Greeneville Astros: Carlos Quevedo

Carlos Quevedo
How did he get here?: Signed contract prior to 2007 season
Stats: 6'1", 222 lbs, Throws: Right
Age as of April 1, 2010: 20

We can't do the splits with Quevedo, as he's with the Venezuelan Winter League, and we're not going to break down five innings of Winter League ball. So we're going to try something a little different...

2007 (VSL)11/954.12.32/1.0325:1514.12.51.67
2008 (VSL)14/1468.11.98/0.9853:1127.01.44.82
2009 (GRN)13/1354.25.60/1.3955:999.11.56.11

Did you see what I did there? Bam! A couple of things to note: That strikeout/walk ratio is disgusting. But so is that home run rate. Nine of them in 54.2IP. Still, his ERA and WHIP took a considerable jump, but the walk rate was extremely low. So it seems to me that hitters were able to adjust pretty well to his pitches. But the strikeouts are pretty encouraging.

Citizen Steve, what say you on Carlos Quevedo?
If you look at his August numbers, he was starting to put it together. Especially in the last 5 starts. He's a big-bodied kid who will fill out and might have more power.

I wish we could look at his August numbers, Citizen Steve, I wish we could...
