with this bullpen I'll take league average or replacement level. There's not a lot of options right now.

That's not replacement level.

I am not the paranoid you're looking for.

Pressley is fine to have in your bullpen.  The problem isn't him, it's that he's being miscast as our best reliever.  Which may may not be false, just really, really sad.

Yeah, Pressley's not the problem. The biggest and most frustrating problem is that they haven't gotten production (yet?) from a prospect pipeline supposedly fairly loaded with higher-ceiling, high-velo guys.

For whatever reasons, and they vary.

 

If the Twins released a current bullpen arm, there's a good chance that guy latches on with some other team and occupies the last seat on their bullpen bench for a short stint, like Fien and others did last year. The thing is, we have four of those guys in our pen. Sigh.

 

Pressley's two steps up from that.

Another big fly from Pressly. Pressly isn't a great pitcher. But he isn't as bad as he has been recently. I still think there is likely something physically wrong with him.
