This is incredibly broad and outside of Top 30 is more appropriate and realisticA return of a prospect outside of a teams top ten is the most likely..
We need instances of unimpressive starting pitchers with unimpressive underlying statistics netting what is determined a decent haul at time of trade
Plutko's first start was ultimately good as he only allowed 2 runs in 6 innings. He walked 0, struck out 4, allowed 2 home runs, 14 fly balls...does any of this sound familiar?
It's a tiny sample size of 15 curve balls thown by Plutko in 2020. Statcast shows 1 total swinging strike from a CB to Abreu at the bottom of the strike zone. He's thrown 7 out of the zone and hasn't draw a chase yet. McCann shot a CB into the bleachers and Moncada floated one into RF for a single.
I trust what people have written about that he's gotten better in the offseason and I realize he's only had 1 opportunity to show it so far, but his first start was very much what we've seen from him before. There is really nothing to suggest he has value around the league like some are suggesting.
This'll be my last post on the subject as this topic has now been beaten into the ground.
