    Your comment implied that Peralta and Rondon are in similar situations which is completely untrue. But thanks for the quality input.

    He had 19 starts in AAA though, so I think he has a better than normal chance of being able to stick. We'll see though. I actually like the pick, if he has put the arm troubles behind him for good.

    The thing to like about Rondon for be besides velocity is that I keep saying him praised for his fastball command. Fastball command might be a big deal for a pitcher.

    Hard to lose with this one, really.

    Bad year in the pen - Back to the Tribe

    Good year in the pen - Extendable asset

    Great year in the pen - Probably gets a crack at the rotation in 2014

    Well the loss is if Peralta ends up sticking with the D-Backs and is better than Rondon.

    Not protecting Peralta is still the right choice since he was a pretty surprising choice and I think the DBacks will give him back if he's not producing early on in the season. Kevin Towers loves bullpens.

    Yeah, good stuff and good command. There is a lot to like. I wonder what his ground ball percentages have been?
